The Premier League vs. The Bundesliga – The facts
The success of German football in 2012/13 has caused the British public to sit up and take notice of the Bundesliga. While many people (including myself) have fallen in love with the German game, there are equally as many people out there ready to dismiss these people as ‘hipsters’. So, how does the Bundesliga really compare to the Premier League when it comes to ticket prices? I researched the price of the cheapest adult season ticket at every top flight club in England and Germany (not including discounts for senior citizens or tickets for a designated disabled section) to find out just how good the German public have it in comparison to us. With the help of designer Sean Rainey (whose graphical wizardry puts my Microsoft Paint efforts to shame), this infographic compares the differences between German and England football, without the hyperbole and exaggeration which can often be found on social media.
