The study

This year the BBC contacted 166 clubs in 10 divisions across British football. It recorded the prices for the most expensive, and cheapest, season tickets and adult match-day tickets - as well as the cost of a cup of tea, a pie and a programme - to calculate the cheapest possible day out at a match.

A cup of tea remains most expensive in Manchester, where United charge £2.50. Teas are cheapest at Alloa (50p) and Elgin City (60p).

Leeds charged most for their programme in 2012; this year no programme costs £4, but Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Norwich, Stoke, Tottenham, West Ham, Brighton, Leeds and Hearts all charge £3.50.

Crystal Palace and Kidderminster offer the most expensive pies, at £4. You could buy three for the same price and get change at Forfar Athletic, whose pies cost a mere £1.20.
