UK Sports Minister ‘Concerned’ About Costs Of Football Tickets

According to an article I found at BBC Sports, Helen Grant, the UK’s Minister for Sports is concerned about the high prices for tickets.

Within just three years, the average price of the cheapest tickets across English football has gone up more than double as compared to the cost of living.

This is the result of a study where the BBC analyzed ticket prices at more than 200 clubs all across the UK.

The study found that the average price for the cheapest match-day ticket in England is £21.49. Compared to 2011 this is a steep 13% increase. In the same time period, the cost of living went up a mere 6.8%.

The Minister to the press: “I can see why fans are cross. I’m cross. The fans are the lifeblood of the game, without the fans we won’t have football the way we know it.”

She pointed out that it will cost a minimum of £130 if you plan to take your family to a premier league game. Petrol, parking, a programme, hot dogs and drinks not even included.

The Minister is urging that clubs are looking into their ticket pricing: “Not all families can afford this”, she said.

No Floodlit Races At Newcastle

NewcastleNewcastle’s organizers, ARENA Racing stated say they still want all-weather racing at Newcastle despite the British Horseracing Authority’s decision against floodlit races in the coming year.

According to the racing rules there must be two races of a mile or more of the minimum aggregate distance of two and a half miles.

Since Newcastle’s current proposal for a converted all-weather track only includes floodlights covering one mile they needed an exception of that rule.

The Horsemen’s group objected at the notion that the track will get an exception from this rule. TheNational Trainers Federation launched an online petition where they opposed the  principle of the course converted to a Tapeta surface.

Now, as a result, Newcastle will be ineligible for floodlit races later next year, but the organizers remain confident of racing taking place on an artificial surface the following year.
