For many, having a pie and a pint in the stadium on a match day is almost a tradition, but many missed out on this during the 2020/21 season when the majority of the season was played behind closed doors.

Clubs have also felt the effects of an empty stadium, not just in ticket sales, but also the food and drink supporters buy when at the ground.

Research, commissioned by has revealed the staggering amounts of money that Premier League clubs missed out on through no purchases of pints or pies.

They have done this by estimating the amount of pies and pints bought by each person and have used historical attendance figures to work-out the amount of income that ordinarily would have been received by each club.

Using this data, we have ranked each Premier League ground from the least amount of money lost on pies and pints, to which ground lost the most income from these sales.

Here, we have provided the total number of pies/pints that would usually have been bought throughout the season and the total amount of money the club would have made, had they sold these items:
