How could they possibly know if they've literally been on sale to new people for a day?

I saw someone posted something along those lines on twitter.

He had looked at the available seats figures on the stadium planner, but not taken into account that will currently show as unavailable all seats which were last year ST holders.

First of all my position - I renewed early bird so should really have stayed out of this debate.

it's no surprise that the Club have landed this increase.  A story of supply and demand with a lot of people wanting to return back regularly.  Believe me the Championship was good, better than the premiership but only it wasn't the premiership.

I think the club could have done more to help appease the current season ticket holders who for one reason or another didn't early bird.  Not everyone has ready case and the finance package was only installed late on in the early bird window (although to be fair was there early on as well).

As for the new season ticket holders one word tough.  I'm not crying  over you like the fans  who struggled to get play off final  tickets.  I do understand however that not everyone would follow the Villa down a  coal mine, across a field of burning grass or through dogs muck. 

As for the need to increase dramatically the prices probably no need given the TV revenue and other outside sponsorship. 

One thing is for sure the away scheme is not going to be a freebe.
Agree with all of this.

People using the online calculator and adding two plus two and getting 35,000.

They are selling very well though.

I must be missing something obvious but wouldn’t it make sense to have the relocation day prior to season tickets going on general release to new buyers?

Help!!!

Trying to renew mine over the phone. I get music for about 2 minutes and then I’m cut off.

Anybody know if I can renew in person at the ticket office?

Yes I must admit I find that totally baffling and confusing also.

Why don't you do it online?

I wouldn't bother, we will lose all 19 home games.

Trying that too but the renewal function doesn’t seem to be working.

We can't sell 35k season tickets can we? Aren't we limited to selling 29k as you should have 10k home tickets available for sale plus 3k away tickets?

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.

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.
