EPL Boss Richard Scudamore Backs Man City Fans Who Scoffed At High Ticket Prices
Published January 14, 2013
FILLING THE SEATS: The PA's Andy Hampson reported Scudamore was asked whether, given record TV revenue, "ticket prices should be lowered at all clubs." He said that "was a complex issue," but the overriding aims of clubs should be "to ensure their stadia are full with away fans in attendance." Scudamore said: "Absolutely top of our aims and objectives is to put on a show and keep attendances full. The clubs absolutely know where the Premier League stands on this. We want full stadia. Over the last 15 years we have managed to achieve 90 per cent occupancy. This year occupancy is up at 95 per cent and could well reach an all-time high this season" (PA, 1/13).
