Middlesbrough have given their fans something more to cheer about following their impressive summer spending spree, announcing that they have frozen their matchday ticket prices.

Following their relegation to the Championship last season, the Teessiders have decided not to inflate prices - unlike most English clubs - with general adult tickets starting at around £30, according to their official website.

Around 20,000 fans have already pledged their loyalty to the club by purchasing season tickets at the Riverside, meaning that the ground should have a very good average capacity next season.

It has been a summer of optimism for the north-east club following their drop down to England's second-tier after a fairly dismal return to the Premier League.

The club have acquired highly-rated manager Garry Monk and have announced a number of very encouraging signings.

Martin Braithwaite and Britt Assombalonga have arrived from Toulouse and Nottingham Forest to bolster the forward line, with Derby right-back Cyrus Christie also making the move.
