It's a workable option for some no doubt. For those of us struggling financially it's not really viable to pay a second time especially as there is no guarantee we can use the ticket in full next season either. Not to mention other changes in personal circumstances that may mean a 21-22 season ticket isn't feasible when we get to it, I can only speak for myself of course but I don't want to commit to a season ticket for the following season this far in advance when so much can change (and we still havent had the fun of Brexit further damaging the economy and jobs yet, of course).The simplest way to do it is what I said a few days ago.
Defer all 2020/2021 STs to 2021/2022. If the Club increases the price for next season then all you have to do is pay the extra on top.
Then, for season 2021/2022, the current ST holders are given the right to purchase their seat for any game/s we can attend this season. Whether it's October 2020 or February 2021. We buy online at set prices for each stand we can have access to. West & East - £20/£15/£10. North £25/£18/£10. South £35. (I'm guessing at admittance prices..... just examples).
This way, it protects your ST money. The Club doesn't have to refund in full or arrange iFollow codes. The Club receives slightly more per game than they would've if it was just ST prices. It simplifies it all.
You then have the opportunity to buy any iFollow match passes that you wish to pay for at £10 per match. Saves the Club having to issue codes and replying to emails saying they don't work etc etc etc.
The idea that if you want a full refund you lose your seat for 2021/2022 AND go to the bottom of the queue for STs!! Is a joke. Let's hope that option isn't included.......
I dont see why a pro rata refund for the games we cant attend is such a big ask tbh, I'm sure many would donate or accept ifollow passes at what is a higher rate than the £10 they seem to normally charge (although now this has news has broken plenty will have lost the goodwill they may have previously had towards the club, certainly I have). Maybe it's part to do with that shambles of a ticketing system.
