    non renewals


    0 Not allowed!
    Non renewals I know there is another thread for this, but just from the people I speak to, I know of at least 6 or 7 people who will not be renewing. I reckon we could be down 3 - 5 thousands season ticket holders. Next season we will see lots of blue spaces.

      3-5000 down isn't too bad*, before Christmas people were predicting double that. It those with a seat actually attend the matches then it probably wont look any different as the real attendance is down by this amount anyway.

      *It's probably £1.2 - £2 million lost revenue so not as bad as it could have been is probably better than not too bad. It will still be one of the highest number in the Championship.

      I just hope it doesn't effect our ability to get some new players in for next season. Worst case scenario 5000 I reckon. I know where I sit 5-6 people had dissapeared along my row.

      I doubt it'll fall that much.......however, it is clear that upwards of 15000 people have become season ticket holders, and who had not been regular Albion fans, Withdean and prior.
      Many of them will be wondering if they really love the team so much, that the want to continue paying for a seat for every home game, and the time commitment it entails.
      We'll just have to wait and see, and if it does drop off, I hope the club can consolidate the attendance on the lower tiers rather than have the big blue gaps.

      Its hard to judge from the original statement. If the op refers to 6 or 7 non renewals from for example 10 people its a concern. If however its from 60 or 70 people then nowhere near as bad. Of the 20 people ive spoken to 18 are renewing with 2 of them planning on bringing along new season ticket holders

      I have a feeling those cancelling will regret it, I firmly believe CH has the ability to give promotion ago next season and if we have a bit of luck and make it then they will back scrambling for tickets desperate to see their favorite PL team play at the Amex.

      They'll all come crawling back if a playoff/promotion is on the cards.

      ...thats of course if Chelsea, Arsenal or Spurs aren't on the telly at the same time.

      I'm afraid those in charge at the club have to take responsibility for any major downturn in season ticket sales next season. The appointment of one of the most inept managers I have seen in nearly sixty years of watching the Albion, coupled with a bunch of summer signings who, with few exceptions, have proved to be a waste of money, has meant that this season has been an almost total disaster. Unfortunately, even the appointment of a manager who appears to have more idea about what is required to do more than just survive in the Championship, will have come too late for many. Hopefully, survival this season and a summer of some signings who will actually improve the team, might actually persuade some people to either renew or to buy a ticket for the first time. We shall see!

      I think I'm right in saying that there's a fair old turnover rate each season anyway. Plus as said above, they'll come crawling back within the first month or so if we're at the top of the table.

      Edit: F me that's a miserable post above mine.

      I'm not too worried about a few thousand non-renewals to be honest. There are plenty of Eastern Europeans, who can take their place. We just need to sign a Polish goal machine and a couple of Baltic ball players, hey presto - a transformed team and a rocking stadium.
