Spanish LaLiga football clubs have reached an agreement that will see a minimum of 300 tickets designated for away fans cost a maximum price of €25 (£21/$26), according to reports.
Forbes has reported that 11 clubs have agreed to the ticketing deal, which follows a similar policy to the English Premier League, where tickets for away supporters are capped at £30.
The 11 clubs are Almería, Athletic Club, Atlético de Madrid, Cádiz, Celta Vigo, Girona, Mallorca, Real Betis, Real Sociedad, Sevilla and Valencia.
It has not yet been confirmed, but Forbes reported that the three newly promoted clubs from Segunda División are expected to also join the initiatives.
FC Barcelona is also reportedly considering the agreement, but the club’s temporary move to the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys will mean a restricted capacity. Remaining clubs that reportedly haven’t joined the deal include Getafe, Osasuna, Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid and Villarreal.
The deal is yet to be finalised, but it is expected that clubs will want to include permission for one exception per season, meaning they would be able to ignore the €25 cap for that game. Clubs could then place higher price tags on more in-demand matches such as derby fixtures.
It is hoped that the away ticket cap would help to boost LaLiga’s average attendances. Top-tier LaLiga clubs attracted a cumulative attendance of over 11 million during the 2022-23 season.
