Sky Bet Championship club Nottingham Forest have confirmed that all season ticket prices will be reduced by 10% following Greek shipowner Evangelos Marinakis’ completed takeover of the club according to the Nottingham Post.

The 49-year-old Olympiacos president completed his long awaited takeover earlier this week after passing the English Football League’s fit and proper person’s test.

Marinakis is ready to build bridges with Forest fans following former owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi’s failed five-year period in charge at The City Ground and the founder and chairman of Capital Maritime & Trading Corp has made the popular decision to reduce season ticket prices by 10%.

With new manager Mark Warburton at the helm and fresh investment from new owner Marinakis, Nottingham Forest look to be in a strong position to challenge at the top end of the Sky Bet Championship next season, particularly if the club can do some solid business in the transfer marker this summer.

The Reds avoided relegation to the third tier of English football on the final day of the season after beating Ipswich Town 3-0 at The City Ground and bettering relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers’ result.

With doom and gloom having surrounded the banks of the Trent in previous years, the negativity is now set to lift in the coming months and be replaced with new hope. Forest fans are expected to back their new owner and the club’s reduced season ticket prices are expected to see The Reds record their highest ticket sales in several years.
