Colchester United are above average for their League One match pricing, as revealed by the findings of the annual BBC Sport Price of Football study, which have just been published.

In League One, the U’s – whose average attendance at the Weston Homes Community Stadium has been 3,532 this season – are above average with their pricing.

The U’s charge £320 for their cheapest season ticket and £459 for their most expensive.

There are four clubs in the division that have a more expensive ‘cheap’ season ticket (Port Vale, Oldham, Chesterfield and Peterborough), while only four – Sheffield United, Crawley, Chesterfield and Peterborough – have more expensive top-level options.

Colchester’s cheapest matchday ticket is £22 (close to the average of £20.44), but their most expensive matchday price is £30 (the average is £24.50).
