Thousands of fans are eagerly awaiting to get back to the Racecourse Ground after been prevented from doing so due to the pandemic.
A huge number opted to going online or queuing up to bag their golden ticket as they really hope this is the season they finally end to getting promotion back to League Two.
SEASON TICKETS | Club temporarily cap sales following unprecedented demand

Some fans reportedly waited in line overnight at the stadium to make sure they didn’t miss out on the Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds era.
The club – and the town – have been making headlines worldwide, getting a mention on BBC One’s ‘The One Show’ earlier this week, when Ryan Reynolds spoke to co-hosts Alex Jones and Ronan Keating about his Wrexham plans and how passionately he and McElhenney feel about the club and the community.
He said: “We’re very very excited – the Wrexham club is incredible. More incredible still is the community around it.
“This is as much a project investing in the Wrexham red dragons as it is investing in the Wrexham community itself so we’re really excited.”
Jones then replied by saying that the takeover of the club was ‘weird’ but that ‘she was chuffed it was happening’ in Wales.
Reynolds added: “I think once people get to know Wrexham a little bit better they’re going to see how it’s not weird at all. It’s spot on.”

Thank you to all Wrexham AFC supporters who have purchased their 2021/22 season tickets online or in person.
We have had an unprecedented demand for tickets, with more than 5,000 season tickets sold so far – of which more than 2,000 were renewals from the 2019/20 season.
As previously announced, the WREXRENT Stand will be closed for the first two matches of the season, against Yeovil Town and Notts County, due to the ongoing refurbishment work on the concourse.
As a result – and in order to ensure all season ticket holders are guaranteed seats at the first two games, providing we open without any other restrictions – we have taken the decision to temporarily cap the number of available season tickets at 5,200.
Season ticket sales have now been paused. Remaining tickets will be released back into general sale on Saturday morning (August 7) at 9am until we reach 5,200 and available on-line only. You can find full information on how to register your account and buy your tickets, and answers to frequently asked questions, by selecting the relevant link.
Everyone involved at the Football Club is looking forward to welcoming supporters back to the Racecourse Ground for the start of the Vanarama National League season.
Match-day ticket information will be confirmed in due course. As stated here, our normal approach this season will be to offer match-day ticket sales 12 days before each game, with a five-day priority window for members that will apply from the Woking game on the 11th September.
Season Tickets will go back on sale and will be valid for the Woking game at a date to be announced in the future. The prices will be reduced accordingly.
We are sorry that we aren’t going to be able to meet demand for the first two games of the season or offer tickets for sale on a match-by-match basis, but it is unavoidable in the circumstances. Both games will now be designated as ‘All-Ticket’.
