The Foxes Trust approached Leicester City last week to understand and discuss their plans for season ticket sales for 2020/21 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting suspension of the current season.
Prior to the Club’s announcement on Monday this week, the Trust had a long discussion with the Club who outlined their plans, including delaying season ticket sales until such time as it is known when the next season will commence. The discussion also covered how the Club plans to handle the remaining fixtures under various scenarios including the possibility of games behind closed doors.
They explained why they felt taking the final direct debit for this season was the fairest approach. The Trust is pleased that the club is showing compassion should any fan be facing immediate financial hardship due to the current exceptional circumstances and encourages fans to contact the club if this is their situation.

The Trust understands that the next Premier League meeting will take place on Friday April 3rd, where the latest government guidance will be reviewed, and we would anticipate a further delay in the resumption of fixtures to be the likely outcome.
The Trust has fed back to the Club that if the behind closed doors fixture option looks likely to proceed, then it is vital that at least all season ticket holders have access to viewing the home games without the need to have a paid subscription to a multitude of channels.
The Trust will be working alongside fellow Trusts to campaign for free to air transmission of games and would expect political support to give a feel-good factor while fans observe the instruction to stay at home
During the discussion with the Trust, the Club expressed its desire to help local communities during this difficult time. If fans have any ideas in regards to community or questions it would like the Trust to raise with the club, then e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
