The BBC Price of Football 2017 survey.

Having a look at this survey we don`t come out to bad maybe the club could tweak the prices a bit in our favour for next season if we don`t get promoted and the only real down fall is we are the most expensive for other teams supporters coming here to watch their team.

Good to see that across all leagues prices are being frozen but there is still work to do. Especially for young people, which an article on the BBC highlights really well. I feel like I go on about it loads but we should be constantly thinking of new ways to bring in younger fans and keep them coming.

As for away fans, it does seem bad when you look at how much we charge to what the majority of the league charges to away fans. I don't know whether the ticket cost itself stops away fans from coming though. In my opinion those who follow their team to away games aren't going to be put off by, fag-packet maths, a £6 increase from the average away ticket they'll experience. For me the real problem with away days (and the price of them) are train tickets which are out of all clubs' control and don't look like they'll stop being astronomical any time soon.
