Post Swansea City AFC
Another good win for the Swans. They got 13,264 in the rain which isn't too bad. How do Swansea soccer ticket prices and Ospreys ticket prices compare? Still don't get why the third division gets more support than one of the top ten European sides?

True-is the ground effectively segregated still for soccer games?

Sorry I meant to say that football is just way more popular than rugby.

Ticket prices football is more expensive.

As for segregation, makes for a far superior atmosphere.

Fotoball always has and always will attract more fans than rugby.

More aspect should be made of the dual membershi[p of it all

If only we could transfer support of the welsh national side to the regions. lets look at it this way you could prob sell the millennium stadium twice over at least for any decent game and even the shitty games these days attract 50,000. so why cant we manage more than about 5,000 at the regions- that's only 20,000 each week where are the rest? we need the same enphusiam week in week out (I know its not going to happen) just on some scale though would help the regions and in turn the national side. ticket prices are defo a big influence £15 to watch a game every week is alot especially when you add in the cost of travel and drinking :D . seriously though went to a game in New Zealand when I was there and I had very decent tickets for about a fiver, the atmosphere was great a real family occasion kids wife's the lot, even the food and drink was cheep in the ground so all in all a really good family day out. That's what we need here but will never ever get too greedy see!

we can ALL associate with our National team, and feel some national pride in our country. This doesn't travel down to regions. I feel more association with my village than my region. If the region went I would be saddened, if my village club went I would be gutted. I never miss a club game!

Thats very, very cheap for top flight football!

BTW, it costs only £5 for me to walk to St. Helens to watch the Whites (standing) and £13 + travel (cheap seats) to watch the Ospreys...
