    Season Tickets 2020-21

    Looks increasingly that we may have to sell one of our better players just to make up for lack of income through the door. All will depend on where things are in January but given that Travis and Dack are out of action, that leaves only Armstrong as someone who could be sold for a sizeable fee. Unless Dolan continues with his Messi like form in which case it’s mega bucks for him too!

    The club need to rethink the whole situation and offer iFollow as an option to all those purchasing season passes. There is no way I am attending this season but as it stands, if I buy a season ticket I’m not guaranteed to see all home games.

    As owners and directors of the club Venkys have a corporate duty to ensure it continues as a going concern and remains solvent. Regardless of the COVID situation and the number of fans buying tickets this is their sole responsibility. if they are not able to guarantee that then we know what the alternative is.

    I’m all for a season ticket that gives you the option of attending or watching on iFollow with or without a cash adjustment. I just don’t want to miss watching games either in person or virtually. This a difficult situation for all and one that could be disastrous for many clubs not just Rovers. I’m sure most fans are happy to support the club in these times but equally many cannot afford to spend their money on an uncertain and devalued product. The club don’t appear to have grasped this.

    It’s not the club’s fault that the number of cases is spiking. When would have been a good time to put season tickets on sale? They were led to believe that limited numbers of fans would be allowed in stadiums so planned accordingly. However, where the club have fallen down is: Increasing prices substantially when the match day experience is being significantly reduced Failing to understand that a good proportion of fans will NOT attend where there is a risk to their health and not offering them some assurance/alternative. Failing to assure those fans who choose not to renew that they won’t lose their usual seat (I hope this is not a deliberate ploy by the club) Failing to offer an iFollow alternative to those unable to attend home games (my understanding this is not available if fans attend) Personally, after 55 years I will not be attending any time soon due to a recent health issue which leaves me in a quandary. Do I renew to secure my seat and watch the few games that may be available on iFollow or do I write this season off and take a chance that my seat will still be available and catch as many games as I can on iFollow? I wish the club had made it easier for fans like me to make that decision!

    The Nottingham Forest season ticket model seems to address the issue of not being able to attend by offering iFollow as an option https://www.nottinghamforest.co.uk/news/2020/september/information-for-nottingham-forest-2020-21-season-card-holders/

    As a long standing season ticket holder and fan I am desperate to get back to Ewood to watch games albeit in a more controlled environment which I fully accept and understand is outside the club’s control. I also understand that the club needs to try and get as many season ticket holders to renew at a price that is commercially sensible given that there will be less fans in the stadium. However, many fans such as myself are still not prepared to risk attending for health reasons and we seem to have been ignored or forgotten. At a guess I would say the number of “vulnerable” fans is 25% or more. What is the club offering those fans, many who will have been attending regularly for 50 years or more? Is this the spirit of “We are Together”? As it stands, by not renewing our ST it seems we will lose our seats which is hardly fair in the current situation. We also won’t be able to watch on iFollow those games that are played behind closed doors (unless there is a Match Pass option). I’m all for getting as many fans back to Ewood but please Rovers consider those for whom it is not yet safe enough to come back because if you don’t those fans may be lost forever.

    Not forgetting his threat at set pieces. Always capable of nodding one in from corners

    Bournemouth away

    Keeps asking me for an activation code before I can pay. I’ve tried through the website and app without success. I consider myself to be quite techy but this has me baffled

    Having some trouble purchasing this game on iFollow. I don’t have a voucher code that is being asked for. Any ideas? Should I have been sent something by email?

    I get the point about clubs getting commitment from the fans but it would be a PR and financial disaster if, having spent the money, the clubs couldn’t deliver the product. I note that some clubs have actually suspended season ticket sales after putting them on sale before the end of the normal season.

    The club have explained why season tickets are not being sold yet, which seems fair enough to me. I expect a further update from the authorities and club very soon but given the current Covid situation in Blackburn it's unlikely to be a green light. Personally I would like to stay in the same area as my current seat as to me its a social experience as well as football. Having said that I would be OK to move elewhere temporarily (onto the Riverside roof if it meant I could watch football safely😉). I dont get this with clubs selling out their season tickets as it's clear that all won't be able to get in. Better wait and then plan accordingly.

    Salary Caps

    Ah, the good old PFA! The one that pays its Chairman a huge salary. Maybe he can share that out to keep clubs afloat. Professional footballers, like many of the fans will soon be thankful that they have a salary at all.

    Salary Caps

    Yes it would be ideal if the vast riches of the Premier League were used to prop up the lower leagues but then Isn’t this precisely why the Premier League broke away from the Football League, so they could have the riches for themselves and the TV companies? This also begs the question, what will the richer League 1 and 2 clubs do with their excess cash?
