With season ticket prices announced for League One clubs in 2015-16, here’s how Barnsley rates alongside our league opposition.

Finances obviously play a huge part in the modern game, and a season doesn’t pass now where their aren’t murmurings from the fans about prices, and Supporters’ groups talking about giving something back to the fans with the commercial opportunities and television money passed down through the levels – albeit the League One part of that pie is nothing compared to the riches available in the Premier League – and it is something that clubs often address now as they try and provide value for money whilst maintain the revenue fans do generate for them.

With incentives and ideas every year to help spread the cost of season tickets, make them more affordable or give them added value let’s see how we compare.

For the purposes of this, it’s a simple look at the cheapest available adult ticket for the coming campaign, not including the large use of early bird offers that reward fans with discounts for early committal to the season ticket package.

Maybe hinting at our ambitions for the coming campaign, in the table of 24, Barnsley find themselves as the sixth most expensive of the cheapest ticket category at £370.

This of course sees no change to pricing compared to last season, so the club would no doubt point to fans gaining purely on the basis of inflation as whilst some clubs have frozen prices, others have reduced them overall, and others equally have announced rises.

Of course that doesn’t paint the entire picture, with tickets split between so many age range categories these days, and of course again it doesn’t take into account the early bird offers, that for that ticket especially (CK Beckett South Stand) in the month of April it was priced at £300, and in the month of May was priced at £335 – or for differing clubs the added extras a season ticket brings and of course season tickets do always offer some savings compared to match day tickets alone.

But fans might be interested in the prices charges by others in the league.

Some prices are renewals only, Family stands with fewer restraints or longer term deal offers.

Top to bottom, and high to low.
