Comment from Neil Doncaster

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster insisted that every club in Scotland is "continuing to make every effort to make football as affordable as possible”. :oops:
He added: "Our game continues to go from strength to strength. Average attendances have increased across all four divisions, the League Cup and Challenge Cup for the last five years in a row.
"One in 47 people in Scotland attend an SPFL match each weekend, which means it remains by far the best attended league per head of the population anywhere in Europe.
"This underlines the value and enjoyment supporters get from Scottish football."

Comment from Tom English BBC journalist

“According to Neil Doncaster, the chief executive of the SPFL, attendances at club matches across Scotland are in decent health. He talks about the average attendances increasing across all divisions over the last five seasons. He says that the SPFL, per head of population, remains the best attended league in Europe.
There is no doubting the love of the game in Scotland. It endures through all sorts of nonsense. Accelerating ticket prices and anti-social kick-off times are accepted. It would be fascinating to see an overall satisfaction rating among football fans for their match-day experience but the fact remains that they still turn out in numbers even when barriers are put in their way.”

Follow up article from the BBC to yesterdays survey. it considers the subscription model (e.g. Netflix) as an alternative to the season ticket. FC Copenhagen offer this as an option. You pay so much per month and can cancel anytime after 6 months. Comes with other features like a discount on away games etc. SLO hope you read this and take forward but then again it would need someone with real business acumen at the club to implement. How many years for cashless?
