The Premier League is the most-watched division in world football. Clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are worldwide brands with millions of fans around the world.
Watching their favourite team inside their own stadium is a bucket-list occasion for many supporters.
While that opportunity just isn’t an option for many fans, some are fortunate enough to watch their club every single week.
Every Premier League club has thousands of season ticket holders who attend every single home game.
But how hard is it to become a season ticket holder at a Premier League club?
Well, thanks to research from Footy Accumulators, we now know the answer.
As part of a detailed study into the accessibility of the Premier League, each club has been ranked by their season ticket waiting list.
Some don’t have a list at all, while one club hasn’t opened their waiting list for 11 years!
Let’s take a look:
Premier League club’s season ticket waiting times
So, if you wanted a season ticket at Brighton, Burnley or Southampton you could get one tomorrow.
Meanwhile, three rather big clubs offer a ‘first come, first serve’ process in Newcastle, Manchester City and Chelsea.
Most Premier League clubs have a fairly short waiting list that is likely to take a few years to get to the queue.
At the other end of the spectrum, Liverpool haven’t opened their season ticket waiting list since 2011! With the way the Reds are playing, we can’t see many supporters give up their season tickets anytime soon!
In second place is Arsenal, who have a wait time of around 10 years for a season ticket. Manchester United are in third with 120,000 on the waiting list. That’s slightly more than Tottenham who have 98,000 on the waiting list.
Everton, Leeds and Aston Villa come next and all have similar numbers on their waiting list.
