QPR Prices - QPR Fans Side With Derby

Still waiting for the Football League to decide (as a couple of messageboard posters suggest that the club may reverse itself. Meanwhile the fan posts point the finger of blame at de facto manging director Ali Russell, rather than at the club owners who one might think, would be the ones ultimately responsible.)

Derby Evening Telegraph - QPR fans side with the Rams

QUEENS Park Rangers fans have backed Derby County in the ticket-price row between the two clubs.
Derby, who were still waiting on a final ruling on the issue from the Football League last night, are contesting the £40 away-ticket price set by QPR for the Championship clash on September 27 – an increase of £10 on the original agreement.
QPR fans have also seen their ticket prices increased to up to £50.
The Queens Park Rangers supporters trust, QPR 1st, said the prices were "unjustified."
"It is consistent with its policy towards the pricing of season tickets, which was also dealt with in an insensitive and brash manner," said a statement.
Derby Supporters Club chairman John Hemsworth sympathised with fans at Loftus Road.
"It would be like a Derby fan paying £40 to go and sit in the East Stand," he said.
"You just can't charge that amount for a Championship game.
"I've got every sympathy with QPR fans because it looks like they're going to be battling this problem for the rest of the season."
The prices for Derby's visit to Loftus Road had been set at £30 in the Upper Tier and £25 in the Lower Tier with the standard concessions. QPR want to raise them to £40 and £30. Derby Evening Telegraph
