Manchester United have fallen away and Chelsea remained at the same level in the last 10 years after falling to invest in their stadiums

The study by the University of Liverpool reveals a huge disparity in what top flight teams take on match days, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs all making more than £1,500 per fan each season.

Manchester United earn £1,488, but remarkably they now make only £43 more per fan from match day than they did 10 years ago, while Manchester City take around £1,000 per fan despite huge growth over the decade as their commercial operation catches up with their on-field success.

Burnley, Everton and Wolves earn less than £400 per fan, on average.

While Premier League clubs have enjoyed spectacular rises in revenue driven by the broadcast deals, income from the match remains a vital component of their overall earnings and they want to see it grow.

As a result, the biggest clubs are working hard on how to bring in money from more expensive tickets and additional hospitality. 

At the same time, fans are complaining about the price of tickets, with more than half responding to a Football Supporters” Association survey last month saying the cost of the match is now prohibitive.

‘Clubs like Arsenal and Spurs, which have Supporters’ 60,000-capacity stadiums are charging an arm and leg for fans to watch,’ Kieran Maguire, football finance expert at the University of Liverpool, told Sportsmail.

‘Chelsea is heading to a £4,000 season ticket next year. The prices are steep, but people are willing to pay them, they are prepared to stump up.

‘Some clubs, especially the London clubs, have a fan base that is more diverse in terms of wealth.’
