CONTINUED VALUE FOR MONEY FROM THE DANSKE BANK PREMIERSHIP

The Northern Ireland Football League have welcomed the findings of the BBC’S 2017/18 Price of Football study.

More than 2,000 ticket prices at more than 200 clubs were analysed in the biggest study of its kind in Europe which has found that the Danske Bank Premiership continues to offer football fans some of the best value for money.

The Danske Bank Premiership offers the second cheapest match tickets of any of the professional men’s leagues in the United Kingdom. Those fans are also getting some of the best value for money this season with 3.27 goals per game meaning spectators are paying just over £3 a goal on average in Danske Bank Premiership games.

NI Football League Managing Director, Andrew Johnston said; “We’re delighted that the Danske Bank Premiership continues to provide some of the best value for money for supporters across all of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.”

“This season has been particularly great value for money as with some of the lowest ticket prices we currently potentially five teams challenging for the league title this season and the fans are flocking back to the local game!”

The average attendance of the Danske Bank Premiership continues to reflect the value for money as with an average crowd of 1,137 at games so far this season, the figure marks a 33% increase in ten years and 6% on the previous 2016/17 campaign.
