After being here for 18mnths now, can some please explain to me why football (soccer) is so expensive over here compared to other sports?
As a coach in the Uk my players paid £120 per season that included all match fees and a kit which was supplied by a sponsor. Over here the team that I coach charge $580 next season.
Now I know some are cheaper than that, around the $400 but also some teams in the city charge $1000.
It just amazes me were all the money goes; other sports such as AFL and cricket are reasonably priced.
Why in Oz is football so expensive, any ideas out there
