Ticket Prices – England’s Premier League v Best Of Germany

8 years ago

To an extent we’ve just got used to ticket prices in England and the reality is that if you want to go to the match then you have to pay the price on the ticket.

However, surely it must just be seen as totally obscene when teams like Liverpool have recently announced ticket price rises of up to 9% when from next season every Premier League club is to benefit by tens of millions every season, thanks to the new broadcasting deals.

Even his harshest critic must accept that Mike Ashley has gone down the right route at Newcastle and the fact we are heading back once again to a fifty thousand+ league average confirms the ticket policy.

What does make you stop and really think though is when you see what fans pay to watch the biggest club in Germany, season ticket prices to watch all 17 Bayern Munich league matches at the magnificent Allianz Arena are;

Standing: £131/£66 concessions
Category 4 seats: £262/£131
Category 3 seats: £393/£197
Category 2 seats: £481/£240
Category 1 seats: £568/£284

Yes, to stand and watch one of the best teams in Europe works out at £7.70 a match for adults and £3.88 for concessions.

While the cheapest seats work out at £15.41 and £7.70 (Ticket price info taken from an excellent blog on the FSF site).

I don’t know what the solution is but what I do know is that for clubs like Liverpool and others to increase prices now is totally immoral.
