Wolves to subsidise ticket prices for Leeds match at Elland Road

Wolves | Published:

Wolves are to subsidise the cost of fans' tickets for the trip to Leeds next month.

Wolves fans

The midweek televised clash, on March 7, should have cost fans £37 for a ticket or £25 for concessions.

However Wolves's subsidy means the prices will be cut to £30 and £20 respectively as a thank you to supporters who have backed the club in huge numbers on their away travel this season.

Tickets for under 16s remain at £16 and under-11s are the same at £8.

Gesture

The Elland Road trip is one of four away game within three weeks and Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple. “With the Leeds game being on a Wednesday evening and selected for TV we want to make sure as many of our supporters as possible are able to attend the game.

"We hope this gesture will go some way to ensuring that it's as affordable as possible and we see a capacity take up of travelling fans to Elland Road.

"We have sold out Preston on Saturday with an incredible 5,600 making the trip, and only yesterday announced a further 500 Fulham tickets were going on sale to meet demand, so I have no doubt that we will take another huge following to West Yorkshire on March 7.

"Our travelling support has been magnificent all season, and this is another way of showing our continued appreciation to those of you who have played a part in an excellent campaign so far."

Dalrymple said the club are also looking to finalise season ticket prices for next season - which looks certain to be providing Praemier League football at Molineux.

Dalrymple added: "I am aware that fans are beginning to want clarity regarding our pricing policy for the 2018/19 season, which we are currently in the process of finalising.

“The pricing plan will be communicated shortly, and I hope it continues to demonstrate that we understand the sensitivities around ticket pricing and are determined to ensure that we are offering value to fans who make a significant commitment to support their club.”
