Fulham fans will reportedly protest against the club’s ticket pricing policy before the Manchester United game at Craven Cottage next month.
The Fulham Supporters Trust (FST) have announced they will protest over ticket prices ahead of the Premier League fixture against United on November 4.
The group are unhappy with a price increase for the same fixture from last season and will express their disapproval at the home venue.
They plan to march together to Craven Cottage ahead of the match and yellow cards will be shown in the 18th minute of the game, with the time selected to reflect the percentage increase.
FST’s statement read: “We believe that now is the time for all sections of our Fulham family to come together again to make sure that future generations of Fulham fans can create and experience their own highs (and lows) at Craven Cottage.
“The problem is a completely misguided ticket pricing policy that fundamentally misunderstands what it means to be a fan.
“It’s a policy which, piece by piece, is alienating a large part of our core fan base to the extent that increasing numbers just can’t afford to come to a game or bring their friends and family to help create that next generation.
“We call on all Fulham fans to join us in delivering a clear, peaceful but loud message that these prices must be brought down and that ticketing policy must focus on ensuring real Fulham fans can afford both to attend and to encourage the next generation to attend.”
The highest-price adult ticket for the upcoming game against Manchester United has now reached £160 for the new Riverside Stand – a 60 percent increase from last season for the same fixture.
Prices for most of the seats in the Hammersmith End have increased 18% since last term and a whopping 40% since 2019.
FST claim the cost for a family of four to sit in the Hammersmith End in the match against Sheffield United last week was from £172 to £212.
After a 10th-place finish last term, Fulham are on course for another good campaign. They are 12th after three wins and two draws from eight matches.
