Two thousand football aficionados were polled to determine what they spent on shirts, match tickets, food and drink at games, and more between May 2021 and May 2022.

On average £46.70 was spent on replica tops – with 81 per cent paying slightly more to have a name printed on the back of their strip.

Those polled went to seven games on average at Bloomfield Road – splashing out £218 on tickets and £380.33 on refreshments.

Eighty-eight per cent of fans of Michael Appleby’s side opted to buy a season ticket which cost them £373.70 on average.

Next season has plenty of promise

A spokesperson for 888sport said: “The EFL is a notoriously challenging league.

“So while some fans might be somewhat despondent about last season’s 16th place finish, many big teams have fared much worse – languishing in League One for long spells.

“With this in mind – and the return of a popular manager – next season has plenty of promise.”

Seasiders fans made the journey to seven matches away during the last 12 miles – travelling 487 miles in total.

After avoiding relegation last season supporters will be hoping the ‘Pool finish higher next season – especially following the return of Michael Appleton to the dugout.

Fifteen per cent will definitely be betting on the side winning the division - as they do this every year without fail.

But perhaps even more supporters will be having a punt on securing the championship after Appleton’s return was announced on June 17th.
