Accies will not be offering a Virtual Season ticket but will charge £10 to stream a game. Would have preferred a VST but can't argue at the cost.
That's pretty decent would consider paying that.

I quite like that idea from Accies - I'd imagine away fans/neutrals will be chuffed with that, as long as it's open to everyone.
Yip, for away fans too. How does a virtual season ticket work anyway when no-one knows when fans will be allowed back in?

Motherwell and Killie have sold the ticket as being for 19 games - fans will get a pro-rated discount for next season's ticket for every game that is behind closed doors. Dundee United have a similar scheme I think.

Do these clubs have something in place for fans who don’t renew for 21/22?  I know a large % of season ticket holders renew year in year out, but there might be first time or first in a while buyers who might not be sure if they will renew next season.

They know what they're paying for. If they don't renew in 2021/22 then they won't get their discount (if a discount is needed).

Don’t disagree.  But for those fans who aren’t confident they’ll renew next season such offers aren’t much different to the clubs selling tickets on ‘any 20/21 game that fans can attend’ basis. 

striking a balance here is very difficult and the category of fan I talked about is probably the hardest to find a solution for. Just seeing if somebody had found that balance.

St Johnstone will get round to publishing our plans around Bonfire Night.

In Motherwell's case if you don't renew you'll be eligible for individual match tickets for the number of games played behind closed doors.

I, for one,  am shocked that the Guardian's Golf Correspondent may be wrong on Scottish Football broadcast rights.

Not a thing, and alarmingly nothing at all about home games for which supporters have paid a season ticket.

My mates have Celtic and Rangers season tickets. 

They told me their ST only covers virtual access. If they didn't renew they were losing their seat and told tough titties.

Is that true?

The Accies SLO said there will be a PPV option for away games (through the opposition's channel, seemingly) with the option to have AcciesTV commentary.

Option is to sign up for a months subscription.

This is what my English team Aldershot Town did. Season ticket is for 23 games and 23 games is what you'll get. Even if it's next season. Then news came out that there was possibility of letting fans in on a restricted capacity. Which will be more than enough to cover all season ticket holders and still have some capacity left over to sell tickets as first come first served online.

Clubs are allowed to sell PPV, but are probably trying to push as many season tickets as they can before they release details. Would expect a lot of clubs to launch this next week.

This sounds rather ominous for non-season ticket holders for home games but from a selfish perspective I’m more interested in the away games so hopefully you’re correct in that we’ll hear more on them soon.

That's specifically for HibsTV subscribers, which is a service that many clubs have had available for several years. Killie launched it about 18 months ago. Almost every club uses the same provider, Stream Digital, who are also running the streams.

 

It only costs something like £6 a month or £60 a season and domestic subscribers normally get access to full match replays plus additional exclusive content (eg interviews). At those prices you're clearly not going to get live streams because it would devalue the season ticket (and the normal service you pay for).

 

It's entirely possible (and I think likely) that clubs will make PPV for live matches available through the same provider, probably at a higher price (eg £10/£15 per game). However, at the moment it makes sense for them to leave a bit of uncertainty about that in case if pushes a few more people towards buying an ST.

It's still a bit poor this. Scottish football fans have been brilliant during this crisis, backing all of our clubs to the absolute hilt. Surely the least we deserve is a bit of communication on the matter.

We should be able to see any game we want regardless if you are a home or away fan/ ST holder non ST holder.

I appreciate there are legal obligations ect but even a slight nod or wink either way isn't too much to ask.
