Tottenham’s headline season ticket prices at their new stadium are masking more widespread rises, the club’s supporters trust said yesterday.
Spurs announced ticketing details on Monday for their new home, which they plan to be in from next season, with the cheapest season ticket coming in at £795 and the most expensive priced at £1995.
While they are both comparable to prices in the final season at the old White Hart Lane, the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust believe other price points are too high.
A statement said: “Some fans are facing increases of 25, 40 or 50 per cent in their usual seating areas which, even taking into account the improved facilities, will be beyond many, whether they are long-standing season ticket holders or whether they signed up for the first time for the year at Wembley.”
