Newly-promoted Norwich reward fans by REDUCING cost of tickets

Norwich have made the unorthodox move of reducing the cost of their home tickets despite being promoted to the Premier League
.
The Canaries romped to the Championship title last season to earn another shot in the top-flight after three years away.
But instead of raising prices, which is the norm for most newly-promoted clubs, Norwich have capped all adult match tickets at £30. 
The decision comes in the wake of Premier League clubs agreeing to extend the £30 cap on away tickets for the next three seasons.
The club's chief operating officer, Ben Kensell, said: 'As a club, we took a lot of time to deliberate around what we should do around the casual ticketing for home supporters.
'We believe as a football club that we have phenomenal support and we shouldn't price people out of football. 
'So as a club, we decided that if £30 is fair for away supporters, then £30 is also fair for home supporters considering the price of a home ticket last time we were in the Premier League.
'No one in the ground from a general admission perspective next season will pay more than £30. That, as a club, sets us apart and we're really proud of that. We think it's the right thing to do.'
Premier League tickets will costs £30 for Adults, £25 for over 65s, £20 for under 18s and £15 for under 12s. 
Any loss in ticket revenue will be offset by a huge increase in TV money, with Norwich set to receive around £100million next season alone.
All 20 top-flight clubs are paid a basic amount of around £80m, with extra payments each time they are shown live on Sky Sports and BT Sport.
