THE earlybird deadline for Burnley 2020/2021 season tickets has been extended indefinitely for up-front payments, the club has confirmed.

The original cut-off point was scheduled for March 31, but due to fixtures being postponed until the end of April at the earliest following the coronavirus pandemic the club has decided to leave the frozen prize offer open until there is a clearer picture of how this season will conclude, and the knock-on effects for next season.

A club statement read: "Burnley Football Club would firstly like to send our best wishes to all supporters and we hope you are safe and well.

"We understand that there is an amount of uncertainty regarding earlybird renewals for the 2020/2021 Premier League season.

"As a result we would like to inform all supporters that the earlybird deadline for 2020/2021 frozen prices will now be extended beyond the end date of 31st March, and will remain open for the foreseeable future, for all pay up-front season tickets at frozen prices."

Due to the nature of the 12-month direct debit option, however, the deadline cannot be extended to supporters using that option and those payments will still be taken at the end of April, as scheduled.

The statement continued: "Any supporters wishing to pay for the 2020/2021 earlybird season ticket by direct debit will therefore still need to do so by 31st March.

"We are also aware of supporters' concerns around these Direct Debit payments for the 2020/2021 season.

"The first payment for this does need to be taken at the end of April, as scheduled, as this is the contractual agreement for all Direct Debit payers.

"However, we understand that supporters may have other priorities during the current climate and, as such, any supporters who wish to cancel their direct debit season ticket may do so, and the club will waive the cancellation charge."

For full details on purchasing, renewing, or cancelling a season ticket supporters are being directed to the season ticket hub of the club's website.

For any general questions regarding tickets supporters are asked to email

It is only possible to buy and renew season tickets online at present. Supporters will be advised when purchases over the phone are active again.

The statement added: "The club continues to take the lead from the Premier League in terms of rearranged and future fixtures and will update supporters as soon as we know more information.

"As always, we encourage supporters to stay safe and to follow the Government and NHS advice and guidelines around the Coronavirus.

"We thank you for your ongoing support."
