Mansfield Town Season Tickets Revealed To Be More Expensive Than Man City, Stoke & West Ham

The 2016 edition of the Price Of Football report has been published by BBC Sport. The report compares prices for matchday tickets, season tickets, replica shirts and even the price of a pie.

The report shows that supporters of League Two side Mansfield Town have paid £330 for a home season ticket this season. This is more expensive than the cheapest available at Manchester City (£299), Stoke City (£294) and West Ham United (£289).

Mansfield Town fan Liam Hyland said: “Disgraceful, but I understand that we have to up the price to try and make a profit because we get such small crowds.”

While fellow Stags supporter Connor Wigley added: “Smaller clubs rely on season tickets as a vital source of income”.

Elswhere in the report, it was revealed that the most expensive Arsenal season ticket comes in at £2013. Working out at £105 per Premier League game. Based on last season’s data, it’s worked out that fans are paying £32.71 for every goal they see their team score at the Emirates.

Elsewhere in the EFL, Sheffield Wednesday were revealed to have the most expensive replica shirt at £55 and matchday ticket price at £49.

Owls season ticket holder Adam Parsons said: “It works out a lot cheaper if you get a season ticket, but it is bad. It’s probably the reason we don’t sell out the ground, even when we’re doing well.”

Huddersfield at the other end offered their fans the greatest value for money, offering the cheapest season ticket in the league at £179.
