Championship - QPR fans hit out at 40 per cent price hike

Post  1892NUFF on Thu May 26, 2011 10:04 pm


QPR fans have reacted angrily after learning they will be charged up to £72 to watch their team in the Premier League next season.

Club owners Flavio Briatore, Bernie Ecclestone and Lakshmi Mittal are cashing in on the club's promotion back to the top flight by hiking the prices of both matchday and season tickets.

The cheapest tickets will be £47 while season tickets are up by almost 40 per cent from last term, although with four home games less in the Premier League compared to the Championship, the increase is even more in real terms.

The price rises were widely predicted but have still been met with dismay by many Rangers fans.

"It's an absolute disgrace and, yet again, underlines the total contempt the owners of QPR have for the fans," said Paul Finney of the Independent R's website.

"Flavio Briatore's dream is a 'boutique' club, which has an exclusive feel to it and is the place for wealthy people to be seen.

"Not only is that a slap in the face of QPR supporters, it is not in the long-term interests of a club that has two other Premier League clubs (Chelsea and Fulham) on its doorstep."
