How expensive is it to be a PL club supporter?

Since the formation of the Premier League in 1992, the competition has grown into the biggest and most watched domestic league in the world with millions of fans tuning in every week to watch their favourite players and clubs in action. This season was an exciting one for fans, with clubs playing some of the best football seen in the league in a while from teams such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham. Although some teams have been
playing some sensational footy, there is no doubt that Manchester City have been the best team in the league this season with the Citizens already securing the league title and breaking multiple records along the way. With three games remaining, Pep Guardiola’s side are still on course to break the Premier League point record and are likely to surpass the 100 point barrier.

Although you’re not longer able to place bets on the title winners on the Premier League betting at Betfair site, you are still able to place bets on the teams likely to get relegated with the relegation fight set to go down to the final day of the season. Everyone who is familiar with the Premier League and the relegation system will know that three teams who have gathered the fewest points will be relegated from the Premier League into the Championship. Although relegation is very disappointing for everyone at the club, the most affected people are the fans. These are the people who invest a fairly substantial amount of money into the club to watch their fans compete against some of the best teams in the country and be entertained. Although losing games is always disappointing, relegation for a division is one of the lowest experiences you can get as a football fan. Fortunately for most fans, clubs tend to experience more ‘high moments’ then ‘low moments’ meaning that an instant return to the Premier League could be likely for any team that’s relegated if they manage to keep the majority of their players and are smart in their summer recruitment for any new players.

As mentioned earlier fans invest a large amount of money to watch their team in action, and expect some form of entertainment in return. Although Premier League clubs no longer rely on match-day attendances as the majority of their income, keeping the fans happy will insure that a fantastic atmosphere is generated in the stadium which allows the team to thrive.

A look below reveals that London clubs, as one would expect, are costly to support. Arsenal’s season tickets cost almost 70% over that of Liverpool, with Spurs and Chelsea not too far behind either.
