2020/2021 season tickets
Sheldon 20 May, 2020 21:19
I have just received an email about season tickets for 2020/2021

I have until 15 July to sign up and get my preferred seats by 15 July for a 10 % discount.

The email does not discuss in any way how the current season may or may not be finished or what is likely to happen for the next season

My personal view is that the current season will be finished behind closed doors or cancelled and that the majority of next season will be played behind closed doors or not at all. Surely until we know they should not be trying to trick people into guessing what is going to happen

Quite unprofessional in my view

I just cant see myself signing up until I know I can watch some rugby at Sixways

Strangely will be renewing.
If it wasnít for Covid may not have been, but feel club kind of needs us & if we donít support it now it may not be around.
Worried a few clubs may go under. Have heard the usual names being banded about, but also one very surprising name who are currently being kept afloat by a man/family who makes money via property. This may not be a growth area for a few years.
No one is making money from rugby. Really approve what the new owners are doing. Thus feel itís our turn to maybe put our money where our mouth is.

There is a Q and A with the owners today coming out but I cant help but feel that should have been done yesterday and news about STs released today.

Having said that, I will certainly be renewing and have a few new mates that will be joining as well.

Club is in a really difficult place regarding refunds as its obvious to all that the club does not have a lot of money and can not give that back instantly sadly. I would also imagine there may be a PRL universal approach that may have to be taken regarding refunds which has not been decided yet due to still being none the wiser if this season re starts.

And there is also the consumer rights act.

We shall see what the future holds.

NW2 21 May, 2020 09:43
The email certainly didn't make me want to rush to renew.

Whispering_Death 21 May, 2020 09:49
I think thereís a very good chance stadiums wonít open until the new year so personally Iím not renewing until I know I can actually go and watch rugby. If stadiums donít open until the new year I really donít see how any clubs will survive so I hope Iím wrong.

I find it a bit contentious that they are trying to sell a service that they donít yet know they can provide.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
ROLLO 21 May, 2020 10:15
That is spot on Abmatt. As you said in an earlier post there ius also the consumer rights act.
I am all for help helping the club but what at present have they got to sell - a dream ?

usa warrior 21 May, 2020 11:51
Well, I suppose you can make your own choice?

I will am renewing and will support the club as they will need the funds. However completely accept that there will be different views to that and also people who may, unfortunately, not be able to renew due to job circumstances. Tough times.

As above, video out today which should give some answers, I hope.

For people like me who wish to pay by direct debit the deadline is 5th of June which I think is unreasonable, not least because we probably will not know by then what is happening to this season let alone whether we it will be sensible to attend matches.
Obviously most clubs are on a financial knife edge but I think the current deadlines are not helping supporters, it feels more like a donation than paying for a season ticket.

I think the owners have done a brilliant job and done everything they can in the circumstances.

They have put a lot of time effort and finance into our future. They canít predict what will happen this season so are doing a great job on the things they can work on and improve.

But why why why do the usual bunch of moaners come on here whinging and being so negative.

I think if you gave some of these people free season tickets and unlimited free beer they would still moan the beer was warm!!!

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
TrueWarrior 21 May, 2020 18:46
I feel sorry for whoever runs the Warriors Twitter and facebook account, they must have thepatience of a saint.

It would be impossible for the club to speculate on next season as the plan is to complete this season. The club have issued a contingency plan if the games do not go ahead or are played behind closed doors, that all supporters will be issued refunds if they choose. Cant really ask for much more based on the current scenario.

If you dont want to buy a season ticket next year because you are not convinced you will see rugby, no one is forcing you.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
usa warrior 21 May, 2020 22:10
Also as they said, the DD for the 8 game ticket won't start until we start attending. Safe bet that, I'd suggest?

At some time rugby will return to Sixways and so I will renew my season ticket. £250 will not break the bank but I would be much poorer if Sixways stood empty for the next few years. They can keep my money for the outstanding ,games if push comes to shove - it is not a lot but very little helps !

Agree.
Will be renewing ST & more than happy to donate any rebate for this season games to the Academy.
Strangely, donít feel comfortable giving any rebate to club but if they ring fence the academy they can have it....& if they canít....well club can have it & @#$%& my feelings comfortableí.
Iím 52 now & rugby has been good to me. Played in Scotland as a kid & teenager, then in Cumbria, Bristol, London & back to Bristol, with 3 games in Stourport. All great fun.]
Thus time for a wee pay back, especially as no one is making money out of rugby apart from Sarries players.

Asterz 24 May, 2020 23:51
For me, renewing and donating my remaining to the club isnít based on a decision of when weíll see rugby. Itís to help confirm I will always be able to see rugby.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Sheldon 27 May, 2020 11:09
On reflection the 8 game ticket is very tempting and well thought out.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Grasshopper 27 May, 2020 23:35
5th June is premature for expecting Direct Debit renewal, as far as I am concerned. I will wait to see when/if 20/21 fixtures are confirmed and if H&S arrangements are satisfactory.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Abmatt 28 May, 2020 10:04
That is next Friday.

We donít even know what is happening with this season yet.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
ROLLO 28 May, 2020 15:17
I think they had little choice to put out the details. What the response will be I have no idea, but the half ST is a good idea.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets

Has anyone received a renewal package yet ?

So far, I havenít seen anything !

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Malvern Man 29 May, 2020 13:14
The renewal packages for my wife and myself came this morning. Direct debits will be renewed automatically with the same seats. Ten per cent price reduction.

We're happy with that.

Fiver 29 May, 2020 13:22
For some reason I don't get emails, I used to when my daughter had a season ticket though. Found it easier to renew online.

Life will go on, covid-19 can't last forever, rugby will return and we'll soon forget all about it.

Right now the sun is shining, I'm not allowed to work so I'll keep riding my bike to retain my sanity.

Sometime ago they sent out one of the usual news emails, but at the bottomed was a note that you had to click a link to keep your email on the system. Perhaps you missed that and thatís why you donít get them?

I've only just been made aware of a new South Standing ST available. I wonder what capacity the ground now has?

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
ROLLO 30 May, 2020 13:36
I recall seeing that announcement somewhere but can't find where. A good move in my view. I would like to see something simliar at the North Stand.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
WorcesterSauce 30 May, 2020 22:38
Itíll happen with the new stand, whenever that may come. I think there is room for 300 to stand at the top of the south so itíd take capacity to about 11,800. How they will police it on match days, who knows but I guess it wonít really be a problem unless we sell out.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Faithful_City 31 May, 2020 08:31
Yes, if we ever get the new North Stand the atmosphere in there will be fantastic with the whole of the first 10 rows standing.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
ROLLO 31 May, 2020 14:28
I think in the new world that many capacities will be reviewed. Bristol are quoted in TRP today to be looking at how they will segregate supporters , with a capacity of 27K they are better placed than most.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Abmatt 31 May, 2020 16:21
They reckon they will be able to squeeze in 10k.

I reckon we can get in 2.5-3k max.

I've taken the view that these are extraordinary times, and while I can retain my job, I'll be cutting Warriors a bit of slack.

In it for the long haul I guess......

Hopefully ST holders will be thanked / rewarded for their commitment and support in some small ways.

After long and careful consideration my wife and I have decided not to renew after 20+ years of supporting, mostly as S/T holders. Given the way the season was going (again!) before lockdown, we were thinking it was maybe time to give up. During lockdown we have been amazed to find that we really haven't missed it that much.
We will continue to follow Warriors progress(?) and come to some games when it suits us, but won't be forever thinking "next season will be better" only to be disappointed again.

Drahm for England 06 June, 2020 16:47
First had a season ticket in 2005. Thought they were good value then so have had one every year since! I've have renewed again - glutton for punishment, me!

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
PMB 08 June, 2020 13:37
I was one of a small group who started in Div 4N and finally did not renew season tickets the last time Warriors were relegated. Since then we have moved over the road to Westons Fields and supported WRFC in level 6 and enjoy our rugby at that level both home and away.

I was much amused to see "standing tickets" for the South Stand, something we suggested years ago at one of the supporters/management meetings with Jim O'Toole. Policing could be a challenge as many season ticket holders prefer to stand as it is so will seat holders be enforced to sit?

Anyway I still monitor Warriors progress (?) but would suggest to those not renewing this time join us over the road, the beer is better and cheaper as well.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Diverdave 10 June, 2020 14:03
Well thatís us renewed, Iím champing at the bit to get back to Sixways, typically Iím sure it will coincide with a nice trip offshore back to work.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Abmatt 10 June, 2020 14:07
There is a government meeting today to discuss this. No timelines will be agreed but the general consensus is autumn at the earliest.

Re: 2020/2021 season tickets
Garym 10 June, 2020 16:44
I must be one of the few on here who hasn't renewed (having had a ST since the mid 90's). I know that there is the option of the I/2 Season Ticket, but my main gripe was the poor marketing/communication regarding the known "unknown" of what happens if the games for next season start behind closed doors, if they did say something on this then I have missed it. I know that there is no answer to this yet, but not to acknowledge what might happen in that scenario is just poor marketing/communication. Just a simple statement saying that in that situation, the following would apply ... (whatever that might be). Interesting that I saw an update from Jim otoole on LinkedIn in his professional capacity saying he would be surprised if there are crowds before the end of the calendar year
