Despite a number of enquiries, the Board are currently reluctant to start promoting season ticket sales for next season prior to the outcome of the spectator test events to be held in May and early June. A decision may then be taken by the Welsh Senedd on whether to lift the restrictions to allow fans to return to the MetCoaches Community stadium.
More information on season tickets will be released immediately that any annoument is made regarding a return to watching 'live football' from the terraces at Penydarren Park. According to the Welsh Senedd's Coronovirus Control Plan before Stadium events could take place (numbers would be determined subject to outcome of pilot events) we would need to move to Alert Level 1 in Wales [see page 26].
In the meantime the following are five ways in which anyone can help the Club:
Soccalot – Run by Friends of Merthyr for the last fifteen years, this provides the Club with our main source of income during our forced hibernation period due to the Welsh Senedd current restrictions that prevents fans attended any games. The current rollover prize fund has now passed £2,000.
