The BBC Sport website recently published its “Price of Football” survey which worked out the cost of enjoying a day at the football for fans without season tickets. The study identified those clubs offering supporters the best value for money, and showed where football could be watched most cheaply. The survey looked at: the cost of match tickets, programme prices, and the cost of tea and a pie.
In our study, we have reinterpreted the BBC data, and combined its findings with Opta’s statistical analysis, to try and offer some insight into value for money, this time, in terms of entertainment. By combining the two sets of data, we hope to demonstrate which clubs offer fans the best value. Not just the cheapest day at a Premier League football match, but also, potentially the most exciting one.
