A few drinks in the pub after the game is certainly priority when you consider that more than a quarter of this money – £17.17 – is spent in the pub.
That’s a fiver more than the £12.06 spent on bottled water and energy drinks necessary for keeping tired legs running around the pitch for 90 minutes, and one suspects, for keeping the arm raised at the bar counter after the game.
The second biggest expense is transport. One can only imagine that most players don’t have the luxury of a team bus, or in the case of Man Utd’s famous No. 7, a bullet-proof Mercedes Benz as they spend £12.48 a week on getting to the ground.
That leaves £20 to be split between match fees and meals before and after the game, perhaps indicating that while those in the professional ranks sit down to prawn sandwiches and champagne, the amateur masses chomp on Big Macs and fish and chips.
