LFP set to introduce ticket cap for away fans

The office of the French Football League (LFP) has approved the introduction of a €10 ($11) cap on away match tickets for the top-tier Ligue 1 from the 2019-20 season.

A cap of €5 has also been proposed for away tickets in Ligue 2.

The LFP said that the measure will be introduced on the basis that visiting fans are allocated five per cent of the stadium’s capacity.

The LFP hopes the cap will allow supporters to follow their teams more easily.

The initiative will be put to the council of the LFP on June 6.
