Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest will reward fans for their loyal support by reducing season ticket prices for next season following the completion of Greek shipowner Evangelos Marinakis’ takeover of the club according to the Nottingham Post.

Forest fans have backed their side in their numbers as the club successfully battled to avoid relegation to Sky Bet League One on the final day of the 2016/2017 season.

The Reds’ average attendance of 20,332 this season is higher than the figure of 19,671 recorded in 2015/2016 and with Forest fans having continued to support their club in difficult times, it has been reported that new owner Marinakis will reduce season ticket prices as one of his first acts at the helm at The City Ground.

The level of season ticket price reduction has not yet been revealed however it is understood that the club will announce their new season ticket structure in the coming days while individual match tickets could also be reduced.

Even without a reduction to season ticket prices, fans were expected to snap up tickets over the summer with a new owner and bright new manager bringing fresh hope to The City Ground however the cheaper tickets could really help swell attendances at the club as fans look to forget previous failures to focus on a positive future.
