It doesn't generally bother me but it was a pisstake at QPR not being able to see the goal line. Can't think of many Premier League grounds where it would be an issue. I think maybe Everton has some pillar views but I've always had a good view when I've been there. Maybe just lucky.

Was in the bottom row at Goodison a few years back (not watching Man. United before anyone asks!!!!) and view of most of the pitch was pretty similar to the lower witton at VP, just couldn't see the corner of the pitch right by the Gladys end. Not that we did much attacking that day (3-0 defeat).

In the scheme last season you could choose a seat. Even in The Championship they are able to put up the various away sections on line for people to choose a specific seat. The PL probably will show the view as well.

It was a bone of contention amongst my lot because when we went online seconds  after we could for the Albion away leg whole sections were blocked off as sold. We assumed reserved for box holders etc.

I know I'm only repeating what others have said but what the actual f*#! is going on?!

I get that we've got gazillionaires in charge and don't need the money but still having zero information about when season tickets are going on sale, 50 days away from the start of the season, is absolutely shambolic!

As a first attempt at a pre-season for the current custodians of the club, it's not a great start.

Indeed, what the fuck are they playing at?

I thought these were supposed to be serious people who know how to run a club - if that's the case, why do we have this current utter shambles around people being unable to buy season tickets?

What on earth can be complicating this?

Oh and the fact that the season tickets page of the OS is still pimping the early bird renewal window, which closed two months ago, is not massively impressive either.

As i stated in my original message, you would think they would want to make the most of the feel-good factor around the club straight after the play-off final.

As someone who is looking at being a season ticket holder for the first time, the lack of communication is shocking.

I get that prices and things can chance following the play-off final, but you would think they would have accounted for that scenario?

The longer the wait, the more I think there must be big news. This delay can't be simply because they can't decide on pricing, it just can't.

FROM PRAVDA

Aston Villa is delighted to announce that 2019/20 Season Tickets are now back on sale.

After our promotion to the Premier League last month, supporters will now get another chance to guarantee their spot at Villa Park next term as we prepare to welcome the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham, as well as Midlands rivals, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Click here to purchase yours now.

The Club have put together a number of affordable ways to watch Premier League football at Villa Park next season.

Adult tickets start at £370 (the equivalent of £19.50 per game) and there is also a renewed focus on families as the Club aim to attract the next generation of claret and blues.

Junior prices start from £70 for Under-14s and £97 for Under-18s, while a family package which includes two adults and two juniors sees the two juniors attend for free!

Continuing the family theme, an extra block in this part of the stadium will become a Family Area to extend family areas across all levels of the Trinity Road Stand.

Following a series of sell-outs last season in the Championship, Trinity Road Upper has been re-opened to meet the increased demand for tickets and supporters who used to have season tickets in the Trinity Upper will have the opportunity to move back to their old seats.

A deadline for that move has been set at Friday 28th June with supporters required to call the ticket office on 0333 323 1874 in order to claim their previous seat.

All other existing season ticket holders who are yet to renew have until midnight on Friday 28th June to claim their seat with relocations commencing from Saturday 29th June.

The Club will be offering a six-month payment plan via V12 which includes an arrangement fee of 5.95% that will be applied to the first payment. A breakdown of how the pricing would work is given below using a Zone 4 Adult ticket as an example: 

Representative example:

If one adult season card purchased at a cash price and amount of credit of £483.00 would be repaid by 1 monthly payment of £109.24 (which includes arrangement fee of 5.95% equal to £28.74), followed by 5 monthly payments of £80.50. The rate of interest is 0% per annum; the total amount payable is £511.74 and the total charge for credit is £28.74. Representative 23.05% APR

A note to supporters that Blocks P1, P8 and M5 have been moved to Price Zone 2 to bring it in line with match tickets being sold in those areas.

Keep an eye out on the Clubís communication channels for details of Hospitality season tickets which will be on sale shortly.

£32 a game, so circa £38 more expensive than following us away.

Nobody likes paying any more money, but oh well.

I would imagine the delay has been over V12 and the arrangement for credit.

I think those prices are - in the context of Premier League football - reasonable.

Our most expensive season ticket is £685.

Going on last year's prices in the top flight, only Watford, Burnley, Everton, Cardiff, Wolves and Huddersfield had a cheaper most expensive ST.

If we want Premier League football and signings, we're going to have to pay for it.

Only a 6 month finance plan? Do they want people to buy tickets or not?

Not that Iíve got one these days I would make the following observations, most are marketing positive ;
* price per game was always going to be more pro rata due to less fixtures
* pay more to watch a more premium product... perhaps not so many victories but hoping for plenty !
* new u14 cat good
* 2 kids free with 2 adults in family area... also extended to b7 and a8 so a choice of seat from all levels of trinity good
* note that p1, p8, and m5 all been moved to different price zone...  it sure wether thatís an increase or decrease?
* 6 month payment plan good with low fee useful to a lot Iíd imagine ?
* upper trinity re opened so previous seat holders can relocate which will free up quite a few in other areas . Relocation day may therefore be busier. Hopefully a few more options for us mere mortals that have to cherry pick a few games after relocations but guess match day tickets increase will be hitting new heights too .
* Iíd be intrigued if anyone has stats to see how many of last years ST holders renewed at early bird and from those left, how many can not afford increases for more premium product ?

Iíd be interested to see a table of early bird prices to see how much increases are ?
