Walsall have sold more than 1,700 season tickets as 24 hours remain of the club's early bird campaign.

The early bird season ticket offer has been extended twice to give fans more chance to buy, after initially closing at the end of March and then changed to April 7.

After being extended again, the offer now ends on tomorrow at 4.30pm, giving fans 24 hours to purchase a season ticket for next season.

There is also 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 sales currently stand at more than 1,700 tickets and if that reaches 3,000, all supporters who purchased will receive a partial refund.

Walsall chairman Leigh Pomlett released a video on the club's social media today thanking fans for their support, as they have sold more season tickets than the same time last year.

"I want to give a big thank you from me and from the club for the response to the season tickets, which has been remarkable in many ways," he said.

"I've mentioned this a lot to the press that despite everything that's going on in the world, our season ticket sales this year are up on last year.


"Not by much, but enough and certainly the cash that the club's able to take from them is up year on year.

"That is a remarkable effort and I thank you very much for that.

"That's the overriding message I want to give, a great big thank you to the supporters.

"I know talking to other chairmen, every last night, that we've done really well compared with other clubs in terms of the season tickets, so well done."
