BBC PRICE OF FOOTBALL SURVEY: PRICE STILL RIGHT FOR LATICS SUPPORTERS

17 November 2016

Wigan Athletic continue to provide excellent value - BBC Price of Football Survey 2016.

  • BBC Price of Football Survey: Latics offer best value on Championship season tickets.
  • BBC Price of Football Survey: Only two EFL clubs offer cheaper season tickets than Latics.
  • BBC Price of Football Survey:  “We offer excellent value for money compared to other clubs” – CEO Jonathan Jackson.
Latics have once again been ranked among the top value for money providers in the EFL, according to the BBC’s Price of Football Survey – published today, Thursday November 17.  

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 and the cost of a pie and a cup of tea. 

Our price of £179 for 2016-17 season card renewals is the second cheapest in the Sky Bet Championship - along with Huddersfield Town - and the third lowest in the entire EFL, with only Bradford City and Charlton Athletic offering lower prices.

No Wigan Athletic supporter paid more than £229 for their 2016-17 season card, which represented the best value in the entire EFL, and in fact only two National League clubs offer cheaper prices. 

At £22 for the cheapest ticket available on a matchday, Latics are averagely priced for the division, whilst for the most expensive matchday (Category A) fixtures which Latics have yet to charge this season, £30 represents the 5th cheapest in the division for home fans. As an away fan, that top price represents the 11th cheapest in the country.

Latics are also top value when it comes to the price of a programme and a pie and Jonathan Jackson, Wigan Athletic Chief Executive, said the club were pleased with the results of the survey.

He said: “The conclusion is that once again we offer excellent value for money compared to other clubs. Our prices are outstanding.

“We reduced season card prices significantly this season to reward supporters for their loyalty in League One which was a promise we made at the start of last season. We have always maintained season card prices at a very competitive level but this season we really stand out in the crowd.  

“For non-season card holders, our match day ticket prices for home and away supporters have always been set at realistic, affordable levels with an emphasis on encouraging younger supporters to attend our football matches and that is also reflected in the survey.”
