"Price of football" study
 
BBC Sport - Price of Football - League Two clubs

Some interesting results from this study, but mainly it dispels the notion that the price of football at the Crown Ground is amongst the cheapest in League 2.

The club sets the price for admission and programmes, so taking those two prices alone, only 12 of 23 teams in League 2 have a minimum adult price more expensive than at Stanley.

Only the pies at the Crown Ground are really cheap!

That was based on last year's prices ... is there any confirmation about 2011/12 gate prices? Surely they can't match the huge increase in season ticket prices?

The prices in green are the lowest adult admission prices - nine L2 clubs have cheaper admission prices than Stanley. And only Leeds have a more expensive programme in all the four divisions in England and the SPL.

Assuming an adult can get in at the cheapest concessionary price, and that a programme, pie and coffee are essential to the enjoyment of the match, then it's 3 less to go a watch Rovers than Stanley. And they give you a free frozen chicken when you leave. :eek:

These figures don't stand up to scrutiny.

For example, Rotherham, Torquay and Plymouth are all shown as charging a minimum of 10 per match but, if you check their websites, tickets for their first home league matches are shown as 18, 17 and 20 respectively.

Possibly, they've given the over-60s price as the minimum or even a reduced price that they are charging for an isolated Carling Cup tie. We don't know what the clubs were asked to provide but, whatever the explanation, the table is just a nonsense and it's quite likely that Stanley's league prices are the lowest after all.

Yet another case of a sloppy journalist not bothering to check the facts properly?

Only for certain games probably no more than 2 or 3 otherwise, Rovers = rip off

The figures were taken over a season not an odd game or two

No so. Simon Williams clearly says that the Blackburn price of 10 relates only to some matches.

The whole survey is ludicrous. The opening paragraph suggests it is for the coming season - that cannot be correct. In many cases, like is not being compared with like.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Clayton End standing was 13 last year was it not?
