WARRINGTON Wolves fans are being offered two alternative options to a refund on their 2020 memberships.

Supporters can donate the value of the games missed to the club and renew at the standard earlybird price next season to support the future of Warrington Wolves.

In doing so, they would become 2020 legacy members (read on for details).

Members can also choose to take a credit against their membership in future seasons.

Or, they can of course ask choose a refund.

A fan panel was consulted during this process and a deadline is in place for members to make their decision.

"As highlighted in the recent update from our club chairman Stuart Middleton, just like many other sports clubs, Warrington Wolves is facing a very uncertain financial future over the next few years," says a club statement.

"We are a club that owns our home ground with diverse income streams, the loss of which makes our financial situation all the more uncertain.

"With this in mind, and following consultation with our fan panel, we can now confirm two alternatives to a refund. Both of which give those who have generously offered their support the chance to help their Club even further."

As part of this process, Warrington Wolves are committed to freezing membership prices for the 2021 season for every existing member that renews.

Those supporters who are able to take the first option of donating the value of games missed to the club, they would become a Warrington Wolves 2020 Legacy Member.

This would involve their name being permanently emblazoned on the ‘2020 Legacy Wall’ at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, as well as their name being displayed inside the tunnel wall for the duration of the 2021 season, so the players can see the incredible commitment made

Also, their name would be on the team’s official warm-up shirt for the 2021 season, a uniquely designed 2021 membership card would be received and a dedicated ‘Legacy Round’ would take place during the 2021 season to recognise and acknowledge the support.

In the meantime, Wolves and fellow Super League clubs have agreed a deal with broadcast partner Sky Sports for club members to be able to watch their team's August home and away games free via streaming.

Since The Wire last played at Hull FC on March 12, eight scheduled home matches did not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In the reworked league season, which starts this weekend and runs until mid-November, Hull KR at home on August 8 will be played behind closed doors at Headingley in Leeds and will be the first of the Wire games made available to members on the Rugby Football League's Our League platform.

Wakefield Trinity at home, on August 29, also behind closed doors at a venue yet to be announced, will likewise be available on Our League.

Members will also be able to watch the away game against Huddersfield, being staged at St Helens' Totally Wicked Stadium on August 15, via Our League too.

As for Wolves' remaining six rescheduled home league games between September and November, it is not yet known if these games will be played behind closed doors at neutral venues or at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in front of fans.

This will be dictated by Government regulations arising for the public health situation further down the line.

These Wolves home games are Hull on September 3/4, Catalans on September 24/25, Wigan on October 8/9, Leeds on October 14, Salford on October 29/30, Huddersfield on November 8/9.

Wolves have said that discussions are ongoing to continue the streaming service into September if games remain behind closed doors.

Wolves members need to select their preferred rebate option by midnight on Friday, August, 21, 2020.

With those who do not make a selection before this date, it will be assumed by default that they are happy to donate the difference to the club.
