Virgin Media has teamed up with the Football Supporters’ Federation to extend its Twenty’s Plenty campaign so that away fans from all Premier League clubs can benefit from £20 tickets to matches.
Virgin Media will reimburse the cost of supporters’ tickets above £20 for a single away fixture at all top-tier clubs – with the majority of matches held between April 15th and 23rd.
The initiative recognises the loyalty and commitment away fans show their club throughout the season and follows the Football Supporters’ Federation call to clubs to make ticket prices more affordable for visiting fans.
Brigitte Trafford of Virgin Media said: “We want to be part of a positive change for Premier League football fans across the country and are stepping up by subsidising away tickets to £20.
“Away fans are at the heart of the game and their tickets need to be affordable. Without them, the atmosphere in grounds is reduced and their teams don’t feel supported.”
Virgin Media, official shirt sponsor of Southampton FC, already subsidises visiting fans’ tickets to St Mary’s stadium to £20. The company is fighting for fans to enjoy all the football by making games cheaper for away fans – and by being the UK’s only pay TV provider to offer all the football on Sky Sports and BT Sports in one package.
As Premier League tickets are capped at £30, fans will receive up for a £10 reimbursement from Virgin Media following their teams match.
