Two EPL teams pretty close to each other and can't fill the ground.

Aston Villa always have tonnes of empty seats at home, always visible on MOTD.

BBC gives crowd as 34,152. Capacity is 43300, so 9000 spare seats?

Ticket prices down here are scandolous. I went to see Gateshead the other week against Wrexham and it was 14, so you can guess what the big teams are charging. Football is dying, but dont panic as the EPL is still the most amazing thing ever in the whole wide world. Just a shame in 5 years time the majority of the grounds will be empty. Always empty seats at Villa, Wigan, Sunderland. Already seen it at Arsenal this term which has not happened for a while. The game is on it's knees

I got an e-mail from Ticketmaster last week offering me tickets for Arsenal v Stoke. At 53, I declined.

When you watch MOTD it would appear very few EPL games actually sell out

Was a shocking crowd. Almost as embarrassing as there only being 4,000 at the Motherwell match. *** is that all about?

Only a few miles between the few grounds( 3 or 4, not much different between that and st andrews). Villa didnt sell out against Wolves either, but neither did West Brom against Wolves. Too dear to go

Newcastle have announced that season ticket holders can buy extra tickets for each game at half price. Their attendances have been down by an average of 6,000 per game.

Ticket prices and television. Especially television.

If a match is on television you can watch it live, record it, save travel money, save admission money and save time. Live television is the main culprit. Even if not on live, many will prefer to watch highlights if it is an early kick off.

Bigfoot,
I'm a Luton Season Ticket Holder and while the 300 i paid is reasonable for 23 League Games - the cheapest match day ticket is 18 - for 5th tier level football!

My brother in law has a season ticket at the Emirates and it cost him 3,000!!!

Although it includes entry to every League/Cups & Champs League game, inc drinks - thats still outrageous.

But somebody has to pay the players 100/200,000 + weekly wages.

When that Portsmouth Landlady wins her TV case & Sky stop spending obscene amounts of cash for tv rights - The Premier League will collapse like a pack of cards.

Guys, a few years back it was Birmingham City vs Aston Villa, i was the game with my Mrs who is a big Birmingham fan, St Andrews holds around 29,000 full capacity and i kid you not there was less than 24,000 there.

Few weeks later after a few drinks in the German Market in Birmingham City centre, i had a heated discussion with 2 Bham fans when they tried telling me their Derby was every bit as big as the Old Firm, i kindly put him in his place by showing him a picture of the empty seats when i was at St Andrews, it turns out they wernt even at the game themselves, i laughed and just walked away.....

That night i was in the local police station as the two of them didnt take too kindly of me telling the truth.

I wonder what would happen if they got knocked out of every cup competition at the first hurdle? Would he get some of his money back?? Hmmmm!?
