Swans support new away ticket initiative
9th March 2016
Swansea City welcome today's announcement from the Premier League that away ticket prices will be capped at £30 for the next three seasons.
The Swans were one of the clubs pushing for the reduction after introducing its 'True to 22' initiative this season which subsidised the price of every ticket for all away league games through its Jack Army membership scheme.
It means no adult has to pay more than £22 for any away fixture this season, while concession prices were capped at a maximum of £15 and kids just £10*.
The club's subsidy is set to amount to a £300,000 saving for supporters by the end of the season.
Now this latest initiative by the Premier League has been welcomed by the club, with a spokesman stating: "We fully support this announcement.
"As a football club we have always tried to put supporters at the heart of everything we do and that was why we introduced our True to 22 scheme.
"We are very much a community club and we welcome any initiative that helps reduce the cost of watching the Swans at home and away.
"As one of the clubs that has to do the most travelling in the league, this ticket initiative can only benefit our supporters who have always travelled in impressive numbers to provide the team with loyal and passionate support.
"It also ensures that travelling fans of all clubs can benefit from a fair and consistent pricing policy, while maintaining the fantastic atmosphere that Premier League football brings.''
The club will set its away ticket prices in the summer, not exceeding the new £30 maximum.
