The most expensive countries to buy football shirts in Europe, revealed… as the Premier League is ranked the CHEAPEST

From ticket prices and food to transport and pre-match programmes, the Premier League in particular is an expensive beast.

However, there is one area where the Prem is the cheapest in all of Europe… the replica kits.

The cost of an average Premier League kit is expensive, but relatively cheap, at £52.

When you compare that to the prices paid by our European cousins, especially Switzerland, that’s just a drop in the ocean.

Replica shirts for clubs in the Swiss Raiffeisen Super League cost an average of £77, by far the most expensive on the continent.

On top of that, the most expensive shirt would set you back £90, with the cheapest still £61 – higher than average in FIVE nations.

The German Bundesliga comes second at £71 per peak on average, followed by Serie A at £70.

The Jupiler Pro League in Belgium is the only other country in Europe to charge an average of £60 or more – at £60 on the dot.

The Austrian Bundesliga (£59) and the Dutch Eredivisie (£57) come next, with the Portuguese La Liga NOS averaging £52…tied with the Premier League.

The English top flight can easily boast the cheapest ‘most expensive’ shirt, at just £67.

The Premier League also has the second cheapest ‘cheapest’ shirt…

So while we Brits sometimes struggle on match day, at least representing our team with pride is a fraction of the price.
