Relocation day is usually about now which is partially why I thought they’d have been on sale to existing season ticket holders by now.

My 4 reasons for the delay, in no particular order:
Decision on permanently reinstating the UT;
Issues around a resale partner;
Moving the away fans;
Knocking down the North Stand immediately.

There's no decision to make about the UT.  It was always open when we were last in the Prem and we were utterly abject then.

Resale partner?  Worry about that after we've sold some season tickets.

Away fans - again, no decision to make as they're already where they were when we were last in the Prem.

And the North Stand won't be flattened this Summer, there's not enough time.  If we do well this season I can see them announcing plans to rebuild it over Summer 2021.

And more often than not it was virtually deserted in the UT, not that I think they won't open it.

It can't be away fans as we've already sold ST to our fans in the Lower North which is the only place we'd move them to. And I don't see us doing that anyway.

Agree with the others.

Whatever the long-term plan is for where we call "home", at some point the North Stand will be addressed, and season ticket holders in there will need to be re-homed, at best temporarily if not for an entire season. Now's arguably the ideal time to do it, why wait until we're attracting bigger crowds to then reduce capacity by 7k?

If the North Stand is demolished at the end of next season, for example, I would think a lower tier of 5-7 thousand seats could be in place for the beginning of the following season. Further seats/tiers could be added as the season continues.
And renamed, of course....

VP will be rocking in August, silly to close one end which will inevitably affect things.

Hopefully comfortable mid table and stuff will happen next summer so we have nice 50k stadium ready for the champions league in 21/22....

You don't need to be to know that having recently sold thousands of season tickets for the North that we're not suddenly going to go, hold on, I have a cunning plan.

I happen to construct some of the most devastating ad campaigns this side of Farmers Weekly.

I renewed my middle Trinity season ticket in the early bird period on the understanding that I could relocate back to the Upper Trinity if we were promoted. The tickets section of the website doesn't seem to have been updated since before the play off final.

They don't seem to be in any rush, unless anybody else has seen anything different?

But do we have any actual numbers on how the early bird sales went, especially given the finance debacle? Other than those, we've sold none since. There was enough moaning on here about that sale being too early, bearing in mind that at the time I'd say the concensus was that we probably wouldn't make the play-offs. I'll bet there's fewer than there were STHs in A3/4/5/6 when we got told to bugger off elsewhere.

The resale function is being handled by the club now. It's already been tested, and the option is already live on the ST page of fan accounts.

You'll get your money back (£season ticket price/19) and the club will resell at full price – that profit covers the cost.
