price of Premier League season tickets

Manchester City took the Premier League by storm throughout the 2017-18 season as Pep Guardiola led the Citizens to their third title triumph while becoming the first ever team to reach 100 points in a single 38-game season, earning them the nickname of ‘The Centurions’.

The upcoming campaign is expected to be much more competitive between the top-flight’s big six teams – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur – while the other teams in the top-flight stronger than ever after a summer of strong recruitment.

Wolverhampton Wanderers look like one of the strongest newly-promoted teams in a long while and have blown the fight for top-half places this season wide open; even the relegation battle is looking dangerously unpredictable.

Let’s talk about the price of online football tickets in the UK though. More specifically, season ticket prices.

The demand for Premier League football tickets has expectedly been huge throughout the build-up to the 2018-19 campaign, and in this article, we compare the cost of season tickets at each club split into two categories, the dearest and cheapest.

Arsenal offers the dearest season tickets in the Premier League at £1768.50 and their cheapest is also the most expensive in that category at £891.

Tottenham Hotspur closely follows, with their dearest priced at £1700 and their cheapest at £645, while Chelsea (£1250) and West Ham United (£1155) are the other two teams to charge their fans more than £1000 for their most expensive season tickets.

Season tickets at the two Manchester clubs are also in the highest price category. Manchester United charge from £532 to £950 for the dearest at Old Trafford, while the champions’ annual seats at the Etihad Stadium cost in between £299 and £920.

Last term’s Sky Bet Championship play-off winners Fulham surprisingly offer one of the priciest season tickets as supporters need to pay up to £929 at Craven Cottage.

Huddersfield’s brilliant £100 adult season tickets are by far the cheapest the in Premier League, and The Terriers don’t make supporters pay more than £299 for one at the John Smith’s Stadium – that’s probably why the atmosphere is always so excellent.

Even though West Ham’s season tickets are priced at up to over £1000, fans can bag their annual seats at the London Stadium from just £289. It’s the same with Man City; the Citizens offer fans their season tickets from £299 despite putting some of Europe’s greatest football on show throughout the 2017-18 season.

Championship runners-up Cardiff offer their cheapest season ticket for the same price as Man City, astonishingly, but their most expensive is priced at £519, which are the cheapest in the category.

Are Premier League football tickets good value? I strongly believe they are if you consider the quality of football (at the most of times), the reputation of players, managers and other individuals associated with the division. However, all Premier League tickets are fairly pricey, there’s no questioning that.

Bring on the new season, there’s plenty of action ahead!
