A report announced by the Liberal Democrats found that Premier League clubs charge too much for a pint of beer.

CHELSEA CHARGE £4 A PINTDuring the current economic climate, many people will be looking at ways to cut back and save a few pennies, Chelsea supporters may not need to look much further than their half time pint to cut back.

In a report announced by the Liberal Democrat party, Premier League clubs have been researched to see how much they charge their supporters for a pint of beer and Chelsea, unsurprisingly sit top of the table;

Don Foster, the Lib Dem spokesman for culture, media & sport;

As if extortionate ticket prices weren’t bad enough, top flight football clubs are charging over the odds for a pint. This blatant profiteering should not continue to go unnoticed.

When will Premier League football clubs learn to stop taking their loyalty for granted?

The national average for a pint is £2.76, with only Wigan charging less than that, whilst Chelsea are charging £1.24 above the country’s average.

Is this another case of football clubs exploiting their fans, or should fans pay more for a pint during a game?

    4 pounds for a pint isn’t that bad. At baseball game here in the USA they charge $8 (5.5 pounds) for a beer (less than 3/4 of a pint). You guys are lucky.
