Newcastle United fans against Premier League club greed

My Story

The tone-deaf, immoral decision of 19 of the 20 member clubs of the Premier League to vote through a £14.95 pay-per-view charge for football matches is a disgrace.

In this time of financial uncertainty for so many and with football fans already not allowed into grounds and paying extortionate prices for TV packages, for clubs to take advantage of the current situation has shown their colours.

Like many Newcastle United fans have already suggested, we will not be paying the £14.95 fee to watch our team play next weekend and will donate this money to a far worthier cause instead.

We urge other fans to join us and send a message to Newcastle United and the other 18 clubs who wanted this - that football fans are not there to be exploited in order to fund their transfers and wages.

£15 will feed three families for a week.

Our club (and the others) have clearly lost sight of what is important and who is important. Well, we haven't, and if you can afford it please show them exactly what this fanbase is all about. Generous Geordies.
