Season ticket renewal extension, a refund dilemma and Celtic TV preparing for BCD football

“Anyone know if there will be a further extension on the deadline date for season ticket renewal? Just heard someone on the phone in saying the manky mob have gave an extra month so the end of June for their renewal.. hope Celtic do the same,” Paul Burns asked.

And the Celtic FC Supporter Liaison Officer John Paul Taylor responded:

“Waiting on official confirmation Paul but I do expect so.”

Another supporter, JR, asked these questions about season ticket renewals. “There does not seem to be an awful lot of info coming regarding season tickets? 28 May deadline? Games missed this season? Potential games missed of season ahead, but no talk of discounts or extensions? This isn’t right – whats the plan??!”

And the Celtic Liaison Officer responded as follows:

“Waiting on a bit of clarity but I believe there will be an update on the parts we know about shortly.”

And a third query, this time from Nicole who wanted some answers on this query from the Celtic Liaison Officer. “John Paul, what is happening with fans who pay their ticket via v12. V12 have told me regardless if the season goes ahead of not they will continue to take the money? They told me to contact Celtic direct for answers?”

 “Anyone who is signed up with V12 can request a payment holiday Nicole, you have to do this direct with V12 though as your agreement is with them, there is no charge and it will not impact on your credit rating,” JPT replied.

Nicole replied: “I’d rather cancel it with v12 and put my season ticket on a credit card if needs be. Surely Celtic have to tell v12 what is going on? No way all these fans can be left with this?”

Yesterday we carried considered the question of potential refunds on this season’s season ticket in the event that the games cannot be played and the season is called. That will mean Celtic are the 9-in-a-row Champions for the second time, the first time that has been achieved by any club, dead or alive. Read that article below, to get an understanding of the implications.

Celtic will, we believe offer supporters refunds, if the season is called and there will therefore need to be a decision taken by each and every Celtic season ticket holder whether they want that money back or if they are happy to leave it with the club to fund the club’s running costs.

Partick Thistle have just gone through this process with their season ticket holders and an incredible 97% opted to leave the money with their club by rejecting the offer of a refund.

Next season could be played, at least in part, behind closed doors and that could mean watching games that would not otherwise be shown on Celtic TV and we understand that the club is busy sorting out the capacity and the technology to make sure that the club’s own channel can service a much bigger audience – if it is required to do so.

Celtic is a well run football club and has cash reserves available to assist in weathering the coronavirus storm.

The club will also deal with each and every supporter fairly – or at least we hope that is the case.

But don’t let the ‘money in the bank’ stuff confuse the severity of the situation. Celtic has the highest costs and it is the supporters who fund the club. Without that revenue we’d be in trouble.
