“We don’t take that for granted because what we have to be conscious of is what is affordable to people. You don’t want them to fall out of the love of football.

“We’ve established this year a fans’ forum so fans can discuss ticket prices for next year and we already have a number of supporter consultant groups that we discuss our pricing policy with before it goes forward for a recommendation.”
