Queens Park Rangers Supporters Call For Ticket Price Cut After Relegation
April 30, 2013
An EPL Queens Park Rangers supporters' group "has called on the club to reduce season ticket prices" following its relegation to the League Championship, according to the London EVENING STANDARD. Despite two years of huge investment, QPR was "relegated from the Premier League." The west London club, which "earned promotion to the top flight two years ago, will next year be playing at places like Turf Moor and Portman Road rather than Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge, and supporters feel that should be reflected in season ticket prices." Rangers' current ticket prices span from £499-949 ($772-1,500) whereas its Championship neighbors in London like Millwall charge just £249 ($385) for its cheapest season ticket. Group Chair Stephen Dedridge said, "If we were paying what we are now we would be paying over the odds so we would like a reduction" (EVENING STANDARD, 4/29).
