Season Ticket Renewal Discount Ends Today.
Wednesday, 2nd Sep 2020 08:55
The deadline for Saints fans to renew their Season Ticket for the 2020/21 campaign ends today (Wednesday), if you want to keep your existing seat and get the renewal discount then you need to act quickly,
Saints supporters have until 4pm on Wednesday afternoon to renew their season tickets and be guaranteed their existing seat as well as get a substantial discount on the normal price.
I have said this all summer, but this is a time for Supporters of any football club to support the team they love, not turn their backs at a time when like any other business due to this awful pandemic, it needs cash flow and that comes from the fans backing the club financially.
Those that renew won't lose out whilst fans are not allowed back into the games, they will receive a refund of the price for the game promptly.
Those who are vulnerable can also opt out of games and receive a refund when supporters return to the stadium with a reduced capacity.
Speaking to some people I have found that some fans are in effect cutting off their noses to spite their faces, they are not renewing because they say they won't be able to get in, despite the fact that the club have made the Price Promise to make "a direct refund for any fixture played behind closed doors or where a Season Ticket holder cannot attend due to reduced capacity. "
Firstly with only season ticket holders likely to get into grounds when fans are allowed to return with a reduced capacity, they will be losing out on the chance to see any games at all.
Secondly when they full crowds are allowed back, if they want to see a game they will be paying full price for the ticket.
Some are saying they will wait till Xmas and then buy a half season ticket, but the truth is that will be far dearer than renewing now and getting refunds.
Season ticket money is a vital form of income for football clubs under normal circumstances, even more so in this horrible time, of course there will be those who for one reason or another financially cannot renew their ticket even though they want to do so, but from my experience of talking to supporters who say they are not renewing it is a small proportion.
Existing Season Ticket holders can renew their Season Ticket for the new campaign from just £399 by calling 02381 780780 between 10am-4pm either today or tomorrow.
Alternatively, you can login to your online account, click on ‘Season Ticket renewals’ and your seat will be ready and waiting for purchase.
The club have once again frozen Season Ticket renewal prices and introduced The Saints Promise – a series of commitments designed to protect Season Ticket holders, including a direct refund for any fixture played behind closed doors or where a Season Ticket holder cannot attend due to reduced capacity.
For more information, visit the dedicated Season Tickets page, or check out the FAQs page.
You can find out the latest on the plans for returning to St Mary's below, including plans for Season Ticket holders who renew but are clinically vulnerable and unable to return straight away, and how people within social bubbles will be accommodated should there be reduced capacity matches. Further information will be released on this over the upcoming weeks.
It is highly likely there will be capacity restrictions when fans are first allowed back to stadium. The club have been working on a system which provides fair and equitable access, albeit weighted towards our most regular attendees, and will seek to give every Season Ticket Holder who wishes to attend a chance to do so within the first few games following supporters being allowed back into stadiums.
We are not in a position to confirm the extent to which capacity might be limited but will share this information with supporters as soon as we have it.
People at high risk (clinically vulnerable)
Although the government guidance for people at high risk has changed and they are no longer being advised to shield, the club do understand that some fans will not be comfortable returning to matches just yet, even with all the mitigating measures in place. In this circumstance, there will be an opportunity to opt out of any selection processes for returning to initial matches with reduced capacities. For the latest government guidance please click here.
The Club are working to ensure that supporters can select their social bubbles in groups of up to six people from two households, and will need your help to understand more about your groups. In preparation for this, please ensure your friends and family list is up to date on your ticketing account.
Further information on how social bubbles are to be managed will be released in due course.

Here we are again, back in the (now) much-maligned EFL Trophy and a home tie against West Ham United U21s, and I think probably our last chance to stay in the competition? Robbie’s most recent rallying cry has been to “buy, buy, buy” when it comes to iFollow streams, and with the likelihood of supporters getting to matches receding, making streaming probably our only viable revenue stream, who can blame him. As an exile, I was never expecting I’d have many opportunities to see the U’s in the flesh this season, so he’s rather preaching to the converted as far as I’m concerned, but I do like the loyalty scheme he’s put together.
Away days by Andyconky
Many pounds have been spent and many train tracks have been travelled but who doesn't love an away day. Doesn't matter if its Chester or Chelsea or Lincoln or Liverpool, it's all good fun with a sense of adventure of what may happen.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?
