Consumer Rights Bill — Commons Reason (24 February 2015)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...a few people very rich but sucks money not just from fans but from sports and arts bodies—those that want to keep prices within the reach of all, not just the rich, so that ordinary rugby club members can go to Twickenham, tennis players to Wimbledon and music fans to their favourite gigs.

Consumer Rights Bill (Programme) (No. 3): Secondary Ticketing Platforms (12 January 2015)

Andrew Bridgen: My experience of the RFU at Twickenham is that rugby tickets are given out on allocation and request to local clubs—the grass roots of rugby—at a certain price.

That was a reasonable protection that was placed on the sport.
