£12 is an absolute disgrace for this level - annoyingly Merstham and Havant are on the small list of grounds in this league I haven't been to! Definitely won't be going to Staines, greedy bastards finished as low as we did last season, how they can justify that is beyond me...

EDIT - Cheers for info Steve....

In the main it looks to be the relegated Conference South teams that are charging the higher prices.

I imagine this is either to fund existing hefty contracts or to support the cost of a promotion push back to the higher level.

My impression last season was that Merstham were splashing the cash on players and look to be continuing in the same vein this season. Today's Pitchero news reveals that they have signed Xavier Vidal. He was one of Dulwich's best players and was signed by Welling while they were in the Conference National. Apparently he was out on loan last season to Hemel Hempstead.

I imagine Merstham must have some wealthy backers to afford this sort of outlay and presumably will be going for promotion this season.

Staines must be throwing a bit of cash around as they've got our old mate Jefferson Louis there now....

On a personal level it will cost those clubs taking liberties anyway, as I'll go and pay my £12, and then not buy any food/drink, not drink in their bar, and my total spend at their ground will be £12 rather than the usual £20-£25 for clubs that aren't taking the piss.

That's exactly what I do, and what I advise others to do. And don't give the correct change at the turnstile, give a £20 note and make them give out lots of change, then if the turnstile operator moans just say "well, if you only charged a tenner like everyone else ...."

It's more understanable clubs coming down from the higher level not wanting to drop their prices when they've already been charging £11/£12 (although still no real reason why they shouldn't for an inferior level) but for the likes of Merstham to increase the price from £10 to £12 in only their second season at this level is taking the proverbial. Then some people will say "well, it's only a couple of quid". It's a 20% increase. Imagine if everything you bought went up by 20% next month: 70-80p on the price of every pint at the pub; 10p on a pint of milk etc. Or a 20% increase in rent and utility bills! Anyone had a 20% pay rise recently?

Yup, I made this same point a while ago (about 2008/9?) when some clubs went from £8 to £10 - a 25% increase at a time that the economy was falling to pieces was wholly unjustifiable.

£12 for this level of football is utterly ridiculous and I will be doing the same as yourself ,PP, and Paul if I go to any of the games where I'm being charged more than a tenner. Admission only - no programme, 50/50, drinks or food. I can understand to a point those clubs coming down from a higher level charging £11 or £12, and I don't know what Staines were charging last season - but Merstham and Harlow?!

Staines and Farnborough charged £12 last season. Lewes was £11. Apparently St Albans (in Conference South) charged £15 (FIFTEEN!) last season. They only just avoided relegation - wonder whether they'd have kept that price had they ended up in our league? The general trend is usually for one or two clubs to charge over the odds, then the following season lots of others follow suit. Not sure why Merstham's price has to go from £10 to £12, as opposed to £10 to £11. I'd be interested to have sat in on whatever meeting of club officials came to that decision.

When the norm was £8 in D1S a few years back I'd generally hand over a tenner on the gate then use the change to buy a programme; once it became £9 and was no longer enough change to buy a programme I just stopped buying them. These days I don't normally buy a programme unless it's a club I haven't visited before, and I rarely bother with League and County Cup ties whereas a decade ago I'd go to everything.

I can only agree about the prices £12 fo a match is to high.
In Sweden the highest league coast about £18-28 for one match (seated) standings is about £10 for most matches. But then if you wanna see the derby against Malmö it coast £20 for a standing ticket and at least £35 for a seat at the match .

Then other citys might have other prices but I think most is around these prices.
But they strange thing is that it is diffrent depending on what team they meet.
