Grimsby Town Football Club have today began working on a process to allow 2019/20 season ticket holders to either donate or claim a refund on the remaining fixtures originally scheduled for the remainder of the current season prior to its cancellation.
Following the official curtailment of the 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two season, season ticket holders have 5 games on their tickets outstanding. The Board of Directors took the decision prior to this official announcement to offer all season ticket holders the chance to receive a refund for the outstanding fixtures on a pro-rata basis or donate the remaining value to the club.
We have continued to receive correspondence from a vast number of fans, who have expressed their desire to renounce their right to a refund, donating their money to the club. During this difficult and uncertain time for the club financially, this generosity is incredibly appreciated and will help support the club through the most difficult time in recent history. The support this gives to the club’s cash flow will enable to club to ensure the manager has a competitive budget going into the 2020/21 season, whenever that may begin. We thank, in advance, all those supporters who have already informed the club that they will kindly donate the outstanding value of their season tickets back to the club.
Whilst a significant number of our season ticket holders have expressed their desire to waive their right to a refund and donate their respective proceeds, we fully understand that the current pandemic has caused changes to personal financial situations for a number of individuals.
Taking this into consideration, the club have developed a form that we kindly invite all our season ticket holders to complete at their earliest opportunity prior to 31st July 2020. This form can be accessed by CLICKING HERE. This will allow our administration staff to begin the process of issuing refunds to those who have requested one once they return to the club premises, at a date yet to be confirmed. Those requesting a refund will receive a call from one of our staff once our offices officially reopen, requesting your bank details. Payments will then be paid securely via BACS on a weekly basis.
Those season ticket holders who have not completed the online form before 31st July 2020 will be contacted accordingly to discuss their options.
As a club, we are stronger together, we will get through this extremely difficult period and we cannot thank you enough for your continued support throughout. We look forward to welcoming you back to Blundell Park as soon as it is safe to do so.
Up The Mariners!
