Appreciation is extended to the more than a third of the premier seat pass holders who took advantage of the opportunity to renew their premier seat by payment by bank card over the telephone at the advertised times last week.
Renewals will resume on Tuesday in person at the office or by contact by phone payment and premier seat pass holders are reminded of the time slots below in the original news item regarding premier seat renewals which is reproduced below.
Linfield FC can confirm renewal arrangements for the popular Premier seats scheme, ahead of the upcoming 2022-23 season.
Seats which were last season priced at £80 are to be renewed at £85
Seats which were last season priced at £55 are to be renewed at £60.
The club is aware that a handful of seats have been paid for, for the use of under 16s and this small number of seats can be renewed at half price rates, subject to suitable evidence of date of birth being provided.
As with previous years, existing premier seat holders are being given priority / first refusal on the renewal of their seat (for a limited period only).
Almost all of the premier seats were allocated and paid for last season and the club expects that the vast majority of these seats will once again be renewed.
Renewal of the Premier seats provides exclusive access to the central Noel Bailie MBE hospitality lounge and premier seat holders are reminded that guests cannot be accommodated within the lounge. Only pass holders can be permitted within the corporate seated area and associated lounge.
Passes must be shown at all times to gain access to the seats and the lounge.

The club would appreciate the cooperation of premier seat holders with the following arrangements which have been put in place for the smooth and efficient renewal process.

Last season's Premier seat passes will be valid for the upcoming friendly games as follows
Saturday June 25 v Newtown
Saturday July 2 v St Mirren
New passes for new season
The club will be issuing new / different passes for the upcoming 2022-23 season, once payment has been received and details of when these new cards will be available for collection will be provided in due course.
Linfield will have a home UEFA Champions League game on July 13 against the New Saints and to gain access to the premier seated area and / or lounge for this and subsequent games, Premier seat passes must have been renewed and the new 2022-23 season pass collected.
Requests for moves / new premier seat holders
If every premier seat pass holder were to renew their seat, there would be very little opportunity for existing premier seat pass holders to move seats or for 'new' supporters to join the scheme from a waiting list.
The club's main focus on the premier seat scheme for the remainder of this month is to process the renewals of existing premier seat pass holders.
Only once that renewal process has been completed, will it become clear if there are any seats not renewed which the club can make available, either for existing pass holders to move to or for prospective 'new' or waiting list premier seat pass holders to join the scheme and acquire a non-renewed seat.
Queries either to move seats or to join the waiting list to acquire new seats can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org but consideration can only be given to these enquiries in early to mid-July, once the renewal process has been concluded.
As previously stated, the club expects the vast majority of these Premier seats to be renewed and on that basis, there would be very little scope to either move existing seat holders or accommodate a significant number of waiting list Supporters.
This club is regularly advised by supporters that certain seats are vacant and available but upon investigation, it usually turns out that the seat in question is paid for and therefore unavailable for supporters to move to or acquire.
As always, Linfield FC will require the patience, understanding, cooperation of supporters, or specifically premier seat holders in this instance, in assisting the club with the arrangements which have been outlined above, to make this renewal process as smooth and efficient as possible.
