With this in mind, we've once again teamed up with the experts at Onefootball, the worlds #1 football app, to compile and calculate the costs of attending a top division game in 25 countries, and included factors like bus, train, and air transport to an away game as well as accommodation, food, and beverages during the matches. In a separate calculation, we ranked the leagues based on quality of the football played by their teams, using several world rankings including UEFA, FIFA, and third party databases. Finally, we weighed each league's ranking against the average cost of a first league ticket.
Naren Shaam, CEO of GoEuro said: "It costs almost the same to travel to Germany to see a Bundesliga match as it does to stay in the UK and attend a Premier League game. Each week more than 2,000 British fans travel to see Borussia Dortmund play, in addition to the 1,500 Brits travelling to St. Pauli games in Hamburg and the 1,000 Brits going to Union Berlin games on a weekly basis. These numbers might lead you to question whether home fans in the UK are really getting a fair deal for their money.''
