Twenty’s Plenty Gets Government Backing

by Fans Zone on

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.
