Default BBC price of football: Manchester United have most expensive tickets outside London

BBC price of football: Manchester United have most expensive tickets outside London

By David Dubas-Fisher

Have a look at how Manchester United rate in the BBC's annual price of football survey.

Manchester United have the most expensive season ticket outside of London.

At £950 only four other teams can boast a pricier season ticket than United - Arsenal (£2,013), Tottenham (£1,895), Chelsea (£1,1250) and West Ham (£955).

The club's cheapest season ticket (£532) is cheaper than newly promoted Bournemouth's though (£550).

United's adult matchday tickets though are comparable to the league's averages.

Their cheapest is £31, as is the league average, while the most expensive is £58, just £1 above the league average.

By contrast the cheapest adult matchday ticket at Chelsea costs £52 and the cheapest at Manchester City £42.

The most expensive match day tickets are in London. Arsenal's most expensive tickets are going for £97 each, West Ham's £95, Chelsea's £87 and Tottenham's £81.

Arsenal's cheapest season tickets have been frozen at £1,014, though are still the highest priced of each team's cheapest season tickets. They also have the most expensive season tickets in the league at £2,013.

The cheapest season ticket in the Premier League can be found at Stoke whose cheapest season tickets set fans back £294 each. Reading have the cheapest in the football league though at just £135 each.

Overall though the BBC's Price of Football Study found that the cost of watching football in Britain has either dropped or remained the same for the majority of fans.

More than 700 tickets were analysed, with 70 per cent seeing a price freeze or reduction for the 2015-16 season.

As many as 55 per cent of Premier League tickets saw their prices frozen, 12 per cent were reduced and 33 per cent were increased. Those figures don't include Swansea though as they did not take part in the study.

At £60 each, Manchester United have the most expensive adult replica shirt in the Premier League.

The average adult replica football shirt in the UK is currently £42.18.

You can calculate your individual cost of watching football by going to the BBC's website.

The costs of tickets quoted in the study are for the categories that are registered with the league and do not include individual or one-off offers. They also are reflective of prices that would be paid on the day as opposed to in advance.

Season ticket prices refer to the cheapest and most expensive tickets including early-bird offers.

Shirt prices are the prices quoted by official club shops rather than other retailers.
