The majority of football fans who support a certain team do so out of love and enthusiasm for the item they appreciate and want to see prosper.
If you visit a football viewing facility on a weekend during a league game or on a weekday during a UEFA Champions League night, you will find the place congested and packed to the brim with fans cheering on their team. They are doing it because it is something they are enthusiastic about, not because the club would allocate a specific percentage of the income to them.
While fans' affection for their clubs is fueled only by passion, the owners and management of these teams are raking in cash.
Sponsorships, such as Jersey sponsors and ticket sales, are a steady source of revenue for the clubs. According to Sky Sports, Manchester United made £13.1 million from Cristiano Ronaldo's jersey sales in the first week after his debut.
The sale of that Jersey brought in a total of £187 million in the first seven days after his announcement as a Manchester United player, although only a portion of that money went to United's coffers. This is to describe the amount of money that fans spend simply because they care about their team.
According to The Sun UK, Premier League clubs have the cheapest jerseys among European top-flight leagues. Tottenham Hotspurs' jersey is the most costly in the United Kingdom, costing £70, while Chelsea's costs £69.95.
There are home, away, and third-kids uniforms, and many football fans invest their hard-earned money on these shirts. Not only that, but they have to buy new ones at the start of each season since the club released a new Jersey with a completely different design. Being a die-hard football fan may be quite costly.
Newcomers to the Premier League, on the other hand, Brentford has taken into account their supporters' financial circumstances. Brentford has declared that they would keep their existing jerseys for the 2022/23 season, according to ESPN and Football London. This means that Bees fans will not be spending money at the end of the season on a new shirt when the ones they have at home are only a few years old.
This is a positive step by the Bees, and it will be even more impressive if Premier League heavyweights like Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal follow suit.
