Newcastle United offers the cheapest day out for an adult fan in the Premier League, according to a report released on Thursday.

BBC Sport's annual Price of Football study looked at prices for 166 clubs in ten divisions across British football, recording prices for the most expensive and cheapest season tickets and adult matchday tickets, as well as the cost of a tea, a pie and a programme - to calculate the cheapest possible day out at a match.

And the Magpies came out shining thanks to the top flight's cheapest matchday ticket and overall day.

When it comes to an individual matchday tickets, United's cheapest adult seat is just £15 for Category C matches - which you can purchase for the upcoming Premier League fixture against Hull City.

Only Cardiff, Manchester City and Norwich (all £20) come close to matching that.

Combining that ticket with a matchday programme (£3), a pie (£3) and a cup of tea (£2.20) makes a trip to a Newcastle Premier League fixture potentially cost just £23.20 - the cheapest in the division.

The Magpies' cheapest adult season ticket is competitively priced at just £530 - working out at an average of just under £28 a game across the course of the top flight season.

St. James' Park is also home to the largest family enclosure in Europe, at more than 8,000 seats, where a combined adult and junior season ticket costs just £483, making watching Premier League football on Tyneside fantastic value for money.
