I have just discovered a complete no nothing, brainless dimwit has been using my GPG account to make ridiculous accusations about the clubs season ticketing policy. This situation has now been rectified and my apologies for his wasting of everyone's time.
Move along, nothing to see here.
Ha ha - well played!

Reminds me of a thread on a Millwall forum. Where a poster wanted to buy a ticket for an all ticket league game but couldn't get his usual seat. He didn't realise that the reason for that was because his season ticket was being used by himself for that match already.

So if your kids turn 18 before we are allowed back in the ground you don’t need to pay the extra for an adult season ticket? Club have missed a trick there. Keith Dickens would’ve charged the extra.

Surely it's 66 now? It's your age when the season starts which is used by the club? I turned 60 during a season which I paid full price for, the age for seniors was raised for the following season but when I renewed online I was only able to buy a senior ticket despite being only 61 then. Wasn't going to argue the toss.

May I just add that I'm also fuming! When I froze my ST we had a BMW I expected to see at Lionel Road and now we just have a M left. Unsurprisingly the M doesn't seem to work properly without the B and W, so, where do I get my refund!? 😡

Also did every adult get the options of getting screwed with there season ticket. I broke up with my ex and can't meet people during lockdown so this could be beneficial.

Is that a proposition for TorbayBee?

I am a season ticket holder who froze his season ticket this past year to support the club.
I turned 65 in October 2020 .

I turned 65 in October 2020 . However, in my case I understood that as I would not be 66 until October 2021 - like you, I suspect - I would not qualify for the senior pricing as I wpould not be 66 at the start of the season. Having the price held came as no surprise to me... I also felt that as I'd had the equivalent of nearly a full season of iFollow free, I'd come out well ahead.

What I'm wondering is whether my son's season ticket will be at the same price. He turned 19 during this current season so still qualified for the lower cost. Will his price be held or will he have to go to a full adult price? I suspect the latter, but I'm happy with that.

I don't want to depress poor old Torbay any further, but isn't the retirement age now 66 and not 65? Therefore he is whole year out and not entitled for another 12 months.
There’s more than 1 in Torbay’s boat! I had a similar thought following the big birthday last month, though too knackered to do anything about it. I don’t understand Retirement Age anymore either, other than I know I don’t get the OAP until 67 in 2023.

Your second assertion is correct.By “freezing” your season ticket, it, and the monies you paid for it will pay for your season ticket for the forthcoming 21/22 season.
Unless you attended one of the two games fans were let in for this season, you would then have to pay for 1 game as I do.

I AM a location
I am a season ticket holder who froze his season ticket this past year to support the club.
I turned 65 in October 2020 and naturally assumed my rolled over season ticket for the 21/22 season would be at the senior price. I phoned the club today and was told that this was not the case, I will have to pay the full price for the new season as my season ticket was 'rolled over'.
This is utter nonsense - in fact I am being punished for freezing my season ticket last year.
The explanation was that the club is rolling over the reduced prices for those turning 18 so they benefit so its only fair that seniors like me take the hit. They actually said this is being done to make things fair - to who?. Not the old gits like me but to the youngsters. I assume someone somewhere has decided that the important thing is the future lifetime vale of the supporters and youngsters will presumably bring in more that old supporters like me over the long term. So sod the long term fans.
It is an incredibly poor decision and one that has left me felling gutted and totally unappreciated by the club I have followed since i was 5. All these public statements about 'inclusion' presumably do not include me.
I have spoken to the Ticket/Venue Manager ( a guy called J. Graham ) who said if I write to him he will pass my grievance on. That will go nowhere I know.
Can anyone advise how I can take this up with the person/people who decided this policy. Can I call or write to John Varney direct?
Any help really appreciated on challenging what is a very poor decison affecting the people who supported the club when we were buying players with money from buckets.

Is noone thinking of J. Graham in this?

He'ss going to look a right nob passing on this grievance to his boss

I quote enjoyed the image conjured up of having to write to a J. Graham to pass on a grievance. All seemed very British.

You forget it was a lot of OAP’s that got together to stop the QPR take over , went out with the buckets and a few long walks
Why would I forget? It's typical GPG, whether a convicted racist or or a spelling error, smash them into the ground with no respite.

At that rate his frozen season ticket will have to be placed in a cryogenic state.

I'm the same. I took the view I paid for last season so I wasn't a concession then and shouldn't get a rebate. In any case, given the lack of income this season, I don't be grudge the Club that little extra bit of cash. They did give us ifollow for free after all.
This is how I see it too. I decided I wanted to have a club to support at the end of these difficult times.

I am a season ticket holder who froze his season ticket this past year to support the club. I turn 65 in January 2034. Given the current pandemic situation, who’s best to approach in regards to my ticket? Does Winnie still work at the club, and is the best number to get her on still 0800 12 11 08?

You're not a true fan. I suspect a Fulham or Rara infiltrater. Everyone knows the number was 0898-12-11-08. 0800 indeed. Do you think we are stupid? Go back to your Victoria Sponge Rupert

The guy in charge of the 2030’s arrangements is the same guy who is dishing out the free sand from the Braemar forecourt.

Sorry but I obviously have not explained this very well.
My beef is not about this season (20/21). I happily froze my season ticket, took i follow and am happy. I am not looking for a refund.
My issue lies with season tickets for NEXT season 21/22 which are being renewed now.
During the past year I turned 65 entitling me at any normal times to pay the senior season ticket price for the coming season. Thus my ticket should cost £399 rather than the full price ticket of £509.
However this will not be the case. The club says its rolling over my ticket as an adult so I cannot pay the senior rate. I have to pay the full amount. This is a grossly unfair policy as it punishes me for my loyalty and support through the pandemic season 20/21
This issue can't affect more than a handful of presumably very loyal long standing and ageing supporters who should now be eligible for a concession. Surely our understanding club will be reasonable about this.

Not sure 0800 has already been freephone. Think it was basically caller-beware until they tidied up numbers into 0800, 0898 etc.

Think this thread should be closed to avoid the poster being picked on for what is clearly just a mistake
Poor guy made an honest mistake interpreting something but some of the other comments are uncalled for.

I thought it was mainly good natured in all honesty. Couple of people got pissed off with the perceived greed on show but it didn’t look like it got out of hand and was swiftly resolved . Proofs in the pudding if grandad elect Torbay bee comes back !

Of course. Not Grandad elect, already there and as you may have seen over the years I have enjoyed more than one enjoyable verbal arm wrestle on here (Voice I am looking to you on this) . All good, all GPG.

Christ that number, I must have rattled up about a million quid from my work phone listening to that damn thing. My dad didn't hang up properly once and got a horrid bill from BT, to be fair they wiped it out as an obvious error.
