Season Ticket news coming this week from Sheffield Wednesday

Recommended Posts

Easy for me to say as I dont have a season ticket, but think there may be an option, not for a refund of next seasons ticket money, but a discount on the following season to compensate. 

 

DC been honourable in the past re refunds, so see no reason why it wouldn't be on the table  but as a club also need to retain cash flow in the short term, for those who want to and can afford it.

 

Thinking about cash flow, what about new kits this year?

 

Maybe the club could add a new level of membership, add to the current benefits to include the new shirt and access to streamed games on ifollow this season and next, maybe around £150?

The club can keep my money for this season, I spent it ages ago and never thought I’d see it again anyway, also mass refunds would hurt the club financially.

 

As for next season, if we can’t attend a number of games I’d accept a discount off my ticket the following year.

Absolutely bang on.

 No idea why anybody would want a refund . Was money paid out ages ago and will obviously help the club to survive . I’ve only attended about 10 matches this ne was a waste of money long before this

Really? You may not want one - it's pretty obvious to see why others do.

I've heard each season ticket holder receives a piece of Cakeball. With over half of Cakeball still available, everyone should receive a nice chunk to share with other season ticket holders or members.

I can't see them giving out a free replica kit to 17k people - that's the cash they need in the back pocket. 

 

A reasonable season ticket offer that will appease those who have missed the rest of the season and tempt more back next IS the way forward. 

 

Don't mess this up DC - it's not difficult, be sympathetic with the fans - pull on heart strings and give them a mafia season ticket - an offer they can't refuse!

I want my money back..........I am not in a position to be acting like some generous benefactor.... and especially not to help fund some of the current "non-players"

I have amended it for you. Did you missed the last time the chairman offer fans a refund for tickets, he banned them for life for attending any more games. I know this situation is different.

 

For me it is simple this season you have paid your money offer fans with tickets a free to view streaming service to watch the games, then next season depending when it starts wait and see.

 

If it starts in September/October and fans cannot attend they have a right to a refund of their money. Good luck getting it though as I believe that money is already long gone and been used to pay the players to sit at home for the last 3 months.

What would help the club survive is the players acting honourably and taking a pay cut. Even halving their wages would leave them very, very rich compared to the ordinary working man.

I'd booked to see Francis Rossi which was cancelled. I didn't say, keep the money. He's a millionaire why would I ?  (and I know theatres will struggle, that's why I'll be going a lot later).

I want and expect a full refund for the remaining matches this season. We have 2 adult Season Tickets in the South Stand, price averages at around £28 per person, per match - that's £280. I don't earn £280 in a week, some of our players probably earn that in a few minutes.

 

End of.

Says it all.  I want, expect, and am entitled to, a full refund on any matches this season and next that I am not allowed to attend.

Keep reading that the ‘club can keep the money’. The money won’t go towards the academy, ground, facilities etc. 

 

The money will go straight to millionaire under performing footballers. 
 

 

 

My thoughts exactly.

I have a couple of ST's as others have said the current season has been accounted for so not fussed. I do think that the option should be there so you can choose a refund (some people may need the cash during this time) and maybe offer others a voucher for the shop, could be used for shirts or matches etc.

Yeah I agree but our pathetic lot are not going to do that are they . I want the club to survive and we all paid this money out at least a year ago . I’ll re phrase. If you are potted and struggling I can see why you would consider a refund . To anybody else, again I don’t understand why anybody would want to jeopardise the clubs future in any way .

I think there is more chance of having a Co-Vid vaccine in circulation and ready for people to use by the end of the week, than getting a football player at any team to take a pay cut to help the clubs out.

 

But unfortunately years of mismanagement at all levels of football have allowed the game to now be dominated by tv companies and agents and the mugs in the stands is the one ultimately paying for it, either by merchandise, tickets or satellite subscriptions.
