Newly promoted fans of the Norwich reward by reducing the cost of tickets with a £ 30 discount on Premier League matches
- Norwich won the championship title to return to the top flight after three years
- They have now capped all Premier League tickets for the home up to a maximum of £ 30
- Move comes in the wake of clubs that expand the cap on the cost of sold out tickets
- Ben Kensell, the COO of the Canary Islands, says that new prices & # 39; are the right things to do & # 39; for fans
Norwich has made the unorthodox move to reduce the cost of their tickets, despite being promoted to the Premier League.
The Canary Islands jumped to the championship title last season to have a chance to win the top flight after three years.
But instead of raising prices, which is the norm for most newly promoted clubs, Norwich has covered all adult tickets for £ 30.

The decision comes in the wake of Premier League clubs that agree to extend the £ 30 discount on tickets for the next three seasons.
Ben Kensell, the club's chief operating officer, said: “As a club, we have taken a lot of time to deliberate on what we should do about casual ticketing for home supporters.
& # 39; We believe that as a football club we have phenomenal support and that we should not reward people with football.
& # 39; So as a club, we decided that if £ 30 is fair for remote supporters, £ 30 is also fair for home fans, given the price of a home card last time we were in the Premier League.

& # 39; Nobody in the ground from a general admission perspective next season pays more than £ 30. That we stand out as a club and are very proud of that. We think it's good to do. & # 39;
Premier League tickets cost £ 30 for adults, £ 25 for people over 65, £ 20 for guests under 18 and £ 15 for guests under 12 years.
The club has also introduced a renewed membership system to deal with an increased demand for tickets.
