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
Far too logical a response for some I feel, but it'll sink in eventually.

With zero idea of when this season will even be finished I don’t think the club is even going to possibly be able to think about season tickets for next season anytime soon.

I think Tav should get a few old heads together, McGregor, Davis esp, and come up with a way to shorten our overheads. With the fans seeing this I'd bet more than most would be willing to dig deeper in these hard times

Bloody 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.......
My point is that your ST can be seen a luxury, The Government is making sure you or your family don't starve

This is going to be a difficult decision for many especially as household income will be put under immense pressure in the coming months,
I can honestly see a reduction in season ticket numbers in the upcoming season whenever it starts.
My own position is at the moment, I have seen the value of my pension fund go down and will need to monitor and prioritise where my money goes in the short to medium term until I see where the full affects of this coronavirus is know both health wise and financially.
That said I was due to go on holiday on 17th April and hope the government extends the current 30 days travel advice which ends on 16th April, this will give me a full refund which would go towards season tickets.

I’ll pay cash upfront as soon as they ask for it, I’m in a fortunate position currently but people must put their family first. For the first time I can remember I don’t really care about football. But the club is my family and I’ll do what I am able.

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.
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 .

Meaning we are in the same boat
Thought there might have been another quote or something I was missing.
Be interesting to see what happens with the current season in limbo as it stands.

The club looks to be in a fortunate position with the incoming investment also, a lot of other teams will be looking at that in envy but I imagine that's intention was not to cover anything in the immediate short term.

Until any confirmation, anyone that can be doing anything to help the club should be.

The club should introduce a new 2 payment option, to go along with the existing 4 and 10 payment options.

My season ticket this year was over £700 so to pay that in a one off payment for me might just be stretching it a bit. I could however pay half up front and the other half the following month.

The one positive from the clubs perspective (not my own!), is that it looks like nobody is going on holiday this year and therefore have one less expenditure to worry about which may help season ticket numbers.

Everyone is in a different situation though and a lot of folk (self employed for instance) aren't getting the income they usually do.

It's a tricky situation with all the uncertainty over absolutely everything.

As things stand theres no chance i can renew as i'm self employed. Only hope for me is the club come up with some ideas to help us out, maybe extended payments deadlines or different payment options .

The club technically owe the season tickets holders money. Hopefully we hear from the board soon. The fans will be asked to step up again pretty soon I think.

These are not normal times and clubs everywhere will be in a similar situation. I wonder if players will be asked to renegotiate contracts. Whether that means reducing the weekly amount but lengthening the contract or such like, to reduce running costs. The players, unions and agents will have to be very careful how they go here because players could easily become pariahs if they are seen to be demanding their grotesque salaries when everyone around them is struggling.

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.

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.

Anyway, stay safe out there and hopefully we'll get back to some normality soon.

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.

paying for a product which looks like at least 6 to 8 months at very least away from starting if indeed it does
I’m not too sure how the club are going to punt this one considering folk will already have same situation with booked holidays

No idea at this stage if I will have my 2 ST next season?

My business could be in ruins by the time we manage to control this shite.

Until I know about how secure my job is there is no way I could pay up front and to be honest if I was made redundant I’m not sure I could justify renewing at all.

It 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 .
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 them

I'm makin sure I get mine coz I like sittin wi the folk around me and not some wahoos and loud arseholes that gie our players unsavoury pelters.

Yeah, we can moan and most of us do but slaying into our players is not the right way of goin about it.

I am certain that the bears & bearettes beside me will be there 20/21.

Full payment by credit card will give the club the money within 3 days less the transaction fee retailers pay..

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
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.

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

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.
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.

Not a chance

I get where you are coming from, but if players don't take a pay cut ( which they should ), Will, you renew next season?
