50,000 Messi photos and 20,000 tickets. Who is robbing the Argentine fans?
According to the current news, the world champion Argentina will come to China in June to play two friendly matches. Lionel Messi and other leading players will come with the team, and the World Cup will also come to China. According to the media source Yuan Dengke, from June 15th to 16th, Argentina will play against Australia in Beijing Workers’ Stadium.
The Argentine team has a large number of fans in China, and it is also the new world champion in 2022, and it is the first person in history, Messi. Before the trip to China started, the popularity exploded. Countless fans are gearing up and ready to go to the scene to witness the style of the king of the ball and cheer for the world champion.
But the problem is coming. According to zhouyan, a media person, the ticket price of this game has been fried to a terrible level. The third-class ticket is 9300 yuan, the second-class ticket is 14200 yuan, and the first-class ticket is 19500 yuan, which is close to 20,000 yuan.
This kind of fare has exceeded the affordability of most ordinary fans. Everyone loves Argentina and Messi, but they also need to live. A ticket of 20,000 yuan is the income of many people for four months.
Someone on the Internet took the opportunity to attack and said that Argentina was poor and crazy. Now it has become a world champion and started to circle money crazily.
Of course not.
China has a huge Argentine fan base, and the fans have long been eager to see it at home. It would be best to arrange a match between the national football team and Argentina, and the benefits can be maximized. The organizer also planned this, but as early as April, the China Football Association basically finalized the warm-up match between Myanmar and Palestine on the international match day in June, and Argentina missed the match against the national football team.
So the final plan is to host it in China, and Argentina will come to China to play two games with other countries.
In this way, the interests of the organizer can’t be maximized, so in terms of fares, it will be improved and the fans will pay the bill.
Not only that, domestic scalpers will not miss this opportunity. You know, domestic scalpers have formed a complex industrial chain, which is attached to major commercial activities to drive up fares, enrich themselves and let consumers pay the bill.
At the end of May and the beginning of June, China and Taiwan Province will give six performances in the Bird’s Nest on May 9, but after the tickets were sold on May 9, the crazy scene made people stunned. The tickets for 300,000 tickets were almost gone, and most fans couldn’t get tickets. But those scalpers are selling tickets on a large scale, and the price has doubled.
Whether it is a concert, a drama or a stage play, or a football match like Argentina’s coming to China, the more important it is, the more scalpers flood in, and the more expensive it is.
Argentina’s popularity is almost the strongest in China, so it’s not surprising that their ticket price can be up to 20 thousand, but it’s just a bitter experience for fans and Messi. It costs 70,000 yuan to be able to enter the stadium and even take a photo with Messi if you want to enjoy the style of the king of the ball on the spot. The key point is that idols don’t know that everyone has spent so much money.
I still hope that the relevant departments can crack down on the scalper market and make ticket purchase fairer.
