yes but what if those already have 13+ plus is the same number as last year?  Which if everyone in the 13 plus sale bought for every game then they would be on 14 out of the 15 played.

So saying lets reduced the credits required may not work.

There can't be the same amount can there? What with the fan update culling a certain number?

Off course there can, there will those that got to 13 in the 15 games too.  But considering we don't have any firm numbers on the fan update from the club who knows what potential reduction of number it could be.

I just cannot see it dropping 5 credits.

As 'unfair' as it is, the games won't have any supporters in so I don't see how they can retain the credits. If someone bough Palace, Burnley, Villa & 1 other game this season you think they should go into the 4+ ballot for next season when only one of those games was actually played? Nah.

That's just my thought though and I doubt it'll even be what happens.

But those people have done the "hard work" and got those tickets and presumably would have gone to the games, it's not their fault they might now not get to go. If those are taken off them then they're back down on 1 with people who either hadn't managed to get any more, hadn't bothered trying or weren't going to and were happy with just the 1 credit.

I'm on 19 (or 15!) so it possibly doesn't really affect me but if I was on a lower number and it meant I'd be dropped to a lower bulk sale level when I'd worked my arse off to get tickets and then got fucked over by a virus outside my control I'd be devastated. If I was on 4 that I'd attended, like you say above as an example, I'd honestly be happy for those with 4 but who had only been able to attend 1 to still count as having 4 as I'd know they'd put the work in to get those tickets.

Like you say though, whatever they do will upset half of us! Your point of view all depends on how lucky you were in the bulk/late sales I imagine!

This might be slightly off topic, but what will happen with the annual membership fee? Mine is due on May 20th for next season which automatically renews. With this season suspended and not over yet, will they still take the membership fee for next season in May?

I doubt it, at this rate we won’t know what next season will look like. They’ll have to postpone until this campaign comes to an end

Interesting idea on the latest TAW podcast about if clubs have already spent the ticket money they'd have to refund, suggesting those with the tickets are automatically given a ticket for the corresponding game next season (and if Villa were relegated then a promoted team instead). No doubt that wouldn't go down well with people without tickets though!

I quite like that idea, but thats to suit my own interests really, as I imsgine with this ballot process thats in for next season it will be more difficult to get tickets.

The thing with the B&Q queue, much like our own, is that it's inflated with people that cant buy what they want once they get in. Majority of those will be queueing for paint, but you cant buy any.

Had expensive Hospo tickets to the Villa game that I was planning an entire UK trip around (I live in the US). Obviously never happened. Waiting to hear from the cub now as to what I can do. Do you guys think they will give a refund or credit? If it;s credit that means I'd have to plan an entire trip all over again.

I don't think it will be one or the other because that would be grossly unfair, especially if you've paid for hospo. I'd imagine they'd give you the choice if they were going to go down that path.

Personally I think they'll just refund all games that don't happen with a crowd.

I had a hospo ticket for Burnley. When the time changed due to tv screening they gave me a refund so I imagine the same in your situation.

I've got hospitality for Villa to. First time got one in ground in boot room.   Dont ever envisage it will be played with crowd, closed doors no doubt.  I'm just keeping my head down and hoping that they will say you can have a similar game next season as goodwill gesture.

probably a bit more difficult considering the dates and times could be vastly different for the games next year, for example Villa at 4:30 Sunday could be a 8 on a Wednesday next year, in theory in straight forward enough if you allow for the club to refund and resell tickets that can't be used

Yeah, similar to what I posted above that TAW were discussing on a recent pod. Could definitely work for clubs that have spent the money already, although they'd have to allow for refunds where needed due to people not being able to make the corresonding date next season.

Thinking about it, the difference is Wimbledon’s refunds are covered by their insurance policy so they are refunding everyone. They are then offering the same tickets for the event next year and if you don’t want them then I guess they go back into the ballot

What have you seen? The only announcement I've seen is in the ST renewals update, which says:

Quote
In the event that the remaining 2019-20 home games cannot be played in front of supporters, we will provide either a refund for the equivalent value of the remaining home games to all season ticket holders and hospitality members, or the pro-rata value of the individual affected home matches as credit against their 2020-21 season ticket.

This rebate or refund will also be applicable to all official Members, general admission supporters and matchday hospitality ticket holders who have purchased for the affected games in the 2019-20 season. These supporters will be contacted individually via email to provide further information on the refund process.

I took that to mean we'll get a full refund, although God knows what they'll do about credits.

Reading it again I guess it could mean you have the choice of keeping a corresponding ticket for next season as well.

I think they mean you can keep the money for the games you have paid for this season on your account which can be used against any future tickets you buy. A bit like a credit note?

Don't know what they will do about credits for the games though.

Yes, that would make more sense, some other clubs do that anyway when you cancel a ticket.

I don't mind those options.  Think I prefer the credit note option over cash back but not everyone will be in the same position as me so if they give an option. It gives supporters better option esp if they need the money right now.

Think it will be interesting what the solution the club come up with over credits

If you bought in the 13+ and bulk sales then you could have anything between 13 and 19 depending on your circumstances and how you did in the free for alls

If you were on the ball and really luck and quick off the mark in non bulk sales and weren't in the 13+ sale you could have up to 15

If all credits are cancelled for future games then most anybody has is 15

Having said that, would seriously doubt that there'd be any physical attendence at the ground for maybe as bad as some time next year, but certainly late into this year. So the credits situation becomes even more complicated

There are member's who already have 13+ and member's who would have had 13+ (and paid money)but for circumstances beyond their control. I know I'm stating the obvious but these are the people who would have been in the guaranteed sale next season.
To me the only reasonable and fair course of action is that these 2 groups should be in the guaranteed sales once tickets do go on sale again.
It's rough on the people who may have made 13 this season though. Hopefully they might stagger the sales a bit more to help this group out.

Most likely waiting on that being official (not sure I've seen anywhere that says it is official. Just we all know it). Wouldn't surprise me if they do it on a game by game basis after each game has been played.
