The Premier League has signed a new TV mega-deal worth £5.14bn, and that’s just for UK rights. The increase from the last domestic deal alone equates to £40+ for every fan, at every game; top-flight clubs have to bring down ticket prices and support lower-league/grassroots football. There are five billion reasons why clubs should #shareTVwealth!

Fans demand that clubs:

  1. Drop prices for home fans;
  2. Commit to the FSF’s Twenty’s Plenty away price cap;
  3. Redistribute more wealth to support lower-league and grassroots football.

Important! Please make sure to SELECT A CLUB below. This triggers an email to them and the relevant league outlining your support for lower prices/redistribution of TV wealth throughout the pyramid. It's a vital step in this campaign as the PL and FL always insist that clubs hold the power.

    There are people making obscene amounts of money out of football. Mostly the players. This, at a time when people doing decent jobs are struggling to pay the bills. At a time when healthcare workers haven't had a pay rise for years. I love my football club and the team, but footballers do not have a job that deserves this amount of money. Sky and the Premier League are feeding the beast of celebrity which subsequently devalues professions such as teachers, doctors....people that help society everyday. Paying for these ridiculous football salaries are the supporters. It really saddens me I can't afford to take my children to football very often, unlike when I was a child and my mother and grandfather before me. Massive amounts of money exude the Premier League at the same time football clubs in lower divisions are struggling to make ends meet and at risk of going out of business. The money makes the Premier League bring in players from all over the world....too any foreign players must be having a detrimental effect on our national team. Football matches in the premier league are now often (especially the richest clubs) attended by a large proportion of "tourists" or corporate people - people with no history or passion for the club. People who are deadly quiet and don't add anything to the atmosphere of the game. Hence the lack of atmosphere at places like the Emirates and Stamford Bridge. Sky and the Premier League are turning our national historic game into mere TV entertainment - not the passionate Saturday afternoon sport that the working class loved getting involved in every week in their local community.

    ticket prices are too high. Also lack of atmosphere at matches could be remedied by return to standing areas, allowing flags into stadiums, reducing away ticket prices in order to increase away attendance.

    My club charge in 3 price bands, £16, £35 & £50 depending on the opposition. Why? Each game is 90 minutes & worth 3 points. What's the difference?

    the latest tv deal is disgusting, in a time when more and more people are struggling to make ends meet clubs still keep squeezing them for every penny and clubs in the lower divisions are forced to survive on a shoestring, there's enough money in the game to ensure no club has to go out of business and fans can get into grounds for a reasonable price time for everybody to make a stand against these leeches

    This new TV deal dwarfs income from ticket sales so there is no justification for the continuation of the current rip-off prices. A small fraction of the new deal would allow affordable tickets to be made available.

    Used to go to watch the football every week but got priced out years ago. No wonder footballers get depression after they finish there playing days they hit the reall world which is hard and expensive. Where it's good to have bt and sky battle it out and paying top whack this should be spread out through out the leagues so fans can reap some rewards. Stadiums are getting less people in soon they will be empty as people can not afford to go. Does a player really need to be paid so much a week.

    It's time the fat cats of football in this Country realised that the fans are pig sick of the big boys creaming it all in, sick of over paid prima dona's earning obscene money while us mere mortals struggle to make ends meet, just like to lower league clubs at the grassroots of football. Money is killing the game for the working man in this Country!!!!

    I think it's about time share the wealth that's floating around the game with the people who make the game. The people without whom the game would die. The fans and grass-roots coaching and lower league clubs. Without these the game is nothing and we want to feel part of it again and not a commodity.

    Clubs do not need £45+ off fans for games anymore, fans are the blood of a club and if fans did not exist, television money would not exist. £20 price cap for both home and away games would be just about reasonable.

    Reduce the prices and subsidise travel for televised games, these are sometimes lower attended especially the monday night games, impossible for fans to get to and from games with silly kick offs more time off work.

    Football ticket prices are obscene. The TV revenue for the premier league renders ticket income practically negligible to clubs. At the very least season tickets and tickets for away fans already spending money on their travel and their season tickets at their own clubs should be priced affordably. Let the fans spend the difference on food or merchandise instead should they so wish. The club still benefits after all.

    Prices in the Premier League are now beyond ridiculous, especially if you follow a bigger club and have to suffer the 'Cat A' price rip off every time you travel. There are now 7 away games I refuse to attend purely based on ticket price as I wont pay more than £50 and that number is increasing every season. In a couple of seasons I'll have been priced out of going to away games all together due to the sheer greed of the top flight clubs. This madness has to stop, the game is being taken away from the people who SHOULD matter the most, the fans.
