Your comments

"Football games are definitely too expensive and the prices need to go down. My team, Arsenal, are too expensive and even my local team Yeovil Town are expensive and they are League One."

"I think it depends on the quality of the players."

Jamie, Aberdeen, Scotland

"I think that it is not too pricey, I only have to pay £12 to watch Cardiff."

Charlie, Cardiff, Wales

"If football prices get any higher people will eventually lose interest, especially as people are struggling with money."

Eleanor, Kent, England

"I think football match tickets should be a lot less money for children. Children under 10 should be let in for free to encourage children in the future."

Kiera, Dunfermline, Scotland

"I don't think it is expensive if people only go once in a while, but if they go to every match, then yes, it is too expensive."

Hazel, Nottingham, England

"I think football ticket prices are too expensive. Me, my brother and my dad all like football but we hardly get to go to matches because of the prices."

Megan, Bolton, England

"I think the prices of football matches should be reduced and reasonable."

Hussain, Birmingham, England

"I think prices are going up too much and these clubs are demanding too much money for a what could be a nice day out. They get enough money from selling football players!"

Libby, Shipston on Stour, England
