Dundee United fans are backing their team in greater numbers ahead of the new season, despite not actually being able to attend matches.
The Tangerines have issued a huge thank you to supporters after they smashed through the 4,000-season ticket barrier.
The rush to get behind the Tangerines as they make their long-awaited return to the Premiership has seen the club sell more season books than they had by the same time last year.
That is despite the top-flight campaign kicking off behind closed-doors because of the coronavirus pandemic, with no spectators initially allowed into Tannadice due to social distancing restrictions.
Instead, season ticket holders will be able to see United’s home matches broadcast live online on Club TV as a free add-on.
That has seen a surge in sales this week but those who haven’t purchased yet are being warned that the club’s Early Bird offer ends on Sunday.
Robbie Neilson’s men return to pre-season training on Monday morning and they will do so in the knowledge that the fans are buying into their Premiership comeback.
United’s players will not be using their usual St Andrews base because of the lockdown but instead will report to Tannadice.
