With this week seeing the annual of the BBC’s Price of Football survey, we take a closer look at just who gives you the worst value for money when it comes to a football day out.
We’ve took their highest priced match ticket, along with the prices of a programme, pie and a cup of tea to give us our results. Best get your cheque books at the ready if you’re an Arsenal or West Ham fan!
Take a look as we reveal the top five most expensive days outs from the Premier League down to League Two.
5. Liverpool – £68.40
The Merseyside club top the list outside of London, just pipping both Manchester teams. It’ll cost you £59 to watch the Reds at what can only be described as a construction ground at the minute, as a new mega-sized main stand is well underway at Anfield. Tea drinkers look away now though, £2.50 for a brew might just be worse value than the match ticket.
Match ticket: £59
4. Tottenham – £90.20
Spurs are next on the list as they charge £81 for their most expensive ticket – a figure which would alter when they finally move from White Hart Lane. It’s hard to justify these prices with the disappointing past few seasons.
Match ticket: £81
3. Chelsea – £93.50
A bit of a surprise that the well-off West-Londoners aren’t top of this poll. Their dearest match ticket will set you back £87, but they do have the cheapest cup of tea in the Football League, so swings and roundabouts hey?
Match ticket: £87
2. West Ham – £104.30
The Hammers have narrowly avoided top spot after results show they charge £95 for their dearest ticket. Add this to your three necessities and you’re paying over the century mark. There are some £25 tickets available though so your bubble’s not burst completely if you want to watch West Ham.
Match ticket: £95
1. Arsenal – £106.50
The Gunners come in at a staggering £97 for their most expensive match day ticket, and no this isn’t hospitality. Add in the usual programme, pie and tea and your wallet will be lighter to the tune of £106.50. It is worth mentioning that it’s not all doom and gloom at the Emirates though, there are some cheaper seats available at £27 (If you’re quick enough to grab one)
Match ticket: £97
