The AST has written to Arsenal requesting that all silver memberships are carried forward to next season. The case we have made is set out below:
We are writing with regard to the silver membership status of Arsenal fans for the season 2020/21.
Many supporters have paid in full for their membership for the season. The cost of a full silver membership is £59.
Some of these payments are a result of direct debits being taken and others the result of supporters being optimistic earlier in the season that tickets would be available at some point.
It is now clear that there will be no opportunity for silver members to use the principle benefit of this membership – the opportunity to purchase a ticket - in the 2020/21 season.
The AST is therefore requesting that the club now allow all silver memberships for the season 2020/21 to roll forward their membership to 2021/22 without any additional payment.
This would be the fair thing to do and we believe an early announcement would be positive news for many supporters who are seeking to manage their finances in this difficult period.
We look forward to your response so that we may communicate it to the many silver members in the AST.
