I thought the would be worth its own thread away from the refund / rebate one.

As of yet no indication of single season prices or even if there will be single season tickets on offer, but here's the pricing information we've seen so far.

(Try as I might I an't format this into a table so apologies for the formatting)

Category - 2 Season Price - 3 Season price
Tulip Club - £10,370 - £16,265
Private Box - £5,665 - £8,870
100 Club - £4,715 - £7,395
Fez Club - £1,695 - £2,660
Platinum Plus - £1,775 - £2,785
Platinum - £1,615 - £2,535
Gold - £1,100 - £1,725

Red & Black/ Stadium Pass works out at £235 per season for the two season pass. Cheaper than the £300 for last season. That seems super reasonable to me.

Yet again car parking is not announced. When I renewed for this season I asked but the position was not resolved until near end of August. At this time I was told my car Park will not be open at all and only much more expensive options were available. The discounts look attractive but parking is an integral part about which we have no idea.
As much as I support the team, for more than two decades, I am not impressed with management. And organisation in general.

Much of the parking is in school playgrounds and the like. It is highly unlikely that there has been time for those providers to think about these contracts during recent months. Managing school time, planning for the autumn term and dealing with oddities like virtual GCSE and A-Level results had to take priority.

However, you may be sure that the schools want the business if it is viable; facilities rental is a very important part of school's financial well-being. They'll not have lost interest, merely had greater urgencies.

I donít get the impression that season parking is the best organised of the clubís services.

Having accepted a £60 credit against my 2020-21 parking season ticket I sincerely hope they offer me one!

For me, the 'best buy' is the 3-yr deal. There is no way that I'll be renewing my ST at all though until the virus situation and its impact on Sarries becomes much clearer. With the daily infection rate increasing over the last 3 weeks and the death rate flat-lining, it looks like the situation is deteriorating. I suspect it'll be at least October before I make a decision.

Re: Season Ticket prices 2020/21 and beyond

think I'm going for the 3 year deal too; you can spread it over 10 monthly payemnts too so I understand (small extra cost)

the added advantage is that after the 3rd year I will qualify for the senior citizen discount

You may be right for this seasonís renewal but parking has never been resolved until late August at the earliest and months after my renewals of ST. Last summer it was very late to be told the school was not going to reopen parking so they werenít that interested in the income. All in all it does not encourage long term commitment to ST renewals,.

Weíre thinking about two years as weíre planning on moving to the north-east sometime in 2022 and a 600-mile round trip might be tricky.

I did wonder what happens if like both Mrs Jonny and myself you turn 65 during the seasons covered by your ST - presumably you get the discount applied and receive a partial refund once you become eligible..?

Re: Season Ticket prices 2020/21 and beyond
Mac L 07 August, 2020 16:54
If you can get a proportionate discount on turning 65 that's great. I'd go for that

Re: Season Ticket prices 2020/21 and beyond

Very annoying that having secured a discount the club took it away twice. Forcing the sideways move. It wasnít only the salary cap that got screwed.

Suzyspot 12 August, 2020 14:16
I agree phillfez Iím very hacked off to put it mildly. Hubby and I are not oBly still dealing from the ST hike 2 years ago but now they want us to pay £250 over the top of the championships highest priced ST!! I donít know how anyone can think these deals are good value. They have so far failed to answer any of my questions included about parking and are insisting on charging the earth for our continued loyalty. Which I find very difficult when with covid we donít know when we will be able to watch again or if they will actually go back up to the premiership for year 2. Iím sure they will but with the way management have treated the club and us fans who knows. Iím sorry but weíve been a long term supporter of the club but feel as though they are taking us for granted over these prices and leaving us forced to take the refund and give up our platinum seats. Weíll re-asses next year but pay for tickets as and when we can. Covid has hit us hard financially too Sarries, yours was of your own making!

Re: Season Ticket prices 2020/21 and beyond

Rest assured we will be in touch as soon as possible (and well before the start of the next season) to answer any questions you have and discuss all the membership options available.

We have extended the deadline on seat reservations by 1 month"

Spoke to them over the course of the end of last week + yesterday. Its a small team that's doing their absolute best to get through thousands of individual cases (including the showdown matches) with a personal touch, so is of course taking some time - particularly when people naturally want to either vent their frustration at what's been going on, ask questions about the upcoming championship season, or just talk rugby which they seem very willing and actually really keen to do. Think they're doing a great job in the circumstances and I think there are signs that some of our previously below-par service (not the fault of the individuals themselves) is turning a corner.

Latest email from the club:
"We have committed to call every seasonal member directly and we are having such positive conversations with so many of our supporters. However, we are behind our planned timeline to contact you all to action all your credit options and discuss your seasonal membership renewal options moving forwards.

Please rest assured we will be in touch with each and every one of you over the next 4 to 6 weeks so we must ask you to please remain patient Ė to be open and honest these calls are taking a lot longer than we had anticipated but it is proving to be time phenomenally well spent. Importantly no seat reservations will be released until you have received a call."

I wanted to move my seat and he helped with that and i'm all renewed for another 2 seasons. Just not sure when we will back after the announcement yesterday.

Re: Season Ticket prices 2020/21 and beyond

The latest regulatory restrictions on crowds at events seems to lay the groundwork for widespread collapse of professional sport of all kinds. In rugby, clubs will fail at all levels, and even the Premiership may end up short of its full complement of members. When, and I think it's when and not if, a Premiership club or two do go broke, will the league simply reduce in numbers? Will the Championship be shorn of its few viable clubs to make up the Premiership numbers? Will the egregious chairmen who so wanted Sarries to fail realise that they may yet regret that which they worked so hard to bring about?

It seems to me that the PRL faces a future in which their business model is unsustainable, in a market that cannot support twelve professional clubs, and where the sponsorship, TV rights etc are all markedly less valuable than they have been until now.

As the real trauma is not likely to break out until the end of this year, there will be problems with the implications of clubs that collapse when the season will actually have begun.

However, back to season tickets. I renewed, with little idea of what to expect by way of match-day experience. With even less idea now, I await the outcome with great interest. Could PRL come begging that Sarries rejoin their competition? Could Sarries end up in a Championship league with no competition?

Who knows?

Iím sure though that in the absence of any games being played in the Championship we couldnít just be promoted on the basis that we probably would have won the Championship - even though we probably would win it how do you prove it? can you imagine how Ealing for one would react??

Also, if the Championship is cancelled and/or simply folds if most of the clubs go bust, I canít see anyone begging us to come back to the Premiership - how far if at all could we rely on our shareholder status with the Premiership to seek readmission?

I got the call this afternoon. Having opted for the refund, I was asked if I was aware of the alternative options. I explained that a match at Saracens occupied about 6 hours when travelloing time was included, and that I saw no pleasure in spending 6 hours in a gas mask. I also mentioned the uncertainties about when, or indeed if, spectators would be allowed back. I stressed that I didn't want to sever connections and that I would be open to renewing for 2021/2022. That was accepted as perfectly reasonable and I am being kept on the database. All very professionally handled by Tim.
