Not so keen on the away kit, but the home one is alright.

Take it RSE is Ross-Shire Engineering from the Muir?

I think the away kit is a belter! I like the home one but it looks like they're wearing the kit over a shirt and tie.

I think they are both very nice. It's good to finally see a different colour scheme on the away kit.

I take it McEwan Fraser have given up on football marketing? They have quickly gone from sponsoring every club to sponsoring nobody.

That's the best home top we've had in a while. Most of our efforts over the past few years have, on reflection, been shit.

Both are pretty good, the collar on the home kit is a bit weird though. The video on Twitter is a belter - everyone looking like they've only just learned to walk and can't muster up the slightest bit of enthusiasm when delivering their lines.

Is it just me or is only the youth kit up on the website so far?

I’ve always thought that whomever picks the Macron templates we get is trying to pick the most contemporary kit, while Motherwell get the retro set.  Things haven’t really changed here, but at least they aren’t terrible.

Having been full of praise for our marketing person, they’ve had an absolutely shocking couple of weeks.  I assume McEwan Fraser have gone bust; quite why they needed to sponsor everyone under the sun is beyond me.  I quite like the obscure and rather pointless electrical engineering based sponsors County get whenever they need someone for a season.


Edit:  It does look like we’re sponsored by Father Jack.  The away kit should say GRLS.

The McEwan Fraser deal was announced as a 2 year deal 2 years ago. In the circumstances, I can see why they might be re-prioritising their resources.

RSE have historic Global links, and their deal is pointedly in relation to Ross County's charitable work, so clearly more to it than an attempt to sell more Ross-shire engineers, or whatever it is they do.

No surprise at the new sponsor as RSE are owned by the Macgregor family, County were maybe struggling to get a new “outside” sponsor on board.

In reality more money pumped in by Roy just indirectly through one of his companies.

That’s fair.  I do think something was up when McEwan Fraser stopped their interaction with the fans on social media about 18 months ago.

EDIT: in other news, sounds like there’s going to be a signing or two announced this week.

Could be utter shite, but I’ve heard that wee James Graham is away to Rangers and instead of a fee Rangers are giving us Stephen Kelly? Again, don’t take my word but it’s a decent source.

The latest from the club with regards to season ticket renewal. 

Following feedback from our fans, we can now provide additional clarity surrounding the season ticket sales for season 2020-21.

 

Firstly, the season ticket is going to work on a hybrid basis, where it is to be split over physical attendance (when this will be possible) and television streaming service, this is being directed to us by the Scottish Government (physical attendance) and the SPFL - most other Premiership clubs made the decision to sell season tickets relatively early, where we wanted to take a bit longer and make sure we had as much information as possible for our fans. We have also managed to keep to the same prices as last season, making us the most competitively priced season tickets in the Premiership on average.

 

The streaming service will be run through a new Ross County TV and the images will be of TV quality- supplied by an external TV production company and will be complimented with a pre & post-match show to add additional value to the season ticket. We are excited about this given that it is a first for the club and, will see all of our season ticket holders receive streams of every home match live without requiring subscription to any other platforms such as Sky. There will also be a Pay-Per-View option for all away games for season 2020/21.

 

Physical attendance is looking more positive given our response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we are eager to see supporters return as soon as it is safe to do so. Allowing fans into stadiums will not be decided by clubs, the SPFL, nor the SFA, this will be directed to us from Scottish Government. We are optimistic that we will be able to have fans in our stadiums prior to the end of the year although, again, we will be led by government on this. It is important to stress we will do everything in our power to ensure our fans are safe and satisfied when you can return to the stadium. With this in mind, we have also extended that from the start of the sales period that fans will be able to reserve their existing seats until further notice.

 

The Staggies Army loyalty programme was designed when we were advised that it was unlikely there was going to be a season ticket for the upcoming campaign, but also to work hand-in-hand with season tickets and other Ross County programmes and we have been in awe at the support the programme has received to date. The Staggies Army is very similar to other loyalty programmes run alongside season tickets at clubs across the Premiership which have been very encouraging and humbling to watch take traction during this Pandemic. Our vision was that should there not have been a season ticket for season 2020/21 this would help us maintain our battle against our financial challenges that includes being able to put a Premiership team on the park. We are aware that the membership benefits have been slow in getting out, however this is also due to the Pandemic and various partners being closed.  We can advise there will be a separate update on the Staggies Army incentives later this week.

 

We are very aware of some of the situations our fans find themselves in at the moment and it is an extremely challenging time for everybody, our football club is indeed included in this.  With this in mind we encourage and welcome any of our loyal and dedicated fans who want to discuss anything further, to contact us either via email on [email protected] or call 01349 860 860 where we will of course be happy to speak further. Due to limited staffing and volume of contact it may take 48 hours to reply to some queries.

 

We thank all of our fans for their continued support and dedication during this time, and we will work, with you, to provide the highest quality of services at the club and indeed football on the pitch.

I'm not at all surprised by the local difficulty with technological solutions.

My good friend Brian Mclaughlan mentioned the worry the club have and with an elderly and rural demographic, there are many that will be disenfranchised.

Why would anyone buy a season ticket?  We dont know when football can start, and if spectators are allowed they will be socially distanced.  So there isn't a guarantee a season ticket holder would be able to attend every game.

Obviously they want the money in the club hence the tickets are put on sale.  I thought maybe a home streaming season ticket could go on sale and then that could be discounted against the cost of the actual season ticket when its known how many games will be available.

On a positive both kits are superb.  Will definitely get one of them.
