Supporters of Premier League clubs have been given a boost after the league agreed to cap away ticket prices at £30 (US$43, €39) for the next three seasons.

A unanimous decision was made by all 20 Premier League clubs, leading the Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) to claim that the scheme will “make the difference between attending games and not attending games”.

In a statement, the Premier League said: “They [away supporters] have additional travel costs and pay individual match prices, as season ticket and other discounts are not available to them. Responsibility for them is shared between clubs and therefore it is right that there is a collective initiative to help them.”

The changes will come into effect from the start of the 2016/17, and come amid high profile protests from fans about ticket prices. In 2013, the FSF launched the ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ campaign, lobbying for £20 (US$28, €26) away tickets.

Although the figure agreed by the Premier League clubs is a slight increase on what was proposed, FSF chief executive Kevin Miles said he was ”delighted” with the announcement. Arsenal Football Club has reduced the price further to £26 (US$37, €34).

"A maximum price of £30 for away tickets will save a lot of fans a lot of money, and for many will make the difference between attending away games or not,” said Miles.

"We hope many clubs will also follow the example of Arsenal and reduce away ticket prices for their fans even further. The unanimous support of all top-flight clubs is welcome and shows the impact that the collective voice of fans can have."
