Lee Hoos fears Championship clubs will continue to charge what they want for away tickets - despite a groundbreaking Premier League initiative to cap tickets at £30 for the next three seasons.

The QPR chief executive was responding to hope voiced by Rs supporters at a recent fans forum the new top-flight agreement would filter down the leagues.

Hoos thinks it’s unlikely - and explained why.

“The Premier League can afford to do it," he said. "The further you go down (the leagues) the more important the (gate) revenue is. The Premier League supplement income through broadcasting rights.

“I like the idea of capping the season ticket price, and Twenty is Plenty looks right rather than free coaches, for example, so everyone can buy into it.

“But capping away tickets? That’s a Premier League dream right now.”

There is plenty of evidence that some Championship clubs charge over £30 to away fans this season.

In fact, tonight’s full price at Leeds United with cash on the door is an eye-watering £40 for adults, according to Rs official website.

Bristol City fans complained they were charged £39 for a full price ticket at Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the season, and others too have invited criticism they milk away supporters, despite generous concessions to their own fans.
