    Well done to them, let's hope a reduction in ticket prices is next and they back the twenty's plenty campaign.

    It had better go towards the fans who attend the games & not more of these 3g pitch rubbish as we'll still charge people £80 an hour to rent them.

    On Stefan's link it says "Fan engagement and match day experience" so hopefully.

    I wonder if that applies to sub-contractors. You'd hope so

    "Worth noting it'll cost Premier League clubs under £1 million each to pay living wage. Drop in the bucket for clubs, huge help to employees."

    Agree, should have backed it up with a statement of intent about fans/ticket prices.

    Why can't a % of every transfer go to grass roots football??

    The club i train my U15's get a new 3G pitch in 1 weeks time.
    No more training on grass/mud.
    I for one is chuffed to bits, you try playing a passing game in 2 inch of mud/cold water. You cannot....................

    We have to start somewhere and since I've started to put something back INTO grass roots football, you are able to see where we are lacking as a nation.
    Just wish it did not cost so much to carry out your FA coaching awards (Club is paying for it)

    Nice one, well unless you're a keeper diving on them. Do you have to pay for it?
     
  14. Just to point out that despite the £1bn Mark being passed, it's actually gone down pro rata

    The new TV deal went up 70% from £3bn to £5.136bn

    Money 'donated' (as they put it) by PL has not gone up by same rate but by 40% from £700m to £1bn

    So the gap between the Premier and the lower divisions has actually widened?!
     
  16. Is your glass half full or half empty?

    He didn't have to do it, and he's right - £1bn is unheard of

    Then again when you break it down, a lot of this will be parachute payments (which are designed to boost relegated clubs so they are competitive if they come back to the PL)

    There is a lot of rhetoric, there is a lot more they could do. They would say how much is enough? That they do much more than any other league or country. Also why should they bail out central Govt who since the 1950s have abjectly failed to protect our grassroots facilities

    Sadly, it does not. Full time employees only.

    What sub contractor will be on less than the living wage?

    From a personal point of view I'd like ticket prices to be more affordable for away fans. I really want us to achieve promotion but the consequence would be dealing with a pricing structure that limits the number of away games I could attend. Newcastle's game at Liverpool has been moved from the Saturday to Monday 13th April (k/o 8:00 pm) for SKY coverage and the away fans are being charged £52 for a part of the ground with a very poor view. This is on top of a road trip exceeding 150 miles and for many having to take time off from work. I guess they will probably still sell most/all of their allocation but it's excessive nonetheless.

    Changing tack slightly I write sales proposals to local authorities as well as private sector clients. Many of the Local Authorities proudly boast of paying the living wage to their employees. If you try submitting a bid paying your workers/subbies living wage you will invariably lose on price...in reality the 'minimum wage' is actually the going rate and in effect the 'maximum wage' for services which local authorities (and football clubs) contract out...cleaning, catering, security, car park management etc.

    oh yeah.

    3G is definitely the way forward. Accessing the pitches to start with might be an issue as might cost but it's a million miles better than old style astro turf. I coach under 13s and even though they are told not to once we play on grass (Sept-Oct and Mar -May) the big lad boots it to the other big lad and that's the default approach. Between Oct and Mar we play on 3G and we turn into Barcelona academy - well kind of.
     
  23. Won't we have to change the term 'grass roots football' with the increase of 3G pitches..?

    Typical of the FA - don't they know that 4G is the norm now, cheapskates, I bet they're still on Nokia phones as well.

    I work in Amsterdam quite frequently. Whenever I fly in late evening, the amount of people playing football is astonishing. Loads of floodlit pitches.

    It's just so expensive though. Used to play on a Wednesday night. 12 of us paying £10 each. That's £120 for one hour (unless the organiser was scamming us), multiply that with the amount of pitches there are used every day/night it's a lot of revenue for not a lot of work...particularly when the land is usually cheap because it cannot be built on.

    Why don't the FA create their own subsidised facilities?

    Apologies for this, but a friend asked me too.

    https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9Q2JLKX

    Near the end of his university assignment and has asked if people could fill this in, shouldn't take too long and a fairly interesting topic.

    Thanks in advance.
