Premier League season ticket affordability revealed - but where do Newcastle United rank
Fans have returned to stadiums – but who has the most ‘affordable’ season ticket in the Premier League?
Supporters have returned to football grounds in their masses this season, to the huge relief of everyone involved.
Newcastle have had played ¾ of their games so far this season at St James’s Park and boss Steve Bruce is happy to see the supporters back in their thousands.
Bruce, speaking after Newcastle’s friendly game against Norwich City, said:
“First of all, it’s great to see (fans back inside St James’s Park),” said Bruce.
“I know what it means to them to go and watch the club, and how good it was to see them enjoy (the game), and especially the second half. They’ll have enjoyed it, as they’ve missed the Premier League so much.
“So it was good to see them all. Obviously, we’ll make sure next week there’ll be even more in the stadium.”
"It’s great. It’s what it’s all about. It’s what makes the club unique.”
Just recently, new figures have been released to show the ‘affordability’ of Premier League season tickets.
The figures, compiled by CompareBet, show the cheapest season ticket price at each club and compare that to the average weekly wage from the surrounding areas.
This then allows for an estimate how long each fan would have to work in order to afford the cheapest season ticket available from the club.
Maybe unsurprisingly, Tottenham Hotspur, at their new stadium, offer the ‘least affordable’ season tickets, but where do Newcastle United rank compared to their 20 Premier League rivals and which set of Premier League supporters benefit from the ‘most affordable’ ticket prices?
