Last year's season-ticket campaign was a success, thanks to the unflinching support of our fans. In light of the scenario put to us by the authorities which will see a large percentage of the Carlos Tartiere allowed to be used, the club has decided to opt for a similar manner to reward the backing we have received during our most difficult year, when we weren't allowed to have Oviedistas in the stands. The 2021/22 Real Oviedo season-ticket campaign has the best title for Oviedistas. RETURNS which give you LIFE. And for us, life is what we feel when we see you RETURN.
We want every one of our season-ticket holders to feel the gratitude of the club, and for them to be able to enjoy a long-term discount, which they will be able to start benefiting from during this coming season. The criteria readjusts itself to enable an even bigger attendance in the current circumstances, and includes an added discount if you renew your season ticket before LaLiga kicks off... and all of it within a 'secure' scenario, in the context of the uncertainty which we have all got used to living in. Real Oviedo has worked on the final decision for our season-ticket campaign until the moment in which we received a clear route map from the authorities at the Government of the Principality of Asturias.
The Government of the Principality of Asturias has sole responsibility for deciding the permitted capacity for the current season at the Carlos Tartiere. The club has waited to confirm the percentages of the capacity permitted inside our stadium with the aforementioned authorities, in accordance with the evolution of the pandemic, and subsequently can present the following options.
Plans for Possible Scenarios
Opening with Limited Capacity, in accordance with the Level of Alert in Asturias
This is the event that we will start the season with. It will be conditioned by the evolution of the pandemic and the different parameters used to determine the levels of alert, and, as such, the level which our region is in at each moment. If the situations remains between Levels 1 and 2, then the percentage of capacity could be between 50% and 75%.
In this situation, the renewal preference criteria which we explain later will be adopted. Full season-ticket holders from last year will have preference over Base season-ticket holders. Within each of those categories, preference will be decided according the order of renewal. We will try to offer, as much as possible in accordance within the measures put in place by the authorities, seating as close as possible to your normal seat/area in the Carlos Tartiere.
Full Opening, Absolute Normality
This would be the most similar situation to the normality we had before Covid-19. There would be no limitations to access nor to capacity, nor safety distances. There would be no conditions or preference in place in terms of access to the stadium, be it with season ticket or with individual match tickets. Nevertheless, attendees will have to comply with the authorities' rules at all times (use of masks, hand washing, etc).
Complete Stadium Closure
This is a scenario that we do not want to even imagine, but which we must consider, even if it is as a remote possibility, in order to provide our season-ticket holders with all the information in advance. In that situation, which we hope is an unlikely one, we would not be able to offer access to any season-ticket holders.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR BECOMING A SEASON-TICKET HOLDER?
The design of our 2021/22 season-ticket campaign offers two types of situations, according to the decisions which our season-ticket holders took last year.
Our fans were given two options to choose between for the 2020/21 season, in what was a difficult moment of uncertainty when we didn't know what was going to happen. When last year's season-ticket campaign was launched, fans were given two options with multiple advantages, which went beyond being allowed entry into the Carlos Tartiere, but which did not allow for the possibility of refunds in the event of fans not being permitted into the ground. Despite that, thousands of Oviedistas offered their unflinching backing, opting for the full season ticket. As such, when it comes to renewing for this season, they will receive a series of additional benefits. Base season-ticket holders last year renewed their season tickets free of charge, while also giving up their right to refund for the games they were unable to attend at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
Therefore, bearing in mind the options chosen last season, when renewing for the current season you will enjoy the following advantages.

The club announced at the start of last season's season-ticket campaign that, no matter which option our supporters chose, no type of refunds would be made. However, as a show of gratitude, Real Oviedo would like to reward the support of all full season-ticket holders from last season, who are once again demonstrating their loyalty to the club. We are going to offer them a guaranteed discount of 10% on the price of their season ticket for the current and next two seasons.

We remind you that priority access to the stadium in the event of reduced capacity will be determined by the order of renewal, with extra priority for last season's full season-ticket holders.
WHAT WILL THE ACCESS CRITERIA BE?
In accordance with all legal and health guidance provided by the governing authorities (at this time only the Government of the Principality of Asturias) we will match the percentages of capacity established by the Level of Health Alert in our region, with these criteria and priorities:
Priority access for FULL SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS from last season, independently of whether it was a higher or lower-priced pass. Within the FULL SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS from last season, priority will be determined by the order of renewal for the coming season.
BASE SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS from last season. Within the BASE SEASON-TICKET HOLDERS from last season, priority will be determined by the order of renewal for the coming season.
Will I be able to access the stadium with my group of friends or living companions?
Yes, although we must bear in mind that the exact location may not be that of your season ticket, or that which you sat in prior to COVID19. The club has reached an agreement with an important platform, which will allow all season-ticket holders to choose with which group of family members or friends they wish to attend each match with, right from the first fixture of the season. This is all, however, dependent on whether the governing bodies and the health situation allow for groups to sit together.
