The BBC has released their Price of Football 2016 study. This is the sixth consecutive year they have conducted their comprehensive look into more than 1,500 different prices at 223 clubs across Great Britain and Europe.

More than 1,000 tickets in six categories have been looked at - the cheapest and most expensive matchday, cheapest and most expensive season tickets and cheapest and most expensive away tickets. In the matchday experience they’re also looking at the price of pies, teas, programmes and replica shirts.

Everton still come in favorably on multiple cost centres, like season tickets and the matchday experience.
