Sheffield United season tickets explained: How seats may be allocated if Covid-19 restricts capacity, general sale, prices

Sheffield United’s season tickets for the 2021/22 campaign go on general sale tomorrow – but there is still uncertainty as to whether Bramall Lane will be at full capacity next season and, if not, what that means for those who have forked out already.

Hopes of a return to full stadia next season were raised when prime minister Boris Johnson pledged all Covid-19 restrictions would be lifted by June 21. But that date has been pushed back to July 19 because of a rise in infections caused by the Delta variant of the coronavirus and with the Championship season set to start less than three weeks later, there is still uncertainty about what will happen.

Here's what we know so far…

Sheffield United season tickets go on general sale on June 23rd, from 9am, after the window for seat moves closes on June 22nd at 5pm.

How can I get one?

Tickets can be ordered via the usual channels of online and over the phone, and from June 21 at 9am the Bramall Lane ticket office reopened for customers to visit in person (9am-5am, Monday to Friday).

The club are advising supporters to socially distance while they queue and advise that they cannot allow access into the stadium to view individual seats, as they have done in previous years.

What about Covid?

The Star understands that United are not currently limiting the number of season tickets being sold. So if the worst happens and grounds have limits on capacity next season, there may have to be some decisions taken on how that process will work if the number of season tickets sold exceeds the number of fans allowed in grounds.

That process may be complicated further if the EFL insists on away fans being allowed into stadia.

United have plans in place but the situation is ever-changing. When a limited number of fans were allowed into the final match of the Premier League season against Burnley, United used loyalty points to decide the priority of sales and The Star understands that could be one option for next season, if needed. A ballot could also be employed and if United can’t get to full capacity, then those who miss out may be offered a stream of matches.

What have United said publicly?

On the Covid issue, not a lot – which is understandable, given everything is so up in the air at the minute. The government are still in talks with UEFA about increasing the capacity of Wembley for the Euro 2020 semi-finals and final, and the semis take place in two weeks.

In the terms and conditions of their season ticket sales, United have said: “Should COVID19 restrictions still be in place for the 2021/22 season, we will be adhering to all the latest guidance in line with the Government and EFL’s advice at that time.”
