The Twenty's Plenty petition is now closed, although FSF campaigns around ticket prices are still ongoing.

What is Twenty's Plenty? A call upon football clubs at all levels of the game to recognise and reward the amazing contribution of away fans by getting together to agree an across the board price cap on away match tickets of £20 (£15 for concessions). Prices are too high and they often hit travelling fans hardest - we want to fix that.

What did the Twenty's Plenty petition achieve? The key idea behind the FSF’s Twenty’s Plenty petition was that clubs should offer away fans cheaper deals on a reciprocal basis, preferably for £20 or less. This idea was used by nine clubs during 2013/14 saving 31,807 fans a total of £342,260. That number will surpass £500,000 during 2014/15.

In addition it created a campaigning environment in which the Premier League saw fit to introduce the £12m Away Fans Initative. This equates to £200,000 per club, per season and is budgeted money which must be spent on away supporters. The best deals reduced ticket prices on the gate, while others offered free coach travel. 

Perhaps as importantly the petition really pushed the issue of ticket prices up the agenda. Five or six years ago, very few in the game cared about the issue; nowadays it's widely recognised as an issue by ex-pros, high-profile journalists, and politicians.

Can I do more? Yes! The FSF will lead a demonstration of fans at the next meeting of the Premier League shareholders held in central London on Thursday 26th March (time TBC). This is a vital protest for fans from ALL leagues; we want to see you there regardless of the club you support.

Also sign our new #ShareTVWealth petition - this triggers an email to them and the relevant league outlining your support for lower prices/redistribution of TV wealth throughout the pyramid. It's a vital step in this campaign as the PL and FL always insist that clubs hold the power.

    Just watched MOTD and seen every ground with seats empty, who at these clubs see the current abuse of fans loyalty as sustainable?

    I think all fans, no matter which club, should be allowed to enjoy away matches. A rich club doesn't mean rich fans. Don't penalise the fans for a club's success. It's for the love of the game.

    I watch the game with interest and admire the efforts of FSF to maintain some sort of common sense in a sport which is more and more dominated by the needs of sponsors and the TV stations. I was staggered to find out recently the huge sums paid to executives and ambassadors such as Alex Ferguson circa £2m per annum - all at the same time as many other lowlier staff at clubs are on zero hour contracts, and pittance wages. Many supporters have a social conscience and perhaps one way would be for FSF to develop a 'spontaneous' football chant or chants about the pay level of the lowest paid workers in these very rich clubs - comparing this with the huge sums to those in clubs who exploit fans and low paid workers. Could constant public embarrassment at games work? How could this be encouraged and stimulated? How about FSF becoming an effective agent for change on this issue? I look forward to your response
