Tottenham Hotspur fans react on Twitter to new season ticket prices

Tottenham Hotspur’s new season ticket prices are slightly eye-watering.

Today saw the first details of Tottenham Hotspur’s season ticket prices for their new stadium emerge and, they have caused quite a stir. The new 62,000 seater stadium will be Tottenham’s new home from next season. It looks as though Tottenham will have the most expensive season tickets in the country.

The cheapest season ticket in the new stadium will set Spurs fans back £795. The most expensive ticket will cost a whopping £1,995.

The prices have certainly divided opinion amongst Tottenham fans. Spurs have often gloated toward their North London rivals Arsenal, as their prices are so high at the Emirates Stadium.

Now Spurs will top that and fans are going to be shelling out if they wish to attend games week-in and week-out.

Of course many Tottenham fans were understanding. The cost of a new ground has to be covered and in the long run the hope will be the prices will drop. Others are less forgiving. Compared to the prices in German football the season tickets at Tottenham are astonishing.

Tottenham fans are loyal, and whilst season tickets may be a hard sell, fans will still come in their droves.

But they will expect change at the club. Tottenham have long been paying their top stars a lot less than the clubs around them. It has always made Spurs susceptible to bids from other clubs, who could afford to double some of Tottenham’s best players pay packets.

With Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen all courted by top European teams, Spurs will expect the season ticket funds to be pumped into the first-team.

Tottenham want their star players to pay and, to do so, Daniel Levy and co need to start paying them the going rate.

If Tottenham continue to underpay their players, sell their stars and fail to invest in top talent then the club’s fans will soon resent the amount they are paying for season tickets.

Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to the season ticket prices…
