Bristol City fans have expressed outrage at the price of tickets for the side's first away game back in the Championship.
The board of Bristol City's Supporters Club & Trust have decided to stay away because they think £39 is extortionate.
Nobody’s calling for a boycott, we just think it is a step too far. We think many City fans will vote likewise and choose not to go. Maybe in that way Sheffield Wednesday will get the message that this is unreasonable. After all, it will only cost Reading fans £25 when they go to Hillsborough. Where’s the sense in that?
A spokesperson for Bristol City has issued this response
Ticket prices for this fixture are set by the home club and not by Bristol City FC. We will always look to set fair prices for supporters at Ashton Gate as we look to attract as many fans along as possible to support the team.
The game will take place at Hillsborough on Saturday 8 August.
Two women have been jailed for defrauding a youth football league out of more than £160,000.
Karen Prictor and Margaret Rivers funded lavish lifestyles by abusing their positions at the North Wiltshire and District Youth and Minor Football League. The pair fraudulently siphoned off £166,000 for themselves over four years.
47-year-old Prictor, from Toothill and the league's treasurer, received four years for fraud by abuse of position and money laundering.
While 55-year-old Rivers, from Swindon, and the general secretary, was handed two years and four months for the same.
Motivated by their greed, Karen Prictor and Margaret Rivers defrauded the Football Association out of approximately £166,000.
Even after her passport was seized, Karen Prictor lied on an application to obtain a new passport and booked to go on a luxury holiday to Mexico when she was due in court.
The money they fraudulently siphoned was taken from a not-for-profit organisation which could have been used to help fund activities for the hundreds of local children involved in the league in and around Swindon.
The youth league is one of the country's largest, with 360 teams of seven to 18 year olds competing across 40 divisions.
The demolition crews are at work again at Ashton Gate stadium in Bristol.
