Premier League clubs AGREE to stick with the £30 price cap on away tickets until 2025 and introduce new measures to enhance fan activity and engagement across the league

  • Travelling fans will continue to pay £30 or less for a Premier League away match
  • Clubs unanimously agreed to keep the price cap for the next three seasons
  • It was first introduced in 2016-17 and will next be reviewed by the league in 2025
  • Clubs were in support of all Premier League teams having a Fan Advisory Board
  • A new Fan Engagement Standard has been introduced to enhance fan activity 

Fans will continue to pay no more than £30 for tickets to Premier League away matches, after all top flight clubs in England agreed to maintain the current cap for the next three years.

The £30 ticket limit was first introduced in 2016-17 by the Premier League Away Supporters’ Initiative and will be next reviewed in 2025, following unanimous agreement amongst clubs.

The price cap will now also be included in the Premier League Rules for the first time.

Furthermore, the top flight clubs approved a fresh action plan designed to better the Premier League’s collective offer to fans.

The proposal will lead to the introduction of Fan Advisory Boards within every Premier League outfit, with a nominated Board-level official taking holistic responsibility for the club’s fan engagement. 

A new Fan Engagement Standard was also backed by the panel, in the hope that the initiative will strengthen fan activity and tighten the link between supporters and their football clubs.

‘Fans are the lifeblood of the game and are essential to their clubs,’ the Premier League wrote on the website on Thursday.

The new Fan Engagement Standard is designed to tighten the bond between fans and clubs

‘These new standards will ensure long-term meaningful engagement with supporters.

‘All clubs recognise the crucial importance of supporters in generating the best possible atmosphere at matches and acknowledge the additional travel costs often involved when following a team away from home.

‘The Premier League will now continue to consult with clubs and the Football Supporters’ Association to finalise the Fan Engagement Standard framework, with the aim of its introduction next season.’
