FA cuts prices for England games

Wembley Stadium
Wembley was far from full against the Czechs in the August friendly

The Football Association has cut the price of tickets for England matches in an attempt to boost attendances.

August's match with the Czech Republic was watched by 69,738 and manager Fabio Capello has been critical of the Wembley atmosphere.

The FA will reduce prices by up to 25% for the remaining matches this season.

"We want to make watching the national team as affordable as possible during this difficult period," FA chief operating officer Alex Horne said.

The price reductions will apply to England's home matches, with World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Andorra and a friendly with Slovakia at Wembley.
