The club have stated that they will not be offering any new season cards for the 2022/23 campaign due to the limited capacity that the City Ground can offer and in view that potentially within the next couple of years the Peter Taylor Main Stand could be redeveloped, which would lead to headache if more season tickets than seats were to be requested to be renewed.
The club are also looking to re-allocate existing season card holders in the lower Bridgford end although supporters group Forza Garibaldi have asked the club to reconsider, saying ‘it creates a unique atmosphere’ by having fans there.
