Town and Burn­ley cheap­est for a pint

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

HUD­DER­S­FIELD Town and Burn­ley of­fer the cheap­est pint of beer for Pre­mier League foot­ball fans, with Chelsea the most ex­pen­sive, ac­cord­ing to a study.

A pint costs £3.20 at the two north­ern grounds, com­pared with £4.80 at Stam­ford Bridge, re­search by bet­ting firm OddsMon­key found.

Cardiff City Sta­dium has the most ex­pen­sive mark-up, with a pint in the ground cost­ing £4.30 – that’s £1.30 more than the av­er­age price in the city.

Arse­nal and West Ham’s grounds are cheaper than head­ing to lo­cal pubs, sav­ing fans 3p if they drink in the sta­dium – both £3.90 in the grounds, said the re­port.

The re­search also found that many pubs close to foot­ball grounds do not serve fans of op­po­si­tion teams.

Peter Wat­ton, of OddsMon­key, said: “It was no sur­prise that the price of a pint in Burn­ley’s cen­tre is con­sid­er­ably cheaper than the prices in Lon­don. How­ever, what was sur­pris­ing to us was the amount of pubs that don’t ac­cept away sup­port­ers and how dif­fi­cult it is to find some­where that does.”
