Campaign to reduce cost to away fans

icon money10 April ~ Manchester City returned over 900 tickets ahead of their trip to Arsenal in January after ticket prices were set at £62 for visiting fans, bringing the high cost of attending football to national attention. The Football Supporters' Federation has now launched a petition aimed at letting clubs know the level of support for a curb on away ticket prices. Martin O'Hara, the federation's deputy chairman, notes that "football should not be a preserve of the wealthy. A maximum price of £20 would help clubs reconnect with the local communities from which they were born".
