The Premier League said in a statement: “Clubs know that away fans have a unique status. They are essential for match atmosphere and stimulate the response from home fans that distinguishes Barclays Premier League matches from those of other leagues.”

Though announced on Wednesday, the new cap doesn’t come into force until next season and is set to run for three years to the end of the 2018/19 season.

Arsenal have gone even further with initiative though, and said they would provide a further £4 discount for away supporters, so Gunners fans would pay just £26 to go to away games.
