The average cost of a ticket to see a Premier League match has risen in the past 12 months at a rate more than five times faster than the rate of inflation, a BBC survey has revealed.

The Emirates Stadium

Year on year the average cost of the most affordable ticket to a Premier League fixture has gone from just over £19 to more than £21, an increase of almost 12%, the survey reveals. The cheapest adult ticket in the Premier League can be found at Newcastle United, who offer some tickets for £15, while Fulham and Wigan Athletic both have £20 tickets available.

The most expensive ticket in the top flight is at Arsenal, where one ticket can cost £126. The Emirates Stadium is also home to the most expensive season ticket available, with guaranteed entry to 19 Premier League games and seven cup games - either the FA Cup or European competition - valued at £985.

Arsenal is also home to the most expensive season ticket in the Premier League, at £1, 955, with Chelsea in second place with a top price season ticket costing £1,250. The cheapest season ticket can be found at Wigan, at £255, with Newcastle’s £322 following.
