BBC ‘Price of Football’ report catalogues differing UK football team ticket prices

The report found out what football fans really have to pay

The BBC ‘Price of Football’ report has found a 2.4 per cent decrease in ticket price in England’s top four football divisions.

The prices of 164 clubs from ten divisions were recorded and prices were found to have decreased throughout the UK with five leagues in England, four in Scotland and the Women's Super League being consulted.

Arsenal can still boast the most expensive adult match day ticket of £126 with their cheapest being £26.

Surprisingly, despite the huge investment in the club, Manchester City fans are being rewarded with the cheapest English Premier League season tickets with the adult season ticket costing an agreeable £299.

Incidentally, Rangers FC and Lincoln refused to answer how much a cup of tea, a pie and a programme costs. The most costly pies at an astounding £4 belong to both Crystal Palace and Kidderminster.

Sports minister Hugh Robertson, told the BBC: “It is good news for fans but it does come after a long period of incremental rises year on year.

“The key thing is that it is replicated in years to come. I think clubs are beginning to understand what fans are going through and to adjust their prices accordingly.”

And finally, if you’re looking for a cheap match day ticket, you can’t do better than Albion Rovers of Scottish League Two’s £7 ticket.
