Virtual Season Tickets

Recommended Posts


Seen this on the sky sports statement am I reading this wrong or are they expecting fans to buy a season ticket for closed doors games, so that they’re eligible for a virtual season ticket, surely not 😂 ripping the hole right out fans if that’s correct

if anything fans who have already forked out for season tickets should be getting this service free of charge.

I think this is  journalists jumping the gun a little as the discussions are still ongoing . Sky have the rights to 48 matches and all other can be streamed by clubs.   The clubs are still discussing  the platform for how season tickets will work in conjunction with existing season tickets and how fans can pay for individual matches and away matches.

It shouldn't be too much IT work to get Season Ticket holders set up with credentials valid for all games.

The model used for overseas buds to buy individual matches on  ppv over the last few years should achievable by simply removing the IP check which blocks UK purchases - that will take care of everyone else.

A great idea until being able to go along to a live game. No substitute for being there tho?! 

It's absolutely shite being there. 

Total waste of a couple of hours. 

And a complete rip off. 

Rather be working and listening to open aw mics or Smooth Radio depending what mood I am in. 

Saturday afternoon at Unit23 is magical.

I know your feelings Mr S. 

I don't share them.

I reckon people that have bought Season tickets will get this as part of the package already paid for - I would expect uproar if anything else was tried!

ST holders would probably have to pay for home Cup games as in normal times - and that would probably be PPV as per Non ST holders for all games.

It would be nice if Cup games were included as a one off (due to the lesser non-live product on offer) - but that may not be possible due to how match day income is distributed.

Season ticket holders have paid for a seat in the ground. They should have to pay to watch the livestream like everyone else. :)

Perhaps ST holders should be allowed in the ground to sit on that sit where they could watch the live stream from!

 

 

Season ticket holders are awesome.

I like your thinking. 

Plenty of room for us to socially distance. 

Thanks go to Shull, F Man and their ilk for making this feasible by staying away.

Hope all you Season Ticket Holders pay for the Season Ticket for the Stadium Car Park. 

That will entitle you all to park your vehicles outside your houses while your inside watching the Game on yir fecking telly.

Season ticket holders deserve to be fleeced by the money grabbing club for being so stoopit to buy a season ticket to watch that overpriced overrated crap anyway .

Even watching in the house dinnae forget to pay the Club for Matchday Hospitality. They need your funds. 

Then half an hour before kick off, you can nip out to Greggs for a few pies and cakes. 

Be just like the real thing.

Club wins

You win. 

Unfortunately, the team are shite and will lose as usual. 

Ha ha ha ha halfwits

It doesn't stop him sharing them multiple times I'm afraid Ricky, then he goes tonto at other people doing the same. "He is easily the worst poster the Forum has ever had."

While Shull has gone off the rails in the last few years he has about 30,000 likes from 46,000 posts.

Whither you like it or not that's some recognition people agree/like/are amused by his posts.

You on the other hand......................:lol:

Hope season ticket holders will be getting access for free. Dont think we should be paying twice. Think we need to hear from the club ASAP.

My reading of it is that we'll get it for free but that doesn't help the fans who don't usually buy a season ticket.

I reckon the club will just remove the IP check on the PPV option for overseas fans - so non ST fans would be able to pick their games as normal.
