Virgin Media have launched a massive new campaign as part of the ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ initiative in which they’ve subsidised 20 away game tickets to £20.
- Premier League away tickets are currently subsidised at £30 for the next 3 seasons
Starting today (7 April 2017), away fans can now claim money back on their away day match tickets if they cost over £20.
Southampton’s official sponsors have teamed up with the Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) in order to reimburse ticket prices for the majority of games set to take place between 15 and 23 April.
This is a pioneering campaign and part of a larger project already started at Southampton, whose tickets are already subsidised at £20 by Virgin and the club.
Each club will have one away match subsidised with Arsenal’s being against Middlesbrough on 17 April.
“We want to be part of a positive change for Premier League football fans across the country and are stepping up by subsidising away tickets to £20,” said Kerris Bright, Chief Marketing Officer of Virgin Media.
“This is our way of making the brand stand out from our competitors, where we’re firmly putting fans at the heart of the game and getting behind the issues they care about.
“We want supporters to see the positive impact Virgin Media is having in football and what we can offer them.”
Kevin Miles, Chief Executive of the FSF, said: “The Football Supporters’ Federation has a long-standing rally cry – Twenty’s Plenty for Away Tickets.
“We’re delighted that Virgin Media has helped make that a reality at many upcoming top-flight games.
“Thanks to this Twenty’s Plenty deal, tens of thousands of top-flight fans could potentially save hundreds of thousands of pounds in the coming weeks. It’s a great idea.”
