We know 2020 has been such a frustrating year for Brentford fans, unable to watch their team play in person at our new home due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic for more than nine months. We were delighted to be able to welcome some fans to two games earlier this month and it was great to see you inside our new stadium, but Government restrictions mean we are back to playing home games behind closed doors.
Throughout this challenging time, our fans have given valuable support from their home and we want this to continue while you cannot be with us. As part of our offer to Season Ticket Holders that froze their 2020/21 Season Tickets to next season, we were able to offer FREE iFollow access for home games and midweek away games until the end of December. We have now extended this until the end of January 2021.
As a Christmas present for Bees fans, to try and end the year on a positive note, we will be waiving the fee to watch iFollow for our home matches for Season Ticket Holders for an extra month. Our Season Ticket Holders can watch our home Sky Bet Championship games against Bristol City, on 2 January, Luton Town, on 20 January, and Wycombe Wanderers, on 30 January, as part of the VIP access to iFollow. Our home game against AFC Bournemouth on 30 December is already included but any cup games are not available on iFollow.
We would like to reiterate our thanks to all our Season Ticket Holders who froze their tickets for this season. Those fans that have bought iFollow access for individual games this season have also massively helped the Club. With games behind closed doors there has been a substantial reduction in income in 2020 and the fees from these games have assisted with our ongoing costs.
We hope to welcome all our fans back to our new home as soon as possible but the safety and health of all is the number one priority. Those who froze Season Tickets and have access to our home games in front of limited crowds will retain their position in the priority list. If you have any queries about access to iFollow or games, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Brentford FC. We hope 2021 sees the first games in front of a full stadium at our new home. But until it does, we hope you can continue your support from home.
