Sunderland fans react on Twitter to announcement of next season's ticket prices

Sunderland have announced a reduction of their season ticket prices for the 2016/17 campaign.

Sunderland supporters are delighted that the club have announced that they will reduce season ticket prices for the 2016/17 campaign.

Premier League clubs will get a major increase in the amount of money they will receive for television rights next term.

And Sunderland have used to the opportunity to reduce the cost for their supporters to attend matches.

The Black Cats will now charge adults just £350 for a season-ticket, while over 65’s will have to pay a special price of £250.

Sunderland now have some of the cheapest tickets of any club in the top tier, and their supporters are delighted with the new pricing structure. Here's the best reaction. 

Sunderland’s reduction comes at a time when protests have been widespread against the rising price of attending football matches.

The ‘twenty is plenty’ movement has been gathering pace in recent times, while Liverpool supporters recently stages a successful protest against plans to charge them £77 for a ticket next term.

Sunderland fans will now be hoping that they are buying a ticket to watch their team play in the Premier League rather than the Championship.
