How Much Does It Cost to Live Near Your Favourite Premier League Football Club?
For football fans, being able to live near to their team’s home ground is almost as good as going to the match itself. You can soak up the atmosphere, listen to the roar of the crowd, and potentially get a view of all things going on at your club without having to spend a penny. For others though, it can be an area they would rather not live. The noise, the number of people, and perhaps the potential for trouble all steer people in the direction of wanting to sell.
We thought we would take a look at the average house costs per premier league club for the 2022/23 season. Maybe it’ll act as an incentive to buy a property close to the team you love, maybe the price will be a pleasant surprise and incentivise you to think about selling a house.
Our house price data is correct as per government figures that were made available at end of March 2022 and gives you the average house price for the local authority the football club resides within.
We have put the teams in the order they finished in the table at the end of last season with the newly promoted teams at the bottom. Then for a bit of fun, we have put them in a league table of highest increase to lowest. Where does your team fall?

13. Brentford- Brentford Community Stadium
Brentford perhaps surprised many by staying up in the Premier League, but the goals of Ivan Toney certainly helped and they will look to maintain this lucrative status again in the new campaign.

A 1.3% increase means that Hounslow property can expect to fetch around £431,343.

Despite the lack of on-field success, living near Goodison has seen prices increase with the average for Liverpool itself rising by 10.9% to £175,728.
17. Leeds United- Elland Road

18. Fulham- Craven Cottage

19. Bournemouth- Vitality Stadium
Returning to the premier league, some may expect the cherries to be a yo-yo club and find themselves bouncing between divisions. The house prices aren’t doing that though and with a 10.7% increase on last year, could this season in the elite division see them rise even more? £328,953 is now the average so could it be worth cashing in?
