The research shows that more than half of all attending fans are paying £30 or less per match, and that the average ticket price across the League is £32.
The research is the most comprehensive analysis available regarding the real cost of attending Premier League football. It has been compiled using data provided directly by the clubs, including the cost of every ticket already sold or available this season.
The scale of concessions and offers made available by clubs is laid bare in the research with 34% of all available Premier League season tickets sold below full price (early-bird offers and loyalty discount), saving fans a total of £10m across the season.
On away fans specifically, clubs have recognised their loyalty with a £30 cap on away ticket prices; a three-season agreement in place since 2016/17. The research shows that this season the average away ticket price will be £26, with 33 per cent of away tickets sold at a price below the £30 cap.
Premier League Executive Chairman, Richard Scudamore, said: “The loyal and passionate support of attending fans is hugely appreciated by clubs, their managers and players, and the Premier League.
“This research shows the excellent value clubs are offering across the League and the impressive commitment of their fans. I hope it will challenge commonly held perceptions about the cost of attending Premier League football, and encourage even more people to consider going to a match.”
This research includes all parts of Premier League stadiums, except hospitality areas, and includes all ticket types sold or available at Premier League clubs in season 2017/18. All matchday tickets include booking fees or admin charges.
Data was provided by Premier League clubs and then analysed by EY (Ernst & Young) and the Premier League.
