Call for TV deal money to be used to reduce prices
he Football Supporters’ Federation has launched a petition here which calls for Premier League clubs to use their TV deal to lower ticket prices, and greater redistribution to the grassroots of football.
The petition auto-generates an email to each signatory’s club.
The petititon says:
The Premier League has signed a new TV mega-deal worth £5.14bn, and that’s just for UK rights. The increase from the last domestic deal alone equates to £40+ for every fan, at every game; top-flight clubs have to bring down ticket prices and support lower-league/grassroots football. There are five billion reasons why clubs should #shareTVwealth!
Fans demand that clubs:
1 Drop prices for home fans;
2 Commit to the FSF’s Twenty’s Plenty away price cap;
3 Redistribute more wealth to support lower-league and grassroots football.
