Wolves fans are paying almost as much as their Albion and Villa counterparts as a study showed a fall in average ticket prices around the country.
Just two of Wolves’s League One rivals – Colchester (£322) and Port Vale (£325) – have cheaper season tickets more expensive than Molineux’s figure of £310.
But Villa have the second lowest-priced season ticket in the Premier League at £325, beaten only by Manchester City (£299). And Albion’s lowest-priced seat of £349 ranks them fifth lowest in the top flight.
Meanwhile, Walsall offer one of the cheapest season tickets in League One with their £48 Early Bird deal for under-18s – where they get £2 cashback for every home game attended – still offering free football.
Only three teams – Bradford, Coventry and Leyton Orient – in League One have cheaper season tickets than the Saddlers’ £235 adult price.
Not surprisingly, London is still the dearest place to watch football, with Arsenal fans paying £985 for the cheapest seat at the Emirates, rising to £1,955 – both the highest in the Premier League, although the first figure includes cup games.
The highest ‘cheapest’ matchday admission was at West Ham (£37).
But the BBC Price of Football study found average prices across English football’s top four divisions fell by up to 2.4 per cent.
It found Wolves and Bristol City, relegated from the Championship last season, have lowered their prices while Peterborough, who suffered the same fate, have frozen their cheapest season tickets at £275.
Wolves’ most expensive seat – £460 – is the third highest in the division behind Shrewsbury (£475) and Sheffield United (£497).
“It’s good news for fans but it comes after a long period of incremental rises,” said Sports Minister Hugh Robertson.
Last year’s study showed the average price of the cheapest ticket in English football had gone up by 11 per cent – four times the rate of inflation. But this year, average prices for the cheapest and most expensive matchday and season tickets were all down – as clubs in the Football League face up to an average five per cent drop in attendances.
In the top four divisions, the biggest fall was 2.4 per cent for the cheapest adult season ticket category, down from £344.63 in 2012 to £336.23 in 2013. The average for the cheapest adult matchday ticket is down 1.9 per cent – from £21.24 to £20.85.
