Steve explains why their football support has become a family affair: “I’ve been a Bournemouth fan since I was seven – and we’ve been following them as ‘Lads and Dad’ since my boys were three and five. It has involved long hours on coaches and in the car but it’s been worth it!
“Historically we've been a tiny club and this is uncharted territory following The Cherries to these huge iconic stadiums - but it's been 100% brilliant being in the Premier League.
“Ben and Luke have enjoyed getting to experience the big stadiums and collecting souvenirs from their club shops. They have also been adding to their collection of Championship programmes from last season and on the odd occasion seeing themselves in the crowd on Match of the Day.”
“ Our fans have been terrific in the way they have supported the team away from home, and visitors here have added to an already great atmosphere.”Jeff Mostyn, AFC Bournemouth chairman
The Premier League clubs’ away ticket pricing cap of £30 for the 2016/17 season helps more fans like Steve and his boys carry on supporting their team on the road. AFC Bournemouth Chairman Jeff Mostyn said, “As one of the Premier League’s recently promoted clubs, we have found the impact of away fans one of the League’s most remarkable features. Our fans have been terrific in the way they have supported the team away from home, and visitors here have added to an already great atmosphere. We appreciate how many hurdles away fans face when they travel and this cap is a great way to help them.”
