Cap away ticket prices in the Premier League
This petition is to request a £30 cap on prices for away tickets in the Premier League.
Away support is one of the biggest contributors to a good atmosphere, without it there is no back and forth between the two sets of supporters. There's no question that more than half of the noise that the fans make is fed by the away support.
Recently Arsenal announced the prices for the visit of Manchester City; an extortionate £62. More than double what West Brom & Sunderland fans were charged. Add to this the cost of travel to London and you're talking over £200 for ONE game.
This and other prices are in danger of ruining the popularity of the premier league amongst local support, whilst removing the atmosphere at games.
We need to cap prices to keep the fans coming to games and I don't think £30 is an unreasonable price to ask.
We also need to be aware that this does not give clubs the right to increase home ticket prices to compensate, as that's just counter intuitive.
