Walsall extend Early Bird season ticket campaign

By Liam Keen | Walsall FC | Published:

Walsall have extended their Early Bird season ticket offer, while introducing a new three-month payment instalment plan for supporters.

Banks's Stadium

The campaign was due to end on March 31, but with a lack of fixtures due to the coronavirus, it has been extended until April 7 to give fans more time to buy a 2020/21 season ticket.

The club have also offered the option to pay for the new season ticket in instalments over three months, to ease the financial burden for fans.

Saddlers have confirmed the first payment will be made once the ticket is purchased, with the other two coming on May 1 and June 1.

The instalment offer is only available at the ticket office or over the phone, however.

Chairman Leigh Pomlett said: “The Coronavirus is not helping anyone’s household and while there may be a strong will to buy a season ticket, there’s no cash to do it with.

"So I’m trying my best to spread the burden for the fans with a new Early Bird offering."

Since launching the Early Bird campaign, the club have so far sold more than 1,000 season tickets.

Meanwhile, Pomlett has said that the club are planning to release next season's kit early to help generate more cash.

"We're going to release the shirts early, the new kit," he added.

"We'll try and bring that forward so people have got something to get excited about.

"Anything that can be done that generates cash for the football club is far more valuable than any loan from the government, it's extremely valuable cash.

"We're seeing if we can bring the shirts forward, which will generate some cash and we'll do a deal around that too.

"Anything that we can do, creatively and imaginatively from the commercial team, to bring in cash in this difficult time, I will sanction."
