Yeah I can’t see us being allowed more than 1,000 fans in for most of the season. Probably season ticket holders and then hold some back for general sale to give others a chance to watch the occasional match. Dover’s rule on kids while making financial sense seems very harsh. Would like to think most clubs could encourage families to attend together as if they’re in the stand it’s a more efficient use of seating rather than having individuals who potentially have to space out.
Either way season ticket sales will be interesting because on the one hand it’s your best and potentially only way to watch football for months (and the season tickets might be non transferable if the government get involved) but on the other hand the risk remains that next season could be curtailed early if the $*** hits the fan. I shall be trying to buy one anyway, Saturday’s haven’t been the same for months!
Obviously a unique situation, but if this situation occurs will the club going to offer season tickets to existing ST holders first? Crazy as it is.
I would have thought so. I know some clubs higher up the leagues are not allowing new season ticket holders but that is a bigger problem for them than it is for us given our sales last season fall below any expected covid capacity limit. If Palace have roughly 20,000 season ticket holders but are only allowed say 6 or 8,000 fans at games I’m not sure how they are going to work things fairly.
I would hope the National League will allow some kind of paid streaming service for fans who cannot attend much like they’ve done with the playoffs.
