FOOTBALL fans in Sheffield can take advantage of the cheapest matchday experience in the Football League - if their allegiance takes them to Bramall Lane that is.

Figures in a study entitled Price of Football reveals fans can experience a game at the Lane for just £17.20.

The amount covers ticket to a game, programme, pie and cup of tea.

A trip to Bramall Lane is more than £4 cheaper than any other League One club, with Tranmere offering the next cheapest matchday experience at £21.50.

Sheffield United spokesman Kevin Cookson said he believed the Lane offered good value for money.

He said: “We had our highest home attendance with this ticket price.

“In that game there were eight goals, so it was certainly value for money.”

United are the only club in South Yorkshire who duck below the under £20 barrier.

Only two other clubs in the entire Football League offer a matchday experience under £20 - Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle.

The cheapest day out at Hillsborough to watch Sheffield Wednesday will knock fans back £32 - with a ticket costing £24, programme £3, pie £3 and tea £2.

To see Barnsley at Oakwell it costs £33.10 and at Doncaster Rovers, in League One, it’s £10 cheaper at £23.

And in League Two, the cheapest day out at Chesterfield will knock you back £26 and Rotherham a pound more at £27.

A season ticket at Elland Road to see Leeds costs as much as £752 with a programme priced £4.
