West Ham second cheapest in per goal scored table

West Ham came out second in a table watching each home goal scored this season. The cost of attending every home game this season based on the cheapest ticket has been divided by the total number of goals scored. Each goal has cost the average Hammers fan £8.82 to watch, just behind Leicester fans who paid a little less at £7.76. In contrast Chelsea fans paid £16.49 per goal, Manchester United fans paid £18.60 per goal while the worst value is Watford with £19.50 per goal for their suffering fans.

West Ham came under heavy criticism in the media earlier this season for the cost of some general tickets for category A games. A report by the BBC claimed West Ham have the dearest adult away tickets at £70 in the Premier League and the second dearest home general ticket at £95 for some games, just £2 behind Arsenal’s massive £97 per game.

In reality these £95 and £70 tickets make up a small minority of the tickets on sale this season. Adult season ticket holders pay a lot less. The 26,000 West Ham season ticket holders pay £48.63 per game in band 1, £45.31 per game in band 2, £42 per game in band 3 and £34.61 per game in band 4.

Ticket prices for the recent FA Cup fourth round replay were £20 for season ticket holders and £10 for the under 21’s and £5 for the U16’s. 6,000 Liverpool fans were similarly charged £20 for adults, £10 for U21 and £5 for U16’s.Goal
