Ticket prices shouldn't be set by the free market: don't take our word for it, here's Dr Chris Bojke senior research associate at University of York's Centre for Health Economics looks at "addictive good" provided by football clubs...
Despite the increasing high cost of attending football matches, it hasn’t gone unnoticed that demand, as measured by match-day attendance has remained pretty stable or even increased over time.
On one hand it is possible to adopt a cold hard economic perspective and argue that the persistently above inflation increases in ticket prices may better reflect the value of a match to fans: fans are under no obligation to buy tickets, so if the cost wasn’t worth it to them, then they could simply spend their money elsewhere.
