Listen mate you drop your money through the letterbox at Ewood . Or have you already done it ..because youre more than willing to pay for something that doesnt exist at the moment ..so no problem ..yes ? go do it .

Will you ?

I have never said that I would. I just know that some people will even amidst the uncertainty and the club is stupid for not taking them up on that. 

Receiving a season ticket with conditions, maybe a proportion of the season via ifollow subscriptions or worst case scenario, a deferred season ticket, for people willing to buy that, isnt the same as you sarcastically put "dropping your money through the letterbox at Ewood.'

Who wanted refunds? A few on here? I didn’t come across a single person in real life.

Wasn’t aware I was expecting people to sign up for a full season, as my previous posts today have been about ‘when we are finally back in grounds’ ‘‘yesterday’s announcement adds to the uncertainty, so we ain’t selling many if they go on sale on Monday’, ‘when they do go on sale’

You pissed?

Obviously they exist, there’s posts on this very thread. But if you think there’s also widespread outrage in the fanbase over ifollow, fair enough. But not the impression I got.

Pissed ? cheers for that wish i was !

But YOU did say real  life  ..which infers everything on this forum here is ..isnt real life ...cmon Matty ..better than that ...i think !. The outrage wasnt IFollow ..it was the fact there was no refunds to those that wanted it .

This forum isn’t representative, we all know that, and that’s said as someone who is a staunch defender of brfcs.

As I said, if you think we have an outraged fanbase over the refunds, fair enough. I jus didn’t see it, actually expected more outrage than there was.

Think you're right, certainly everybody I spoke to wasn't interested in a refund.

The problem was the fact that no option was available to those that wanted it ..yet people want us to sign upto  a season that doesnt even exist .

Wasn't aware we were being asked to sign up for anything yet. The last I heard was in the Telegraph a couple of days ago when no decision had been made. 

All I know is I will be signing up when it is made, this is my club and its worth more than a few quid in my back pocket., especially in the current climate.

If the club is struggling for cash flow and there are people like yourself willing to give their money knowing the situation is how it is then they are idiots for not getting them on the market as soon as was possible.

Exactly ..nothing to sign upto ..but people clamouring for something that doesnt exist ..wanting it now now now ..when the current climate doesnt accomodate that ..

That's one way of looking at it.

Lets say the EFL allow 25% of Ewood capacity, that's about 7,800.  There's no way we'll sell that many ST's so they might as well put them on sale.

I agree. There is the added aspect which other clubs have whereby demand wont exceed supply.

For when ? This area just went into a partial lockdown 48 hours ago ..

This so called season when i or you can walk on ..? Enter Ewood and take a seat ? 

Ah I see. Well, that's the crux. There will have to be a stipulation that the club takes no responsibility for games that can't be watched live due to future lockdowns etc. This is pretty much what Waggott imposed retrospectively when he refused refunds on last years missed matches. 

I'm sure all clubs will cover themselves legally and state ST's are bought with the understanding that all matches can be watched either on ifollow or live at the ground, but not always both. For that reason ST's may be a cheaper this season.

And rightly so. Common sense from the club. Why put something on sale that may or may not exist ..dont understand people clamouring to buy one without knowing the situation !

I can totally understand why you say that as some of the group I go with are saying the same points you have.

Rovers should be putting tickets out now imo.

We know which league we are playing.

We know the league start and end date.

We know crowds won’t come back before October.

Rovers should offer season tickets at last years prices NOW with a free Home shirt knowing fans will have to watch a few games on ifollow before some element of normality resumes and all this instead of the Rovers cash back system.

Every ST holder will then benefit one way or the other.

I agree with that price offer that Rovers should offer but any existing season ticket holder(last season) should be offered a free home shirt and discount on the season ticket price of 10%

Obviously many people may not be in a position or of a desire to pay money for a season ticket at the moment. But some wil be happy to pay, whether it is out of habit (something more likely to be lost the longer the gap is) or out of loyalty. If there is SOME demand, I cant comprehend the logic of "yes but lots of people wont buy one." Surely it makes sense to at least take advantage of that demand that is there and claw in whatever the club can at supposedly such a difficult time. Even if it is say 1k people at 300 quid a pop, its 300k into the club coffers.

It would also require a bit of thinking outside the box in terms of ticketing. The concept of designated seats would have to be temporarily abandoned. Presumably fans wishing to go together (ie family) could apply together, and it could be left flexible to allow further people to join should they choose to before it starts. There could be terms thought out in terms of contingencies. If say no games are attendable next season, worst case scenario, then the season ticket is deferred until the season after. Cash flow is still improved. If as I hope is more likely that only a few games cannot be attended, offer ifollow links. We have the added advantage logistically of not having demand exceeding supply so its more manageable.

Other teams have managed to do it and we cant complain about cash flow when we are choosing not to take up a very obvious way to improve it. It requires proactivity which is why we havent done it. 

Yes Some people will renew/pay for season ticket for a potential next season ST but we need to know what we are paying if terms of seating arrangements with seating with family or friends or where you will be seating as some people will want the same seat they have had for years, facilities open like catering, club shop, toilets and Kids facilities. if we aren't allowed in ground until after Christmas what will the club do to allow fans to watch games. We need to know the plan for the entire season for different scenarios going forward 

Plus with the local area in restrictions in terms of socialising and going outside the area with the increase Covid-19 cases is it really worth putting them online. How could a group of people who go together in 1 car go to the games if they don't live in same households?

Also how will Stadiums be made Covid-19 safe? Until we know how this will be done? is it feasible to offer Season tickets at this stage

I know other teams have offer season tickets to fans but some clubs have put them on hold. Clubs where they have sold 70 or 80% of stadium capacity how are they decide who go in and doesn't if they only allowed 33% of the stadium full?

Everton have sold 30,000 season tickets for a 39,000 capacity ground. 

We have sold 0 season tickets for a 31,000 capacity ground.

Everton will have millions in the bank from that. We have nothing.

Who do we reckon knows best about running a football club? Everton or Venkys and Waggott.

The club can put tickets on sale whenever it likes. But next news is Waggott will be moaning about FFP, lack of income and rich clubs having more money than us.

Well speaking for myself i have my money ready to spend and would do so if the club was prepared to accept it. I won't be alone.

Can't have it both ways. Can't be bothered with the basics and the hassle of devising a scheme e.g. £300 for the first 20 home matches whenever they may be. Don't then moan about not having any money.

The club at a time when they need cash flow should be doing all it can. But as ever, its not.

People like yourself would seemingly take up the offer of a season ticket despite the uncertainty. I personally dont think I would but whether its 200, 500, 1k, 2k that took them up on their offer, its crucial cash flow for the club. It requires a bit of proactivity present at other clubs and sadly lacking in ours 

All of the hygeine and Coronavirus issues can be dealt with as and when and obviously the situation is a fluid one.

If they said now, season tickets for sale. Apply with any other people you would like to attend with. No guaranteed seats obviously. You get ifollow links until the point when you can attend, and if you are unable to attend all season your season ticket for the year after is free. So bit of a gamble in terms of not knowing what youll get but thats been agreed beforehand. Im guessing you would instantly get a season ticket sorted?

We are in a favourable position (in this instance) whereby we arent in danger of having too much demand anyway.

I suspect Waggott and his management team are still burnt out from having to make a decision on the cardboard cutouts. Give them a chance for some r&r for gods sake. They’ve also got to come up with sound bites about why defenders didn’t come and why the must fabled European scouting network is as much use as a chocolate fire guard. Then there’s the pre season vs barrow to arrange.

Thinking outside the box with season tickets when they need cash flow, various Covid scenarios. Come on please be realistic.

I would possible buy one but I would need to know the circumstances and what is actually being offered and what would be offer if we didn't see bulk of the season in the stadium. 

I would want to know the situation with the stadium being Covid safe and what facilities will be open and not. 

No guarantee seats? I would want to be seating in roughly the same area as my original Season ticket seats and

Would you buy under the scenario that I mentioned?

I dont see how you can guarantee seats at the moment and certainly it wont be a priority.

I said possible in the 1st reply but want to know much more details and what measures will be able to make the stadium Covid 19 safe. 

It will be priority to some fans including some of the people I go with and possible me depending where I am sitting.
