English Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur has revealed a price hike for its match day tickets, despite keeping season ticket prices the same for the 2023-24 campaign.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) has criticised the club’s plan to increase match day tickets.
In a statement, THST said: “The Club is aware THST lobbied for a price freeze on all match day pricing and, having been informed this morning (Friday), 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. 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.”
Tottenham announced in April that it had opted to freeze the price of season tickets for the upcoming campaign due to the cost-of-living crisis.
There will be seven on-sale windows throughout the season, with tickets to two or three matches put on sale at the same time.
There will now also be six Category A fixtures, which is the most expensive ticket, as Newcastle United has been bumped up from Category B. Nottingham Forest has also been moved up to Category B.
There are nine Category B matches and four Category C matches.
Adult ticket prices for Category A matches begin at £65 (€76/$83) and reach as high as £103, while Category B tickets will start at £48 and increase to £95. Category C tickets will cost from £37 up to £80.
One Hotspur+ members will be continued to be given a 24-hour priority window to purchase match tickets, before tickets become available to all members the following day.
The on-sale date for Tottenham’s first three home Premier League matches of the season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, against Manchester United, Sheffield United and Liverpool, will be open to One Hotspur+ members on Monday July 24, with the member on-sale to take place the following day.
