QPR And Derby County In Ticket Price Row

    Derby County have asked the Football League to look into QPR’s raising of ticket prices for traveling fans in this Saturdays upcoming Championship match. All clubs had agreed ticket prices before the start of the season, Derby fans were to be charged £30 for seating in the upper tier and £20 the lower tier in the upcoming match, but QPR changed that to £40 and £30 quid not counting concessions. Home ticket prices were also increased to a maximum of £50 to the least expensive of £20. Derby County was angered by this sudden price increase, as are the fans of both Derby and QPR. When Derby County received the tickets and it showed the price increase, Derby County refused to have thier fans pay the increase and had no issue with QPR’s appeal to the Football League to try and force Derby fans to pay the ticket increase. To show the price difference QPR’s match against Blackpool, Upper Tier seating is only £30 and Lower Tier seating £20.

The QPR Trust, QPR1st Supporters Trust has backed the Derby fans and said. “We fully sympathise with the response of the Board of Directors of Derby Football Club who are acting in the interest of their supporters and will be writing to both the Chairman of Derby and the Chairman of Derby’s Supporters Trust (as well as the Football League) making our feelings known.” The Football League has yet to make a decision about the prices, a ruling is expected sometime this week. When the ruling comes down I will post it here.
