This year’s Premier League season has been a sensation one for almost every fan. Whilst some clubs are struggling more than others, there is no doubt that certain sides are playing the best football we’ve seen in the league for years. However there is one side that has been head and shoulders above the rest – Manchester City.
At the start of the season, the odds on sites which allow you to bet on the Premier League suggested that Manchester City would end up winning the Premier League title. Despite being favourites for the trophy, City still managed to perform expectations as they secured the title in the joint-fastest time and are on course to break the Premier League point-record total and surpass the 100 point mark.
It would be very surprisingly to see a single Manchester City fan who was disappointed with this season considering that this team will go down as one of the greatest teams in Premier League history, but there will be fans of other teams which will have been disappointed with the season their team has had.
At the bottom of the table, West Bromwich Albion look set to be heading to the Championship as they are nine points from safety with just a maximum twelve points left to grab. Following a successful 2016-17 season where they managed to finish in an impressive 10th position, fans headed into this season full of optimism and were hoping that the club would look to improve their league position.
Despite some high-profile and big money transfers being made, this season has not gone to plan with the club set to be playing Championship football despite having established international players in the squad.
Fans invest a significant amount of their own money into the club every season in order to watch their team in action and receive the best match day experience. The majority of football fans are aware that their team is unlikely to win every match they visit, but all they ask is to be entertained.
The majority of clubs do manage to do this by usually putting in sensational performances on the pitch which excites the fans. These performances, along with getting more and more fans into the stadium, means that an incredible atmosphere is generated which benefits the home team and unsettles the away team. In celebration of the fans involvement in the games since the league was created in 1992, this infographic has been created which breaks down the average cost that a fan would have to spend to follow their team in the Premier League this season.
