THE PREMIER LEAGUE has announced that away fans will pay a maximum of £30 for tickets for the next three seasons.

All 20 members of England’s top flight met in February to discuss ticketing pricing and it was agreed that the cap would be introduced to assist those supporters who regularly make expensive trips around the country to follow their team.

“Clubs know that away fans have a unique status,” the statement reads.

“They are essential for match atmosphere and stimulate the response from home fans that distinguishes Barclays Premier League matches from those of other leagues.

“This unique status has long been understood by Clubs, who currently provide away fans with a range of measures designed to assist them, including the Away Supporters’ Initiative (ASI), introduced in 2013.

“Away fans have additional travel costs and pay individual match prices, as season ticket and other discounts are not available to them and the responsibility for them is shared between Clubs and therefore it is right that there is a collective initiative to help them.”

The news comes after a number of recent protests including a walk-out by Liverpool fans on the 77th minute during their 2-2 draw with Sunderland last month.
