Premier League announces away tickets cap….

Football supporters have staged a number of protests against ticket pricing in recent months

Premier League clubs have agreed to limit away ticket prices to a maximum of £30 for the next three seasons. The clubs announced the new deal on Wednesday after unanimously agreeing to the new price cap at their last meeting in February. The new initiative comes after a number of high profile protests against ticket prices in the Premier League. The league has enjoyed a record average attendance of 96.2 per cent this season but a number of supporter groups have raised concerns about increasing prices, particularly for away supporters. The away ticket cap replaces the existing Away Supporters Initiative – a set of travel and ticket subsidies originally introduced by clubs in 2013. The new cap is set to run for three years and will apply from the start of next season to the end of the 2018/19 season.
