Arsenal have confirmed that away fans will pay just £26 for their tickets next season as price cuts are rolled out across the Premier League.
There was already an accord between clubs that no away ticket should cost more than £30, but Arsenal have discounted that price further for travelling Gooners who will pay £26 regardless of the opposition.
This comes after a £2.50 discount was applied for the last two seasons, but with ticket prices much higher and arbitrary throughout the league, this will have a much bigger impact on supporter’s wallets.
Club supporter liaison officer Mark Brindle said, “We are proud to be able to offer this further discount to our fantastic away fans for this coming season.
“We hope it will make things a little easier for them this season and they see some great games and plenty of Arsenal victories along the way.”
In the statement Arsenal have also confirmed a freeze on season ticket and general admission prices for the next two seasons.
Perhaps it shows the club are listening after provoking severe disenchantment last season with a surcharge on the tickets for the home clash with Barcelona in the Champions League. Ultimately they backed down from that decision after severe criticism, proving a significant victory for fans who showed their voices could be heard and listened to.
