7) Set yourself an entertainment budget!
Whether you’re planning to watch the games with friends at home or down the pub, it’s always worth having an idea of how much you will spend – we know how easy it is to get carried away, particularly after a win!
According to the latest figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) (as of April 2023) the average pint of draught lager in a UK currently stands at £4.50. Obviously, this price varies greatly depending on where you live and where you are drinking. For example, the price of an average London pint is going to be much higher than a quiet country pub. In fact, the average cost of a London pint is predicted to reach £9.99 by 2025! With all this in mind, you may decide to watch the game with friends at home with a six pack from the local supermarket rather than in your local pub! Don’t forget to factor in the cost of snacks and nibbles too!
