Everton Football Club has confirmed Season Ticket renewals for the 2021/22 season will commence later this month.
The Club announced in December 2020 that the renewal period, which typically runs from January to April, had been postponed for 2021/22 renewals due to uncertainty as to when supporters would be able to again attend matches regularly because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Following positive updates from the Government on the UK’s roadmap out of lockdown and the proposed relaxation of social distancing rules from 21 June, the Club has stepped up its preparations to welcome supporters back next season, with the Season Ticket renewal window opening at 9am (BST) on Tuesday 25 May.
The window will remain open until 5pm (BST) on Tuesday 13 July.
As part of the Season Ticket campaign, the Club has maintained its 2020/21 prices in acknowledgement of the season that has been lost to fans, with only three of 19 league games set to have been played in front of a crowd due to Covid restrictions when the season ends later this month. As in previous years, a Direct Debit option will be on offer, allowing supporters to spread the cost of their Season Ticket over seven monthly payments.
Everton’s Chief Executive Officer, Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale, said: “Like all Evertonians, I’m counting down the days for the return of fans to Goodison in significant numbers.
“Given the scale of the national vaccination programme and the ongoing fall in infection rates, the anticipated relaxation of social distancing rules on 21 June has given us the level of confidence needed to confirm Season Ticket renewals for 2021/22.
"I’m thrilled by that. But I will be even more thrilled when I hear that Goodison roar once again as the siren plays – and we all eagerly await the sound of the first beat of Z-Cars to echo around the Grand Old Lady.”
Due to lockdown restrictions, only the fixtures against Arsenal and Chelsea in December have been attended by fans so far this season, with capacity restricted to 2,000 for both games. Everton’s final home game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers has been moved to Wednesday 19 May (kick-off 6pm BST) to allow for the admission of 6,500 supporters.
Season Ticket Members have received a refund for each match they have been unable to attend in 2020/21, with the final refund payment to be processed at the end of May. Further information on the final refund procedure can be found here.
Should the capacity of Goodison Park be restricted for any Premier League matches in 2021/22 as a result of any COVID-19 measures applying to live events, ballots will again be used to ensure a fair distribution of tickets, while the same refund process will also apply. In the event that capacity restrictions on Goodison Park are imposed, more information on these processes will be communicated at the time.
Supporters will be able to pay for their 2021/22 Season Ticket in full at any point during the renewal window, between Tuesday 25 May and Tuesday 13 July, or sign up for the seven-month Direct Debit option offered through Premium Credit*.
Renewals and payments will be online or over the phone only and there will be no option to pay at the Club’s Goodison Park box office or the ticket desk within Everton Two.
For the first time, Season Tickets will be issued digitally for 2021/22, allowing supporters to access the stadium using their smart mobile phone. More information on this and how supporters can take advantage of the switchover from Season Cards will be made available in the coming weeks. If preferred, supporters will be able to purchase a Season Card for the 2021/22 campaign at an added cost of £5.
All 2019/20 Seasonal Hospitality Members will be contacted in the coming weeks about the renewal process for the forthcoming 2021/22 season.
Fans who have registered for Everton’s official rewards programme, Everton Rewards, prior to renewing their Season Ticket will receive points which can be redeemed when making future Club purchases on items and experiences including Goodison Tours, Official Memberships, match tickets and future Season Tickets.
