A monumental 97% of NUFC fans have voted that they will not be paying the £14.95 pay-per-view rate to view our game against Manchester United on the 17th October.
We ran the poll on Twitter – with a colossal 4,200 Newcastle fans getting involved to cast their vote on the controversial topic.
Here’s the final results:
Based on the mass protests seen on social media, I can’t say I’m at all surprised about this result.
The only thing I could question is how 3% of fans can see the reason in paying the extortionate fee, especially after so many of us have already been charged for season tickets and Sky Sports subscriptions!
Many of us will support Newcastle through thick and thin, spending hundreds on our seasons tickets and just as much on away days throughout the year. But we won’t be held ransom by the Premier League for a second longer.
The fee charged by these companies is ridiculous, and for the 97%, it’s crossed the line.
However hard it may be, let’s hope that the majority don’t end up paying the money – and then maybe Sky & BT will drop the insane idea.
