THFC today announced its intention to freeze the price of Season Tickets and match day tickets for the 2015/16 season, and to freeze the price of junior and senior citizen Season Tickets for the next two seasons. While THST has consistently argued that ticket prices are too high, we welcome the Club’s decision not to increase prices next year. We are also encouraged by the decisions to freeze junior and senior citizen ST prices for two years, and to continue the policy of pricing cup games at a more accessible level.
We acknowledge the business realities facing all clubs. However, our role is to speak for the fans, and we will be consulting the supporters of THFC closely to gauge their reaction to today’s news.
We will also continue our efforts, alongside supporter groups from other Premier League clubs, to secure action from clubs across the board to reduce ticket prices. The reality is that no club is going to unilaterally reduce prices, so we need to work together to achieve agreement across the Premier League clubs for a more progressive pricing policy. We believe there is a role for the Premier League and the FA to play here too, one that could restore some faith in those bodies’ willingness and ability to govern.
We will be consulting colleagues at other Premier League Trusts to determine the best way of taking forward the campaign to secure across-the-board action on ticket prices.
