Spurs fans tell club: “Stop exploiting loyalty”

Hundreds of Tottenham Hotspur supporters staged a protest ahead of the club’s home match against Manchester United this weekend over the decision to increase matchday ticket prices for the 2023-24 season.

The north London club revealed signficant prike hikes to its matchday tickets back in July and increased the number of Category A games – a decision criticised by Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) who urged fans to protest before their first home game of the season.

A large group of fans gathered outside the stadium at 3.45pm with banners held up urging the club to reverse its decision.

Tottenam Hotspur Supporters’ Trust said: “We were encouraged by the turnout to our first demonstration for this campaign.

“It is a great starting point and one we will continue to build on. We hope the club will engage with us on this issue.

“It is important, now more than ever, that we push for a fair and sustainable ticketing strategy to prevent future and current generations of supporters from being priced out of football.

THST said the club’s decision to increase matchday tickets was “excessive” amid the ongoing cost of living crisis.

Spurs’ highest non-corporate matchday ticket is now £103 and THST state the club’s decision to increase prices “will generate approximately £2.5million” – which they say constitutes only 0.6% of the club’s total income.
