I'm sure someone far more knowledgeable in this will confirm or otherwise, but isn't there an legal obligation to offer a refund?

Whether fans take it up it their prerogative (I refused mine on my ST), but it should be at least offered?
The club is not obliged to issue a refund.

However if you paid for your season ticket (goods) by credit card then there could be redress.

Like most people I would think we write it off for the good of our club

Why would you say that Brian if you pay for something then you want the product. I have said to the club give my refund to the NHS but no reply WHY

£430 million in debt? I’m sure we’ve heard similar about those Spanish minnows Real Madrid in the past as well, as for Manchester United going bust I would say I’m more likely to be playing snooker 🎱 with a kangaroo 🦘 than that happening!
I find they are very good at the jump shot Postie.
Indeed Steve

Manchester United have emailed all their season ticket holders advising them that they will be refunded for the cost of their unplayedj games. Will ATFC be sending out similar emails to 'Shots' season ticket holders to offer refunds?
Do football clubs have a legal obligation to refund season ticket holders for the unplayed games?
I wouldn’t take one even if offered, and I don’t think that I’m the only one. The club is struggling enough during this pandemic without having to find money for refunds.

Edit: We had four more home games to go and for the sake of 40 quid or so (@ Early Bird concessionary rates), I’m quite content to let it go.
A lot of clubs are offering refunds but also giving options like "Donate to academy" "NHS fund" "Local causes" I don't think many will want a refund as such ; the money was paid last August and hasn't been missed since then when the wives gave grief. I would think most Shots would do the same as the Birdman.

Hi Wood, generally most clubs will be covered by the following

The Club hereby excludes any liability for any loss, injury, costs, expenses or damage of any kind connected to any failure or delay by the club in carrying out any of its obligations under the Conditions of Issue which is caused by circumstances outside of its reasonable control; and any abandonment, postponement or cancellation of any matches

Oh come on. What genuine supporter is going to claim it?

Where did I say one would? Mind I have no idea what a 'genuine' fan is.
But I don't, nor have I ever, lived in another man's wallet and these are pretty desperate times for many.
All I was raising was the legal obligation......which Brian has commented on.

The NHS is a multi-billion-pound organisation which is (rightly) receiving unprecedented levels of financial support at the moment, via Government funding and nationwide donations.

Aldershot Town Football Club is a community business which has no means of generating income for the foreseeable. It, like many clubs, faces a bleak future.

Who do you think needs your £40 the most at the moment?
