UEFA cap on away fan prices ‘progress’ says FSE

UEFA today announced a price cap for away ticket prices for its competitions – €70 in the Champions League, and €45 in the Europa League – which will take immediate effect. 

Football Supporters Europe (FSE), the pan-European body that works on behalf of fans, and of which the FSA is a founder-member, called the move ‘progress’.

In a statement FSE said: “FSE have consistently lobbied for such policies, working with national and club-based supporters’ organisations to collect hard, reliable data and develop practical proposals. During the same period, FSE have worked closely with UEFA to ensure these proposals informed the debate and influenced key stakeholders.”

FSE welcomed the announcement, with their executive director Ronan Evain adding: “This represents progress, and we commend UEFA for their forward thinking. The cap will eliminate the most egregious cases of overpricing, but it is, in our opinion, still too high

“Thankfully, the impact of the new regulation will be reviewed at the end of the season, and as such, we will focus our efforts on lobbying the relevant parties to lower it”

Data collected by FSE shows that 12.5% of away tickets exceeded the level of the cap during the 2018/19 season.
