Club CEO Rob Couhig moved quickly to allay criticism of the prices rises and restricted refunds for Season Tickets for the 2020/21 season. Firstly commenting on the large increase for junior tickets Couhig said: “No longer are we willing to offer free tickets to children, or any fan for that matter. I don’t know of any organisation in the entertainment or leisure industries that welcomes children for free. How can you teach anyone the value of a ticket to an experience if that ticket has no price attached to it?” However, Couhig accepted the price was too high and the increase would now be from £90 to £95, rather than £190, with refunds made to anybody who had already purchased. It was also agreed that pro-rata rebates would be offered for games played behind closed doors in addition to access to viewing all home games via the iFollow streaming service.

These prices remain consistent regardless of which division the club will be in next season."

Wycombe Wanderers CEO Rob Couhig published a statement on 18th June 2020 where he outlined his thoughts ahead of releasing Season Ticket details for the 2020/21 season. He said: “We needed to make a realistic plan for the coming year. Of course, this was complicated by the fact that the present season has not concluded, there is uncertainty over which league in which we will play (although I have a belief as to which one!).” The comments come as suggestions that the new season will start in September and is likely to be behind closed doors but with contingency to limit a 'socially distanced' crowd to Season Ticket holders only capped at 25% of capacity of Adams Park.

Gareth Ainsworth defended Wycombe’s chance to compete in the play-offs after his team finished 3rd in the table on PPG. Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said: "We don't feel 'lucky'. We still feel we had a chance of automatic promotion if the season continued." The response follows other media outlets, close to clubs who didn’t achieve enough points during the season to qualify on PPG, going into a tail-spin over Wycombe Wanderers’ wrongly perceived actions of voting to curtial the season. The Wanderers boss added: "We didn't lobby for PPG because we knew it would favour us and wouldn't have looked right."
