A whole host of Sheffield Wednesday fans are furious on Twitter following the club’s latest ticket announcement.
The Owls are still licking their wounds after suffering an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at home in the Papa John’s Trophy against League Two side Hartlepool United, this is despite Sheffield Wednesday handing minutes to players such as Bary Bannan, Saido Berahino and Josh Windass.
Will Sheffield Wednesday be promoted?
Despite coming off this defeat, still sitting outside of the play-offs and now only being just over three weeks until Christmas Day, Wednesday’s Twitter account has decided to announce that fans can now buy Early Bird season tickets for next season.
A lot of Wednesday fans are very annoyed on Twitter following this announcement.
What have these Sheffield Wednesday fans been saying?
“I’ve had a while now to think about this. I don’t think anyone can really look upon it as anything other than the fact they want people to wait. They know many won’t be able to afford it now, once again Sheffield Wednesday not reading the room.”
“Just when you start to think we are making the right moves the fans get hit with something like this. I’ve never known a club, or a business make it so difficult to give them money. Delete the tweet and start again”
“In a period where it’s easier than ever before for people to stay at home, they do this… So out of touch with the fan base it’s scary. They’ll be the ones who lose out”
“4 days notice. 3 and half weeks before Christmas. Pay up or pay more. Shambolic”
“Prices are good, timing is horrendous. Was bad enough when eary bird finished at the end of January, this is a disgrace to have it before Christmas and on 4 days notice as well”
“Points deduction incoming”
“Joke of a club. He’s got no idea”
The fact that fans are being pressured into buying next season’s tickets in December has rightfully annoyed these Wednesday supporters, and the fact that prices slowly creep up the longer fans don’t buy a ticket this month appears to show the club are still very much out of touch with their fanbase.
