New figures released today
ALBION continue to offer some of the lowest-priced football in the Barclays Premier League.
Figures from a new survey conducted by the Premier League show that Hawthorns regulars enjoy some of the lowest prices available to watch the globe’s most in-demand League action.
The survey (table below) shows that the most commonly-paid match ticket price by Albion’s adult season ticket holders was the fourth cheapest in the division.
And at £21, it was more than £9 less expensive than the Premier League average.
The results continue to bolster Albion’s standing as one of the most cost-conscious clubs in the most competitive and popular League in world football.

The 2014-15 season marked a record level of occupancy in Premier League grounds with 95.9% of tickets available sold over the 380 matches of the campaign. It also marked the third season in a row that occupancy exceeded 95%.
These figures are thanks to the fact that almost two-thirds of people who attend matches in the Barclays Premier League are season ticket holders (66%).
The research by the league found that the average of the adult season ticket that was most commonly paid (the modal price) was £30.25 per match.
Incorporating all the season ticket prices available at the 20 clubs the average price paid by adult season ticket holders works out as £33, while for junior season ticket holders they cost £10.
Richard Scudamore, the Premier League’s Executive Chairman, said: “What is clear from our analysis is that those who attend Premier League football most often, the 66% of match attenders who are season ticket holders, are getting some excellent value from their clubs with an average of less than £33 per match.
“Full and vibrant stadiums are a hugely important part of what makes the Premier League so special. Clubs recognise the contribution of the loyal supporter base that sustains the game at this level.
“Clubs are alive to the importance of keeping that match-going habit, which is why a number of them are extending junior concessions to the ages of 18 or 21 in some cases."
