Could any one please confirm that the Holte End only has 500 season tickets left please (source from someone on Twitter). From what I was told, this would mean virtually no tickets available on a game to game basis. Is this true or complete bolx?

Why would we limit the amount of ST we can sell. Is it a league rule?
I'm sure I read it unless I've imagined it. Man Utd for instance have 53k season ticket holders and a massive waiting list. They could easily sell the ground out to 73k season ticket holders but have to cap the number I'm sure.

They can sell as many as they want.

They probably set a limit themselves as, if they know they can get 76k every week, having 20k match ticket buyers means fewer people taking the financial saving of a ST.

The season ticket cap, looking at other clubs, appears to be 70% to 75%.

If there are only 500 season tickets left in the Holte, then on a 70% cap, this would leave 4050 available per game.

Couple of questions if anyone has any answers please.
Am I correct in thinking that as a ssn tkt holder, if I can't attend a game I can sell the ticket for that game back to the club, which they can sell on, at match day ticket prices?
Does anyone know when memberships eg cub/claret etc become available to purchase?
Thanks in anticipation of any replies


I think you can buy Claret Membership now, and still could, even in the run up to the Play off Final.  They just stopped giving preferential ticket sales to members who joined after a certain cut off date.

When you go on the membership page everything relates to last season, looks like you can purchase but might be a bit of a risk.
I don't know what browser you're using but there's nowhere to click buy memberships under chrome or firefox, nor was there in the run up to the play-offs?

Even taking away the potential extra cash (it's certainly not a sure thing, some seasons it's definitely been cheaper to be a pay per game fan), it'd be a really bad long-term move to fill the stadium with ST holders.

If casual fans can never get tickets, they're not going to develop much of a bond with the club, and they'll go elsewhere. We won't build the next generation of ST holders if they can never go to games.

Only showing 500 left as % kept back in a block by block basis for match day sale plus there was still be loads of last seasons ST holders still on hold until window closed . These then put on sale after relocation day. Yes it’s right that % are kept for match day. Don’t think weve ever reached max ST level though but that would be amazing support .... and that’s coming from someone who can only cherry pick a few games a year which is going to make life very difficult this coming season !!

That's why Man United get such low crowds, by having more season ticket holders than anybody else.

Or...

You reduce elasticity of supply per game, placing additional value on the season ticket to guarantee attendance. You therefore drive up demand for match by match tickets, which  sell quicker as a consequence. The end result is you increase supply, not by reducing season tickets, but by building a bigger ground.

If I were to buy a season ticket now. Could I change it on relocation day for another area that became available should I wish to do so?

Season Tickets for Aston Villa's 2019/20 Premier League campaign are set to break all records as they close in on the incredible 30,000 mark.

It is the first time in the modern era that so many Villa supporters have bought a season card guaranteeing them access to all league games in the campaign.

Since being available again on Monday, sales have soared in anticipation of our return to the top flight with more than 3,000 snapped up within the first 24-hour period.

Added to those who had already renewed – including more than 20,000 ‘Early Bird’ Season Ticket holders – the previous record of 27,709 from 2008/09 season is set to be surpassed, resulting in the decision to limit the total available to 30,000.

Chief Commercial Officer Nicola Ibbetson said: “The demand for Season Tickets has been remarkable and we thank everybody for their incredible support. We started with a record-breaking ‘Early Bird’ period of sale and the momentum has continued. This has come after an exceptional surge in matchday attendances at Villa Park last season.

“We have decided to cap the total number of Season Tickets for 2019/20 season at 30,000. It will give supporters who are unable to buy a Season Ticket for whatever reason, be it economic or logistical, an opportunity to buy matchday tickets for our league games at Villa Park.

“It will enable close to 8,000 matchday tickets to be sold to Villa fans for each home game of what promises to be a really exciting season.”

The deadline for the small number of existing Season Ticket holders who have not renewed for the new campaign to do so is midnight on Friday 28th June.

Relocation day on Saturday 29th June will be for seat relocation only. No new sales will take place.

The club has created a waiting list for new and returning supporters who did not have a Season Ticket last season.

Supporters can now register their interest by entering their details on the waiting list, which will then be categorised by order of registration on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to availability.

Those on the list will then be notified as new Season Tickets become available.

You can register by calling 0333 323 1874 or clicking here.

I was going to leave it for a few more days but tried again earlier and decided to go Upper Trinity. Thank god for that.

30,000 though, unprecedented. It’s funny to think back when I  first started going down in 90/91 we averaged just over 20k. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Since Villa said there will be a waiting list tonight, 1500 people have joined it already. We're back baby.
