An average fan would spend £727 supporting Dagenham & Redbridge this season, according to the latest BBC Price of Football survey.

The results were released on Wednesday night, with data collected from clubs in the top five divisions of English football.

By adding together the cost of a club’s cheapest season ticket, TV sport subscription and adult shirt, as well as a pie, cup of tea and programme for each game, the BBC calculated how much it would cost a fan to support their club.

The survey reveals Daggers fans could have spent their £727 elsewhere by buying 72 months of music streaming, 290 cappuccinos, 15 video games or 23 grams of gold.

The Essex club’s lowest-priced season ticket of £199 is the ninth cheapest in the league, with Woking and Sutton United the best value at £99, while Maidstone United and Dover Athletic have the most expensive at £315.

Daggers did perform well in the price per home goal category, with fans ‘spending’ just £5.38 to see the Essex club score at Victoria Road – the fourth best in the league.

However, the price of a replica adult Daggers home shirt at £43 is £3.65 more expensive than the league average.

The cost of a replica child Daggers shirt of £31, though, is 70p lower than the league average.

Daggers fans are also in pocket when it comes to a cup of tea, which at £1.20 is 22p lower than the league average, and a pie, which at £2.80 is 15p lower than the league average.

However, the cost of a Daggers programme at £3 is 12p more expensive than the league average.

• The BBC surveyed all clubs from the top five men’s leagues in England, the top four Scottish leagues, the premier divisions in Northern Ireland and Wales, and the two Women’s Super Leagues. Ballinamallard, Coleraine, Crusaders, Dungannon, Linfield and Warrenpoint failed to respond.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
