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.

    Ever since money has been poured into the beautiful game everyone has benefited apart from the fans this needs doing

    The price of our or what was the peoples sport has gone up to ridicules levels. Fans are a very important part of the game. How bad would it look if all the stadiums were empty? We are already seeing people priced out and stadiums not filled to capacity. Twenty is defiantly plenty when the clubs are paying out such high amounts in salaries, they are paying hideous transfer fees and been paid huge amounts of money from the TV companies. This must be the only activity that you get these sort of awards for failure. Coming twentieth out of twenty and still getting the sort of money most needed organisations such as the police, education and of course the NHS could only dream about. Indeed as we see these and the armed forces having cuts as well as our local authorities have huge cuts we see overseas footballers who have never put a penny of tax into the UK economy coming in, getting paid vast amounts that only a Lotto winner would get and then saying they want to leave after a few weeks having not performed for the club that they signed for. A British player has to come through from the lower leagues to make it. Just look how many of the England squad who have played in Euro qualification have played in the lower leagues. If clubs can afford to pay these players from abroad then and take all this money from TV then £20 is probably too much for a true going to the gamer to pay. I include all fans Home and Away. The Away fans have to travel for longer and rail fares are some of the most expensive in the world in the UK. Public transport is also not reliable and has had huge cuts since the 1980’s. They tell us to use it though because of the environment. So to those who drive, they have to go on congested roads and are then charged with expensive car parking fees or leaving their car and hoping that it will not get vandalised, not by football hooligans but by any passer by or car thief. I suppose the people who will oppose this will say that they have none of this as Geeves picks them up in the Bentley and they get a free seat anyway. The prawn sandwich dinning executives would be able to afford anyway. All they are interested is in making money and not the game. This is also why they are allowing us to have a lesser product. When did we see the real stars of the game in this country? When did we see in recent years English/British clubs win in Europe? It is not like the 80’s now when we used to win things all the time with teams made up of entirely British players. How Great or should that be Grate were the England team in the last 2 World Cups and did any of the others qualify? Yes we might be there in France next year for the Euro 2016 championship along with others but so will half the continent. The competition has grown by 50% Let us see how we do. I would be very surprised if we see a British winner. Let us face facts even with the growth of the competition it looks unlikely that all the British nations will even make it. We are watching second rate stuff and been charged well over the top to do so.

    It's about time the teams in the Premier League with their multi millionaire owners realised that not all football fans from a working class background can afford over inflated prices for away games.

    Prices for away tickets are asronomical ! In England away tickets can cost up to £300 ! In Spain and Italy prices are way lower, as low as €36 which is equal to around 20 something euro ! This is disgraceful and we have to do something about it

    Ticket prices are a huge issue in football. As a fan of Manchester United, I would like to attend some games home and away. However due to my location it would cost an excessive amount just to get the the location not including the price of tickets. The Premier League and the Football League in general should take notice of other leagues such as the Bundesliga. The ticket prices are much lower, much more affordable for those less well off, and the league still thrives. Packed stadiums, incredible away support, incredible atmosphere, but sometimes thats hard to find in england as the price of tickets alone can feel like a kick in the stomach. The amount of money which clubs make from fans is unreal. And yet they still find it appropriate to charge excessive amounts to the fans, who make football what it is, who support the club, with no need to charge such amounts in the first place. Sponsorships, Endorsments, all involve a lot of money, so why make the fans suffer and the owners wallets fatter? Astonishing.

    Having to pay £35 (which would have been £40 on matchday) to watch Town away at Leeds plus travel costs means I'm only prepared to go to away matches a couple of times a season. If it was cheaper I would be able to go many more times a season and visit new grounds.

    I enjoy football but I can not afford to watch it! It's alot more healthier to go out than to stay indoors. As someone with problems in their life it's unfair that I am unable to attend the matches.

    The need to cascade money down the leagues is proven, by all the top clubs buying foreign players in the transfer market. The foundation of any organisation is built on core values and from the ground up, neglect the roots and it will eventually wither and die

    Totally agree. Although I think more emphasis needs to be placed on grassroots football U7s to u16s kids football. I'm officially a registered coach for an U8s team, but in reality I'm a volunteering dad giving up my spare time to help kids enjoy football. Everytime I want something from the FA they want money. Coaching course ... "that'll be a £100 please" Coaching DVD .... "that'll be £15 please" Late putting in weekend game's result ... "that'll be a £10 fine, sorry" I honestly don't want a medal (as I love it) but the FA/Premier League ought to be doing everything in their power to make it easy for me (and others like me). Where are their big attractions for 2025? I'll tell you, they're playing for some U8s team somewhere

    the TV monies should be divided up a little better than it is at the moment. I appreciate that the big premiere clubs have fantastic players BUT some of them big players come from little clubs that are struggling. without some of these little clubs the big clubs wouldn`t have these fantastic players we all watch

    Sharing TV money would enable smaller clubs, if they so wish, to lower ticket ticket prices. And would also make leagues more competitive & less reliant on rich owners. It's not going to happen though. Greed is killing the the game we love. On second thoughts, why not just keep giving players like Rooney the equivalent of my teams whole seasons budget.

    This is a great cause as ticket prices are way to high I watched my local team in Germany every week in the 1St bundesliga while I lived there which was 11 euros a ticket and here it's 23 pound to watch my local team here in league 1, 2 leagues lower ! A season ticket is cheaper at Bayern Munich then at Barnsley fc how is this possible?
