Premier League clubs have agreed to the continuation of a £30 price cap on tickets for away fans.
Acknowledging the importance of travelling supporters to the overall atmosphere of matches and recognising the additional costs involved in following matches up and down the country (and the dicking about they agree to on the scheduling front), they’ve extended the cap, which was first introduced ahead of the 2016/17 season, until the end of 2021-22.
After the news was confirmed, Arsenal confirmed that their additional £4 discount, which has been in place for four years, will also continue. We’ve done the maths and that makes tickets *checks calculator* £26.
Speaking about the decision, managing director, Vinai Venkatesham said: “We have fantastic support at all our away matches in the Premier League. Our travelling fans invest significant time and money following the team.
“The additional £4 discount will ensure no Arsenal fan will pay more to support us at Premier League away games than the lowest priced £26 ticket that both visiting and home fans can pay to watch their teams at Emirates Stadium.”
