From Popular Stand

icon ticketprices30 October ~ Earlier this year the BBC Price of Football survey suggested that the cost of attending matches is falling, down two per cent on last season. While much has been made of the price of tickets over the past year, clubs are still charging upwards of £30 for second-tier matches. As the Popular Stand blog points out, when prices of rail tickets go up, people campaign outside stations and when pubs raise their prices locals often go to drink elsewhere. However, football supporters have allowed price increases to happen and it won't be until fans stop paying them that something will change.
