Queens Park Rangers Football Club have confirmed they will not be participating in a deal to cap the price of away match-day tickets when they face Ipswich Town in September.
Ipswich Town have led from the front with the initiative, which offers clubs the chance to take them up on an agreement to cap away ticket prices to £25 when they travel to Portman Road, in exchange for tickets of the same price when the Tractor Boys travel for the return fixture.
A number of other Championship clubs have expressed interest in the initiative, following the success of a similar scheme in the Premier League which caps away tickets to £30.
We approached QPR for their stance on the initiative, and the club has now confirmed to us that it will not be participating.
According to Lee Hoos, “the running costs of our stadium are substantially different than Ipswich and this price point simply doesn’t work.”
