With season ticket prices announced for Premier League clubs in 2016-17, here’s how Arsenal rates alongside our league opposition.

Finances obviously play a huge part in the modern game, and a season doesn’t pass now where their aren’t murmurings from the fans about prices, and Supporters’ groups talking about giving something back to the fans with the commercial opportunities and television money passed down through the levels and it is something that clubs often address now as they try and provide better value for money whilst maintain the revenue fans do generate for them.

The most recent step being the £30 away ticket cap agreement.

With incentives and ideas every year to help spread the cost of season tickets, make them more affordable or give them added value let’s see how we compare.

For the purposes of this, it’s a simple look at the cheapest and most expensive available standard adult ticket for the coming campaign, not including the large use of early bird offers that reward fans with discounts for early committal to the season ticket package.

Arsenal come in as the most expensive of the cheapest tickets in the division next season with an adult price of £1035, but of course that doesn’t reflect the membership scheme and demand, but the price is identical to last year.

The club would probably point to fans gaining purely on the basis of inflation as whilst some clubs have frozen prices, others have reduced them overall, and others equally have announced rises.

Of course that doesn’t paint the entire picture, with tickets split between so many age range categories these days, and of course again it doesn’t take into account the early bird offers many clubs now use, or the various other discounts employed at stages of the sales windows.

Equally for differing clubs, the added extras a season ticket brings with merchandise discounts etc aren’t accounted for, and of course season tickets do always offer some savings compared to match day tickets alone.

But fans might be interested in the prices charges by others in the league.

Some prices are renewals only, Family stands with fewer restraints or longer term deal offers.

Top to bottom, and high (cheapest) to low.
