Aston Villa supporters have reacted to the news of their season ticket prizes being frozen for next season, regardless of whether or not they will be playing in the Premier League.

The Midlands club announced that, over the course of the next two months, the prices for season tickets at Villa Park will remain exactly the same as they were for this season. The most expensive adult ticket will be priced at £595, while the cheapest can be purchased for a bargain fee of £322.

Some will question the club’s motivation for this given that they have only recently been able to sell out the stadium for home league games but, if you put that to one side, it seems Villa are living up to their newfound reputation of being a club that cares for their supporters.

An upturn in fortunes on the pitch has no doubt prompted them to make a swift move on this, with the club now being just a few months away from a potential return to the Premier League.

Their victory over bitter rivals Birmingham City at the weekend saw them leapfrog Derby County up into second place, and while they do trail local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers by 12 points, their supporters are still hoping for a Championship title come the end of the season.

Given that Villa are one of the biggest clubs in the second tier and potentially in the entire country, you have to question whether or not other teams are going to follow suit as opposed to upping their prices.

With that being said, here is a collection of the best tweets from the Villa Park faithful:
