The BBC have today released the results of their annual Price of Football study, an interesting assessment of just how much the modern fan has to pay in order to continually feed their habit of attending matches throughout the course of the 2014/15 campaign as football's transition from popular pastime to corporate behemoth continues.

As well as looking at the cost of season and regular matchday tickets, the survey - which comprises of 207 clubs from across the continent - also looks at the prices charged for other football essentials such as a programme, replica shirt, pie and a good old-fashioned cup of tea.

Premier League prices

In the Premier League, it may not surprise you to learn that Arsenal have the most expensive season tickets options, with the cheapest costing £1,014.00 and the top option weighing in at a quite staggering £2,013.00. Across London, Chelsea charge £50 for their lowest-priced matchday ticket while Tottenham's priciest stands at a cool £81.

By contrast, champions Manchester City's prices are mostly very reasonable. Indeed, the club's cheapest season ticket is the least expensive in the entire top-flight at £299.00. Manchester United, meanwhile, charge between £37 and £58 to buy a ticket on the day at Old Trafford.

But just how do these prices compare to the rest of the continent?


Whenever a survey concerning the cost of European football is conducted, the Bundesliga invariably receives high praise for its modest costs - and with good reason.

According to this particular study, the cheapest matchday ticket at reigning champions Bayern Munich is just £11.75, with their most affordable season ticket priced at £109.65. Such generosity can also be found at Borussia Dortmund, where you can a single match for £12.84 or commit to an entire campaign for £159.77.

Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen - the other German clubs questioned - boast similarly modest costs thanks to an attractive business model that many would love to see implemented on these shores.

So that's England and Germany covered, but what of Spain? At Barcelona, their cheapest season ticket sets punters back £103.38 while their least costly matchday price is £18.01. Fierce rivals Real Madrid's game prices range from £18.80 to £184.05, depending on your ability to identify to spot the small dots from the very top rung of the impressive Santiago Bernabeu.
