Average ticket price for a Premier League match dropped to £31
The average cost of a ticket for a Premier League match dropped to 31 pounds in the current season, it is one pound less than a year earlier.
According to Sky Sports, most fans attend Premier League matches at less than 30 pounds. However, only 3% of fans pay for tickets over 60 pounds.
The price of tickets for away matches deserves a special mention – more than a quarter of these tickets are distributed at a price of 26 pounds or less. The average cost of an away ticket is £28, but some of them are available even for £5.
The head of the Premier League, Richard Scudamore, who will leave this post at the end of the calendar year, said that the clubs’ hard work to increase the occupancy of their stadiums, as well as dedication inherent to English fans, allowed to fill venues at more than 96% for the fourth year in a row.
The clubs offer fans a wide range of tickets at different prices so that anyone can afford to go to football. Scudamore hopes that the research will help the fans to understand more about how their contribution helps their favourite teams and encourages others to purchase their first-ever tickets to the stadium.
