'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Price of Football

Apart from all of the anger/hate towards our owner in the past for some decisions, we haven't got that much to grumble about on the business side of things after a BBC report was published earlier.

In it, The report had a variety of categories with the price that clubs charged.

Surprisingly, NUFC had the cheapest tickets available for a single game at 15, which was nearly 10 below the average cheapest price in the league. We also fared well in many things including the cheapest day out at an average of 23. So overall not bad.

As i said before, Mike Ashley endures a lot of stick here for some decisions that seem bad to start with but work out not so bad whilst ticket prices and other spin offs are nothing to get heated up about up here, so it's one department where things are spot on.

Contrary to reports of boycotts and various other ill feeling, the crowds are up, maybe in part to the pricing but also in part to the improved running of the club. Incentives like having a 10 year season ticket price freeze as well as being able to pay on a 12 month direct debit scheme makes the NUFC experience very affordable and we can't complain here.

Lets be honest, football in general - value for money wise - is too expensive. But it is good to see the Clubs who are trying to keep prices down. As I've said on my site, clubs should be looking at making it much cheaper for the kids to come, remember the days you used to go on your own as a teenager? Look around at your next game, how many are there? They can't afford it unless parents take them. We need to get the youth in and hooked for the good of our clubs. They won't do anything sensible though, the tv and commercial money means the most to them so the sad thing is, they really could if they wanted!

I agree J. One thing missed in all this is that is the likes of Sky TV that have hiked the game into the next class. It is in all theory a working class game only affordable to the middle class and above. Some clubs including our own have enabled the lower classes to keep on the coat tails.
