AVFC Still Amongst Cheapest For Ticket Prices

A very self explanatory table done by AOL Money....

forum

As the article points out (click the table for the link) there seems to be absolutely no benefit to fans from the massive tv deals the Clubs have done for the forthcoming seasons.

The Premiership really is a bloated fat cat of a league now. As someone on the facebook part of Vital Villa said when I put up the prices, no one is forced to go, but that is hardly the point is it? They know they have a certain percentage of fans with 'mugs` tattooed on their heads because of the loyalty us fans show.

Some of the prices are just out of this world, I`d not be able to justify paying what some do, I`m sure many aren`t able to and have had to walk away.

Villa are still amongst the best price wise, then again as also pointed out by some in the discussions, we could hardly charge massive money for the 'entertainment` we serve up!

So no tv money benefit for fans, the article points out that in fact 13 of the 20 teams have put up the prices for the 2014/15 season.

According to Sporting Intelligence, clubs will collect 5.5billion over three years from 2013-16 from such deals.

Unbelievable isn`t it? You would think the Clubs could have caught on to the German league stance, charge lower prices, fill the grounds. Then again, some of the top clubs here charge what they want and still fill the grounds. As said, a bloated league and also a broken one now, and with the fair play rules in place, it is even more unbalanced.

Happy days!

in actual money ok but value for money I don't think so

Living overseas I'm not a season ticket holder so in some ways am not qualified to comment, but from a business perspective the Villa increase seems fair enough - a fairly standard 3% CPI increase which is no doubt in line with inflation. Still maintains us as one of the cheapest in the league by some margin.
