Sunderland have extended their season ticket renewal dates again but will provide a further update on 2019/20 season tickets when the fate of the current campaign is better known, according to the Sunderland Echo’s Phil Smith.
It has now been more than two months since the EFL season was suspended and it now seems were are moving closer to a decision over if, how, and when the 2019/20 campaign will be concluded.
It was announced earlier this week by the government that professional sport could resume at the start of June but that it would have to be behind closed doors.
That news has led some clubs to communicate with their fans over refunds for 2019/20 season tickets but it appears that is not the case for Sunderland.
Smith has reported that season ticket renewal dates have been extended by the North East club but that an update concerning this season’s tickets will come when more is known.
#SAFC have extended season card renewal dates again.

-First direct debit payment: Wednesday 1 July
Update on 2019/20 cards when fate of season is better known.

It appears that could be very soon as The Athletic has reported that the EFL is set to curtail League One this week and offer clubs a chance to vote on how the final standings will be decided.
That could cause problems for the Black Cats, who sit seventh in the table as things stand and may be facing another season in the third tier of English football.
Can you remember which Sunderland manager signed each of these 15 players? Have a go now!
This is an optimistic decision from Sunderland, though certainly an understandable one given the financial issues that the current delay has caused many clubs.
It has previously been suggested that fans will not be able to attend games until 2021, which would surely mean the club will have to give partial refunds for their 2020/21 season tickets.
It reports are to be believed, Sunderland should learn their fate soon and therefore update fans on refunds for 2019/20 season tickets.
