The study of 2,000 followers of football what how much of their hard-earned cash went on replica strips, tickets, matchday food and drink, and more from May 2021 until May 2022.

“It’s likely many thought they’d be relegated by Christmas – especially when you throw the inexperience of Wayne Rooney as a manager into the mix.
“And not forgetting the squad was decimated following the climax of the 2020/21 season.
“But Derby almost achieved the impossible – giving it their all right til the end, meaning the manager, players, and coaching staff leave the Championship with their heads held high.”
County fans are prepared to travel far to see their favourite team
County fans travelled to six away matches on average over the last year – clocking up 656 miles in the process.
And this was despite relegation to League One.
Regardless of the disappointment there will be optimism among supporters - thanks in part due to Wayne Rooney’s decision to stay with the club next season.
As such fans will be hoping the Rams secure promotion – especially as the side is likely to be among the favourites to win the division.
Around one in 10 (eight per cent) bet on Derby to win their division every season – regardless of what league their in.
So the chances are even more will place a bet on this next time around.
