As if extortionate ticket prices weren’t bad enough, top flight football clubs are charging over the odds for a pint. This blatant profiteering should not continue to go unnoticed.
When will Premier League football clubs learn to stop taking their loyalty for granted?
The national average for a pint is £2.76, with only Wigan charging less than that, whilst Chelsea are charging £1.24 above the country’s average.
Is this another case of football clubs exploiting their fans, or should fans pay more for a pint during a game?
Lucky for you guys you can buy beer at the stadium, here in Brazil is banned. But 4 quid for a pint is a bit over the top.
4 pounds for a pint isn’t that bad. At baseball game here in the USA they charge $8 (5.5 pounds) for a beer (less than 3/4 of a pint). You guys are lucky.
