Bluebirds accept request to reciprocate our £20 price cap for away fans!Last month we led the way in the Sky Bet Championship by agreeing that ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ for away fans in 2016-17.
As a club, we listened to a nationwide supporter appeal, led by the Football Supporters' Federation, designed to limit adult away ticket prices at stadia across the country…next season travelling adult fans, who are Season Ticket holders or Members at their respective clubs, will be able to come and watch their team take on Jaap Stam’s Royals for just £20!
And in announcing the pioneering move to support the Twenty’s Plenty campaign, we openly stated that our ultimate aim was to encourage other clubs to follow suit and help to arrange reciprocal pricing structures for our travelling fans this season and beyond.
As a club, we contacted a number of our counterparts at clubs up and down the country and we are delighted to announce that Cardiff City have become the first to agree to a ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ price cap in return.
We hoped ours would be a structure other clubs would admire and adopt and we would like to applaud Cardiff for their reciprocal ticket price cap – a move which will mean Royals fans will be able to enjoy affordable football in the Welsh capital when we take on City at the end of August.
We will continue to request reciprocal pricing arrangements at clubs our fans will visit throughout the 2016-17 campaign. We regard this as another step in the right direction.
Tickets for this game are due to go on sale next week, so we look forward to our supporters enjoying affordable football in the Welsh capital at the end of August!
