FOOTBALL fans will be crying foul over replica shirts when they realise clubs are charging them up to twice as much for the garments than they were ten years ago.
The Premier League’s big boys are among those who have made the steepest increases over a decade, with Manchester City’s supporters hit with the biggest rise of 116 per cent.
Fans who want to wear the same kit as Raheem Sterling or any of their Sky Blue heroes must stump up a whopping £64.95, while Manchester United, Spurs and Chelsea have shirts which are just as expensive as City’s.
But at the other end of the scale, Burnley’s shirts only cost a couple of quid more than a decade ago.
