I think it will be quite some time before people get used to attending live sporting events again.

Especially when most of our most "attractive" home games are almost always on TV.

But you don't get 12000 at £40 a go with season tickets and concessions and I am not saying Prem games should cost £15 but maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle???

Exactly SR, I suggested £10-15 as a trial for the PRC, I would think £25 would be more sensible for the league.

I agree. I am a season ticket holder and have been for over 10 years now. As i am under 25 my season ticket is still pretty good value but for a standard 1 off day out I can imagine its pricey.

..and my point is at £25 a ticket we’d need crowds of over 19,000 to maintain revenue. So unless owners are prepared to foot the shortfall for subsidised tickets, the prices won’t significantly drop.

Or we cut our costs and pay significantly under the salary cap. Remember we make a loss as things stand.

Are the fans going to cut their expectations accordingly?

Why is the football league at over average 90% capacity?
