Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness Lashes Out at Soaring Premier League Tickets
Bayern Munich President Uli Heoness has slammed Premier League clubs for sky-rocketed match ticket prices. He likened it to "milking their fans like cows" and also explained Bayern Munich's philosophy to keep the ticket prices as low as possible.
"In a transfer discussion you argue about the sum for five minutes. But the difference between €130 and €380 is huge for the fans."
He ruled out the idea to make profit off match tickets. "We could charge more than €130 (£104). Let's say we charged €380 (£300). We'd get €2.5m (£2m) more in income, but what's €2.5m to us?"
It should be noted that Arsenal's cheapest ticket for the 2014/14 season will be available for £985 and the most expensive one at £1,955 . Liverpool's and Chelsea's season ticket will cost £710 and £595 respectively.
