We have rolled out a new feature on our online ticket portal which allows season ticket holders the option to ‘release’ their ticket for a specific matchday so other fans can buy it.
After a record 5,831 season tickets were issued for this campaign, seating inside Blundell Park on a matchday is limited. That’s why we are asking season ticket holders who can’t attend a game choose to donate their seat back to the Club for re-sale. This will help supporters who want to attend games find a seat, while also providing the Club with additional ticket revenue during the 2022/23 season. We are currently working on a rewards scheme for fans who donate their seat back on multiple occasions and will be able to update fans on this initiative soon.
The new ‘altruistic button’ was piloted ahead of Tuesday night’s game against Carlisle United and over 50 season ticket holders who couldn’t attend the game generously gave their seat back to Club for re-sale. After the game was abandoned, we will ensure that all those season ticket holders receive their tickets for the rearranged game back on to their cards and those fans who purchased the donated tickets, receive a full refund.
This new feature is a development on the ‘Season Ticket Buy-Back’ option which was trialled last season for the game against Stockport County when we experienced a home sell-out.
We hope that season ticket holders who can’t attend games will choose to use the ‘altruistic button’ so Blundell Park becomes even busier, and nosier, this season.
