Tottenham Hotspur branded as ‘disgraceful’ by furious fans after increasing ticket prices
| Last updated
Furious fans have blasted Tottenham Hotspur after the club decided to increase ticket prices ahead of the 23/24 season.
Spurs fans had to endure a torrid 22/23 season as the team produced a series of disappointing performances.
Manager Antonio Conte was eventually sacked as their season fizzled out with a poor eighth-placed finish in the Premier League.
With fans already not in the best of moods, the club have angered them even more as match day ticket prices have been increased ahead of the new campaign.
As reported by The Sun, tickets for the majority of the stadium have been increased by as much as £13 per match.
The lowest cost for a Category A fixture ticket will now be £65 and this price will only be available in two blocks.
Some of the higher-priced seats will now cost an eye-watering £103.
Fans were quick to show their discontent on social media.
One said: “Absolute disgrace, and sliding Newcastle in as a CAT A opponent too…”
Another tweeted: “We really need to know the justification for this. Worst finish in years, worst football I can remember and a vile atmosphere for most of last season. Also, Newcastle have a good season and are now Cat A?”
A third fan added: “£88 now to sit in my old seat. Completely priced out now, except for the FA Cup concession ticketing and/or pre-season friendlies. Shameful from @SpursOfficial.”
On the back of the price increase, Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust said: “Our ticketing team was informed of the plans to increase match day pricing on Friday morning.
“The Club is aware THST lobbied for a price freeze on all match day pricing and, having been informed this morning, we along with the wider fanbase have been told rather than consulted.
“This must change if dialogue is to happen and supporter input is genuinely desired. The Club knows this is something THST cannot support and we feel an increase of this magnitude is excessive.”
They continued: “Our match tickets are already amongst the most expensive in the Premier League and fans should not have to dig further into their pockets when they are already seeing their living standards squeezed by the cost-of-living crisis.”
