Premier League official announcement confirms upper limit on away ticket prices until 2022
Premier League away ticket prices have had an upper price limit of £30 these past three years.
The clubs agreeing to this small concession to supporters as they were worried about a decline in away fans affecting their ‘product’ when trying to sell it around the world.
The bottom line is that empty seats are bad news when it comes to selling it to a TV audience.
The £30 cap ends in May and Premier League clubs have discussed the issue, amongst others, on Thursday.
Claiming it was a unanimous decision, the Premier League say that the £30 cap on away tickets will now be extended until 2022.
A small but welcome decision for fans, even though they will still be expected to go to Tottenham for a Saturday lunchtime kick-off or Wolves away on a Monday night.
With the fortunes flowing into the game thanks to the spectacle the fans are key to producing, it is the very least they could do.
Premier League Official Announcement:
‘Premier League clubs have today unanimously agreed to continue the £30 cap on away ticket prices for the next three seasons.
All clubs know the crucial importance of away fans in generating the best possible atmosphere at matches and recognise the additional travel costs often involved when following a team away from home.
The £30 away ticket cap was introduced in the 2016/17 season after the successful implementation of the Premier League Away Supporters’ Initiative, where clubs provided a range of measures for their away fans.
For the last four consecutive seasons, Premier League crowds have reached record levels with 96 per cent of tickets sold.
This is testament to the compelling football and dedication of fans, and the League is committed to maintaining these high attendances.’
