Arsenal Ticket Prices

Arsenal Ticket Prices

Earlier in the season AISA announced it was opposed to a general ticket price increase for Arsenal members and season-ticket holders.

In the light of Arsenal's planned 3% increase in 2014/15 Andy Kelly from the AISA Arsenal History Society has been examining the trends in Arsenal ticket prices over the last 30 years. Andy has compiled a table that shows the following for each season from 1980/81 to 2013/14:

  • * Cost for one seat
  • * Price rise compared to the previous season
  • * Compounded price rise (i.e. the overall price rise for the seat since 1980/81)
  • * UK Retail Price Index (RPI) for the year at the end of the season
  • * Compounded RPI since 1980
  • * Average UK wage for the year to the end of the season
  • * Rise in the UK average wage compared to the previous year
  • * Compounded rise in the UK average wage (i.e. since 1980)
  • * Percentage of the ticket cost to the UK average wage
  • * Arsenal’s wage bill for the season
  • * Rise in Arsenal’s wage bill compared to the previous season
  • * Compounded rise in Arsenal’s wage bill (i.e. since 1980)
  • * Arsenal’s gate receipts for the season
  • * Percentage of Arsenal’s wage bill compared to gate receipts for the season
  • * Also included are compounded rises since the start of the Premier League

Andy says:

"I’m not taking the side of a multi-million pound corporation nor fans who feel aggrieved at the prices that are charged at the Emirates. All I’m doing is showing what has happened over the last 30+ years. I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions."  View the table and read the full story here
