Ligue One Away Tickets Capped At €10 For Next Season

Ligue One Away Tickets Capped At €10 For Next Season

In a thoroughly brilliant gesture, LFP chiefs have capped all Ligue One away tickets at €10 for next season.

Following a meeting between key figures within French football on Wednesday, the decision was made to ensure supporters would only have to pay a maximum of a tenner to watch their team play away from home in the French top flight.

What's more, those who follow teams in Ligue 2 will have to pay just €5 for away tickets - which is very good value for football in the second tier.

Often working class fans can be priced out of seeing their team when you combine the cost of ticket and travel but fair play to the LFP for showing they care about supporters.

In 2016, after a number of protests, including the Football Supporters' Federation launched the Twenty's Plenty campaign, the Premier League elected to introduce a £30 cap on away tickets - which has since been extended for another three years following a meeting between all 20 clubs in February.

More recently, in Switzerland FC Basel fans are taking a stand over what they believe are extortionate ticket prices for their upcoming cup final against FC Thun.

Supporters have offered a take it or leave it ultimatum to the Swiss FA for the showpiece on Sunday, with the club yet to buy any tickets for the game in Bern.

With the cheapest ticket set at £38, instead Basel are selling half-price tickets at £19 and plan to walk to the stadium before offering the Swiss FA the funds they have raised.
