Spanish Football League Clubs' Season-Ticket Rates Feature Vast Price Range
Every year, the marketing departments of Spanish football clubs "look to sell the same thing as the previous year, but with a new ingredient: the excitement of competing in the Champions League or the excitement of promotion," among other things, according to Darío Ojeda of EL CONFIDENCIAL. One thing "is clear: buying season tickets is worth it for fans who regularly attend matches." Among the top European leagues, "based on figures from '13," the Spanish Football League (LFP) had the most expensive single-game tickets. Seeing one game cost between €31 ($42) and €154 ($207), while in the Premier League, single-game tickets ranged from €36 ($48)-€73 ($98). However, "prices for season tickets are not as expensive." In both La Liga and the Spanish second division, the prices for season tickets "are much more in touch with reality" than the prices for single-game tickets. For '14-15, the average of all La Liga teams' most expensive season tickets costs €776 ($1,040), not counting VIP or box seats. The average cheapest season ticket across all clubs costs €228 ($307). Both of those figures are "lower than what fans pay for the EPL." The cheapest La Liga season ticket this year will be at Levante at a price of €130 ($175), while Real Madrid will lead the league with the price of its most expensive season ticket -- €1,840 ($2,480) (EL CONFIDENCIAL, 7/23).
