Stoke City welcome ticket price cap

Premier League clubs have unanimously approved a ticket price cap for away fans.

An emergency meeting has been held after clubs agreed last month that more should be done to help away fans.

After consideration of a range of options, they have now decided to introduce the new £30 maximum price for away tickets for the next three seasons.

Stoke City Chief Executive Tony Scholes told the club's official website: "As a Club we have long held the belief that away fans are of fundamental importance to Premier League games as they help generate atmosphere and add to the spectacle. 

"However, these supporters pay a disproportionately high cost to follow their team in terms of match tickets and travel and we are delighted the £30 initiative has been adopted."
