Reading, Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town And Blackburn Rovers Come To Agreement Over Championship Ticket Price

Reading has offered to make tickets for visiting fans worth just £20 for the tournament this season, as long as other clubs pledge to do the same.

Football ticket prices, along with other sports, are often criticized for being too high and making it increasingly difficult for new fans to enjoy the sport, and for the elderly.

With the UK in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis, it is difficult for people to participate in sporting events, as they have to sacrifice things in life.

Reading has now come up with the idea to charge fans only £20, as long as fans from other clubs agree to charge the same price only from their fans.

“This season, our consistent stance on Twenty’s Plenty is firmly focused on opposing clubs,” the club explained in a statement on their website.

“Since 2016, we have defended Twenty’s Plenty. However, despite our best efforts, very few other clubs in the tournament have followed the same approach in their pricing strategy.

“This has resulted in our traveling fans routinely paying upwards of £20 for the privilege of watching the Royal Family on the road, while all hostile club fans have paid £20 or less to follow their team to Select Car Leasing.

“For clarity, clubs are only allowed to charge fans at the equivalent rate they charge their fans in a similar section of their stadium. So by keeping today’s ticket prices very low in Reading, we have also committed to keeping prices for visiting fans at the same level.

“In 2022-23, match-day ticket prices for adults will, in some sections, rise a little above the £20 mark – which means we will now be allowed to set the equivalent price for distant fans.

“However, each club in the tournament will be given the opportunity to give away £20 tickets to their fans when their team visits RG2…but only if they commit in advance to a mutual arrangement for our loyal fans in the reverse match.

“And this is the message we sent to all 23 clubs in the division…”

Berkshire FC have confirmed that Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers have so far agreed to accept the offer.

The hope would certainly be that other teams would follow suit, and could come under pressure from their fans if not and have to spend more to visit the former Premier League team.

Reading fans will surely hope to see an improvement in their squad next season, as they might argue that the latest campaign wasn’t even worth spending £20 on.

If Derby County points had not been deducted, the royals would have gone down instead of the Rams, even if their point deduction had not happened either.

Next season, their fans will be watching the newly stricken clubs Burnley, Norwich City and Watford, although Norwich will likely be a one-off event, until at least 2024/25…
