Derby turn down QPR ticket prices

Derby County

Derby County have refused to accept the prices set by QPR for the game at Loftus Road on 27 September.

The club said a pre-season price of 30 for adults and 20 for concessions had been agreed but had been sent tickets priced 10 above those amounts by QPR.

Club spokesman Matt McCann told BBC Radio Derby: "We think it's too high and we don't think that's fair.

"We have stood our ground and QPR have exercised their right to appeal that to the Football League."

A decision on the prices is expected later this week.

"One of our biggest frustrations is the inconvenience it's causing fans," added McCann.

"With going to London supporters may want to book a weekend and make an occasion of it.

"We expect a decision within 24 hours but either way, we will make sure our supporters aren't the victims of this situation."

QPR have recently restructured their ticket pricing with adult tickets ranging from 20 to 50 for league matches.
