Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are among the Premier League sides that do NOT charge a fee to become a club mascot, according to new findings.
All six of the so-called Premier League ‘Big Six’ don’t charge for a child mascot, despite initial findings from Football Stadium.co.uk suggesting otherwise.
Tottenham’s package for mascots, for example, includes a pre-match meet with club players, an autograph opportunity, match tickets and a replica kit.
Defending Premier League champions Manchester City follow the same non-fee mascot position much like Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and United.
Other Premier League clubs that don’t charge include the likes of Brentford, Fulham, Newcastle and Southampton.
Everton, much like Tottenham, offer incentives that include a full kit as well as two tickets.
Posted below are the fees that each Premier League club charges for a mascot.
Aston Villa: £150 to £185
Bournemouth: £264 to £300 (Category A & B)
Brighton and Hove Albion: £225 to £350
Crystal Palace: £100 to £375
Leeds United: free

Manchester United: free
Newcastle United: free

West Ham United: £175 to £375 (Category A, B and C)

Despite different Premier League clubs adding incentives as part of their packages for mascots, fans were shocked to see the prices and insisted that it “should always be free.”
One fan asked: “It costs money?”
Someone else claimed: “Worse thing is that’s an increase from previous seasons as well.”
Another Twitter user added: “It’s not free? WTF.”
“It should always be free,” a fourth tweeted.
While one fan said: “This can’t be right... mascots [are] a free experience... No?”
