Soaring football ticket prices as other expenses rise during this cost of living crisis is causing football fans to act with a new page being set up on Twitter with the handle of @TwentyPlentySco. 

They have been set up in order to campaign for affordable tickets across Scottish football with a maximum ticket price costing all away fans £20 with further access options.

A graphic was displayed on Twitter yesterday by the Vogue CSC which showed that last season, if you were fortunate to follow Celtic across the country as well as games at Hampden you would have shelled out a whopping £733.00 over the course of the season with a league average ticket costing £31.74

Other tickets are already on the rise with the price of a ticket for Dingwall going up by £3 well before you’ve taken into account money for transport as well as food or drink.

The only way that there will be any change on ticket pricing or accessible access to buy tickets is if supporters across the country pull together to try and change things.

On accessibility, there are clubs at present which do not have online ticketing sites meaning that fans who do not live close to their home stadium may not be able to purchase tickets.

This campaign is not a new thing to Celtic fans as ‘Bhoys’ only a few seasons back launched a twenty’s plenty campaign which was backed by the Celtic Trust.

There needs to be some sort of action taken before fans our priced out what was once known as the working mans game.
