Football fans may no longer have to fork out on extra fees for train tickets when a match is rescheduled for TV, under a Government proposal.

A trial, initially involving fans of Premier League clubs, could be launched next season.

Currently, supporters who have bought the cheaper advanced fares have to pay an amendment fee if they need to switch trains due to a fixture being rescheduled, or the kick-off time is moved.

RDG chief executive Paul Plummer said: "It's not fair that last-minute changes to the match day schedule can increase costs for travelling fans, which is why train companies are working together to see how we can increase flexibility and give people more certainty about their ticket.

"We continue to work with rail industry leaders on proposals and look forward to setting out a joint way forward which will improve the travelling experience for fans on match days."

Fans were given five weeks notice, even though many may have already bought advance train tickets for earlier trains, so will have to pay a fee to switch to a seat on a later service back to Newcastle.

The number of Premier League matches televised or streamed live in the UK will reach 200 next season, earning the league more than £4.5 billion.
