Doncaster Rovers can lay claim to a mid-table position in League One when it comes to the cost of watching them, according to a BBC study.

The annual Price of Football study, published this morning by the BBC, examines the cost of everything from season tickets, to match-day programmes and refreshments.

It found that the cost of watching football in Britain has dropped or remained the same for the majority of fans, with over 70 per cent of ticket prices across the country frozen or reduced ahead of the 2015/16 season.

Doncaster Rovers’ cheapest adult ticket costs £23, which is higher than the League One average of £20.27.

Only the cheapest tickets at Southend United (£24), Bradford City (£25) and Blackpool (£24) are higher.

Rovers’ dearest ticket is £24 - an amount lower than 11 of their League One rivals.

When it comes to season tickets, the cheapest at Rovers is £299 - the ninth highest in the division. Bradford City’s £149 season ticket is the cheapest by some margin.

Doncaster’s most expensive season ticket is £419 - the 12th dearest in League One.

A pie and a cup of tea at the Keepmoat Stadium amounts to £5.10, according to the study.

Derby County, Reading and Huddersfield’s £10 match-day ticket is the cheapest in the top five leagues in England. While the most expensive is Arsenal, where a match-day brief will cost you £97.
