Hull City say 'highest season ticket in Championship' claim is inaccurate
HULL City say a report which claimed their season tickets prices were the highest in the Championship was inaccurate.
The Price of Football, a study by BBC Sport, yesterday claimed City's lowest priced season ticket this year had been more expensive than any other in the division.
However, the Tigers insist the report was inaccurate because City's initial discounted offer had not been included when producing the figures.
"We want to stress that this survey took our final priced season ticket and compared it with some other clubs' earliest, discounted season ticket prices," said George Hudson, City's marketing and media manager.

"Our actual, lowest, discounted season ticket price was just a little over the average.
"Also, some prices quoted for other clubs are from areas where the seats are up in the gods, that is why they are cheap.
"There are also other clubs who charge less for members, but who won't have included the fact that fans have to pay to become members in the first place.
"The survey of season tickets can't be an accurate comparison and, when put in context, we're only just over par for the course with our cheapest adult season ticket having been £385.
"This is around £17 for a Championship match
"As for matchday ticket prices, then the survey shows we are right in the middle, which I think is fair and it is where we thought we would be."
PRICES for the clash against Ipswich at the KC Stadium are £20 for adults, £10 for 16-22 year olds and Senior 65+. Prices for aged 10 and under start at £1 in the MKM South Stand.
