Prices in Scotland's top flight have not changed dramatically in 2014, despite the Premiership losing two of the country's biggest clubs.

Hearts and Hibernian were relegated at the end of last season.

Average prices for cheapest season tickets, cheapest match-day tickets and most expensive match-day tickets have risen only marginally since 2013.

But the most expensive season tickets show a significant drop, with the average price down almost £10.

Last year, the average price for the cheapest day out at Premiership matches, which included a cheap match-day ticket, pie, cup of tea and a programme, was £26.34. In 2014, it is £26.95.

Dundee and Hamilton Academical were promoted to the top flight last season.

Dundee's cheapest season ticket has risen from £260 to £300 but their least expensive match-day ticket remains at £20.

The lowest priced season ticket at Hamilton has jumped from £220 to £310, while their cheapest match-day ticket has gone from £16 to £22.

The Dens Park side, who won last year's Championship, offer cheap and expensive options for match-day and season tickets, while Accies charge a flat rate for both types.

Champions Celtic's ticket prices are unchanged, except in their most expensive season ticket category, which has increased from £509 to £600.

Clubs in the top flight continue to try to attract younger fans, with most outfits providing offers for children.

Any supporter buying a season ticket in the family stand at St Mirren gets up to three child season tickets for free.

Partick Thistle offer free entry to under-16s on match-days and fans in that age group can apply for free season tickets.

The Maryhill club said: "Partick Thistle is committed to encouraging the future generation of Partick Thistle fans to come to Firhill as regularly as possible."

At St Johnstone, under-12s get in free with a paying adult and Motherwell's adult season tickets come with two free tickets for under-16s.
