Just watch those top Manchester United goals and you’ll definitely want to check out a game live. If you’re heading to the UK and want to catch a soccer (aka football) match, a comparison of the prices of tickets and programmes from the 2012/13 football league is bound to leave some fans feeling elated whilst others must be stunned to realize how much they’re paying relevant to other fans.
Three London based clubs topped the most expensive season-ticket list with Arsenal (£985-£1,955), Tottenham (£730-£1,855) and Chelsea (£595-£1,250) being the only three clubs to dare to have charged four figures. However, despite fans thinking they should be much less; lengthy waiting list suggests that the ethos of demand and supply is very much in these football clubs’ favors.
Surprisingly, perhaps, the season tickets of the most recent winners of the Premiership, Manchester United (£532-£950), seems real value for money in comparison to the big London clubs, while prices of 2011/12 Champions Manchester City (£275-£695) seem a positive bargain.
The supporters of Stoke (£344-£609), Swansea (£429-£499) and West Bromwich Albion (£349-£449) showed an understanding of paying a relative sum of money for season tickets, one that fitted their niche mentality of playing their trade from mid-table, perfectly.
Fans of two of last year’s relegated teams, Queens Park Rangers (£499-£949) and Reading (£350-£949), are probably thinking that they paid too much money for what they had been promised would be a quality product, but inevitably failed to do the job. Meanwhile, fans of the other relegated team, Wigan (£255-£310) are probably wishing they had paid a little more for a quality product – just proving that the failure to get the right product for the job can be detrimental to the long-term goals of any business.
The most popular price for a programme was three pound, although Fulham, Norwich, Stoke, Tottenham and West Ham all charged an extra fifty pence for some reason.
That’s why, when it comes to printing costs of such items as programmes, tickets and leaflets Instant Print understands that businesses need a variety of high-quality and value-for-money products to choose from, ones that keep you in whichever part of the league you’re aiming at.
