CRYSTAL Palace have scrapped a plan to introduce a £100 compulsory catering charge for season ticket holders in certain blocks.

The club are now looking at an alternative plan after fans put pressure on the club on forums and Twitter.

While the majority of season ticket prices at Selhurst Park were frozen for the 2015/16 season, a £100 levy was to be introduced for those who sit in the Stanley Stephenson and Malcolm Allison lounges.

The money would have been placed on season ticket cards and could be redeemed for food and drink throughout the course of the next campaign.

The reason for the scheme, Browett previously explained, was to speed up the service in these areas.

But following a strong response from the fans, co-chairman Stephen Browett told members of Palace forum the BBS the unpopularity of the charge has led to the club to drop it.

Browett wrote: "We are very sensitive to the arguments put forward and the last thing that we wanted to do was upset supporters who use this part of the stadium.

"We are meeting this afternoon with key staff to discuss this issue and will do our best to keep everybody happy."

Browett said they would come up with an alternative plan.
