English Football Tickets: Value For Money
The BBC recently released their Price of Football survey for 2012. This leads naturally to the question: Where to get value for money? To answer this, I mashed up the BBC data with Premier League Club Accounts from 2010/11 previously from the Guardian Data Blog. If I want to see valuable players on the pitch, where do I get the best results for what I spend on my ticket? If I buy the cheapest match-day ticket, or the cheapest season ticket, what is the best buy? I did the analysis and produced the following.
