Albion back away ticket price cap

Away ticket ceiling pegged at £30

ALBION welcomed the news of the Premier League’s decision to place a £30 ceiling on the cost of away tickets for their travelling fans.

The top flight's 20 clubs have "unanimously agreed" that more should be done to help away fans.

The £30 away ticket cap will be introduced from next season.

In a statement, the Premier League said away fans were "essential for match atmosphere" and helped make the league unique.

And that was a point not lost on The Hawthorns where Chief Executive Mark Jenkins said: “This is a decision which had the full support of West Bromwich Albion. Clearly the overall cost of watching away football is a major issue for the game and this will be welcomed by all of our travelling supporters.

“Only recently, they gave us magnificent backing over four successive away games which involved travelling more than 1,000 miles. The game would be much the poorer without this kind of devotion.

“At West Bromwich Albion, we are mindful of the burden on the fans’ pockets and pleased that we continue to figure prominently as one of the most cost-friendly clubs in the Premier League. This is something we intend to maintain.”
