Burnley's Food & Drink Amongst Cheapest in Championship

Tue 24th Jul 2012 | Money & Finance

Fans of Burnley Football Club will be pleased to hear their club is among the cheapest vendors for food and drink in the Championship.

A recent survey of fans conducted by the club indicated that only 36% of supporters purchased matchday refreshments, with over 55% claiming the reason for non-purchase was due to it being ‘too expensive’.

The online survey of over 1,200 Burnley fans was the third carried out which asks questions on all aspects of the matchday experience, from ticket prices, to catering to programme purchases, corporate hospitality and even goal music.

However, further research of Championship club matchday food and drink prices showed Burnley’s pricing structure to be highly competitive in the market.

A ground catering price comparison - among the 14 other Championship clubs who responded – showed Burnley compared favourably when it came to hot and cold drinks prices as well as having some of the cheapest prices for hotdogs and pies in the league.

Burnley’s Media Manager, Darren Bentley said of the survey: “We use these surveys to try and focus on delivering a better overall matchday experience for our supporters.

“We don’t know of any other Championship club who connects as much with their supporters and we are proud of the fact they all have a say in how we operate.”
