Chelsea have reversed their decision to impose a 35% increase on ticket prices for their FA Cup fifth-round match against Liverpool, following pressure from supporters.
The club had planned on raising prices on their pre-publicised adult ticket of £30, with Jürgen Klopp's side set to travel to Stamford Bridge on March 3.
The Chelsea Supporters Trust (CST) released a statement following the club's decision to raise prices by 35%, but the club confirmed they've now reversed their decision to increase ticket prices.
On their official website, Chelsea confirmed: "
"The CST is once again dismayed by the continued disregard shown towards match-going supporters, who have been subjected to expensive and challenging travel arrangements throughout this season."
The club's response to the CST and the overwhelming support which they received is undoubtedly a positive step in the right direction for fan participation in the Premier League.
