Ipswich season ticket more expensive than United
Wednesday 04 August 2010
A survey of all 92 English professional clubs has found Championship side Ipswich's most expensive season ticket was more than the equivalent at Newcastle or Manchester United.
At £1001, Ipswich's season ticket, entitling the owner to a seat in section D of the Cobbold Stand at Portman Road, is the fourth-most expensive in the country, with Newcastle, at £975, and Manchester United, at £931, coming in fifth and sixth respectively.
Arsenal offer the most expensive season ticket in the country at £1825 according to the survey, which was conducted by FourFourTwo magazine, with the most expensive single ticket for a match at the Emirates Stadium costing £94.
After Arsenal, Tottenham's top-price season ticket costs £1695, and Chelsea's costs £1210. Rounding out the top 10, Fulham charge £899, West Ham charge £850, Liverpool charge £785 and Queen's Park Rangers lead the line for sides outside the top flight, asking their supporters to shell out £699 for a season pass.
Of Premier League clubs, Wigan offers the cheapest top-price season ticket – the best seat in the house costing just £295, which is less than half as much as the equivalent at Bristol City – with only Accrington, Bradford, Hereford, Crewe and Port Vale coming out cheaper out of any teams in the entire Football League.
Wigan officials attribute their comparitively cheap tickets to a range of factors, including the proximity of other teams in the north-west and the fact Wigan is predominantly a rugby league town.
