The Twenty's Plenty petition is now closed, although FSF campaigns around ticket prices are still ongoing.

What is Twenty's Plenty? A call upon football clubs at all levels of the game to recognise and reward the amazing contribution of away fans by getting together to agree an across the board price cap on away match tickets of £20 (£15 for concessions). Prices are too high and they often hit travelling fans hardest - we want to fix that.

What did the Twenty's Plenty petition achieve? The key idea behind the FSF’s Twenty’s Plenty petition was that clubs should offer away fans cheaper deals on a reciprocal basis, preferably for £20 or less. This idea was used by nine clubs during 2013/14 saving 31,807 fans a total of £342,260. That number will surpass £500,000 during 2014/15.

In addition it created a campaigning environment in which the Premier League saw fit to introduce the £12m Away Fans Initative. This equates to £200,000 per club, per season and is budgeted money which must be spent on away supporters. The best deals reduced ticket prices on the gate, while others offered free coach travel. 

Perhaps as importantly the petition really pushed the issue of ticket prices up the agenda. Five or six years ago, very few in the game cared about the issue; nowadays it's widely recognised as an issue by ex-pros, high-profile journalists, and politicians.

Can I do more? Yes! The FSF will lead a demonstration of fans at the next meeting of the Premier League shareholders held in central London on Thursday 26th March (time TBC). This is a vital protest for fans from ALL leagues; we want to see you there regardless of the club you support.

Also sign our new #ShareTVWealth petition - this triggers an email to them and the relevant league outlining your support for lower prices/redistribution of TV wealth throughout the pyramid. It's a vital step in this campaign as the PL and FL always insist that clubs hold the power.

    Absolutely correct no fan should have to pay more than £20 for a away day

    For example it is outrageous that Derby County fans will be forced to shell out £40 to see their side play my team at Carrow Road.

    We (Derby County) are being charged £40 to see our team play at Carrow Road. Is this the price of success with us battling for promotion or simply Norwich seeing the fans as easy targets knowing that more than usual will travel? We charged Norwich no more than £27 when they came to the iPro earlier in the season, surely these prices should be reflected in the return fixture. Surely to charge less would mean more fans through the turnstiles which in turns means more money to the vendors in and around the ground.

    Signed this petition after hearing about Norwich City charging Derby County £40 for an away ticket. Even if this were an all Premiership affair I would be against paying £40 but for two sides in the Championship the price is utterly baffling. Modern football is becoming a joke!

    Stop bleeding the true fans dry. Clubs get enough from TV fees now, especially from this new deal, they need to stop regretting that without a crowd, there is not game.

    Norwich City and any other club that charges £40 for a division 2 game should hang their heads in shame. Football is (was) the working mans game. Paying theatre ticket prices is out of the question.

    Utterly scandalous that Norwich want to charge derby fans £40.....and only letting us have just under 2000 tickets.......I live in Norwich and wanted to take my three grown up kids so adult prices and my granddaughter who is 3 to her first ever footie game and get her on right track of supporting Derby.....in total for 4 adults and a 3 year old £177........Ridiculous!!!...at least I dont have the additional travel costs as most others......

    I used to go to many an away game growing up, but in recent seasons I have been unable to be part of the travelling faithful due to the rise in costs. I understand the local derbies tend to charge the most, but in particular I find it disgusting that Norwich can charge £40 for a match in the second tier! Ridiculous!

    £20 is enough to make money off fans. No away fans, no atmosphere. My five year old lines the atmosphere caused by away fans. Keep removing away fans and we may as well all become armchair fans Derby charged £40 by yellow bellies inbred farmers. Fcuk the cook witch
