?It might cost an arm and a leg to go and watch the football these days, but fans across the country are still putting their colours on and going to games in record numbers.
Sitting behind only Germany’s Bundesliga in an EPFL report on fan attendances in Europe, clubs in the Premier League are now doing their best to give something back by at least freezing prices for fans attending games.
Ahead of the new 2019/20 season, 90min has taken a look at what type of season tickets are on offer for
20. Sheffield United – £458
Promoted Sheffield United are leading the way in making their season tickets as affordable as possible for fans at Bramall Lane.
While data over their season ticket prices isn’t freely available online, the club have told 90min that their Early Bird offer sees season tickets start from just a shade over £400.
Their dearest at £513.50 is still cheaper than budget season tickets which are on offer at nine clubs in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £402.50
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £513.50
19. Burnley – £485
It’s quick to notice a clear north-south divide over the pricing from clubs in the Premier League, but Sean Dyche’s Burnley are among just three teams to offer an average season ticket for under £500 – or less than £26 per home match.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £580
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £390
18. Everton – £492.50
On the cusp of bringing European football back to Goodison Park last season, the season tickets on offer at Everton give supporters fantastic bang for their buck.
Considering the club have splashed out £333m plus change on new signings since the start of 2017 alone, the Toffees have one of the best deals on offer in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £420
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £565
17. Leicester City – £512.50
At more than half the average price of other Premier League champions, Leicester City fans are treated to one of the best deals on offer at the King Power Stadium.
And with Brendan Rodgers set to enter his first full season in charge after taking over in the
Cheapest Season Ticket: £365
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £660
16. Aston Villa – £517
They might have only just returned to the Premier League, but Aston Villa are comfortably among the biggest sides in the top flight’s 27-year history.
They, along with the four previous teams, make up the top 25% for the cheapest average season tickets in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £350
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £684
15. Wolverhampton Wanderers – £560.50
There’s a lot to look forward to for Wolves – otherwise known as
Cheapest Season Ticket: £493
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £628
14. Norwich City – £600
The last of the three teams promoted up from the Championship are Norwich City, who also break the £600 barrier for average season ticket prices in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £569.50
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £630.50
13. Watford – £609
Cheapest Season Ticket: £496
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £722
12. Newcastle United – £614
But with some on offer almost exclusively at the price of clubs fighting for Champions League football, supporters will understandably be demanding more both on and off the pitch following Rafa Benitez’s departure this summer.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £417
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £811
11. Southampton – £627
Almost slap bang in the middle of this list, Southampton also offer a premium season ticket price which is very expensive given their finish just five points above the relegation zone last season.
But for season tickets at
Cheapest Season Ticket: £399
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £855
10. Manchester City – £637.50
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. Premier League champions Manchester City have only the 10th most expensive average season tickets in the top flight.
They’ve matched their city rivals at the top end of their season ticket scale, but fans can also secure a seat at Etihad Stadium for just £325 – the second-lowest price in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £325
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £950
9. West Ham United – £647.50
City’s place on this list will likely come as a surprise for most fans, but another impressive stat is that West Ham’s London Stadium actually has the cheapest season tickets on offer in the whole Premier League.
But the club also goes from one extreme to another, offering their better season tickets for over £50 per league match.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £320
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £975
8. AFC Bournemouth – £655
There isn’t a wide range of options for fans in Dorset, but Bournemouth boast an average season ticket price which at least matches their closest rivals in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £550
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £760
7. Brighton & Hove Albion – £690
Just shy of breaking the £700 mark on average season ticket prices in the Premier League, Brighton & Hove Albion’s range of premium and budget offers are actually very well priced given the ever-growing popularity of the area.
But as they’re placing on this list’s Europa League final qualification spot, fans will be demanding a big improvement on their 17th place finish last season – just two points ahead of relegated Cardiff City.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £535
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £845
6. Crystal Palace – £705
Getting dangerously close to talking about silly money for the averages, Crystal Palace do still offer fans the chance to pick up a season ticket for as little as £31.58 per match in the Premier League.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £600
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £810
5. Manchester United – £741
Just like their local rivals, Manchester United do have to be commended for refusing to set their highest season ticket prices over £1,000 (some clubs haven’t) but with their cheapest option to sit in the gods is still more expensive than Sheffield United’s most expensive.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £532
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £950
4. Liverpool – £755
The European champions might place very high on this list, but at £755 an average season ticket at Liverpool – one of the most followed clubs on the planet – is far from
Cheapest Season Ticket: £685
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £865
3. Chelsea – £922.50
It won’t come as much of a surprise to see Chelsea at the top end of this list, with their most expensive season tickets costing fans over £65 per match in the Premier League, but the Blues do still offer their cheapest option at a better price than Liverpool and even Crystal Palace.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £595
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £1,250
2. – Arsenal – £1,329.50
Contrary to popular belief, Arsenal actually sit second as the Premier League’s most expensive team to support.
It might be cheaper to get the most premium season ticket at Anfield, but the Gunners still have an outrageously long waiting list to even be considered for a permanent seat at Emirates Stadium.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £891
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £1768
1. Tottenham Hotspur – £1,395
It’s not Arsenal, but in fact, north London rivals Tottenham who have the most expensive average season ticket prices in the Premier League.
At almost £2,000, fans could actually get season tickets at West Ham, Aston Villa, Burnley, Southampton and Manchester City for cheaper that Tottenham’s most expensive available option at their new stadium.
Cheapest Season Ticket: £795
Most Expensive Season Ticket: £1995
Data collected for match-going adults does not include discounts (family pricing, direct debit, Early Bird) on offer, excluding Sheffield United.
