I fully understand where he’s coming from. But will all season ticket holders be in agreement when the options arrive?

People will make their own choices based on their own situations. I personally will not take any refund or offer to credit my ticket account (something Latics fans have been offered) but for the time being I’m in work and have been working at home throughout. Other people’s circumstances will be different and any refunds would be welcome.

Worrying times really. The club hasn’t been in great financial shape anyway and this will obviously hurt. We talk about signings in the rumours threads as a group of fans but the cold reality may be that we have to shed all the off contract players and run with what’s left.

I won’t be asking for a refund either but as you say, a refund for some people at this moment in time might be something they just can’t afford to ignore.

So hard for the club or any business to plan ahead amidst the uncertainty. Businesses and clubs will be going lean and mean in the immediate term. I am sure we will be no exception.

Honest question, what is the best way to support the club financially right now? I don't have a season ticket for various reasons but I'd sell my Mrs to keep the club afloat if we were in trouble. At the minute is it buying merch? Do we think there will be some form of 2021 signup pledge for season tickets to allow the club to budget for next season? I'd donate the cost of a season ticket, anything to see us through this period. You cannot put a price on the memories I have supporting this club.

Massive respect to the players taking wage cuts and for IL putting £500K into the club.

I think some kind of fund raiser will be needed soon.

That was a hard read, very worrying times indeed.

As a non season ticket holder unfortunately I'm unable to 'gift' any funds to the club to get them through 2020 and 2021 other than allowing the club to collect 10 weeks Lotto from me this week.

I'm planning on purchasing club merchandise via the club shop, but should anyone set up a gofundme site, or have any ideas for donations and fund raising then let me know.
