Fans will be able to buy advance tickets for Premier League games starting from week five, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

This is one of the innovations the Premier League Board intends initiating this season to boost attendance at match venues while helping improve gate proceeds for clubs.

However, implementation of this policy will be done on a pilot basis at selected venues starting from week five before it takes off full scale depending on the success rate of the pilot.

"We have also resolved to sell advanced tickets of Premier League games," PLB boss Welbeck Abra-Appiah exclusively told GHANAsoccernet.com.

"We will be doing that by the 5th week on a pilot basis because of the potential fraudulent act of ticket duplication but then when it is done and it goes well, we will take it up on a wider scale and on a permanent basis."

"I no longer want the situation where fans go and queue on a Sunday morning to buy game tickets when they probably should be at church so we hope by doing this attendance would improve immensely."

The first trench of advanced tickets sales would be made available on November 5 for a yet to be determined Premier League fixture.
