Spiralling costs are putting top-level sport out of reach

Jonathan Liew bemoans how top level sport is being priced out of many people's reach.

"As tickets become increasingly unaffordable, the experience of attending sport now seems to be reserved for a select few"

"a whole generation of people – disproportionately young, disproportionately non-white – is being walled out, priced out, cut adrift?"


Charlton's matchday adult ticket price starts at £24, although season ticket prices mean that anyone likely to attend thirteen or more games will make savings by buying a season ticket.
