Arsene Wenger believes there are many factors why young people are not attending football games.
A recent survey conducted by the BBC revealed that 82% of 18-24-year-olds feel that they have been priced out of watching football.
In addition, the poll suggests that only one in four fans watch football at a stadium more than once a month.
Wenger believes that a number of factors are contributing to this, including the price of attending matches and the availability of other activities.
The results are a reflection of the widening gap between football and the fans.
Wages in the UK remain static, yet football prices have stayed ridiculously high despite Premier League clubs getting richer through television revenue.
The issue isn’t immediately noticeable at the Emirates Stadium, which is often close to capacity regardless of how many regulars decide not to go.
Arsenal aren’t doing much to ease the financial burdens on fans in general, nevermind the younger generation.
Their season ticket prices remain the highest in the Premier League, while the average cost of a regular match ticket also stays very high.
As one of the richest clubs in the country, it’d be nice to see the club take the initiative on this issue.
