With most European leagues likely finishing the season in empty stadiums, clubs have decisions to make regarding fans who paid for tickets but won't be allowed to attend matches.

Though few clubs in Spain have announced options for their ticket holders, Madrid-based club Getafe is taking the forefront by giving fans a free season of league matches in 2020-21. Getafe president Ángel Torres said the more than 13,000 fans who are up to date with their ticket payments won't have to pay for La Liga games next season. though they will still have to purchase tickets for non-league matches. "With this measure Getafe wants to compensate the fans and thank them for their support in these difficult times," the club said. Getafe was in the round of 16 of the Europa League when the competition was suspended because of the pandemic. It has five league home games left this season. The club said the measure could be further extended if fewer than six home matches with fans are played by then. In England, Manchester United offered season ticket holders either a rebate for next year or a cash refund based on the number of games still to be played. Brighton offered a refund but said many fans agreed to donate the money back to the club or to a charity. Spanish club Valladolid also said many of its fans were giving up their rights for a refund "as a way to help the institution." Like many other clubs in Spain, Real Madrid and Barcelona were yet to announce their plans for season ticket holders. Atlético Madrid said it would give a 20% discount for next season, while Real Sociedad refunded 20% of what fans paid this season regardless of how the league would end. "We do not know if the competition is going to take place and, if it does, we do not know if it will be behind closed doors or with fans, which is what we would like to happen," the club said last month. "In any case, these measures will be applied even if the competition resumes with matches being played with fans." If matches continue to be played without fans next season, the club said it would refund 3% for each match, up to a total of 57% of the total price for the season. Germany's Bundesliga is set to restart without fans this weekend, but there was no officials dates yet for the resumption of the other top leagues in Europe. The Spanish league plans to restart without fans on June 12.
