Manchester United have emailed all their season ticket holders advising them that they will be refunded for the cost of their unplayedj games. Will ATFC be sending out similar emails to 'Shots' season ticket holders to offer refunds?
Do football clubs have a legal obligation to refund season ticket holders for the unplayed games?

I wouldn’t take one even if offered, and I don’t think that I’m the only one. The club is struggling enough during this pandemic without having to find money for refunds.

Edit: We had four more home games to go and for the sake of 40 quid or so (@ Early Bird concessionary rates), I’m quite content to let it go.

I'm sure someone far more knowledgeable in this will confirm or otherwise, but isn't there an legal obligation to offer a refund?

Whether fans take it up it their prerogative (I refused mine on my ST), but it should be at least offered?

Just as a slight aside, the local football club here is offering 2 types of season tickets. The first is a normal one, on which they will offer refunds on any games not played next year or those played BCD. It will then be your choice to accept or decline any refund next May.

But before those can be renewed you have the chance to renew as a 'Golden' season ticket. Whatever happens no refund.

So far of the 15,000 STH from last year, 3,250 have bought a 'do your dough' one.

Now tell me a football club is like any other business!!

I would have thought they must be obliged to offer a refund, as it is a failure to provide goods and services, although I cant imagine many would be petty enough to take it.

Spot on. Shahid said they've sold the same number of season tickets this season than at the same stage last. If a refund was offered I can't see any of our purchasers taking the money. We don't know what is around the corner and hopefully we will survive iif things improve by the autumn apropos crowds.

£430 million in debt? I’m sure we’ve heard similar about those Spanish minnows Real Madrid in the past as well, as for Manchester United going bust I would say I’m more likely to be playing snooker 🎱 with a kangaroo 🦘 than that happening!

The debt is what remains of the sum borrowed by the owners to buy the club
