The price that supporters have to pay for Sky Bet League Two football tickets throughout the 2018-19 season has undergone the highest rise out of every other division in the English Football League and non-league from last year’s prices.
The average cost of the league’s dearest season tickets totals up to £390.02 and £277.75 for the cheapest season tickets. Meanwhile, the cost of the most expensive single football tickets averages at £23.19 and the average of the cheapest single football tickets is £17.79.
That figure – the £17.79 average for all 24 clubs’ cheapest single match tickets – is the only category of the four that has actually been reduced this season, with the averages of the dearest season tickets and single football tickets as well as the dearest single tickets all increasing.
Despite the rise in cost, there’s no doubting the terrific support League Two teams receive and will continue to receive going into the new campaign at the bottom of the EFL hierarchy, but how do these football ticket prices actually compare?
All is well and good talking about the price of League Two football tickets in general, but this article will compare how much away tickets cost.
Colchester United have the cheapest away tickets in League Two, priced at just £14.50 and are closely followed by Crawley Town, Forest Green Rovers and Yeovil Town who all charge as low as £16 to watch their teams play on the road.
Morecambe’s away tickets rise from just £17 and Carlisle United, Grimsby Town, Lincoln City, Luton Town, Newport County and Swindon Town all follow suit by pricing their cheapest away tickets at less than the £20 mark.
Barnet’s cheapest cost £23, the highest-priced in the category, but they have capped all away tickets at £23 so it rises no higher and drops no lower.
Colchester may have the cheapest away tickets in the fourth tier of English football, but their tickets for matches away from home are also the dearest out of all 24 clubs. Coventry City, Luton, Stevenage and Yeovil all charge £24 for their most expensive and are a part of the same bracket.
Forest Green and Newport seem to have the most fan-friendly prices on their away tickets, charging £16 and £18 respectively for their cheapest and they both price their most expensive at just £18, meaning it’d cost just £414 to go to every single away fixture in a season.
League Two is the lowest point of the English Football League and it’s safe to say that prices of not just away tickets, but season tickets and individual homes tickets strongly reflect that as it’s very affordable to watch football whether you’re a supporter of a team in the division or just want to go and watch your local team.
It may be the lowest in terms of quality, but the atmosphere in League Two is just as good as anywhere else and it should be another great season – will you be attending any matches?
