OXFORD United have extended the deadline for season ticket renewals by 48 hours.

Supporters initially had until 3pm today to secure their 2021/22 seat for next season.

But the U’s have extended the deadline to 3pm on Wednesday, citing the bank holiday weekend as the reason.

It means season tickets will go on general sale at 1pm on Thursday, 48 hours later than planned.

United revealed on May 25 that more than 2,000 supporters had renewed for 2022/23, but they have not provided a further update since then.

Managing director Niall McWilliams previously said he was targeting a record number of season tickets next term.

It comes after United achieved an average league attendance of 8,463 in 2021/22, a record for the Kassam Stadium.

“Our aim next season is to get a record number of season tickets. That’s our ambition and we’re determined to make that,” McWilliams told the Oxford Mail last month.

“This year we got just under 4,600, so I’d be very disappointed if we don’t get over 5,000.

“In an ideal world I’d like it to be 5,500."
