Premier League clubs cap away tickets at £30

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Premier League clubs have agreed to cap away ticket prices at £30 for the next three seasons.

Running from the 2016/17 the £30 cap on all away tickets will replace the Away Supporters’ Initiative as a “single, League-wide recognition of the importance of away fans,” a Premier League statment said today.

“They [away supporters] have additional travel costs and pay individual match prices, as season ticket and other discounts are not available to them,” the statement said.

“Responsibility for them is shared between Clubs and therefore it is right that there is a collective initiative to help them.”

Since 2013, supporter organisations across the country have been campainging for cheaper away ticket prices under the banner of “Twenty’s Plenty”.

Fans have shown their support for the popular Twenty’s Plenty since its inception by continually lobbying their clubs – most notably in the national weekend of action in October. 

Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters’ Federation, said:

“The FSF is delighted with the announcement of a £30 cap – the FSF has campaigned around the issue of ticket prices along with supporter groups around the country and we’re very pleased the voice of fans has been listened to.

“A maximum price of £30 for away tickets will save a lot of fans a lot of money, and for many will make the difference between attending away games or not.

“We hope many clubs will also follow the example of Arsenal and reduce away ticket prices for their fans even further.

“The unanimous support of all top-flight clubs is welcome and shows the impact that the collective voice of fans can have.”
