English football fans can celebrate a victory today after the Premier League announced that they would be capping the price of away tickets at £30 for the next three years.
Fans have been protesting for a bit of respect to how much they contribute to the beautiful games in a movement that could be summed up by the banner: Football without fans is nothing.
After an extraordinary big-money television deal was agreed upon last year fans became incensed at how little clubs cared about the supporters who made their empires what they were.
The BBC reported that the 20 current Premier League clubs unanimously agreed to cap away ticket prices at £30, taking into account the extra costs involved when fans travel to games.
Arsenal went one step better for fans and agreed to cap away tickets at £26. Fan groups around the country and Football Supporters’ Federation agreed that this was a step in the right direction. Now if clubs would agree to lower the price of their home tickets we could commend them even further.
