Newcastle United win the Premier League - in this one area

St James Park

Newcastle United have the cheapest matchday experience in the Premier League.

Whilst the Magpies season has been less than impressive, with the club only sitting off the bottom of the Premier League table on goal difference, the North East club can still claim to be the best football club in England - at one thing at least.

Their matchday experience can be had for as little as £23.30, which includes a ticket, a programme, a pie and a cup of tea - 10p up from last season due to an increase in tea prices.

This comes in at £9.90 cheaper than the equivalent experience at local neighbours Sunderland, although their current mid-table placing makes the added price worth the admission, and is less than half of the fee required for Chelsea fans to enjoy a day out at Stamford Bridge - although the West Londoners are paying to see Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa and Eden Hazard lead the Premier League title race.

Newcastle held the same record last year, as a matchday ticket comes in at £15, although access to the family area at St James’ Park can be had for as little as £14, and whilst this is still £4 more than the lowest available in the entire Football League - with Derby and Sheffield Wednesday holding that record - it knocks the Magpies' Premier League rivals out of the water.

North Londoners Arsenal currently provide the most expensive ticket in the division, with their £97 matchday experience - a drop of £29 from last season - almost double the highest available int he North East, whilst their cheapest season ticket is more that £300 more expensive than the highest offering at St James’ Park.

It shows that Newcastle have not lost the affinity for their fans that has characterised the history of their club, but, if the on-pitch displays do not improve in the future, even award winning ticket prices may not be able to keep the fans showing up to St James Park.
