Is MDC More Popular Than PSL Just Because It's Free?

It is no state secret – the primary struggle of a PSL game is getting bums on seats. While at the same time, the PSL’s younger brother, the MDC achieves just that. The easy answer is because entrance to MDC games is free, but is that all there is to the story?

PSL games are relatively expensive. However, one wonders, if PSL games were free would they have the same attendance as MDC? Is there mrore at play? Where does the entertainment factor come in? And where does location play a role?

 “It’s entertainment and free” - alecsyie

 “MDC is real kasi flavour and entertainment PSL is ping pong and dull draws.” – Mandz Fuze

 “MDC/kasi tournament entrance are free but even if we have to pay surely you’ll see full house due to kind of football that is displayed there cant wait for Discovery and Mahlobo games!! As for PSL games, hai cha only few Teams can attract us.” – Sunday funday

“PSL games u pay for tickets, and MDC tickets for free. Even if PSL games tickets were for free the stadiums will still be empty because there is no flair no crowd pullers. I am telling u if Festive tournament had the tickets being for sale the grounds would still be packed coz of entertainment.” – Genito Ndofaya

 “Differences are as follows: MDC produces flair while PSL produces boring plays. MDC is full of goals, PSL has goal drought. Only Ndoro can score and u know exactly that PSL is about Ndoro, Billiat, Dolly, Laffor, Phala, Brockie, Klate, Mabunda and as for my beloved Khosi it is only about Khune and Gordinho and Mathoho and Maluleka and Ekstein. As for the rest are bunch of losers. MDC has plenty of skillful players given the freedom to excel while PSL skillful players are given restrictions from their European coaches in the name of tactics, which is what we as supporters like to see, the flair and skills. MDC always has surprise packages of unknown and young developing players while PSL has old COWS such as my beloved Bernard Parker, Thamsanqa Gabuza.” – Julius Mosehla

An interesting question to raise here is; why are PSL games not free if they are practically empty anyway? Even better, why not make the tickets as cheap as R10.00? It would probably result in more money for all parties involved. A little bit of experimenting can't result in any less supporters, surely?

Is the price of entrance the only thing that makes MDC more popular to watch live?
