Several English clubs have done very little in recent years to appease their supporters, naming no names… Sunderland (cough cough.)
It’s heart warming to see that at least some clubs are trying to not completely p**s their fans off, and so Las Palmas should be commended for their latest gesture.
Paco Jemez’s side have announced that all current season ticket holders will receive a free season ticket for next year.
The La Liga side have had a dismal season and after a 4-0 defeat to Alaves last weekend, their relegation to Spanish football’s second tier was confirmed.
After the dust settled on the news of their relegation, the club acted swiftly to try and change the mood of the disgruntled fans.
Relegation came as a shock to Las Palmas, who had finished as high as 11th and 14th place in their previous La Liga campaigns.
The stadium was virtually empty when relegation was confirmed, with the club now recognising the importance of keeping the fans on side.
Home support could be crucial for Las Palmas if they are to bounce back to La Liga at the first time of asking next season.
Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell is set to earn £43,000-a-week in League One.
You can’t help but think that could be more wisely spent on something nice for Black Cats supporters, who have been through it all in recent years.
Fair play, Las Palmas, at least one club respects their fans.
