Hi all! My name is Paul and I joined this forum to post as few threads. here is one of them:
Since the 1960s UEFA have imposed a rule that no football matches can be broadcast live on TV between 2:45 to 5:00 PM. This was because they were worried in would have an effect on match attendances and discourage people from going to matches.
However, it's still in place, despite it being temporarily removed last season, it was brought back for this season. However, I think it's time this rule was removed.
1. Away fans are limited to small number of tickets like only 2,000-3,000 tickets on average. That is only a tiny number of fans who will get to see the match live.
2. Somne fans don't have enough money to buy tickets for every game, or can't travel easily.
3. Fans who can't go to football grounds because they are triggered by loud noices. It'sd unfair they have to miss out watching a match.
4. It would not effect attendances if this rule was removed. Do YouTube concert streams attend those attendances for concerts? No!
What are your thoughts on this idea?
