Spurs fans unhappy with pricing at new ground – survey

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Tottenham Hotspur fans are unhappy with the price of season tickets at their new ground, according to a survey by Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST).

For the fifth successive year, THST surveyed 3,500 Tottenham Hotspur supporters on a number of issues including ticket prices, standing and much more.

The club is due to take up residence at the new ground at the start of this coming campaign with season ticket prices ranging from £795 to £2,200, some of the most expensive in English football.

THST’s annual survey reveals that only 19% of season ticket holders are satisfied with pricing for next season – 63% aren’t.

THST said: “The Club will undoubtedly focus on the fact that, whatever fans think, they have paid for tickets.

“But when that dissatisfaction level among newer Season Ticket holders is combined with our finding that almost one in five were not certain they would renew beyond next season, the Club would do well to take note.”

The Trust has examined the amount of season tickets available at each band and says only nine sections of the new 60,000-seater ground will have season tickets available below £950, raising concerns about ordinary fans being priced out.

“Just 7% backed the introduction of the controversial premium-lite 1882 tickets,” THST say. “And just 7% said the stadium’s heavily-hyped facilities were a major influence on their decision to buy a ticket.

“Fans overwhelmingly come to watch their team.”

Tottenham Hotspur’s first game at their new ground will be against Liverpool on Saturday, September 15.
