With the cost-of-living crisis still raging and fresh predictions of a year-long UK recession means football fans will be inspecting their season ticket bills closely this year.
But that has not stopped the Premier League team with the most expensive season ticket from passing on a price hike to its supporters.
Arsenal’s cheapest season ticket on offer was already the priciest in the top flight, but its 2022/23 price tag will increase by almost £40 for fans compared with last year.
Even freshly-promoted Fulham have got in on the act.
Although the so-called “yo-yo” club are largely expected to be in a scrap for survival, tickets to sit in their newly redeveloped Riverside Stand to watch the Cottagers take on Liverpool on Saturday (August 6) are being flogged for £100 each.
The Daily Star looks at where the most expensive and the cheapest tickets can be found to regularly watch England’s elite teams.

Arsenal fans will have to stump up the most next season out of any Premier League spectators to get through the turnstiles.

The Gunners cheapest ticket on offer last season was a staggering £891 – already £84 more expensive than rivals Tottenham, who have the second-highest prices (cheapest adult is £807) and finished above them last season.
Spurs have also frozen ticket prices for fans this year at their £1 billion state-of-the-art home on Tottenham High Road.
