Aston Villa And Swansea Agree Reciprocal Ticket Deal
Wed 23rd Oct 2013 | Money & Finance
Aston Villa has reached a reciprocal ticket pricing agreement with Swansea City for away fans.
Similar to those that Newcastle United announced last week, the offer sees Villa the latest club to make away travel more affordable for fans as part of a Premier League wide initiative.
Tickets for both sets of travelling fans will be priced at £25 for adults and £10 for concessions for their Barclays Premier League games on December 28 at Villa Park and on April 26 at the Liberty Stadium.
Other initiatives announced by Villa include free coach travel - which will be available for fans for the game at Swansea - the discounted away scheme rewarding regular away travellers and further incentives for supporters' clubs.
Nicola Keye, Villa's Head of Consumer Sales, said: "We're delighted to have reached agreement with Swansea on our ticket pricing for away supporters for both of our Barclays Premier League games this season.
"The support for the team on the road has been tremendous, as it always is at Villa Park, and this is another step to make more affordable a trip to Wales for those supporters who will travel and get behind Paul Lambert and the players as well as other such trips this season.
"We're really pleased with how Swansea have got behind this with such enthusiasm as keeping football affordable and providing atmosphere and excitement is always a priority for us."
