How PNE compare in the Price of Football study


Preston North End supporters can chew their way through one of the cheapest pies in the Championship but have to make their money stretch a bit further for a half-time brew.

The BBC's annual Price of Football study showed that 17 Championship clubs charge more than North End's £3 for a pie.

Five clubs charge the same, with Burton Albion offering the cheapest pastry snack in the division at £2.80.

A cup of tea at Deepdale is £2.20, only six Championship charging more and five the same price.

When it comes to admission prices, North End's cheapest season ticket price is £380 according to the study - six clubs in the division are more expensive.

What the study does not include is that season tickets for Under-11s are free.

The dearest season ticket on offer to PNE fans is £505, with 15 clubs in the section having a larger price - the most expensive in that category is the £929 charged by Fulham.

North End's cheapest single ticket is £24, Wolves, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Leeds and Ipswich charging more.

Their most expensive single ticket is £30, that comparing favourably in the division with 17 clubs more expensive.

PNE charge a flat £24 for away fans at Deepdale, while many others have a sliding scale.

In the study's cheapest adult away ticket section, their £24 is cheaper than eight clubs.

But in the dearest adult away category, North End offer the joint best value - all but Burton charge more.

Ten Championship clubs charge more for an adult replica shirt than the £45 it costs in the Deepdale club shop - eight charge the same as PNE - while their junior replica shirts at £36 is cheaper than 11 clubs in the division.

The £3 which Preston charge for their match day programme is pretty standard in the Championship, with 19 clubs' publications costing the same and five more expensive at £3.50.
