QPR and Bolton fans to take part in protest

QPR and Bolton supporters will come together for a protest before today’s game at Loftus Road behind a banner calling for lower football ticket prices.

They will be supporting the Football Supporters’ Federation ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ weekend of action calling for lower ticket prices across the country.

Fans will gather behind the banner on South Africa Road outside the ground around from around 2.15pm.

Banners will be on display at all Premier League and most Championship games this weekend.

A spokesperson for the QPR1st Supporters’ Trust said: “Over the past 25 years money has flowed into football, enriching players, many owners, executives and agents – we think it’s about time fans saw some of the benefits too.

“Twenty’s Plenty for Away Tickets aims to reduce costs for travelling supporters, in order to make football more affordable and acknowledge the huge, positive impact away fans have on the game.

“We think home tickets are often too expensive as well, but the current focus is on away tickets as there is currently more chance of league-wide action on this.”
