Also, I would add, as a fan of non league football, unfortunately the lower down the pyramid you go, arguably the worse value it is. Redditch United charge £10 for adults in the Southern Premier (step 7) They have to charge this to stand any chance of surviving, they have tried cheap admission prices for games and hardly any extra fans turn up, those who go are those who go and that's it!!!

Excellent article. Sky have killed it. Pubs are full of people watching. Grounds are reasonably full but I sense a crack developing. Who the hell do the football chiefs think they are?

Tickets are much cheaper here in Nederland than in England.

Unfortunately my team HFC went bankrupt few years ago.

When the income starts drying up in England, there are plenty of fans overseas to fleece.

The bubble will burst eventually. Why does it only cost between 15-30 Euros to watch Bayern Munich ?
Good article here.
