Cost Of Football
That this House recognises BBC Sport's Price of Football survey 2012; commends the research into the various costs of going to see football at each club across the English, Scottish and Women's leagues; notes that the average cost of the cheapest adult ticket in the top four divisions of English football has risen by 11.7 per cent in the last 12 months, which is more than five times inflation; further notes that the cheapest match-day ticket at Chelsea FC costs 41 and at West Ham FC costs 36 which is unaffordably high for many fans; and calls on hon. Members to encourage people to go and see local non-league teams like Kendal Town or Barrow in the South Lakes, where ticket prices are 60 to 80 per cent cheaper; and believes that switching to support non-league clubs will boost community football whilst also bringing collective consumer pressure on the top teams to reduce their prices.
