Hull City fans group City Till We Die have welcomed reports of the club increasing season ticket prices.
Price hikes are rarely seen as good news among supporters, but CTWD believe it could be a sign that the Egyptian will not go through with his previous promise to walk away if the Football Association reject his application to rename the team Hull Tigers.
A statement from the organisation read: "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. 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."
