'Football is a working-class sport, it should be affordable': Bilic slams PPV matches

by News Update

The West Brom manager, Slaven Bilic, has slammed the decision to make some Premier League football matches available via a pay-per-view service. ‘I always used to say that football is not polo, football is not golf. Football is sport for the masses … it’s a working-class sport,’ said Bilic. Currently, the cost of a match on Sky Sports’ or BT Sport’s PPV ‘box office’ services is £14.95. This was the cost of watching West Brom 0-0 Burnley, as it was not part of the regular TV schedule.

Affordable? It's not even accessible. We can't even go the ground or have a Sunday league game now.
