"It's a joke" - Furious football fan shares food prices at Women's World Cup

A furious football fan shared how much food costs at the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Twitter user Matt Vandenberg laid bare the eye-popping prices at the Sydney Football Stadium for South Korea’s clash with Colombia on Tuesday.

Vandenberg posted a snap of the food menu at the game, playfully labelling the prices “scrandelous”.

The Chook Pack was the most expensive item on the menu coming in at $65, which is around £34.


Elsewhere, a bucket of chicken was priced at some £23, making it almost £5 more expensive than KFC’s 21-piece chicken offering.

Meanwhile, the popcorn chicken and chips were priced at £12.05 while the Snack Pack was £29.86. Furthermore, the buffalo wings were priced at £11.

The hefty prices led to much backlash among stunned Twitter users.

One person wrote: "You don't find these prices in any other stadium around the world. Only Australia. It's a joke."


Another added: "65.50 for food jeez." A third said: "Hmmm, I do like chicken but not inflation."

A fourth person commented: "If you're paying any of those prices you need help." Meanwhile, one user simply wrote: "InFIFAlation."


England vs Denmark preview


England fans will not be deterred by the enormous food prices provided the Lionesses can claim a win against the toughest Group D challengers, Denmark, on Friday morning at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney, Australia.

Sarina Wiegman’s side edged past debutants Haiti in the opener on Sunday, claiming the win via Georgia Stanway’s first-half penalty.

The Danes also tasted victory in the opener, scoring an 89th-minute winner to beat China 1-0.

Of course, the Lionesses are the defending European champions, having won all six of their games at the tournament they hosted last summer.


However, England have not scored from open play since the Finalissima in April when they beat Brazil on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Wembley.

Moreover, Wiegman’s side entered the tournament without Euro 2022 winners Beth Mead, Fran Kirby and captain Leah Williamson, who are all missing the due to injuries sustained in the build-up to the competition.
