Derby Manager Paul Jewell: Ticket price win is good news for fans
PAUL Jewell is pleased for the Derby County supporters following the club’s victory in their ticket-price row with Queen’s Park Rangers.
QPR wanted to charge Rams fans up to £40 to attend Saturday’s game at Loftus Road – £10 more than originally agreed – but a Football League ruling has prevented the West London club from doing so.
Jewell thinks the extras charge would have been outrageous.
“I think £30 is a lot of money to watch a Championship match. They [QPR]were going to raise it £10 for our fans which is outrageous,” said Jewell.
“I’m sure we’ll have a good following there but this is a victory for our supporters and common sense.”
Derby County anticipates having tickets for the game available for sale from Pride Park Stadium at 6pm tonight.
The tickets – priced £30 and £25 for adults with concessions – are being sent by QPR today.
Tickets will also be available for sale to Derby fans on the day at Loftus Road, via cash turnstiles on the School End of the ground on Bloemfontein Road. Rams

The Guardian/Matt Scott- Fans pay for takeover
Queens Park Rangers might be the richest club in the land - at least until Sheikh Mansour Al Nahyan's takeover of Manchester City is completed - but fans should be careful what they wish for. Loftus Road is a billionaires' playground, with Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore, left, and Lakshmi Mittal on the board. Yet that has not prevented price hikes to £50 for "platinum" tickets as QPR (only trophy the 1967 League Cup) is transformed into what they like to think of as a boutique club. A £10 price increase was due to be levied on visiting fans ahead of the "Category A" match against Derby County this weekend; until the Football League's board pointed out on Monday that mid-season price increases for away fans are illegal under its regulations.
