Football ticket prices exceed cost of living

BBC Sport's Price of Football survey show that matchday ticket prices have outstripped the cost of living since 2011.

The average price of the cheapest football matchday tickets across the English game have increased at almost twice the rate of the cost of living over the last three years.

BBC Sport's latest Price of Football study has discovered that the cheapest ticket from the Premier League to League Two carries an average price of £21.49.

The cost of living from 2011 has risen by 6.8%, while match prices have increased by 13% and 4.4% year on year, which is more than three times the 1.2% rise of inflation.

The study has revealed that Arsenal's most expensive matchday ticket has decreased by £29, but still remains the priciest in the Premier League with a cost of £97.

With regards to season tickets, Championship side Charlton Athletic offer the cheapest price of £150 across the top four leagues.
