'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hands up if you want to see Spurs Live!

The FA Premier League was formed on 20 February 1992 following the decision of clubs in the Football League First Division to break away from The Football League to take advantage of lucrative television rights deals.

You may have heard yesterday that Sky has secured extended rights to televise Premier League Football. This season coming TV rights will be worth 3 billion as of 2013-14, with BSkyB and BT Group securing the rights to broadcast 116 and 38 games respectively. The Premier League is the most-watched football league in the world, broadcast in 212 territories to 643 million homes. In the 2010-11 season the average Premier League match attendance was 35,363, the second highest of any professional football league other than the German Bundesliga and stadium occupancy was 92.2% capacity.

The Premier League ranked second in the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) coefficients of leagues based on performances in European competitions over the last five years. Since 1888, a total of 23 clubs have been crowned champions of the English football system. Of the 45 clubs to have competed since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, five have won the title: Manchester United (12 titles), Arsenal (3), Chelsea (3), Blackburn Rovers (1) and Manchester City (1).

Adult season ticket prices for 2012-13 985-1955 (includes seven cup matches) For Spurs: .Average attendance 36,026 (+0.9% on 2010-11) .Adult season ticket prices 730 - 1,845 (up by 3.6% 5.79%) Adult matchday prices vary according to the game.Clubs in London are generally more expensive than around the country, with Arsenal (100), Chelsea (87) and Tottenham (80) having the highest cost of match day tickets in the country. However, Chelsea's cheapest ticket is 23.50. Champions Manchester United and Man City compare relatively well - United's cheapest day out is 35.60 while City's cheapest ticket is 25.

Now watching Spurs on the TV is nothing like actually being in the ground but for many fans that is about as close as you are likely to get. The League and FA Cup offer some chance but anyone who has tried to buy a Ticket on line or contact the infamous Tottenham Ticket 'Hot Line' will know that you probably have to leave for work at 8:00 in the morning, leaving the phone in the wife's hand and know she will still be holding the phone when you get back from work! Spurs are one of the most expensive teams to support. Yesterday we heard that the club had lost 32m or 12% in turnover for the last year.

At one of my sons football club games the opposing team coach saw my Spurs emblem and told me he had now reached number 7,000 in the season ticket waiting list out of 35,000. To all season ticket holders, and those that travel to away matches we all know the cost of supporting Spurs but is it right that ticket prices should be so high and so difficult to get and are many fans who truly love the club now left to watching Spurs on the big screen, and what happens if you dont have Sky? There's always Match of the Day I suppose!
