Season Ticket Refunds
Choices for Season Ticket Holders
As it became clear that the season was going to be finished, but behind closed doors, Latics fans were given an option on the unseen games.
Coronavirus has had an impact on everyone and everything, we at Cockney Latic pray for all those that have lost loved ones.
Football and sport seem to pale in to insignificance around this pandemic, but the decision has been made to return and finish the season, so we all need to hope it all goes well and fans observe the calls not to visit stadiums where their team are playing.
I can guarantee one team’s fans will not follow the guidance, we will wait and see. But for Wigan Athletic Supporters we have been given the option to watch all the games ion streaming, therefore donating the unused part of the season ticket, or picking an option to get their money back.
I can see how hard our club must be feeling the pain of no income but huge outgoings, so I donated mine, but different people have different circumstances and they must do what is right for them and their family.
Here is the information published on the official site:
INFORMATION FOR 2019-20 WIGAN ATHLETIC SEASON CARD HOLDERS.
- 2019-20 Wigan Athletic Season Cards and Match Streaming
- Three options available to 2019-20 season card holders
- Match streaming details to follow on Thursday 11th June
Following the announcement from the EFL that the 2019-20 Sky Bet Championship campaign will resume behind closed doors on Saturday 20 June, we wanted to update season card holders on the options available to them, with regards to their unused season cards for our five remaining home matches.
A number of discussions have taken place internally and also with a number of supporters with regards to the best options available. It has been decided that all supporters should be entitled to a pro-rata refund, should they wish to request one.
One idea mentioned by supporters that we have spoken to and others online has been to substitute the refunds for a ‘free’ match streaming pass, so supporters can watch our behind closed doors matches on their devices at home for ‘free’. However, we recognise this option would not suit all supporters and the experience of watching the match at home is completely different to that of watching within a stadium, so making the switch from a season ticket to a streaming pass was something we felt wouldn’t be appropriate to make mandatory. Equally, not all supporters may be able to do this. Essentially, the two are different products.
With those considerations and more, we decided the following three options would be available to supporters, so supporters have a choice that suits their individual needs.
- Request a pro-rata refund
- Credit the refund to your ticketing account for future purchases
- Donate the funds to the club and receive a ‘free’ streaming pass for the remaining nine fixtures (home and away – equivalent to value of £90)
*Should supporters have one or more season tickets within their household, there is the ability in the form below to, for example, request a pro-rata refund for some of those tickets and to donate the funds/receive a streaming pass for the other. The highest value ticket will be exchanged for a streaming pass.
SUPPORTERS SHOULD NOTE THAT MATCHES CANNOT BE CHROMECAST/UPLOADED TO A SMART TV. THIS IS DUE TO EFL REGULATIONS. MATCHES CAN ONLY BE VIEWED VIA THE APP ON A PHONE/TABLET OR VIA THE CLUB WEBSITE ON DESKTOP.
Supporters in the UK & Ireland should be aware that individual match passes for the streaming of games will be priced at £10 per match. Passes are £5 per match for those users outside of the UK & Ireland. Individual match passes for those who choose not to take the streaming option and non-season card holders will be available from Saturday 13th June. Audio commentary will be available for £4.50 a month. Supporters should also be aware any fixtures selected for live Sky Sports broadcast are available on Latics TV to season ticket holders only. Should a supporter decide to request a pro-rata refund, we will contact them individually for any future fixtures selected for Sky Sports broadcast to ensure they have a free pass for those matches. None of our first three matches have been selected for Sky Sports broadcast, we will communicate with supporters should any matches be selected by Sky Sports ASAP.
Any supporters currently subscribed to Latics TV for international season passes will continue to receive the matches as normal, whilst supporters currently receiving audio commentary who wish to watch the matches should cancel their subscription and sign up via the methods below. Payments for audio accounts will recommence on 13th June. You can cancel your audio subscription by emailing email@example.com.
