Club continues to provide outstanding value for money – BBC Price of Football Survey.
- Latics have cheapest match day ticket in League One.
- Season Card prices among the best in the division.
- ‘Club remains committed to providing value for money’ - Latics CEO Jonathan Jackson.
The BBC’s annual audit of 176 clubs in British football across 11 divisions in England and Wales, from the Premier League to the Conference, and the Women's Super League 1 and 2 - as well as the top four divisions in Scotland - covers everything from the price of a season ticket to match day tickets, replica shirts, match day programme - even the cost of a pie and a cup of tea.
At just £15, Latics provide the best value match day ticket in League One, and among the cheapest in the entire Football league. The cheapest season card price of £250 and most expensive at £342 rank among the best value in the division also.
In other categories, Latics also came out very well. At £39.99, the adult replica shirt is joint equal cheapest in League One, while the junior shirt at £31.99 is the average for the division.
Jonathan Jackson, Wigan Athletic Chief Executive, said:
“The club remains committed to providing value for money to our supporters and I think these figures confirm it. We work very hard on keeping our prices as affordable as we can, and have done so for many years.
“As well as our match day tickets being ranked as as the cheapest in the division, our season cards will provide even greater value next season with our price guarantee of no more than £199 to all supporters who purchased full season cards for the 2015-16 season.
“Every football club is reliant upon a strong and loyal supporter base and we understand the need to provide the best possible value, starting from our youngest fans and covering every age range. When the long term vision is to keep generating tomorrow’s supporters today, we have a duty to provide the best possible value year on year.”
