Some new season tickets were given out when the new Main Stand was opened. More might be freed up through the Fan Update scheme which the club launched this season. This is the first step the club have taken in tackling the issue of membership cards and season tickets being used by someone other than than the rightful holder. The first stage of this was directed at those membership cards held by those with 13+ credits. All those card holders who weren't able to provide photo ID linked to the ID on the card had their cards cancelled. Approx 20% were cancelled. The first immediate benefit of the exercise was that more seats were made available to members. Never been so easy to get a ticket for the United game this season. This will eventually be rolled out to all members and then season ticket holders so expect a few more to be freed up. With this and the ARE I would expect several thousand more season tickets will be made available over the next 3 years or so, but still a pipe-dream to be thinking about getting one if you're not already on the list.Just wanted to ask yesterday what's the latest with that season ticket list, has the number gone down (new people managed to get in?) or not?
Pearce for the Athletic: "It has yet to be determined how many of those seats will be offered to the 23,000 supporters on the club’s season ticket waiting list which has been closed since 2011."
