Price to pay of watching Walsall FC

Walsall were ranked 45th out of the 92 league clubs as the cheapest day out with a cost of a match ticket, a cup of tea, a pie and a programme equalling £25.10, in a survey released by the BBC today.

The BBC recorded the most expensive and cheapest season tickets and adult matchday tickets as well as the cost of a cup of tea, a pie and a programme, to calculate the cheapest day out at a football match.

The survey found the average cost of the cheapest adult ticket in the top four divisions of English football has risen by 11.7 per cent, from £19.01 to £21.24 in the past 12 months - more than five times the rate of inflation.

'It is quite shocking that at Arsenal, for example, the cheapest season ticket is only £15 short of £1,000.
