Yep. It will be very hard next season to get as many tickets as we did this. PL games are for the most part very well attended now and the away allocation with the exception of some of the bigger stadiums will be quite a bit more limited I'd have thought. We'll take our full allocation everywhere.

PL teams have to offer 3000 I think, whereas the Championship minimum was only2000.  We reduced our allocation to visiting fans in the championship. I suspect we’ll have to open the corner section agat.

Also, many away grounds in the Championship only give you the 2000 minimum.  For every Preston or Wigan’s, there was an Ipswich or a millwall.

I thought it was down to each club’s discretion how many they offer. It’s certainly not as high as 3k, we only give 2,700 (?) Bournemouth only hold just over 10k, so that would mean almost a third of their stadium would be away fans.

No - It’s 3000 for most grounds and only less for the smaller grounds like Bournemouth.

We gave 2700 max in the championship but will be required to give a few more next season

Must be 500 seats in that corner between North and Witton.

Part of the reason why our capacity crowds this season weren't going over 42k.

Premier League rules dictate that the allocation of away tickets should be: "3,000 tickets or, if the capacity of the home club's stadium is less than 30,000, such number of tickets as is equal to 10 per cent."

We certainly aren’t taking 5/6000 or whatever we’ve done this season to some places. Tickets will be at a premium home and away for our brilliant supporters.

I think a few clubs have reduced away allocations since the maximum £30 rule came in, as they would rather fleece more home fans at full price.

Gate money is peanuts these days - If home teams can fill areas with their own fans and still comply with the 3000 minimum rule then they are bound to do so, as did Cardiff last season.

Even many teams in the Championship would prefer to have empty seats, rather than give the visiting team more fans.

Aways will be tough this coming season I reckon - everyone wanting to go to the big grounds again and probably smaller allocations than we get at a lot of grounds in the Championship.
There’s only one big ground and your season ticket will get you in🤪

Another thing I forgot about. That rule came in the season we went down.

At least if we do get a thrashing at Man. City people at least won't be paying 40 + quid to witness it. Same for Chelsea.

"Big" clubs continue to rake in money from gate receipts - Man United made £112m in 2017, Liverpool £73m, Man City £52m........all the way down to Bournemouth's £6m.

Yes, Bournemouth's replica Bescot Stadium! 11,000 capacity which is smaller than the Holte End's capacity!

That would have to include hospitality.  Unless the admission for home fans is approaching £100

Yes - money made by the clubs from matchday revenue. And at £17.50 for fish and chips at the Emirates, I'm surprised Arsenal aren't top of the league. Either way, money from paying matchday "customers" is still significant.

Average punter gate receipts are around 10% of Premier League club revenue apparently.

I did think Arsenal had the highest revenue in terms of hospitality - as an example they have one box which costs £50k per match... and that's before you've had a drink or anything to eat...
