Despite being the most lucrative league in the world already, the Premier league has yet again seen an average rise of season ticket prices this year.
Today, football fans have marched to the Premier League headquarters to protest about rising ticket prices. Guardian Sport has asked: 'would you stop attending football matches because of rising ticket prices?'
Last year, the Guardian collected data into the pricing of tickets around the top European leagues with the average season ticket in the Premier league being more expensive than the Bundesliga and La Liga with only the Italian, Serie A, being more expensive, although corporate and VIP tickets were included in their general pricing, making it difficult to have a fair comparison.
Despite an 8% rise of their cheapest available season ticket, Manchester City can boast the best monetary value for football, with a season at the Etihad available for £299.
Arsenal have both the most expensive season ticket in the Premier league and the highest 'lowest priced' season ticket, making them the most expensive team to watch in the UK.
Out of the newly promoted sides, research also shows that Crystal Palace are cashing in on their new top flight status. Both their cheapest and most expensive season tickets have been increased by just under 20%.
Hull City's most expensive and cheapest priced season tickets have the smallest price difference out of all the teams in the league as they hope to project a 25% increase in crowds over last year in the Championship.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all frozen season ticket prices for the 2013/14 season.
But what about matchday tickets? At £15 for their cheapest, Newcastle can boast the lowest price. Hull City, West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa and Fulham all charge £20 for their cheapest tickets. At £41, Chelsea are the most expensive of the 'cheapest' matchday tickets. Data was not available for Crystal Palace and Cardiff City.
At £126 a pop, Arsenal charge by far the highest price for their 'most expensive' matchday tickets. Chelsea follow in second place at £87. Hull City in comparison will only set you back £30.
All the prices for the Premier League 2013/14 clubs can be seen in the table below. Would a rise in price of your team's ticket prices put you off attending matches? We'd love to read your views in the comments below.
