Struggling Sheffield Wednesday offer season ticket refund

English Championship football club Sheffield Wednesday are to offer season-ticket holders a refund after a dismal season.

The second-tier club, who are 16th in the table and without a manager, have told season ticket holders they can get their money back on the remaining home games.

The offer was made by chairman Dejphon Chansiri after a meeting with fans – and provides a refund on Wednesday’s remaining 10 homes games this season.

Fans have until tomorrow (Friday) to apply for the refund.

A statement on the club’s website said: “In his recent ‘Ask the Chairman epilogue’ Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri offered supporters the option of a conditional refund on 2017/18 season tickets.

“Supporters are advised that any season ticket holder wishing to take advantage of Mr Chansiri’s offer should email by this Friday, 5 January at 5pm.

“The club will contact everyone who has made the request next week with full details of the conditions and how the refund will be facilitated.”

Wednesday have an average attendance of 26,295 so far this season, which puts them seventh in the Championship crowd figures table. That figure is down three per cent compared to 2016-17 when they finished the season in the play-offs.
