Mike Owens, UK trader at Saxo Markets said: “The UK is currently experiencing a significant cost-of-living squeeze. Record high prices at the pump mean that loyal football fans travelling around the country to watch their team are being hit with bigger bills than ever, now outstripping the cost of season tickets in many cases.

“When factoring in the surge in inflation’s impact on the cost of food, drink and merchandise too, it’s never been more expensive to be a match-going fan and the signs are that prices aren’t going to drop any time soon.”
