Peterborough Panthers 2020

Recommended Posts

As i understand it Kent have issued a refund to its season ticket holders and Eastbourne have decided the following.

10 Match Tickets and Season Ticket Holders can have either a full refund or carry tickets over until 2021. Those people who carry the tickets over until 2021 will be given free admission to any meetings held this season. Like Cityrebel i am carrying my 10 match ticket over to 2021, if we get a few free meetings in 2020 then its a bonus.

I appreciate all that , it's the fact that People like Chapman deal with the problem as though it did not exist

...and that’s because he’s a clueless clown who is spineless hiding away from dealing with important matters.

I'm no defender of Chapman but all I'd say is, there's nothing to say that's already been said, which is;

"All clubs want some kind of racing if possible in 2020." 

Until there is word from the Government & the BSPA I'm afraid there's nothing to tell season ticket holders. 

It's also been suggested that season tickets may or may not roll into 2021 etc but no club can answer that for definite. 

The threat of small claims court doesn't stand when businesses have been trying to work or not work in an unprecedented pandemic environment. Plus the fact that no claim could possibly be made until the season completion at the end of October anyway. 

All I'd recommend is just a bit of patience rather than trying to bash & threaten Buster when he doesn't know WTF is going on himself. That goes on behalf of every other promotion in the UK. 

Exactly

The difference is, football knows where it stands. 

Speedway is between a rock & a hard place as it certainly couldn't afford behind closed doors at all. 

I fully understand that people's money is with individual clubs but the questions should be to the BSPA as a whole. 

The BSPA should be getting it's house in order, releasing statements etc on behalf of every club. Of course, no club is in the same position financially but for the fans, the plans for going forward has to be from the BSPA & not the individual club. 

That's where the questions need to go

 

Ask Darragh MacAnthony  if football knows where it stands. I think that you'd get a different answer, but that wasn't the point, it was just about communication.

The club has already communicated (June 25): "With the latest government announcement regarding reopening of public places there are hopes throughout the sport of speedway starting in August. Each club will be allowed to make their own call on whether to race in what will be a reduced season – without financial punishment from the sport’s governing body if any decide not to." -  therefore it's safe to assume that that's the message for all clubs from the BSPA.

If they are looking at half a season then why not just say what that will mean for season ticket holders and what the thoughts are in the more likely event of no speedway in 2020, adding that firm decisions will be made when it's decided if any part of the season is or isn't going to take place. Doesn't need the BSPA to answer that.

This is certainly a matter of communication rather than a failure  to issue refunds, no club should be obliged to do that until the season is officially cancelled and as things stand that isn’t the case despite what various know alls may say on forums and social media. Very possible that a shortened season might take place this year. 
 

However it wouldn’t have been hard for the BSPA to come up with a generic response for clubs to reply to enquiries with in relation to season ticket monies and people would feel a bit more informed and valued. Sadly communication and customer care has generally been poor for years as far as British Speedway is concerned.

I think I must live in a completely different world with outmoded views on decency integrity and morality. I really am unable to see how it is acceptable when asked for a refund for something that can no longer be provided to just keep quiet, similarly I fail to see when it is obvious that the product you purchased can't be provided it is unreasonable to expect a refund because a fraction of what you bought may be available at a date as yet unknown.

No!!! . I just think that there are levels of decency  honour and integrity that should be the norm for everybody. If that makes me a trouble maker I can live with that appellation.

You've been going long enough to know that you're in the wrong sport if that's your criteria and you've certainly had an unfortunate choice of team recently.

Can't understand why Peterborough can't act quickly like some other Clubs have?

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work that out....Chapman that’s why! 
Its probably because the moneys all gone and he’s hiding and hoping the problem will go away, no other explanation.

Even if that were true and I suspect it may well be. I would prefer he said that rather than just ignore the matter.

Agreed, Chapman is spineless and I doubt if that’s going to happen as it should have been dealt with weeks ago. Transparency and integrity are unfamiliar virtues to this inapt promoter!
