An average fan would spend £725.10 supporting Leyton Orient 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 survey reveals O’s fans could have spent their £725.10 elsewhere by buying 72 months of music streaming, 290 cappuccinos, 15 video games or 23 grams of gold.

The east Londoners’ lowest-priced season ticket of £179 is the sixth cheapest in the league, with Woking and Sutton United the best value at £99, while Maidstone United and Dover Athletic have the most expensive at £315.

O’s performed poorly in the price per home goal category, with fans ‘spending’ exactly £10 to see the east Londoners score at Brisbane Road, one of the highest rates in the division.

The price of a replica adult Orient shirt also left fans out of pocket, with the cost of £45 a whopping £5.65 more expensive than the league average.

The cost of a replica child O’s shirt of £36 is £4.30 higher than the league average.

Orient fans are in pocket when it comes to the price of pie, which at £2.80 is 15p cheaper than the league average; a cup of tea, though, is 48p higher than the average at £1.90.

The cost of an O’s programme at £3 is 12p more expensive than the league average.

• 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.
