At some point, football will return. And at some point, the fans will return to watch football. The first will happen sooner than the second, but even then and even with hopes of games being able to be played behind closed doors there is a great deal of uncertainty.
It’s not entirely surprising, then, to find that Liverpool have put the season ticket renewal process—which would have typically begun around now—on hold, though they have committed to no price increases whenever the games can begin to be played with fans.
“Until there is clarity around the fixture schedule, we have suspended the upcoming season ticket renewal process,” read a statement from the club. “A new period of renewal will be put in place once there is confirmation of the start date of the 2020-21 season.
“Season ticket holders will be contacted directly to advise them of the new deadline and provide as much notice as possible. Prices for general admission season tickets will be frozen for the 2020-21 season, and we will be in touch with supporters once these go on sale.”
As for the current season, the club reiterated their and the Premier League’s intent to see the season played out, and said if games can’t be played with fans as is expected those who purchased them can be refunded or have the ticket value put towards future games.
