How Watford fare in BBC Sport Price of Football Survey 2012
Watford's cheapest matchday ticket is the second highest priced in the Championship but they also have the cheapest priced cup of tea, according to the results of a BBC survey published this morning.
The BBC Sport Price of Football Survey 2012 looked at prices for 166 clubs in ten divisions across British football and it reports the average price of the cheapest matchday ticket in the English league game has risen from £19.01 to £21.24.
The survey states the cheapest Hornets matchday ticket is £26, with newly-promoted Huddersfield Town the lowest at £10 and Brighton & Hove Albion’s £28 the most expensive. However, the latter does include a transport levy (£2 for adults) to enable the ticket to be used as a pass for public transport.
Watford’s most expensive matchday ticket is £31, which is broadly in line with the majority of the division. Blackpool and Peterborough United have the least expensive at £25, with Ipswich Town (£42.50) at the other end of the scale.
While the survey also gives the figures for the cheapest and most expensive season tickets, it does not take account of concessionary categories and matchday offers. Watford have a comparatively large number of these, including reduced priced season tickets at levels including Under-16, Over-65 and several at 75-mile level.
The survey also shows the cost of a programme (£3) and pie (£3.20) and states the cost of a cup of tea (£1.40) at Vicarage Road is the lowest in the division. Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers are the most expensive at £2.20.
When all factors are included, the survey claims the cheapest day out at a Watford game is £33.60.
