This petition is now closed.

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.

    The powers-that-be are in danger of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. As a supporter I only attend games to watch a competitive match where I don't know the outcome before the game starts. I also don't want to know my team has no chance of winning the overall league they are in before the season starts. The leagues are in danger of becoming completely stratified, which means that the games will become boring and pointless - plus there is growing resentment about the obscene amounts of money Clubs and footballers are making, yet they are still screwing their supporters for money that most of them really can't afford.

    It's about time our fans are charged for tkts on a par with the European leagues, our clubs will still make a profit albeit not as much but it's better to have fans in grounds than out which is what will happen if we are continually priced out!

    Germany have the right attitude on the ticket costs. Grass roots facilities should be a priority instead of the typical short term model of paying higher and higher wages to look after oneself. Will scudsamore listen? I doubt it, he is just a puppet for the big clubs. He does not have the balls to make the right choice.

    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.
