Normally by this time the club would have been pushing the season tickets but clearly, there is no way that can happen as we dont even know when we will ever be able to actually attend a game going forward.
That is surely a huge concern for the club and one which would take some sorting out if suddenly we could attend when no one has purchased a ST.

Worrying times all round.

Welsh Government has said that there are no plans to close any of the field hospitals at the moment. so the stadium won't be hosting any matches any time soon. Or any training sessions in the barn.

leinster and munster have frozen season tickets for next season. i think it will be the same with us. if and only if games come back we may have limited availability for existing season tickets holders for this year and a bit like 1st come 1st serve. season ticket seats will be spread out around all 4 stands insuring 6 feet apart. going to be very difficult to manage if possible at all

If it meant keeping the Scarlets survive as a region I'd be willing to buy a season ticket even if it meant not being able to go to a game all season.

The Swans are apparently refunding season ticket holders and it’s going to cost them over £1 million.   That’s enough to bankrupt them .

I'm not sure why they would do that.

Just a few suggestion...

-Issue Season tickets packages soon.

-All season tickets would need to be digital/on mobile only ( needs a bit of thinking about, but it should be possible).

-Create multiple segregated sections in the enclosure and identify a limit of numbers in each section, ensure it is identified on the season ticket. Alternatively the enclosure option might not viable, so ST holders there could receive a discount option to use a stand.

-Only members of the same household could be seated together in the stands.
Otherwise occupancy of every 4th seat (2 empty seats) in the North and South stands.
(I recognize that ST holders would not necessarily get their previous/preferred seat)

-Certain stairwells and stand access to be for entrance, and the next for exit.
i.e. S1 is way in, S2 is way out and so on.

-Restriction on people getting up during the game ( ht only).

-Not sure about bars and The Barn at this, point but I think some form of service can be figured out..


And then the doubts about fixtures...so...

Couple of options ( maybe more).

-Receive a refund for any fixture cancelled

or

-If a fixture is cancelled, receive a 'credit' toward a future fixture.









-Seats together can only b for people that live together

So would I, but I put money away each month so when renewal is due I've got the cash. I'm not sure everyone could afford it, and some wouldn't be prepared to do so. Some ST holders wanted a reduction in prices last season as we only had 10 home league matches, whereas the previous season there were 11 games.

I'd certainly be prepared to pay for my seat.

You've made some very good suggestions there Wil. However my only downer, and sorry for this, would we need the Senedd's permission for large gatherings ? R is still hovering just below 1 apparently.

no they have given people the option to have a refund on the last 4 home games or be able to watch the last 9 games home and away on free streaming
 
Most people will take the streaming I would guess
 
TBH I doubt we will see any games in front of a live gate until we get a vaccine so I personally don't expect to attend any rugby games for the next 12 months or so , the government will not allow it

Fair enough, but I'd still be prepared to buy a ST for next season,and if I don't get to see any live games at the Parc, then so be it. I'm not looking for a refund on my ST for this season either. I do accept that some won't be able to afford to do that though.

I think  99% of people will not expect any refund , that money is essentially spent in their head
 
In terms of buying  a season ticket for a season where they won't get to physically attend any matches
 
Some certainly will , many on this forum will especially if it helps save the club
 
It's a fine gesture some can afford to make, others can't
 
fair play to anyone who can and is willing to do so

The first few games of the season will probably take place behind closed doors. I wouldn’t like to predict when limited crowds may return and I think the general expectation is that ‘normal’ crowds won’t return until a vaccine is found and deployed.  With these points in mind, I’m wondering if it would be more sensible for the club(s) to plan for the 2020/21 season taking place without any crowds at all. 

I'm thinking that the cost of opening up the stadiums to limited crowds may be more costly than simply keeping them shut.  

That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.
