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.

    It's ridiculous that Chelsea have to pay Category A prices to all away games - totally unfair and the club must do something to show they don't just view us fans as cash cows.

    There is so much money in football that it is unjustifiable to charge fans so much money to follow their team. I know of friends who have stopped attending matches because high prices coupled with saving for a house/car, having children etc is pricing them out of football.

    Recently paid surcharges of £13 for a £25 ticket at AFC Bournemouth made up of a £3 booking fee and £10.33p for a call to an 0844 No. Unacceptable

    With this new TV deal season tickets for loyal fans should be heavily subsidised. It only amounts to a small fraction of the clubs turnover and the fans are treated awfully.

    Hi, I believe that, this morning especially after yesterdays TV rights deal announcement, that you are holding football fans in contempt with the amount of money you are charging for football tickets. This should be the least you can do. Patrick Cunningham
