Port Talbot Town fans chose their own ticket price

Help

A Welsh Premier football club has allowed fans to pay what they want at the gates in a bid to boost attendance.

Port Talbot Town tried the idea on Saturday for their game against Bala Town at the 6,000-seat stadium at Victoria Road.

The team, fourth in the league, had an average attendance of just 207 between 1994 and 2010 and has rarely topped 200 this season.

Early estimates suggest an increase of about 10% in the crowd.

Speaking before the game, club chairman Andrew Edwards said something had to be done to boost the "disappointing" turnout.
