If Premier League football clubs did a Radiohead and let you choose the price, how much would you pay?


10th, October 2007


radiohead.jpgToday Radiohead released a new album, In Rainbows, that has no fixed price – you, the consumer, decide how much you want to pay for it. It’s a remarkable ploy, and one that only a major-league band like Radiohead could get away with, but could it work for football?
Currently one can expect to pay anything between £25-£50 for a standard seat in a Premier League ground, which can seem like you’ve been massively overcharged after 90 minutes of goalless tedium.
So if the people who run football clubs decided to do a Radiohead and let you pay what you wanted to watch a match, how much would you pay? Leave a comment and let me know. It would be interesting to see if Man Utd fans, say, are willing to pay more than Middlesbrough fans…

    Nothing, just like the nothing i paid for in rainbows which im now listening to

  2. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    I too am listening to a free copy of In Rainbows Kipp, as I type. And it’s not bad at all.

  3. Kipp says:

    One might feel slightly dirty for taking it for free since it’s rather good, but i have crippling debts so really ill pay thom back in hugs

  4. OmegaSupreme says:

    I think £32 including free fish ‘n chips and a large soft drink is a good price.

  5. Stacy says:

    I have a secret crush on Kipp.

  6. Bodey says:

    depends who I was watching. if its arsenal or totenham then I would pay the full price. If its chelsea or middlesbourgh then I would feel like I deserve recompense.

  7. Kipp says:

    Secret crushes are great, if you have a secret crush on me im available for most parties at an extortionate fee
    wait no, pay what you like
    i need money :(

  8. Gamble says:

    £20-£25 for average prem, £15 for championship. Still be more than anywhere else in Europe wouldnt it? Just not takin the piss.

  9. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Shall I buy a hat, Kipp and Stacy?

  10. Kipp says:

    Yes, buy a hat, send it to me, then buy it back of ebay

  11. Kipp says:

    Yes, buy a hat, send it to me, then buy it back off of ebay

  12. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Kipp, you’re delightfully bonkers

  13. Gibby10 says:

    Ollie don’t be going all soft on us !!!
    Kipp your not a football agent by any chance ?
    How about the clubs pay us !!! Managers and players are always saying ” it was the 12th man that won it for us tonight” Surely we should qualify for some sort of win bonus .
    £20-£25 a ticket for Prem
    £15 – £25 for SPL
    What do the Prem charge for Chumpions league ?

  14. Kipp says:

    Well gibby i have a few exciting prospects on the horizon and if they’re as good as they are in FM i’m due a large pay cheque,
    that is if they’re unrepresented, and i can kill zahivi

  15. nathan says:

    i live in uruguay and pay 1 dollar which would work out to be peanuts for you guys. however i would not have a problem paying 25 quid for a english match….you guys dont understand how lucky you are to be able to watch live and wonderful football. i must say that i do not agree with the goalless tandem statement, check the scores, there is hardly a match in the EPL that ends up 0-0…

  16. Stacy says:

    One Big Mac Meal for Kipp. I’d throw in a hot apple pie if he comes with a hat.

  17. Jim says:

    £25 Adults, £12.50 for kids. This should be the fixed price for all prem clubs, seeing as most of the matchday revenue these days comes from domestic and foreign broacasting rights. Example: Last sunday’s game between Sunderland and Arsenal. Sunderland fans somehow had to make it down to north london before the lunchtime kickoff and still had to pay through the nose for an away ticket. Why is that? because the true fans come second to the new fans in the far east.

  18. Kipp says:

    Unfortunatley i wouldnt eat a big mac meal if i was going to be shot in the lung if i didnt
    i’ll stick to this minestrone soup
    mmm italiany
    and im eating it out of a hat! Who’d have thought!
