While expressing his thoughts on the upcoming fixture against Sunderland, West Ham boss Slaven Bilic also had a few words to say regarding the “Twenty’s Plenty” protests to be staged this weekend by the Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF).
The cheapest season ticket at West Ham currently costs £620, more than the cheapest ticket at the likes of Man Utd and Newcastle.. Only Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool charge more for their cheapest season ticket. However the price is set to go down to £289 in the 2016/17 season after moving to the Olympic Park.
Football is not golf or polo for VIPs or for the elite – football is the people’s sport.
On the other hand you have clubs building new stadiums for big money and they want their money back so they put ticket prices up.
For me they should find a balance because this is a mass sport. Football games are not just about the game they are about the atmosphere at the ground. Without fans it’s useless
