Premiership Football match tickets

Wednesday 2 March 2016, all day

Motion detail

“This Assembly is concerned that the rising cost of tickets for Premiership football matches will make them unaffordable for supporters in London earning an average income.

 

Previous motions by this Assembly have noted the importance of football clubs to communities and the support the Mayor has given to stadium-led regeneration to create job opportunities and improve facilities for local people. With several Premier League clubs benefiting from the Mayor’s support in building new, or expanding existing, stadiums, we now call on the Mayor to use these negotiations to make the case for clubs to ensure that tickets are affordable for all, especially those communities where the clubs are located.”
