This season, writing of the Trust’s programme page is being shared between Trust Board members Ceri Stone and Terry Sinnett. This week Terry writes…..
One of the aims of the Trust is ‘to represent the views, needs and aims of our members (and supporters) at all times’. This naturally includes protecting the interests of season ticket holders.
We appreciate how the Covid crisis has affected fans, our club and football in general. We were proud to have worked with the club’s management in agreeing season ticket options for last season, and this season.
Fundamental to those needs was that a refund option was made available to those fans that requested one but also a recognition that fans who were able to forego a refund for this current season, were suitably rewarded.
We were delighted therefore that our ongoing work with the club resulted in the news that no exiting season ticket holder will pay no more than £99 for a season ticket for next year and Under 12’s only paying £23. The package has been well received by fans not forgetting that, if we should get promoted back to the Premier League, these prices will still apply. Current season ticket holders have also been given extra time to renew to take advantage of this great offer. A great result.
This level of cooperation between the club and the Trust can only be good for our fans and the club going forward.
Last week saw a limited reintroduction of fans into stadiums and we all look forward to the day when we can return to the Liberty in a safe environment. We have been working with the club in finding the right and best solutions and will look forward to their announcements when the time is right. We are mindful of course that decisions on club policy will be determined by Welsh Government regulations.

At the time of writing, our last 2 games resulted in mixed fortunes. A very good win at Forest but a disappointing loss to Middlesbrough. With a home game v Luton and tonight’s game v Bournemouth, we hope we have returned to winning ways ahead of the big one coming up this weekend.
Enjoy the game #YJB
