Fans Zone was delighted to hear that the UK Minister for Sport has given her backing to the Twenty’s Plenty campaign. If the campaign to limit away ticket prices to £20 is going to succeed, it needs backing from high profile figures, so the public support of Tracey Crouch MP is an important step towards making this a reality.
The minister’s quotes in parliament were as follows:
“I have raised the issue of costs to supporters with the football authorities but it is important to remember this is a matter for individual clubs.”
“However I am pleased to hear of some excellent examples of clubs reducing ticket prices such as Coventry City and Doncaster Rovers – in line with the Football Supporters’ Federation ‘Twenty Plenty’ campaign, and that Premier League clubs are also considering an extension of the Away Supporters’ Initiative.”
Hopefully this is a further step towards making affordable ticket prices a reality for all supporters.
