Hull City fans group welcomes season ticket increases

Hull City supporters' group 'City Till We Die' has welcomed news that the club plans to increase season ticket prices.

Price rises are not usually backed by fans but CTWD believe that owner Assem Allam may now be considering to withdraw his plans to rename the club Hull Tigers from Hull City AFC.

CTWD feel that increasing the cost of season tickets is a way for Allam to raise funds rather than bringing in commercial money from a rebrand.

"We are pleased that the Allam family are planning for their ongoing stewardship of Hull City AFC in the event that the FA rejects their name change application," read a statement from CTWD.

"We remain open to helping find viable solutions to make the club self-sufficient.

"The decision on the name change proposal is now in the hands of the FA. We assume that the club will have made details clear to the FA of any thus far undisclosed link between potential sponsorship deals and a change of playing name in their submission.

"CTWD has faith in the FA's ongoing consultation and has undertaken not to comment on the investigation. We respect the FA process and await their decision."
