Arsenal have announced that ticket holders will be entitled for a refund for the club’s final 10 matches of the 2019-20 season. The Gunners say it is ‘sadly inevitable’ the remainder of the campaign will be played out behind closed doors, with the Premier League planning to resume before the end of June.

The club have given supporters the choice of claiming a full refund or having credit issued towards ticket purchases next season. An Arsenal statement read: ‘As a result of recent Government statements and Premier League discussions it is now sadly inevitable that due to the COVID-19 pandemic our remaining home and away matches of the 2019/20 season will be played behind closed doors, with no fans present.

‘These unprecedented times have changed so much in all of our lives and although the UK Government strategy means that we now intend to complete the 2019/20 season respecting new parameters, we are disappointed at the prospect of fans not being at matches in the near future. ‘Like everyone, we look forward to the day when we are all able to safely return to matches. As previously stated, supporters will be entitled to a credit or refund for any match tickets or hospitality they have already purchased for future behind-closed-doors matches in the 2019/20 season.

‘Whether as part of a season ticket or for an individual match, supporters will be offered a credit for next season or a refund. This behind-closed-doors credit will be in addition to the two unused cup credits already due to general admission season ticket holders. ‘The process to credit/refund supporters who have purchased match tickets and or hospitality for these fixtures will begin immediately. Full details and timings will be communicated directly to fans.’
