SAINTS supporters are expected to need a 2024/25 membership to secure home tickets after season tickets have completely sold out.

The club have confirmed that season tickets for Southampton's return to St Mary's have sold out - after renewals were set to expire earlier this week.

The exact figure for season ticket sales is unknown but the club are expected to keep back around five per cent of tickets for match-by-match sales.

In addition, Premier League rules state that clubs must maintain up to 10 per cent of capacity or 3,000 - whichever number is lower - for away fans.

Including hospitality, which is also selling well, St Mary's Stadium has a maximum capacity of 32,384 with no block closures. 

Saints are selling memberships at a discounted early bird price of £20, which will rise to £30 on Tuesday, July 16.

Ticket details for the first three home fixtures are expected to come next week - where the sales schedule will likely be revealed.

As part of the benefits package, members will also receive a £5 discount on tickets for all category 'C' Premier League fixtures.

The club states this is a saving of £30 over the course of the season, beating the membership price on early bird discount. 

In addition to ticket priority access and ticketing discounts, members get 10 per cent off retail products at selected points of the season.

They will also be eligible for a priority window to buy a 2025/26 season ticket, which is likely to be in hot demand once again. 

A club statement said: "We've simplified our approach to memberships based on fan feedback over the past few seasons.

"Rather than having different tiers, there will be one Saints membership tier for adults, and one junior membership for our younger fans to become a Saint.

"Buying a Saints membership opens up a whole host of benefits, including a priority window to purchase match tickets."
