Bromsgrove Editorial 30th Apr, 2024   0

As Euro 2024 kicks off in just a couple of months time on Friday 14th June 2024, avid football fans are already organising their plans for highly anticipated matches before ticket prices increase.

To help, Finance Experts at Cashfloat have delved into the data to reveal the most budget-friendly matches to attend. They’ve identified both the cheapest and most expensive fixtures from each of the six groups, as well as the current costs associated with attending the round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final.

Food and Drink 




The data collected revealed that Düsseldorf Arena tops the list for the highest amenity expenses, costing €12.80 for a bottle of water, beer, and sausage. Frankfurt Arena closely followed at €12.70, with Stuttgart Arena slightly behind at €12.30. Arena AufSchalke proved to be the most budget-friendly option, with costs totaling €10.40, including a mere €2.90 for a sausage.


Accommodation

The team also analysed the most budget-friendly hotels available for a one-night stay on the date of each fixture. In Group A, the cheapest option was Dream House Rent a Room, offering accommodations for Scotland vs Switzerland at just £81. Group B saw Spain vs Italy as the most affordable match, with bon marché hôtel Bochum offering rooms for just £77 for the night. For Group C, Slovenia vs Denmark had the lowest-priced accommodation at Hotel Traube, costing only £56 for the night. In Group D, Austria vs France was the cheapest option, with Parkhotel Hamburg Arena offering rooms for just £87 for the night.
