QPR slash ticket prices

The move comes less than a week after Tony Fernandes’ takeover and

follows criticism from supporters of the price hike that

accompanied their promotion to the Premier League. The size of the

refunds has yet to be confirmed, but the club revealed it would

write to season ticket holders individually about the refund

process. Chief executive Philip Beard, who was appointed two days

ago, told the club’s official website: “These changes show how

serious we are about taking the fans’ views on board.” He added:

“Ticket prices are imperative to the business structure and we are

confident our supporters will react positively to the news and help

make Loftus Road a fortress on matchdays.” Beard also announced the

club would reduce matchday ticket prices, introducing a third

pricing category and letting children under eight attend home

fixtures for free in specified areas of Loftus Road, provided they

were accompanied by a full paying adult. Prices for category A

games, which will include the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea

and Arsenal, will range from £45-£70, category B games

from £35-£60 and category C from £25-£50. The

lowest ticket price before the reductions had been £35.
