FOLLOWING the announcement that the 2020/21 National League North season has been declared null and void, Guiseley have provided an update to season ticket holders.

A statement from the board of directors read: "Firstly, throughout the ups and downs of this unprecedented season, the standout point has been the unwavering support from our fantastic fans.

"When we started planning for the commencement of the season behind closed doors, we offered all season ticket holders one of the following options:

1. To carry over your season ticket to next season

2. A full refund

3. Donate your season ticket refund back to the club on a pro-rata basis, and take up your season ticket once spectators are allowed back in

"When the list of options was first published, we hoped that supporters would be back inside Nethermoor sooner rather than later, but we now know this will not happen due to the season being curtailed and the current coronavirus restrictions.

"This means our club has been denied the opportunity to generate vital match day revenue.

"The focus now is on ensuring our club remains on a sound financial footing and is in the strongest position possible to start the 2021/22 campaign.

"We fully appreciate the pandemic has had a significant impact on many people’s circumstances and if you require a pro-rata rebate on your season ticket for any reason then we will arrange this.

"All season ticket holders will therefore be contacted shortly and asked to choose from the following two options:

Option A: I would like to forego my rebate on my 2020/21 season ticket and allow Guiseley AFC to retain the money to help build for the 2021/22 season.

Option B: I would prefer to have a rebate on my 2020/21 season ticket.

"Once you have received your email, we ask that you respond no later than Friday, March 5, 2021.

"Please note if you do not confirm your preferred choice before this date, the club will assume you wish to donate your season ticket and will not require a pro-rata rebate (Option B).

"If you have purchased season tickets for other family members or friends, then please can you let us know which option you wish to select for those too.

"If selecting Option B, then we will be back in touch with you after March 5 to confirm further details.

"Once again, we would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you back into Nethermoor very soon."
