The Premier League today met a group of supporters who took part in a demonstration outside our offices.
It was a positive meeting in which we listened to the group and answered their questions. In the meeting we explained that keeping attendances high is our top priority and that encouraging the attendance of locally based supporters and incentivising away attendance are key parts of that.
While it is for individual clubs to set their ticket prices, we agreed with the group that we would further encourage stretch pricing at our clubs in order to make Premier League football available to a wide range of supporters.
We recognise the commitment of attending fans and look forward to further discussing the matters raised with the Football Supporters' Federation.
