10mins tops, how many staff do you need to do this, if had started at the end of the season, most if not all of us would have had their refund by now

As many have said in this thread it’s the lack of communication that really hurts. But with our club this is not out of character, time and time again they fail to communicate effectively or at all. And what happens at the end of this season, great if you can roll it into next seasons ticket but what if your circumstances have changed, gone to uni, moved away, work commitments, child care commitments etc. will a refund be available. Despite our chairman being a rich man it’s clear that cash is in short supply and with that situation unlikely to improve with the new covid measures being put in place I am beginning to get worried about our financial position.

Think it would be illegal not to offer refunds for a service not provided.

We opted for vouchers for tickets to future games, but as fans aren't still allowed we're probably at the bottom of the pile to be dealt with.

We aren’t being offered refunds for this season.

We haven't been yet but I think if it comes to the end of the season and many season ticket holders have hardly seen a game live, which seems plausible as things stand, an offer will need to be made.

 

Surely at that point they can't just say carry your money over or lose it? It might well not be like for like product on offer if we are relegated. I think they will have to offer some form of refund when the season ends, just as they had to last season but until they know when or whether part of the product that has been sold can be fulfilled then it is too difficult to equate the value.

The club has a modern hosted phone system which allows staff to take phones home, plug them in and be operational on the clubs system within minutes. 

 

Even if staff are working from home they could be making these calls

All this makes the club look very unprofessional.

That's your right to do, but it isn't a course of action I would have taken.

The club can apply to have a Section 75 revoked and the money returned to them. It all depends on the Ts & Cs you agreed to at the time of purchase.

I wouldn't spend your refund yet

If history tells us something, the money will stay in his bank but the ability to buy tickets in future may be harder.

Just been to megastore. They confirmed my points were on last season’s ST, & I had the credit value of £120 to spend on stuff. 
Pretty straightforward & valid until May 2021. 
They also said that an announcement about new home kit was imminent.

This page on the UK GOV website makes interesting reading about 'Frustrated Contracts'       https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/cma-to-investigate-concerns-about-cancellation-policies-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-pandemic/the-coronavirus-covid-19-pandemic-consumer-contracts-cancellation-and-refunds.

 

This is one section of it and the last line is quite pertinent to this situation

 

Contracts that cannot go ahead due to lockdown laws

In some circumstances, due to lockdown laws, a contract cannot go ahead as agreed or at all, and is therefore ‘frustrated’. A contract will be frustrated as a matter of law if, due to no fault of the parties, something happens after the contract was entered into which means it can no longer be performed at all or performance would be radically different to what was agreed.

As a result, the contract comes to an end and, where consumers have paid money in advance for services or goods that they have yet to receive, they will generally be entitled to obtain a refund.

They will also not be required to make further payments.

In particular, for most consumer contracts, the CMA would expect a consumer to be offered a full refund where:

a business has cancelled a contract without providing any of the promised goods or services

no goods or services are provided by a business because this is prevented by the lockdown laws

a consumer is prevented from receiving any goods or services, because, for example, lockdown laws in the UK or abroad have made it illegal to receive or use the goods or services

In most cases, consumers will contact a business to ask for their money back, but there is no requirement for consumers formally to communicate with a business before becoming entitled to a refund.

Examples of legal restrictions in lockdown laws include:

restrictions imposed under the original lockdown laws in the early stages of the pandemic

restrictions imposed by local lockdown laws

specific restrictions imposed by local authorities under their legal lockdown powers

mandatory self-isolation following a direction from a public health officer

mandatory self-isolation when returning to the UK from certain countries which may affect the consumer’s ability to use a service during the self-isolation period (provided that the requirement to self-isolate was imposed after the consumer had entered into the relevant contract and was not reasonably anticipated by the consumer)

If laws in another country prevent a business from providing a service under a contract with a UK consumer or prevent that consumer from receiving the service, then in most cases consumers will also be entitled to a refund.

Businesses should not require consumers to take unreasonable or unnecessary steps in order to obtain refunds. A business imposing such barriers may breach consumer protection law by doing so.

The staff that have returned to work, only for 3 or 4 shifts per week, have been processing that type of refund.  I was told last week that the points would be valid until May 2021.  I was also told that they hadn't started processing the cash refunds.  We're 43 days into the 60 day settlement period, somebody is going to have to get their finger out if they intend to hit 60 days from the end of August.
