Real Cost Of Being A Football Fan

Real Cost Of Being A Football Fan

From August to May football fans endure a rollercoaster ride as their team's battle it out for domestic dominance and European glory.

With season ticket prices rising year-on-year, experiencing the highs, the lows, the injuries and the penalties doesn't come cheap. Add to that the cost of a new shirt, a pint at each game and travel, and supporting your team suddenly becomes an expensive business!

This got us thinking about which team offers the best bang for your buck in terms of the cost per goal and cost per win, based on the price of a season ticket.

Don't usually put this sort of thing up but think this is nicely presented and well researched, top stuff!

yep and we only have to do 2000 miles to cover all the away fixtures , one advantage to being a midlands club .

21% home wins, worst in the league unless my eyes are failing?

lowest home goals per game too. And the cheapest season tickets in the entire league - though it does state that its based on the lowest price available - £925 for Arsenal!

One of the main reasons why I stopped coming, fed up of being taken for a mug.

Agree suffolk, you can be loyal all you want but you are the one who earns the money and ultimately we had to put up with borderline torture last year...Hopefully this year is different, anything like last year and I'll be away for some time.

Wish my season tickets were only £325 as is the price stated in this example. That said, as a Villa supporters we will be their again come rain or shine. No doubt there will be some fans who are not as loyal or as passionate about the club and who have stopped coming. As p.avfc says, you earn your money so you choose how to spend it. However the thought of being in the house, on the golf course, gardening, shopping or what ever else whilst the Villa are playing at Villa Park is a thought I cannot comprehend. The joy at success is measured against the despair at failure. Just turning up when things are going well is not really my idea of support.

last season was a nightmare pride of lions. But there is satisfaction in knowing that the fans that still attended played a very vocal and vociferous part in helping Randolph see the error of his ways. Those that stopped attending in effect did the same. However real supporters would now return in huge numbers to help create the feelgood factor that can make a difference to the confidence levels that affect performaces and results. Fans choosing to stay away now really are no longer fans as they are simply hindering the club from moving forward, be that with financial or vocal support. Anyone choosing to hinder the club as we try to move forward may as well nail their allegance to anybody we are competing with.
