Palace boss Pardew says Premier League must intervene on ticket prices

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew feels the Premier League must affect ticket prices for away fans.

Pardew wrote to Crystal Palace supporters urging them to buy tickets for of Saturday's trip to West Ham after many baulked at the £43 asking price.

"With all the finance coming into the game, it is something that must be looked at by the Premier League," he said.

"It is an agenda that we are focusing on, that away fans should get a better rate to make it easier. I am just echoing my personal opinion of what I think our fans want. Fans up and down the country want to follow their team at a decent price. With the new TV contract, I see no reason why that can't be addressed."
