Season ticket gestures of goodwill

Only available if you purchase a 21/22 season ticket.
So not a goodwill gesture to those who had a 20/21season ticket.
Stevenage FC a family friendly club? Only if you are paying.

Google stevenage season ticket pledge

I tweeted it too.

I genuinely wasn't expecting anything back so anything is a bonus, but going back on a written pledge is shit PR.

They haven't gone back on the pledge have they, they're refunding the difference between the purchase price and the cost of the the ifollow passes as credit, as it said in that November article.

The extra thing that wasn't in the article which is now also an option is if you gift back the credit that they're offering they'll give you these "goodwill" things of vip tickets and a free third shirt, but apparently only if you're a STH in 2021/22 based on what Wasp is saying

That will be my first question when Tunners or Phil reply to me...

Glad the clubs marketing strategy is so solid and well thought out that they forgot about their previous promise which was still online and folded like a cheap ironing board as soon as someone sent them a well crafted email.

All about profit margins. Gate cash is worth more than club shop income.

They know almoat all ex season ticket holders are gonna buy a match ticket anyway. So they'll lose £60 worth of pure gate income profit if they give me 3 x free tickets. There are no real additional expenses incurred letting an additional couple of hundred fans in in this way.

Sell me £60 worth of club tat and they'll only lose the £30 profit on said quality merchandise. So they're £30 up.

And they get me as a walking advertisement for Stevenage FC in my new tight shorts and beany....

They are. I can't use my Covid credit against match tickets or merchandise, which is what they pledged.

I have an email stating that it can only be used against a new season ticket

That wasn't in the generic one. Which I didn't get but Katie did.

I made an enquiry as I don't want a new ST as I'll be abroad till at least November.

Who is going to be the first to file a small claims case against them at the county court then, I wonder.

(Just don't be surprised if Phil bans whoever it is as a result)

Only costs £25 and you can do it online

I’d be willing to sponsor a fiver if 4 others were also willing to see if Baldock can receive what he is rightfully owed. (Assuming he files the claim himself)

I really didn't care until I stumbled across the 5th November article, I expected nothing when I gambled on buying one. I even semi-ridiculed those who felt aggrieved.

Now I've written to the chairman and the SA as it was too wet for a second long dog walk.

Next it'll be the Football Supporters Association and Martin Lewis who does that money programme thing.

Being retired means I like having a bee in my bonnet on wet afternoons. It gets me out of the vacuuming.

The email I got whilst it doesnt say "only" it does suggest that by only giving the two options:

Gesture of Goodwill Credits can be applied to 2021/22 Season Tickets, which will be frozen in price or;

Gesture of Goodwill Credits can be waived and donated back to the Club - these Season Ticket Holders will receive the following Gesture of Goodwill Gifts;

Gesture of Goodwill is the wankiest phrase they could possibly have used too.

Very dangerous ground to be treading, pissing off your STH who have stuck with you through years of absolute dogshit on the pitch, many issues off the pitch, and have already donated lots of money to the club. Taking them and their loyalty for granted, not sure it's a particularly wise move.

Would it be wiser to give them genuine goodwill that may cost a few extra quid in the short term but make you more in the long term? They will soon find out I guess, but social media is showing a lot of anger/disappointment/fans not intending to renew.

Whilst this might leave a bad taste I genuinely don't think it'll hurt the club.

I'll still go to as many matches as I possibly can next season, as will you, Wasp and anyone else who's feeling a bit miffed.

I was never going to buy a new ST anyway, only did it this year as it gave me a better chance of attending reduced crowd matches.

If they didnt term it that way and just termed it a refund they would be accepting liability and then open themselves up to further claims.

By calling it gesture of goodwill it means they do "not accept liability for any financial loss to the complainant as a result of the matter complained about"

And furthermore if its accepted then there will be little or no rrecourse thereafter.

They could have used "without prejudice" too. Maybe I'll accept it without prejudice.

Last season T&C s said no cash refunds so seems they have deliberately used the term "Goodwill" .
As mentioned in pr previous threads fact this was mentioned in the T&CS does not automatically mean they are covered then if someone was to fight it.
But if they were to try to something for groups who bought family tickets they may really earn goodwill.
