Mansfield Town were happy with how the club came out of this week’s BBC Sport’s Price of Football study, which analysed how much fans are charged at 207 clubs.

The survey showed Stags fans pay the second lowest price for a prime position season ticket behind Bury, they also pay a little above average for the whole traditional matchday experience of admission, programme, pie and tea.

A club spokesman said: “The survey shows that our pricing structure is reasonable, compared with fellow clubs in League Two.

“Whilst the report is of real interest, It may have been preferential to have seen an even deeper analysis in the report, such as including terracing figures from other clubs and even special offers which clubs promote.

“One omission in the report was of our cost-effective family ticket, where two adults and two children can watch a home match at One Call Stadium for just £40 and potentially save up to £28.

“The club has continued to make it cost effective for our next generation of supporters, with children under the age of six admitted into the ground for free, when accompanied by a paying adult.”

“Additionally, we are also pleased to have kept the same home shirt for two consecutive seasons, which we know has been appreciated by our supporters.”
