Good gesture but a week or two too late and I can't see it having a big impact on the crowd size. They should have done this when they realised hardly any season ticket holders bought their seat.

Problem is I paid 33 as a season ticket holder, for my seat. So still 3 worse off than if I had not claimed my seat too early. Hopefully, they will learn from their mistake but wont hold my breath!!

Exactly. The club have made a huge mistake with the pricing of this match and even with this "gesture" I am still out of pocket. Even the 10 I am getting back still has to be spent at the ground so they are not really giving me anything.
In the 30+ years I have had a season ticket I have not missed a home cup tie and I feel a bit cheated!

If I  buy something for 4 with my 10 voucher, I doubt I  will get any change in either cash or vouchers.
Itll be use 10 or lose the difference.

Massive mistake by the club.

Id expect them to load the 10 onto my card as Villa Cash to spend as I see fit.

Is every season ticket holder getting 10 voucher. I got a 30 ticket as soon as the window opened.

Agree with this. Also, the admin cost for printing vouchers and posting. Wouldn't it have been easier to put the 10 cash on everyone's season card?

That would have been the sensible thing to do, but it definitely states a concourse catering refreshment voucher. Like others, I never buy any refreshments on the concourse and don't plan to. The club really dropped a bollock with this.

Just to round off the evening looks like the M5 link from the M6 will be closed at 10:00

Anyone getting a voucher is getting something free, just enjoy a couple of free drinks or some food on the club that you weren't expecting to get when you bought the ticket.

Except that they aren't free drinks or food because I have paid up front for them.
If I am getting a partial refund it should be up to me how and where I spend it!

Were you execting that refund/voucher when you bought the ticket? No you weren't so it is free.

Except it's not. Punters have already shelled out the ticket money and might not want the dodgy pies on offer.

Whether they want it ot not, they're not paying for it so it's free. The ticket prices were a mistake; the vouchers are a partial recompense.

Good grief, it is free. You may not like what has been offered but it is still free as no one that had bought a ticket was expecting it.
