A pie and a cup of tea at Carrow Road will set you back £5 this season - making it one of the most competitive in the Championship according to the BBC Sport Price of Football 2016 study.

Norwich City refreshments are only beaten on price at Wigan, Preston, Burton and Brentford in the second tier of English football.

The same deal of a pie and a cuppa would set you back £6.50 at Craven Cottage, the same hit to the wallet as fans get at West Ham's new home in the old Olympic stadium.

The study also found the cost of attending Premier League football has come down in the first season of a record £5.316bn TV rights deal.

It can now be more expensive to buy an away ticket at a Championship game than in the Premier League.
