Fulham fans protested the cost of their tickets before the game with Man City

The Premier League strugglers are the third-most expensive club to watch in terms of how much the cheapest seats are, behind only Chelsea and Man City.

Fulham fans had originally planned to bring their “#StopTheGreed” banners into Craven Cottage for a protest in the 55th minute.

However, their plans were scuppered after they were told any banners would be taken away from them on entry to the stadium.

Instead, the angry supporters lined up outside the Cottage Gate – where players arrive on match-day – to show off their banners and hand out leaflets.

OWN GOAL

The cheapest tickets at Craven Cottage cost £45 – for “behind the goal” tickets at the Hammersmith End.

However, even then those seats go for £60 on big game days – including today’s game against City.

Earlier this season Fulham had their own say on the cost of a matchday ticket – calling them “balanced”.

A statement read: “There are various categories for match ticket prices in 2018-19 and these are balanced against other fixtures at Craven Cottage.

“Ticket classifications during the Premier League campaign include a ‘family fixture’ category, such as the match against Burnley earlier in the season, where adult prices ranged from £25 to £45.”

But fans were left unimpressed by that statement – particularly given the club’s stature this season.

Going into Saturday’s game against City, Fulham were sat just three points off last-placed Huddersfield on just 17 points from their 31 games.
