Liverpool legend Didi Hamann praised Reading on social media for their Twenty's Plenty ticket stance ahead of the new campaign.

Despite having been an early adopter of the scheme, which limits away supporters' ticket price to £20, the decision to write to the rest of the Championship and urge them to do the same has garnered much support from the football world.

Instead of offering a blanket price of £20 to everyone, like they have done in the past, the Royals have altered their position and will offer supporters of clubs who have agreed to reciprocate the deal a cheaper ticket.

So far just four of the 23 clubs have agreed, namely Cardiff City; Huddersfield Town; Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City.

Gaining national and worldwide coverage for their initiative to make tickets cheaper, Germany icon Hamann is just the latest.

Tweeting his support, he said: "Well played Reading FC" on the afternoon of the announcement.

Hamann played more than 100 times for German giants Bayern Munich in the 1990s before a 12 year spell in England with Newcastle United, Liverpool, Manchester City and MK Dons.

With Liverpool he won two FA Cups, two League Cups, a Champions League and a UEFA Cup; as well as finishing runner-up in the 2002 World Cup- making almost 300 appearances at Anfield.
