Blades match day offer recognised

18 October 2012

One of Sheffield United's initiatives to provide affordable football is highlighted in a national study on the cost of watching the game.

The BBC Sport Price of Football study records the prices for 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 possible day out at a match.

Only three out of 92 English league clubs offered a day out for less than £20. In the previous survey it was 12. Against Bournemouth last month the club provided a match day ticket, programme, pie and cup of tea which came out tops at £17.20. Huddersfield and Plymouth were the two other clubs under £20.

Sheffield United Commercial Director Steve Coakley said: "The ticket initiative for Bournemouth was a success with our fans and we will continue to explore other opportunities to provide good value days out at Bramall Lane this season."

The study looked at prices for 166 clubs in 10 divisions across English and Scottish football, including the Conference Premier and Women's Super League.
