“Lose more money” as in Covid deaths? The point about all this is that most of us will have had the jab by then. I received my first last night :) plus masks and social distancing will ensure it will be safe, apart from the bloke near me who goes to toilet 8 times a game 8)

What a (very) strange and worrying interpretation.

If all passholders attend there will be no income from the games, if no passholders attend then those that go will have had to pay (like walkups).

That made me laugh for sitting at the end of a row in east Stand central seemed like a really good idea when I queued at the Boulevard for my seats but there are a few in our row who have that issue and the thought of them going by face to face all those times is a bit off putting at present. I guess anyway with social distancing we will all be spread out around the stadium but there will be people who still don't feel safe going at first anyway. It would be useful to know how many seasons sales we have got at present as well. Incidentally I read it as 6000 if we were able to open the whole stadium, but in fairness to that discussion different people in Government seem to have different interpretations of it and then there are always the Allams unique user agreement pricing policy to deal with as well. No doubt the club will be thinking about this as we talk and we'll get some sort of indication soon.

I understand your thinking, but if no structure is in place before limited attendance fixtures, and your hoping for cash paying customers, the club would be at risk of losing the patronage of its most valued members in the future, who have already committed payments.

I suppose they could allow 3000 pass holders, and sell 3000 tickets, Unprecedented circumstances.

I'm not suggesting passholders should be limited, far from it, all I'm saying is the club will lose money if only passholders attend.

Hardly rocket science.

No way will the club sell tickets and prevent passholders from attending.

Oh I see, so your saying pass holders should “for the good of the club” give up their seats for paying customers.

Crazy.

I probably misunderstood your reply earlier to Armavinit,

If all pass holders attend, no income, if walk ups attend then income.

Not crazy, just misinterpreted.

Surely the income is already paid in from members, that money is helping to prop the club up in advance of actual games. That's part of the reward of getting discounted tickets, like buying in bulk at a retailer, you benefit from a lower per item price by buying all the product in one go and before you use them.

So members whom have paid in advance absolutely should get precedence over 'walk ups', I don't see how this should be any other way.

Neither do I, just an earlier misunderstanding in the thread.
