The top of the league table is dominated by Glasgow and Edinburgh clubs, with Hibernian, Rangers and Celtic the most expensive places to watch football in Scotland at £22 for the cheapest ticket.

Hearts provided value in the capital however with entry to Tynecastle costing just £17 at the bottom of the price range.

Despite their own price structure, Inverness Caledonian Thistle attracted only 3,600 spectators to their first home match of the season -

Rangers meanwhile attracted 49,083 fans to - less than 2,000 short of Ibrox's capacity.

There have been some concessions to fans' finances however.

St Johnstone have reduced their matchday programme in size and cost and for the new season, while St Mirren offer free beans with every pie purchased.
