Sheffield United have done the double – with the League One club providing fans with the cheapest match day experience in the entire Football League for the second successive season.

The Blades offer adult match day tickets starting at £10. And if you throw in a programme, cup of tea and a pie the total cost of a visit to Bramall Lane is just £17.70.

United’s family-day category £10 price is available for only a few games in the season.

But their £18 category B ticket is bettered by only four other League One clubs, according to the Price of Football Study.

The most expensive matchday ticket at the Lane is £26.

Club spokesman Kevin Cuckson said: “We want to offer affordable football to Sheffield United fans and we are delighted to have come top for the second season running. It is important in these testing times, as we all know how expensive football can be.”

At Hillsborough, the cheapest Championship matchday experience offered by the Owls is £34.20, with the least expensive seats in the ground priced £26.

At Oakwell, Barnsley’s cheapest matchday package is £31.10, with seat tickets from £23.

And at Doncaster Rovers’ Keepmoat, the cheapest day out costs £28.90 with tickets from £21.

Rotherham United’s cheapest season ticket, at £355, is the most expensive in League One. The cheapest day out at the Millers’ New York Stadium is £28, with match day tickets from £20 and pies a bargain £3.

And if you follow League Two toppers Chesterfield, the cheapest matchday experience at the Proact Stadium costs £26 with tickets starting at £18.

The most expensive team to follow in England is Arsenal, with season tickets costing a bank balance-busting £1,955.
