The Premier League has announced they will be retaining the £30 price cap on away tickets for the next three seasons.
The cap came in at the start of the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.
A statement on Friday said: "Premier League clubs have today unanimously agreed to continue the £30 cap on away ticket prices for the next three seasons.
"All clubs know the crucial importance of away fans in generating the best possible atmosphere at matches and recognise the additional travel costs often involved when following a team away from home.
"The £30 away ticket cap was introduced in the 2016/17 season after the successful implementation of the Premier League Away Supporters' Initiative, where clubs provided a range of measures for their away fans.
"For the last four consecutive seasons, Premier League crowds have reached record levels with 96 per cent of tickets sold.
"This is testament to the compelling football and dedication of fans, and the League is committed to maintaining these high attendances."
In its subsequent statement on promoting inclusion and diversity, the Premier League said: "All clubs agreed that while good work has been undertaken, more needs to be done to ensure BAME fans and players are supported.
"They also agreed for pathways to be improved to encourage more people from different backgrounds to take up coaching, refereeing and administrative roles in the sport.
"The League will now consult with external stakeholders, including other football bodies, the Government, equality and inclusion groups, and current and former players and managers on the detail of new work we develop in this area."
