Throughout today we have been running a poll asking supporters of Norwich City to vote on what a fair ticket price would be for the club’s upcoming League Cup quarter-final at Carrow Road.

The club’s chief executive, David McNally, sparked debate on Twitter this morning when he asked Canaries fans for feedback about the club’s Capital One Cup ticket prices so far this season.

A crowd of 16,465 watched the club’s 2-1 fourth round victory over Tottenham Hotspur last night, suggesting plenty of City fans were not happy to pay £30 for the match.

The club’s second and third round matches, against lower league sides Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers respectively, had cost just £10.

So the rise in price was criticised by some City fans ahead of the match.

All associated with the club now have a quarter-final to look forward to against Aston Villa, managed by former City boss Paul Lambert, in early December.

The City chief executive clearly wants to try and get pricing for the match right, so we asked you to let him know what a fair price would be.

Over 1,000 people voted in our online poll today and, as of 5pm, the winning choice was £25 with 46pc of the votes, narrowly ahead of £20, which received 42pc of the votes.

Just 10pc of people voted for £30 and only 1pc of people voted for £35 and £40, just 10 and 14 people respectively.

The poll will remain open however, so there is still time to cast your vote.

  • They should keep the ticket price the same but double-up on the pies etc. Disguise it as a new product launch; Dehlia`s Balti Pies for the Villa fans. Deeelish! £6 - a snip!

  • Every affectionate jibe I make at City in fun is one that cannot be effectively used by a real troll out of spite. A form of self-deprecation, in bulk.

  • Brewer, have you got nothing constructive to say? I assume that you went to the previous games when the prices were only £10 or was that too expensive too? We have enough trolls on here with you becoming one too!

  • Or a special deal for folk who just cannot get a ticket any more? Or can`t afford them anyway. That would lead to means testing.......

  • As a cup run is always seen as a "bonus"....how about making it free entry for season ticket holders as a thank you for sticking by the team during the bad times. That would be a gesture....

  • I like a bit of whimsy. We could really make Vilea fans feel at home, pick the 2 grottiest pubs in the city, designate them "Away Supporters Pubs" then charge a fee just to get in. I'm sure that the club could take a commission on this entry fee.

  • Baguio, interesting point about previous games, Scunthorpe 13,116, Doncaster 13,902, Spurs 16,465.So doubling the ticket price seems to increase the crowd by nearly 20%. Brewer, keep up the whimsy, I for one enjoy it.
