The 20 clubs in the English Premier League have agreed “unanimously” to limit to $42.68 the price of tickets for visiting team fans during the next three seasons.

The new measure, released on Wednesday after it was approved by the clubs, shall come into force at the beginning of the 2016-2017 season and will continue until 2019.

“Clubs know that away fans have a unique status. They are essential for match atmosphere and stimulate the response from home fans that distinguishes English Premier League matches from those of other leagues,” EPL said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Away fans have additional travel costs and pay individual match prices, as season ticket and other discounts are not available to them and the responsibility for them is shared between clubs and, therefore, it is right that there is a collective initiative to help them,” added the note.

“At their last meeting on 4 February, 2016, the clubs unanimously agreed that more should be done to help away fans and, after consideration of a range of options, have now decided to introduce the new 30 pounds ($42.6 dollars) maximum price for away tickets,” concluded the statement.
