LONDON – Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes has responded to fan anger by cutting ticket prices a week after he took over the club.
The Premier League club says fans will enjoy ''significant'' savings, although full details were not released.
Fans who bought the cheapest season ticket at 549 pounds ($906) will be given at least 99 pounds ($163) back. Holders of the most expensive season tickets at 999 pounds ($1,650) are set to receive a more significant refund yet to be disclosed.
Matchday tickets are being cut by at least 10 pounds, with the most expensive for the biggest games now worth 70 pounds ($116).
PR official Jenny Elliott says this is ''a major step forward in terms of rebuilding the bond between the club and its supporters.''
