We take a look at ticket prices for sports events

Season tickets can be a good way around forking out for the high prices. Although the season ticket is not cheap in the first place, the saving per match is considerable compared to the cost of buying an individual ticket each match day. This is particularly the case for followers of a particular club. Football and rugby clubs are typical examples of season tickets being a great saving for fans.

Tickets for sports can usually be obtained at club and semi-professional level from the club itself or the venue. You may find however at smaller venues that there is no choice over where to sit if indeed, there are any seats at all: it could be all standing.

For major sporting events such as the races or international matches, again you should be able to obtain tickets from the venue, but you may also find better deals from the various ticketing agencies. For ticket prices for sports events, try Seatwave, Viagogo, Ticketmaster, Ents24 and Ticketline and compare the prices: as these agencies are in direct competition with one another, they sometimes have great deals. Do be aware however that they often charge a booking fee. Check the small print next to the booking form if you are doing it via  the website.

For the upcoming Olympics, applications for  tickets are now being taken. Tickets cost from £20 and for pensioners and those under 16 years old, the cost is £16 per ticket. Visit the official Olympics website for more details.
