Manchester City fan group welcomes freeze on season-ticket prices
Manchester City are the latest Premier League club to announce a freeze in season-ticket prices for the 2016-17 campaign.
City have issued renewal notices to current holders announcing that prices will remain the same as this season.
Their decision comes against a backdrop of growing supporter dissatisfaction over the issue at the club.
Supporters organisation 1894 Group had planned to protest about a feared rise, and the £60 top price for individual seats at next week's clash with Paris St Germain, by holding up banners during Saturday's visit of West Brom.
A statement from the organisation read: "After six years of continual price rises, we welcome the price freeze on season ticket prices announced by the club. It's a step in the right direction."
But the group say they will continue to lobby the club in an effort to ensure tickets remain at affordable levels.
The statement added: "We see ticket prices being an ongoing issue for our fanbase. It's not just about today but also what happens over the next few years and we'll be ready to publicly push forward fans' concerns whenever it is needed.
"The club have listened because they have had to listen. So the last thing we would do is ease off now. It's vital we keep the pressure on the club and use our collective voices on ticket prices."
