WANDERERS reported more than 3,000 season tickets have now been snapped up just seven days after they were made available.

Currently on sale exclusively to fans who purchased a season ticket for 2020/21 at a 10 per cent discounted rate, the take-up over the last few days since the club sealed promotion to League One has thrilled staff.

Around 8,000 fans stand to benefit from the discounted tickets, provided they purchase before the June 7 deadline.

Supporters will be back in EFL grounds next week as the end-of-season play-offs begin across all three divisions.

Over the course of a week, the Championship, Leagues One and Two will see 12 teams contest semi-finals with a view to qualifying for a Wembley final at the end of the month.

The government confirmed on Monday that clubs will be able to welcome fans into their grounds for their respective home legs, although no away fans will be permitted.

Giving an update on the latest stage of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday: “We’ll unlock the turnstiles of our sports stadia subject to capacity limits.”

The first games that will benefit from the easing of regulations will be Bournemouth at home to Brentford, and Barnsley welcoming Swansea, in the Championship on Monday, May 17.

Both home clubs have already opened ticketing ballots for supporters. For Bournemouth, they are hoping to allow up to 2,300 fans into the Vitality Stadium. Barnsley expect to be able to welcome as many as 4,500 supporters into Oakwell, which has a much larger capacity.

In League One, Oxford United are set to allow 3,000 U’s fans in for their tie with Blackpool on May 18.

The other clash should see Lincoln welcome 2,500 fans for their first leg with Sunderland on May 19. The return leg on May 22 however is likely to see the biggest crowd of the play-offs, with 10,000 expected to be allowed into the Stadium of Light – the maximum permitted under the terms of the Government’s roadmap.

In League Two, Newport could welcome just shy of 2,000 fans inside Rodney Parade for their first leg with Forest Green on May 18. The return leg on May 23 could see 1,300 inside the New Lawn.

Tranmere host Morecambe on May 20 and could welcome 4,000 to Prenton Park, with the return leg on May 23 likely to see around 1,600 allowed into the Mazuma Stadium.

Wanderers hope for a greater percentage of their capacity to be available by the time they reopen the UniBol in August but are currently unable to estimate exactly how many season tickets will be made available.
