Mansfield Town season tickets to go on sale

Posted onPosted on 29th Jul

Mansfield Town is to start selling season tickets for next season from Monday “to ensure that the club not only survives, but prospers, both in the short and long term.”

The Stags acknowledged that it still does not know when supporters will be allowed back into One Call Stadium to watch matches because of coronavirus restrictions, so should matches be played behind closed doors, season ticket holders for the 2020-21 season would receive a complimentary voucher code to watch home first-team matches on iFollow Stags – the club’s online digital channel.

Due to prospective capacity restrictions for the League Two season that starts on 12th September, season tickets will go on sale for existing season ticket holders only.

The ticket office at One Call Stadium will be open from 10am until 5pm, from Monday to Friday, and the club’s telephone lines will also be accessible.

Owners John and Carolyn Radford said: “Following the welcome news from the EFL of the new season’s start on 12 September, many of you will be wondering when you are allowed back inside football stadia to support your beloved club.

“The simple answer is that we do not yet know at this present time. We are receiving regular communication from the EFL, who we appreciate are also entering unchartered waters. As soon as there is news on this front, we will communicate it with you via our official media channels.

“In a climate still of some uncertainty, the longer we advance without supporters inside One Call Stadium, the greater the challenges.

“Since our last home match, 165 days have passed without significant income to our football club.

“Whilst we have, and always will, endeavour to support the club financially to the best of our capacity, no club owner is a bottomless pit of everlasting funds.

“During this period, our contracted players have received 100% of their wages, and essential bills and other outgoings have also been paid. We have also made seven exciting new signings as we look to build a capable squad for the new season, and to ensure that we are as competitive as possible for the new campaign.

“The financial impact on football clubs as a result of the pandemic has received much publicity and we have known for some time that it would be significant. Wherever possible, we have taken steps to mitigate this impact.

“Consequently, to ensure that the club not only survives, but prospers, both in the short and long term, we are releasing season tickets on Monday, 03 August, for the 2020-21 season.

“Due to prospective capacity restrictions, season tickets will go on sale for existing season ticket holders only. The ticket office at One Call Stadium will be open from 10am until 5pm from Monday to Friday thereafter and the club’s telephone lines will also be accessible.

“In the past few months, we have been greatly heartened to receive a number of messages from season ticket holders who have told us that they will be declining a pro-rata refund for the matches that were not played last season.

“To those of you who have already made this pledge, our deepest thanks for such incredible selflessness.

“This outstanding act of generosity would significantly aid our club in this challenging period, if replicated by the majority of our fan base.”

The Radfords have also spoken of their sadness that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought heartache to its fan base and the local community.

In a message to their “magnificent supporters”, the owners said: “It feels like an age since we were last together at One Call Stadium and since that time – in mid-February – many of us have faced a range of unprecedented challenges following the COVID-19 pandemic which continues to affect the world.

“We were greatly saddened to learn of the loss of some of our supporters to the virus and our sincere condolences remain with the loved ones of those who we have lost, both within our fan base and our community.

“To those of you who have felt a sense of loneliness, health worries or financial uncertainty, you are close to our hearts and we greatly look forward to welcoming you back to One Call Stadium when we are allowed to do so, with the necessary safety provisions in place.”
