Swansea City To Subsidise Away Tickets Next Season
In a groundbreaking initiative, Premier League side Swansea City have announced that they will subsidise the price of every Barclays Premier League away ticket purchased through the Jack Army membership scheme for the upcoming season. In doing so, Swans fans will pay no more than £22 for an away ticket, with concession and child tickets costing a maximum of £15 and £10 respectively. This is fantastic news for the Premier League, and we can only hope that more sides take on this initiative to make tickets more affordable for fans across the country. Swansea's decision represents a coup for the FSF, who have campaigned for cheaper ticket prices for a number of years. The “Twenty’s Plenty for Away Fans” initiative called for clubs to cap away tickets at 20 pounds, and though Swansea's cap is at £22, it is still a very important step in the right direction. The new TV deal has given an opportunity for clubs to reduce ticket prices and make the game affordable for all, and Swansea have seized this opportunity.
