Cut The Cost Of Footie Campaign

Cut The Cost Of Footie Campaign

A quick update on the Cut The Cost of Footie survey and campaign:

The Sun's front page reports today that Bolton Wanderers have become the first Premiership club to slash new season ticket prices in response to the Cut the Cost of Footie Campaign.

Last week The Sun featured the results of the FFC 'Cut the Cost of Footie?' Survey showing 96% of fans felt Premiership clubs should use increased TV revenes to cut ticket prices and highlighting some of the sacrifices our members make to follow their teams: 'Do more overtime', 'Not eating properly!' 'No savings :-(' and more... Click Here for link to Sun article

Bolton Chiefs will cut the price of seats, barring corporate hospitality deals, by an average 10% for next term. Manager Sam Allardyce said: “The Sun’s been at the forefront of the campaign to reduce prices, and we are delighted we can show the way to do it and put something back into the game.'

we sit in a third rate stadia, so prices should reflect that, ok we are in the prem and wages and players prices are that much higher, but it would be nice to give the fans something back

And I don't think you really get your money's worth from a Pompey VIP game for 225 quid - Ground Tour, 3 course meal, drinks, photo opportunity with M.O.M and the executive seat is not even padded and cramped like any other.

Can't fill 20,000 every week. Blackburn, Bolton & Fulham don't sell out. Bums on seats at a lower price. Supporters spend on other things once they have a ticket. £25 should be top quack.

If we lower the prices at Fratton and stay with a 20000 capacity then the obvious problem will be less revenue for the club to pay players. This will result in a drop in the standard of the players coming to our club. This makes the funding of a youth academy very important. I think we should also start a campaign against clubs paying agents (Willie Mcakay) who take a hefty cut of transfers as well. They take money from the game that will never work its way back into football. That said football can still be cheap. I went to Sheff Utd away with the two of the younger Rabbi clan on the train last month. The total cost was £35 for three match tickets, and £32 return on the train (with a Family railcard). The easiest way to get clubs to lower prices is not to attend matches.

By the way aren't the Sun owned by Rupert Murdoch, who is also owner of Sky Sports? Its mainly down to Sky's ridiculous KO times that away supporters can't get to matches, and so decide to watch on TV instead, thus depriving clubs of gate receipts. I wouldn't trust the Sun on this one at all.

The amount of money in the Prem via TV deals makes what supporters pay not as relevant as it used to.

Pompey Board meeting in very near future to discuss the next seasons ticket prices. So if anyone does have strong views on this maybe you should each email tickets@pompeyfc.co.uk, and ask for this to be considered or discussed at the coming board meeting. Maybe one of the Viatl people could set up a petition for us to all sign, and email this to the tickets email account for submission?

why don't the FA cut the £26m on offer (for effectively losing) for finishing in the bottom 3 of the premiership next season and allocate the money to subsidise ticket prices? Why punish loyal supporters who turn up in all weathers at all times to watch crap football with high ticket prices and instead reward three teams for not being very good?

It's a difficult one this, of course, I want to pay as little as possible for my season ticket but I also realise the effect it will have on the playing staff - 20 thousand is not going to help us live with most teams in the Prem. A reduction similar to Bolton and cheaper seats for kids would do me nicely, I think.
