Leicester City has best ticket value while Manchester United and Chelsea amongst worst
Calculated with the number of goals scored at home against the value of the least priced home ticket.
Chelsea and Manchester United have had hostile home crowds this season – ignoring the bad results – due to the lack of goals being scored. While Leicester have played the underdog card often and have propelled themselves to the top of the table with underrated performances, they've topped yet another table: the most value-for-money ticket in terms of goals scored at home.
With an ongoing debate over the rise of ticket prices while TV broadcasters continue to pour money into Premier League clubs, it is almost unfortunate to see a giant like Manchester United's name on the bottom of the list.
With the cheapest ticket offering at Old Trafford priced at £31, supporters are shelling out a whopping £18.60 per goal scored at Manchester. Compare that to the cheapest ticket on offer at Leicester being priced at £22, supporters have only had to spend £7.76 per goal given that Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and co have scored a decent 34 goals at the King Power stadium.
The difference in the amount of money spent to witness a goal at a home stadium between Old Trafford and the King Power stadium is huge and considering United spent £200m+ on transfers in the summer and with their season ticket on the higher side, supporters are beginning to rightfully question whether their clubs truly care about their fans or if they're more interested in the business side of a football – an almost-truthful scenario fans do not want to hear of.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have scored a high 41 goals at home in the Premier League this season – which when compared to Leicester is far better – but the cost of their lowest ticket is the highest in the league with supporters shelling out £52 making their average cost per goal at a high £16.49.
