The BBC's Price of Football study asked 232 clubs across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and Europe to submit information. Data has been analysed from cheapest and dearest matchday tickets, including online prices, cheapest and dearest away tickets, cheapest and dearest season tickets plus pies, tea, shirts and programmes.
According to the BBC's Price of Football study, which asked 232 clubs across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and Europe to submit information, the average cost of a season ticket for supporters of teams in Sky Bet League One has gone down over the last twelve months.

The study reveals that the average season ticket and single matchday ticket prices in League One have been cut for the 2017/18 campaign with the cheapest season ticket, on average, costing £279.58 - down from £283.56 for 2016/17. The average cost of the cheapest home adult matchday ticket is £19.19 compared to last year's £20.10.
