Derby welcome ticket rise ruling

Derby County

Derby County have welcomed a Football League ruling which prevents increased prices for this Saturday's game against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

The club turned down tickets priced 40 for adults and 30 for concessions as it was a 10 increase on agreed rates.

John Vicars, vice-president of operations, said the club was pleased with the Football League's decision.

"We will now be working closely with QPR to sort out the swift distribution of tickets to our supporters."

606: DEBATE

QPR said the increase in ticket prices at Loftus Road was to help maintain budgets previously set to provide a better standard of entertainment for home and away fans.

The Queens Park Rangers supporters trust, QPR 1st, have said the increase "is unjustified and will have a serious effect on the relationship between the club and its supporters."
