NUFC Looking To Strike A Deal

Following on from a similar deal that a few clubs grasped last season and being the originator of the idea, Newcastle United has managed to start doing the same again this time round with Southampton announced as the first.

The deal in question is reciprocal pricing for tickets in which the two clubs that face each other home and away would set the away ticket price to be the same for both sets of fans.

Newcastle wanting guarantees from clubs that we will set our price for away fans lower if the opposition club does the same. In this instance the adult price is set at a respectable 25 and the concession price at a bargain 5.

Bearing in mind the mammoth journey that both Newcastle and Southampton fans will have to make for the away game, this sort of thing can only be applauded.

The fact that the likes of West Brom and Swansea did it last year should lead to them doing it again and with journeys to most Premier league sides beign far away, this is one of the main issues of an away fan apart from the normal club moans.

This announcement coincides with a march taking place in London tomorrow by fans who say that 20 is a fair price to pay for away games. Twentys Plenty.

The march organised by the Football Supporters` Federation (FSF)wants a cap introduced.
