Video: The Face Of South African Football
In this weeks Editor's Column, SLTV's Clint Roper, goes over ticket prices and how empty stadiums affects the face of South African Football.
Recently, I have been talking about the poor attendance figures at PSL games of late and the first thing we are looking at is ticket prices and if it is, in fact, the barrier to attending games that we believe it to be.
It must be a complete nightmare for those teams without a main sponsor to try and convince a potential sponsor that they will get a return on their investment based on stadium attendance. If I’m a sponsor being asked for R40 million to put my name on the front of your jersey, the first thing I’m going to do is watch a game at your home ground.
That is the face of your organisation. It’s where your hard work is on display, and, for the most part, the face of most PSL clubs on match day is more of a grimace than a smile.
