Though Rayo Vallecano are enjoying a bit of success, currently sitting 8th in La Liga after winning promotion last season, many of their fans are not. With Spain's unemployment rate the highest in Europe at almost 23 percent, Rayo have decided to offer tickets to Saturday's big match against Real Madrid (a match that wasn't included in season ticket packages) at a discount to fans without a job.
From the AP:
Rayo says it will make 1,000 tickets available at the price of €5 to unemployed supporters for the crosstown derby with the Spanish leaders.
Ticket prices for regular members remain between €20 to €25 as the club hopes to fill their Vallecas Stadium.
If Rafa Benitez were a Rayo fan, he would totally take advantage of this deal.
