I remember reading a while back about three Chelsea fans from Kent (IIRC). It was cheaper for them to buy an annual ferry ticket and a season pass for Le Havre FC to watch top flight French football than it was to buy a season pass for Stamford Bridge. The football clubs and the media have done a wonderful job of selling the EPL as the best thing since sliced bread but unfortunately this is backfiring on the average man in the street who is being squeezed more and more. Professional football has become a rich person's pastime in England. A colleague of mine pays £18 to watch fifth rate football at Grimsby! If only we could think of a sport that gives far better value for money than football. Richard, you need to do some missionary work in Scouseland.
I know someone who did similar, though it was a fair while ago. He bought a season ticket for one of the Milan clubs and booked his flights in advance. From memory, he paid under fifty quid fit the season ticket and could get return flights for thirty-odd quid.
