Premier League research has revealed the average ticket price across the league this season to be £32.
Analysis compiled by the league and professional services company Ernst & Young, using data collected from all 20 clubs, shows more than half of all attending fans are paying £30 or less per match during the 2017-18 campaign.
It also claims that 34 per cent of all available Premier League season tickets have been sold below full price, owing to early-bird offers and loyalty discounts, saving fans a total of £10m across the season.
After clubs introduced a three-season £30 cap on away ticket prices last season, the research shows the average away ticket price will be £26, with 33 per cent of away tickets sold at a price below the cap.
Premier League Executive Chairman, Richard Scudamore, said: "The loyal and passionate support of attending fans is hugely appreciated by clubs, their managers and players, and the Premier League.
"This research shows the excellent value clubs are offering across the League and the impressive commitment of their fans. I hope it will challenge commonly held perceptions about the cost of attending Premier League football, and encourage even more people to consider going to a match."
The research includes all parts of Premier League stadiums except hospitality areas, and includes all ticket prices include booking fees or admin charges.
