Peterborough United have become renowned over the years for taking young and hungry footballers and making them into millionaires, selling them on for a big profit. This has seen the club grow and improve and, after winning the Johnstones Paint Trophy earlier in the year, they could find themselves back at Wembley with the League One Play-offs.
The Family Stand
 
Tickets for the first leg of the Peterborough United play-off match at London Road went on sale today and some of the young fans are learning early that loyalty counts for nothing.
 
Eight year old Posh fan Jake Soley-Cripps has had a season ticket for the past three seasons now, sitting in the same seat for every home game along the way. The youngster will sit in his seat for the Play-off semi-final first leg once again on May 10, but it will come at a price, as he will have to pay more than double of what some fans will pay.

It has been confirmed that tickets for the Main Stand London Road Enclosure, where the young boy sits, are on sale for £12, even for a boy who has been going to every home game for three seasons. However, if you are a fan under the age of 16 who has never been to a Peterborough United game in your life, you can buy a ticket for the Family Stand for just £5.
 
Jake's mother Stacey Cripps said, "I've been coming to Peterborough United games for 22 years now, my dad even longer than that, while my brothers also come to matches. We have ploughed thousands of pounds into the club over the years, but where is the loyalty to us? It's the principal of the matter!"
 
Long gone are the days that football clubs really cared about the supporters, which once again goes to show that football is now all about business and lining the pockets of those at the club.
