That is just one of the findings from a new survey that collates the price of season tickets, match tickets, programmes, merchandise and food costs across the SPFL divisions this term.
Each of the 42 senior clubs - except Rangers - was asked to provide prices and among the other key findings, it emerged that:

  • The cheapest adult Premiership season ticket is £240
  • The most expensive ticket so far is £52 for an Old Firm game at Ibrox
  • 10 clubs offer free season tickets to kids
  • Rangers & Dumbarton charge the most for a pie
  • Rangers, Motherwell & Queen's Park charge the most for a cup of tea


Was thinking about Kris Boyd after the Scotland vs Belgium game that other night saying that football is a middle/upper class sport now and he’s absolutely right. How long to clubs expect to continually raise prices before punters have simply had enough, or will the bubble never burst

Haha it's really not.

Go to a Scotland rugby international at Murrayfield and then you will see what a middle class sport and support is.

Played golf with a guy today who is off to Old Trafford on Saturday his ticket is costing £95. There is no way a working man would be able to pay that sort of money out regularly so KB is correct it’s become a middle class sport.

An upper class game now? Read it all now.

Went to check if any spares on the site for the Livi game on Saturday - Govan Rear face value was £42.. thought that was a bit steep
We set the individual match ticket priced on where the season ticket holder is per game in the same area add a couple of pounds when a Category B happens - Aberdeen, Hearts & Hibs

Livingston prices range from £28 Family Stand, £29-£41 elsewhere for adults

To those saying football isn’t heading towards an upperclass sport just need to look at the figures for champions league final tickets. Any game of importance and your average fan is priced out, sometimes doesn’t even get a look in because it’s tickets for the boys.

Ah right I didn’t realise this was the way it works, so a season ticket in the Govan Rear is around 750 notes is it?!

The same Kris Boyd that charges £75 for his summer football camp.

Football is not a middle/upper class sport and never will be. Working class people just accept and pay increased prices each year.
Exactly.

Do middle class and upper class people attend football? Of course. But I’d say that 90%+ are working class (or non working class)

compare footie prices to what else is there to do. I've two kids, so a day out at the football is a fortune whereas i can take them to wonderworld, or even the imax, sit in reasonable comfort for a couple of hours for a good bit less.

football prices are ridiculous but no wonder given the stupid salaries

football prices are ridiculous but no wonder given the stupid salaries that we all pay it!

I went to the France v Andorra match at stade de France.

Decent tickets, main stand half way up in line with an 18 yard box.

€25. I thought that was decent value to see the world champions in a competitive match, albeit against weak opposition

To make them feel better about increasing the rest of the child tickets for the game to £20 each?

Some people seem to think that Rangers can charge what they want and if ordinary working class families are priced out then it's 'tough luck'. It's an abysmal attitude to have and many fans will be lost to the game forever soon. £50 for a SPFL match is scandalous, no matter how it's dressed up.
It’s not though. Go to any showpiece game throughout Europe and the price will be a lot higher in the main. The fact it easily sells out suggests that people are more than happy to pay £52 for the game.

Until we increase our capacity, we should raise our prices by 20%.

We'd still have sellouts every week and more money for the club. It's a no-brainer

It is. Like I said, dress it up how you want. £50 to watch a Scottish Premiership match is scandalous. And of course, people pay it. Not like an energy company were you can just switch providers is it?

Not really a headline story is it?

I'm almost certainly now going to Karlsruher v Hannover next month. Bundesliga 2. Main stand seat will cost me 35 Euro.

Boyd wasn’t meaning that was a middle class sport in terms of the fans. He meant more in terms of the people that are now able to afford to play it, attend academies and buy boots and kit regularly. Les and less working class people are breaking through and becoming pro as they are being priced out of playing and are just moving into regular day to day jobs.
