blue pilgrim Posted January 14, 2015 Share Posted January 14, 2015 Eastside, in the main, I agree with your comments but of course, if you follow a team that regularly chases trophies, tickets can remain pricey LOL !!!! Like you I have shared my support between non league and the higher echelons long before Murdoch and Sky Sports decimated free to view sport in this Country. These days, I goto more non league games, and it's not just the cost of PL tickets but also the oncosts of going to such a game ( How much is a taxi to the Bridge these days ? LOL ). That said and to support your point, I have a ticket for the League Cup Semi Final which cost 25 quid face value, which compares very favourably with 10 quid to see the mighty Brightlingsea Regent in the Essex Senior Cup. ( no disrespect intended and it's a much better Club name than Liverpool HA HA) Picking up on earlier comments, I not so sure that cutting prices generally, will solve our local problems. However, a little more creativity with cup games in the week could be considered as gates often struggle into 3 figures. For example, and addressing the earlier point about fans not patronising the bar, how about a free drink token for those paying full price entrance at least 45 minutes before kick off - mines a Guinness !!
