Far too logical a response for some I feel, but it'll sink in eventually.This.
We won’t know for a long time what next season will look like, how many games we play, when it starts and if supporters can attend.
The club are used to getting the ST money injection in May/June every year. It won’t be there this year and the club and the support need to think about how we get through this process
My point is that your ST can be seen a luxury, The Government is making sure you or your family don't starveBloody hell mate, what a thing to say. Your thread was about being in a position to buy season tickets outright and when I put forward a reasonable explanation as to why this may not be possible, you come back with the above.
Still at least I'm getting paid.......
I personally think the days of mass season ticket sales are gone for a few years , people will choose to attend when they can afford it . This I suppose gives constant income during the season .At the moment, I think the vast majority of our support are more interested on the next mortgage payment and where that's coming from. I'm off work now until the week beginning 28th April and will address our season tickets when the time comes, but paying up front, is looking very unlikely now.
Thought there might have been another quote or something I was missing.Meaning we are in the same boat
For a lot of people, a season ticket is seen as a luxury at the best of times, but as ever we'll do our best to support our club. Next season will be no different, as and when it starts. Just different people sitting next to you, in certain cases, sadly. The government is making sure we don't stave, correct and if supporters can buy their S/T outright, our club will be more than appreciative, but this virus is here for a wee while yet and luxuries will be at a minimum for many, myself and family including.My point is that your ST can be seen a luxury, The Government is making sure you or your family don't starve
I certainly don't think we'll have anywhere near the number of season ticket holders next season as we did this. Just my personal opinion and I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but as has been said, difficult times are a head, not just for us individually but for our club also.I personally think the days of mass season ticket sales are gone for a few years , people will choose to attend when they can afford it . This I suppose gives constant income during the season .
Looking at the various threads regarding ST for next season and the financial shortfall the Club will undoubtedly face.
The European run will have helped in a big way but we as a Club have large overheads and I think we, as fans will be the usual suspects that will need to dig deep.
I think it would be a massive help if we could pay the Club Direct rather than, for instance, Credit Card.
Before anyone has a go at me, we as a family know how much a hardship it is at the moment, and that everyone has a family to look after first and foremost.
All I'm saying that those in our fanbase, if possible, should try and pay upfront.
If that is not possible, then it is not possible. I agree the players should have offered a 20% pay cut, but that is another debate, players come and go but we are forever.
Not wanting an argument about this, it is just my opinion.
we won’t play our hand first before the Tim’s due to the slaughtering we would get and sadly that’s a fact with us and themIt would show great solidarity if tavernier got the players together and said ok 20% pay cut for 3 months , that’s easily affordable to the players .
In tandem we the fans step up and buy our season tickets early so that the club have it up front . Let’s hope something can be ironed out .

I can pay up front but as I said on another thread, I will not renew until the players do their bit. By that I mean a wage reduction.I'm not asking for Credit facilities, I am asking ST who are in a position to pay cash upfront to do so.
I have never even given it a thought to ask for a refund, my attitude is that it is paid for and as such, I am not losing anything
Payment with a credit card is only a maximum of 3 days delay for full payment to the club less the transaction fee. (Rangers charge extra to cover fee).This season has been my 1st with a ST which I paid for via my credit card. I did not appreciate that payments to the Club are then staggered however, going forward I can & will be paying by debit card to ensure the Club has my money quicker.
One does appreciate the many differing financial positions & pressures that will be experienced by fellow Bears over the unique period we are living through.
You think anyone will ask for a refund or owed games??Tbh as things stand the club owe 46,500 ST holders money for games that haven’t been played so they may not be in such a rush to punt out next seasons ST
I think in the renewal promotion they’ll have to state that they intend to give fans the first couple of EL qualifiers for free in order to make up for the missed home games this season. I think that’s a fair compromise
If they intend to charge fully for EL qualifiers and don’t give the fans anything back then I foresee a fair number of angry ST holders and it would be justified tbh
I get where you are coming from, but if players don't take a pay cut ( which they should ), Will, you renew next season?I can pay up front but as I said on another thread, I will not renew until the players do their bit. By that I mean a wage reduction.
We are in this together.
Maybe I am getting mixed up with another sort of payment, Anyone know?Payment with a credit card is only a maximum of 3 days delay for full payment to the club less the transaction fee. (Rangers charge extra to cover fee).
Credit card companies have no right withhold payment in full.
