Wolves are not only top of the league on the pitch, but they are proving a class act off it too.
The Championship leaders announced yesterday they would be subsidising tickets for fans for the fixture next month at Elland Road.
The reason for this is not simply as a gesture of goodwill, its that Wolves felt the £37 ticket away price to fans was unacceptably high.
Wolves want their fans to travel in numbers for the midweek trip, and have pledged to pay up so that fans will only have to pay £30 per ticket, the club announced on their official website.
While there was big praise for Wolves CEO Laurie Dalrymple, fans directed their ire at Leeds United for the high ticket prices in the first place.
Well played Wolves At least next year there is a £30 cap and rob dogs like Leeds and Sheff Wed can get in the bin.— Danny Rosamond (@DannyRosamond) February 13, 2018
Quality from the Wolves, prices are scandalous by Leeds— Robert Evans (@RobertE11484400) February 13, 2018
Seems like everyone is pretty fed up with the pricing policy of Leeds!!! You do realise you’re not in the top flight anymore?!?!?— Michael Jarrett (@mjarrett81) February 13, 2018
Wolves fans were very forthright over their views, but Leeds United fans had some sympathy despite their ire being directed towards their club.
Leeds fans are not comfortable with the prices being charged by the club, and expressed their disappointment last July when the figures for the season were announced.
Supporters commented on Twitter yesterday criticising their own club in reaction to the course of action taken by Wolves.
Embarrassing. That one team feels the need to subsidise the ticket prices because of the greed of another club. All away tickets should be the same (£20 is plenty) and I’m a Leeds fan.— Peter Martin (@MrMartinSir) February 13, 2018
Embarrassing that the prices of tickets for a Leeds game mean the away clubs have to do something like this. Premiership prices for mid table championship football.— Joshua Pye (@lufcpye) February 13, 2018
Very good gesture by wolves! Our ticket prices are a joke & we all know it, yet we have to pay otherwise we can't watch the lads. Club need to seriously rethink these prices for the future for home & away fans. #lufc #mot https://t.co/BRh6pvKLdZ— Tony (@Tonylufc28) February 13, 2018
