Championship Value For Money In 2016/17

Championship Value For Money In 2016/17

With season ticket prices announced for Championship clubs in 2016-17, here's how each club rates alongside their league opposition.

Finances obviously play a huge part in the modern game, and a season doesn't pass now where their aren't murmurings from the fans about prices, and Supporters' groups talking about giving something back to the fans with the commercial opportunities and television money passed down through the levels and it is something that clubs often address now as they try and provide better value for money whilst maintain the revenue fans do generate for them.

The most recent step being the £30 away ticket cap agreement in the Premier League, but of course as we've already seen in the Championship, that agreement doesn't apply.

With incentives and ideas every year to help spread the cost of season tickets, make them more affordable or give them added value let's see how we compare.

For the purposes of this, it's a simple look at the cheapest and most expensive available standard adult ticket for the coming campaign, not including the large use of early bird offers that reward fans with discounts for early committal to the season ticket package.

Club's would probably point to fans gaining purely on the basis of inflation as whilst some clubs have frozen prices, others have reduced them overall, and others equally have announced rises.

Of course that doesn't paint the entire picture, with tickets split between so many age range categories these days, and of course again it doesn't take into account the early bird offers many clubs now use, or the various other discounts employed at stages of the sales windows.

Equally for differing clubs, the added extras a season ticket brings with merchandise discounts etc aren't accounted for, and of course season tickets do always offer some savings compared to match day tickets alone.

But fans might be interested in the prices charges by others in the league.

Some prices are renewals only, Family stands with fewer restraints or longer term deal offers and a nod to the Express for the legwork - so errors are their own and I've corrected the ones I spotted.

Top to bottom, and high (cheapest) to low.
