An average fan would spend £973.39 supporting Queens Park Rangers 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 west Londoners’ lowest-priced season ticket of £400 is the fourth highest in the Championship, with Birmingham City the best value at £230, while Norwich City have the most expensive at £500.

QPR performed poorly in the price per home goal category, with fans ‘spending’ £13.33 to see Rs score at Loftus Road, the fifth-highest rate in the league.

The price of a replica adult QPR shirt also reflected badly, with the cost at £46.99 higher than the league average by 45p.

The cost of a replica child Rs shirt of £36.99 is 62p higher than the league average.

QPR fans are also out of pocket when it comes to the price of a cup of tea, which at £2.20 is 15p higher than the league average, and a pie, which is 18p higher than the league average at £3.60.

A programme, though, is 10p cheaper than the league average at £3.

• 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.

* The statistics in this piece differ from those given by the BBC, with QPR claiming the price of a cup of tea is £2.20, not the £3.20 that has been reported.
