Season tickets is the biggest one for me as they will have to be refunded, TV not so much now as the games can still be shown
Wonder if the club could work with sky to allow the games on wigan TV live and tge club could give access for free to ST holders.

Im not going to ask for a refund at any point, i would imagine the club will do something for fans anyway but in situations like this those who can afford to should support the club.
I just don't see how that could work myself,Sky have like it or not supported the game for many years now so I just don't think they'll give away games at a time when they themselves will be screaming out for content, it didn't make any sense when the agent Harrison started on about streaming games and as I say doesn't make any sense now.

Clearly the clubs know they're in a spot regarding season tickets, the crap storm thats about to hit most people jobs wise will,im sure be high on the agenda of super league clubs because we fans have happily paid up front for a service that they haven't been able,through no fault but the virus been able to supply, most people would im sure never ask their club for the money back,people might not been in that position to write it off im sure the club can manage a few people handing cash backbit when that number is in the thousands well it'd be grim times indeed.
for non televised games you could then televised games isnt showed only on sky, your right but its an option. The season ticket money is a sticky one, they might have to pay it back it depends what people rule when it all starts back up, maybe see with football as that will start first as I imagine that could lay the foundation.

I won’t ask for a refund on my season ticket. The club will need all the help it can get.
I hope if you booked holidays you take the same stance with the relevant travel firms

Before DaveO comes wittering on about "insurance"/ How do we know the club doesn't have such in place either for unforseen events/disasters/pandemics etc??
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

I assume the club has,in all but name been mothballed, most if not all staff, including players on furlough, players seem to have taken a pay cut as well, they are surviving quite happily at the moment, the crunch will come when the season starts back up again and the furlough ends that will be the crunch time for most clubs, again its just an assumption on my part.

Most people will im sure not ask for their money back on season tickets but again I assume thats why the clubs are trying to find the best way to at least try and find a solution to getting fans through the gate, the sooner the better in most peoples eyes ill be bound, but for clubs they would surely be duty bound to offer at least a refund or a heavy discount on next seasons ticket, which comes around to next year if fans cant go to matches, they simply cant put season tickets on sale because they don't know if they'll have a product to sell people to sit in a stadia and watch it, you cant just hope for the best and take a fair chunk of peoples money, it doesn't work that way as we all knows I guess they'll work with the guidelines and try to get fans in at some point, mainly with an eye on next season.

And on another note, if for instance fans cant go through the gate to watch games then surely its pointless hiring the dw?it would be better at the robin park pitch no?

Can’t see why we can’t have social distancing at a home game, put a fan every third seat and then miss a row would mean you could fit a sixth into the stadium. That’s 4000 fans, so we could go every other game.

No other facilities would need to be open except toilets and they could be sanitised. The loos in the south stand only usually have 1 sink working and no blokes seem to mind.

Can't see opening the whole stadium for only 4000 fans being financially viable.

Most of the other 6000 ST holders wouldn't be happy either, especially if they miss out on the Saints derby.
