Thread: Away match prices

  1. Default Away match prices

    Another board has a thread about Sheffield Wednesday potential ticket price saying could be as much as £42, I know we are expensive and charge away fans up to £35 in this league (someone may know exact amount) and we also only take £2 off for some awful restricted views but £42? The game has gone mad if that's the case for 2nd tier football, I went to a handful of away games last season and they were all around £25, some away grounds had really good facilities with my favorites being Newcastle and Fulham. Anyone pay a high away ticket price last season?

    been their many times in years past even got thrown out when away fans shared the same cafe/restaurant with home fans for slinging a fat bully , but no way would i pay that unless it was a play off game or semi final of a cup

    All championship fans should totally boycott any away game that costs over £25..... no point moaning/grumbling - just don't go. I reckon such action would cost Wednesday (and others probably) well over £half-a-million over the season and would soon bring them to heel.

    I've heard we're a category A game, and it'll be £49. #### take if true.

    Off the scale if £49, it's Sheffield Wednesday or man utd.

    Not going is the only way to stop this rip off but it requires everybody to swerve it to have desired effect. Our prices can be high but Sheffield Wednesday have performed a miracle if they get money like that out of yorkshiremen.

    I've already booked trains for that so will stump up whatever they charge, but £42 is a joke if true. Should never be more than £25 IMHO.
    You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    It's a game I'm able to go to and also want to so will more than likely go despite price. As said earlier though the only way to stop it is not to go.

    Im driving up to away games this season, but I refuse to pay that much for a match ticket. Unreal.

    There is your problem. People will stump up regardless. Blind loyalty.

    Respect to you guys but I'm nobodies mug.

    Ipswich have made contact with all the clubs saying we will sell tickets for £25 for away fans if the other club agrees. Sheff Wed have turned it down so Ipswich will be charging Wednesday fans whatever they are charged.

    thats a brilliant idea from ipswich and i hope other clubs jump on board. the whole away day is expensive enough as it is, its the families that i feel most sorry for, going to shef wesnesday away must cost at least 200 quid for a family of 4 when you factor in ticket prices and train tickets
