Hello all! It's been a fairly quiet pre-season, but there have been some interesting developments over the last few days.
The Premier League have announced that they have freed up £4m to split between all clubs (£200k each) to help give fans a better experience. It's not exactly enough to make much of a difference, but it's a sign that our efforts are not in vain.
Liverpool's have announced that they will use it to reduce away ticket prices by £2-£4. It's hardly significant,... but it's a step in the right direction.
We're still waiting to hear what the other clubs are going to do with the money, we're all hoping that it's not just going to go on facilities. Let's wait and see.

Today see's the coming together of fans of all teams as they march to The Premier Leagues offices where there will be a rally to protest the rising costs in following your football team.
Anyone wishing to join the demonstration from any club should make their way to Regent’s Park and congregate inside the perimeter using the entrance nearest The Secret Garden from 1.00pm onwards.
As well as this protest, Richard Scudamore has agreed to meet with a select group of the organise...rs to discuss pricing and how clubs can work closer with their fans.
This is a significant day in the fight against pricing.

So, you sit down in your £65 seat at Wembley to see your team walk out in the FA Cup Final. You're a bit high up, but the view is still fantastic. £65 is a a lot, but you really wanted to see your team play in this great tournament. You turn around to speak to the guy on the row behind you and he tells you he paid £45 for his ticket. £20 cheaper for a row behind you, but the views are the same, surely?
When you sign The Football Supporters' Federation's Twenty's Plenty petition it trigger's an email to your club & the relevant league. So lobby your club and league NOW! Do it, and then spread the word!
In the North West? Want to contribute to the campaign for better ticket pricing? Head to Liverpool on the 9th of May for a meeting.
The next steps of the campaigns will be discussed here, including a planned call to take action outside the Premier League offices on the 19th June (Fixtures day).
Arsenal introduce £10 teen 'section' and Orient reduce teen prices for next season.
Not sure about Arsenal sticking teenagers in one section, but it's great to see clubs starting to pay attention to ticket pricing. Still a long way to go.
