A lot of Southampton fans are full of praise for the side after seeing a tweet from a supporter outlining how the club was already sorting out refunds for away travel. Indeed, the club then replied, seemingly confirming their action.
Football is currently postponed to recent events, and a lot of fans are in the dark about what happens to the money they spent on games which have not happened when they were meant to.
However, it seems like the Saints are already looking to reach out to their supporters and are offering refunds on train travel, starting with people who were meant to be going to the away fixture against Norwich City in March, and it has pleased many, with one tweeting, “Fair play that’s class”.
You're welcome, Martin 👍

In a period of uncertainty, it is nice to see that the club from the South Coast are helping their loyal fanbase out and refunding when needed to.
This has not been the only good gesture, as one person pointed out they have also checked in on older members to see if they are ok and need any support.
Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:
I know some Premier League clubs are getting a bad press, but @SouthamptonFC just contacted me to sort out my refund for train tickets bought for Norwich away before the Premier League was suspended. An unexpected but welcome gesture. Thanks #Saintsfc

They also contacted my grandad this week (he’s over 70 and a season ticket holder) just to check that he was ok and was supported during this time. Was a lovely gesture 😊
