EFL fans refusing season-ticket refunds with supporters choosing to back their teams financially in a bid to help them survive the pandemic
- Football League clubs have been hit hard by fans not being able to attend games
- Clubs in Leagues One and Two have mostly benefitted from fans generosity

A staggering number of supporters in the EFL are refusing to ask for season-ticket refunds — in a bid to help their clubs survive the pandemic.
Sportsmail has heard from a number of teams where more than 95 per cent of the fanbase have told them to keep the money despite, for the most part, being unable to attend matches.
