Luton have expressed their sincere gratitude to fans who have donated their refund from the remaining five home games of the season back to the club.

On Tuesday, the Hatters announced the options available to season ticket holders who will be unable to watch the last five home games of the season at Kenilworth Road, starting on June 20, due to the coronavirus pandemic forcing matches to take place behind closed doors.

While all season ticket holders are entitled to request a refund before 10am on Monday, the club has confirmed approximately 90% of those who have responded so far have decided to donate their refunds back to the club, qualifying for the ‘Legends’ pack – which includes, amongst other things, access to streamed coverage of the remaining fixtures via iFollow, as well as their name on a commemorative team shirt for the 2021-22 season.

A club statement said: "We simply cannot over-state our gratitude to all ticket holders who have decided to generously donate their refunds back to the Club.

"We have made no secret of the pressure that the Coronavirus crisis has put on the Club’s finances.

"With games set to be played behind closed for the remainder or the season, vital income from so many departments across the Club is now unavailable – and the costs associated with playing behind closed doors remains high.

"While the situation remains serious, your generosity at this time will help to reduce the impact significantly as we continue to steer the Club through these treacherous waters.

"We would also like to encourage all season ticket holders who have yet to notify us of their decisions with regards to refunds before 10am on the 15th June.

"We would also like to thank season ticket holders who have contacted us to request a refund.

"We do understand that the Coronavirus crisis has placed many families in a very difficult position with their own personal finances.

"All 2019-20 season ticket holders have made a significant contribution up to now, and we do not underestimate the pressure that some supporters will be feeling at this time."
