Ah, the joys of the football season – the thrill of the game, the roar of the crowd and the tantalising aroma of greasy, calorie-laden food wafting through the air.

For many of us, the stadium snacks are just as much a part of the experience as the actual game. And that is where Footy Scran comes in – the Twitter account working tirelessly to bring us the best
(and worst) culinary offerings at football grounds across the country.

But with so many options available, which scran takes the title? And which needs relegating from the menu? BetVictor has collected the findings from every ‘Scran’ or ‘No Scran’ Twitter poll to bring you the definitive guide to eating out at the football.

So, grab a napkin, loosen your belt and get ready to score some serious snack goals.

Aston Villa’s Chicken Tikka and Chips Reigns Supreme as the Premier League’s Top Scran

When it comes to food available at Premier League matches, you will want to head over to Villa Park to find the best scran on offer. Their ‘Chicken tikka and chips’ has made its mark on the halftime snack scene with a 92.8% scran rating – a welcome change from the usual pie and pint combo.

We had high hopes for the humble hotdog, a staple of fast-food culture. But apparently, ‘The gunner dog’ at Arsenal is about as tasty as an away day draw, with a 69.3% scran rating. It is not a bad result, but you would be hoping for a win.

Make Sure to Try the Katsu Chicken with Chips if You Find Yourself at Hull City

The Football League – where the tackles are hard, and the pies are big. But it is the crispy goodness of fried chicken with the bold flavours of Japanese curry that is the hidden gem of the lower divisions.

To sample the best scran in the EFL, you will want to make your way over to Hull City’s MKM Stadium and try the ‘Katsu chicken with chips’, with a certified 95.4% scran rating.

Top 10 Mouth-watering Foods to Try at UK Football Stadiums

Move over Messi, there’s a new G.O.A.T in town – and it is the ‘Double bacon cheeseburger’ at Ashton Town Football Club. According to Footy Scran polls, this towering creation takes the crown as the top food option at UK football stadiums.

It is the kind of burger that makes your mouth water just looking at it. In fact, it is so good you might just forget you are even there to watch football – until you look up and see the scoreline.

Unless you have left your taste buds at home, you will want to stay clear of the ‘Burger’ at Aberdeen FC and the ‘Cheeseburger’ at Doncaster Rovers, both of which received 93.6% of their votes for ‘No Scran’.

Waiting in line to take a bite out of these burgers can only be compared to watching your team lose in stoppage time after being up by three goals.
