Liverpool v Man UTD friendly in Bangkok, cop a load of the ticket prices


Recommended Posts

Bleurgh. 

 

If they could, they'd have half of their league matches abroad each season. 

 

The top 6 or so of this country is absolutely rank. 

 

On one side, you've got the dirty money from Russia, Dubai etc. 

 

On the other side, you have these American owners desperate to turn the PL into another version of the NFL.

It's between $85 to $229 Australian Dollars to watch Manchester United v Crystal Palace at the MCG according to Ticketek

 

Plus the standard $7.95 handling fee, which I assume will be applied

 

Via the exchange rate, it's about 140 quid to watch Man Utd v Crystal Palace in a friendly match.

It's all very Harlem Globetrotters esque.

 

Plus, having Man U v Liverpool in an exhibition match just seems wrong from a footballing rivalry point of view, right? 

 

They're meant to hate each other, aren't they? 

 

I know it is the most boring, often most over hyped match on the planet but still.

There was supposed to be an Old Firm game in Sydney in July, but Rangers have withdrawn from it. I think tickets were starting at about $40 for that game. But honestly it’s probably a good thing it’s not going ahead. No experience here in crowd control for a game like that in this country.

It's a business.

 

People will pay those prices and will enjoy the "atmosphere". 

 

It won't be REAL fans of course, just supporters from afar.

 

But is it that different to NFL fans from the UK/Europe going to watch NFL games at Wembley or Spurs?

No, but we don't want English football to turn into the NFL.

No way the average thai person can afford those prices

The real winners there are the people and residents of Sydney. Saves their city getting smashed up which it would do even for a friendly. 
 

🤣 Apparently the Zombie Tribute Act are facing a £5m bill for pulling out.

To be fair that is completely different. The NFL games are fully competitive and part of the actual season. These games involving the English Premier League teams are a training exercise and a glorified kick about.

you sure ?  £510 per month more like.

I’m as sure as two sources on google.  It surprised me, I was expecting it to be a lot less.
