Highest Earning Premier League Supporters Have Been Revealed

The Premier League table of fans earnings has been revealed today, with surprises across the board.

The study, via FootballTips, ranks all 20 teams based on the average salary of their local fans. Brighton and Hove Albion were ranked champions of the table of top earners with an average salary of £43,000.

Most of the usual top six clubs were nowhere to be seen, with Chelsea, the richest borough in the country, taking second with £41,000 and Leicester a surprise third at £40,000.

For comparison, the average UK salary brings in £27,000-per-year, which is nearly half the average weekly wage of a Premier League footballer at £50,000.

Arsenal fans rank eighth, earning on average £30,000, but will yet again have to fork out the most cash to go and see their club play. The gunners cheapest season ticket is ‘only’ £891.

Premier League teams shared a ridiculous $5b from the new TV deal, yet fans are not seeing that money trickle down, as season ticket prices were once again raised by clubs, leaving them outraged.

Huddersfield Town fans will be glad to know that despite ranking joint 12thon £25,000 they can pick up their dearest season ticket for £299, last season some season tickets were offered for as low as £100.

The bottom three ranking clubs are Burnley on £21,000, West Ham on £20,000, and Cardiff City on £19,000.
