Sky Bet League One match-goers will be delighted to hear that the average prices of both season tickets and single football tickets appear to have been reduced for the 2018-19 season, with the latter being available from just £10.
You won’t have to pay more than £34 for a single football ticket and none of the cheapest single tickets are priced above £24, however, the most expensive season tickets are still around the £500 region despite the league being the third tier of English football.
It is predominantly good news ahead of the new campaign though, with the average price of the cheapest season tickets being cut down to £279.58 from £283.56 and the average cost of the cheapest single football tickets now under £20 at £19.19, 91p less than last term.
The new campaign is well underway and it already promises to be one of the most exciting in a long, long time, but we aren’t here to talk about how well clubs are going to do.
Nope, we want to talk about football tickets and more specifically, away tickets so let’s get into it.
£23.81 is the average cost of League One away tickets, £6 less than the Premier League and £8 less than in the Championship but still fairly higher than what you’d like to pay for the quality of football in the third tier of English football.
MK Dons make it very affordable to watch the team on the road and offer the cheapest away tickets in the league at just £10 while Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon are the only other two clubs that make away football tickets available for less than £20.
There is a large collection of clubs who charge £20 for their cheapest including Blackburn Rovers, Bradford City, Bury, Charlton Athletic, Gillingham, Oldham Athletic, Shrewsbury Town and Wigan Athletic which should be seen as a respectable price to pay.
You have to pay at least £24 for away matches if you’re an Oxford United or Peterborough United supporter, which are the highest-priced tickets amongst all 24 clubs in the category. In terms of dearest away tickets, Wigan Athletic charge supporters £30 for the more prestige away fixtures whilst Peterborough’s £28 tickets closely follow.
Blackburn, Scunthorpe United and Walsall are the only other clubs that charge over £25 and MK Dons surprisingly don’t offer the least-pricey dearest away ticket. They charge £22 for their dearest but Bury and Shrewsbury offer them for £2 less at £20.
The average may be higher than you would expect but it’s fairly affordable to watch all the clubs in the league, despite the cost of each ticket category increasing more than in any of the other top five divisions in English football – the Premier League, Sky Bet Championship, League One, Sky Bet League Two and Vanarama National League.
It promises be a great season in League One with plenty of football tickets being bought, especially away football tickets, from now right up until May when the 2018-19 campign comes to a close.
