FOLLOWING questions raised at the AGM regarding ticket prices for travelling supporters, Burton Albion would like to clarify the EFL rules for all fans.
Burton Albion supporters travelling to away grounds are subject to the home club’s ticket pricing policy but they cannot be charged more than home supporters for an equivalent standard seating area.
There may be cheaper areas of the respective grounds for home supporters at some clubs but that does not come into consideration – only the prices paid by home fans in comparative seating areas. This applies across all price categories.
The only exception to this is where home clubs are undertaking a ‘local promotion’ – which they can do up to four times a season. These promotions – such as ‘Kids for a Quid’ can but do not have to be extended to visiting fans.
Burton Albion cannot charge visiting fans more than home fans in a comparative area. Visiting fans will therefore pay £24 (seats) and £20 (standing) for adults at EFL Championship games this season – the same as Brewers supporters.
Other clubs in the EFL Championship can and do charge considerably more than Burton Albion but will not charge Burton Albion fans more than their own home supporters for an equivalent standard of seating.
Burton Albion fans are always best to buy away tickets in advance at www.burtonalbionfc.co.uk or from the club shop during opening hours as matchday ticket prices bought at the home ground can be more expensive.
