‘City For All’ 2020/21 season-ticket cards will be distributed next month.
Supporters have been unable to attend fixtures at the Utilita Energy Stadium since March, with the continued threat of COVID-19 meaning that all matches must be played behind closed doors.
However, given the possibility of fans being admitted back into stadia this season, the club has opted to dispatch cards to those who renewed ‘City For All’ season tickets ahead of the Sunday September 6 deadline.
All cards will be delivered - via Royal Mail tracked delivery - to the lead purchaser from early December.
Season tickets have been split into two groups: ‘Claret’ and ‘Amber’. At the point of supporters being admitted inside sporting venues under a reduced capacity, fixtures will be categorised either ‘Claret’ or ‘Amber’ - with only supporters who hold a corresponding season ticket being granted access.
‘Claret’ and ‘Amber’ fixtures will alternate until the club is able to safely and legally house each and every season-ticket holder inside the Utilita Energy Stadium at any one time.
This is in the best interest of ensuring each supporter is able to enjoy as much Sky Bet League Two action as possible, while offering as fair of a split of fixtures as possible.
City’s director of communications and commercial, Ryan Sparks, said: “Given the continuing, positive talks surrounding possible vaccines, we are taking further steps to ready ourselves in the hope we can welcome supporters back to the Utilita Energy Stadium before the end of the season.
“We are in constant dialogue with the local authorities and meet regularly with the EFL to discuss ongoing developments.
“We have everything in place to ensure, when we are given the green light, supporters can come back to Valley Parade - be it under a reduced capacity or without restrictions.
“The distribution of season tickets represents a final step in our hopeful anticipation for the return of fans to football.”
