The BBC’s Price Of Football survey for 2016 was released a week last Wednesday evening and as ever they looked at everything from the price of tickets through to the price of pies to determine how costs in football are changing for the supporter year on year.

Of course the Scottish Premiership figures highly in their ‘results’ but the same questions were asked of all Football clubs (albeit south of the border, Plymouth Argyle apparently declined to take part in the survey that featured 200+ odd UK and European sides and there are a couple of other omissions in the tables) and the major sides from European football were also contacted, along with Wales, Ireland and I believe for the first time ever, the English Women’s Super League took part.

Having dealt previously with Championship headline results from the survey – please Click Here, it’s time to move onto club specific details.

This is the sixth such Price of Football survey undertaken and it does show that ticket prices in general are falling, but there are exceptions across the divisions.
