Would you spend $250 to watch a Real Madrid training session? And there’s no guarantee of even on autograph at that price.
Ticket prices for actual games are similarly eye-popping considering they are little more than glorified training sessions. And to top it off, Manchester United’s attitude toward Saturday’s Galaxy exhibition game is more than a little underwhelming if not insulting.
