The price of a goal

A moment in time. A skillful move or a lucky break, perhaps. An explosive outpouring of joy throughout the entire stadium. A goal, the very essence of the sport. It’s the game's primary motive and the main reason fans come to the stadiums in the first place, whether it’s with religious fervour or casual interest. A celebration that some enjoy more often than others. And yet, not all fans pay the same amount to view this sought-after phenomenon. Goalnomics can tell you how much money it costs, on average, to see one goal at each stadium among the top European leagues.
