The Club told us that they had wanted to maintain the previous pricing structure of £20, £10, £5. However, Gillingham had insisted on the prices now being charged. The delay in announcing details had been because Gillingham refused to budge on the price structure, and the agreement of both Clubs is needed in the League Cup.
So we are left with a situation where, despite the wishes of THFC and THST, Gillingham have pushed up prices for both Spurs fans and their own fans.
Gillingham's fans will no doubt make their own judgement on their club's willingness to boost their coffers at fans' expense. We understand the financial value of a draw against a Premier League team, but the Gills were already guaranteed a healthy payday. The fact the club was prepared to force through a doubling of kids' prices and a 50% increase for pensioners makes their actions all the more regrettable.
For Spurs fans without season ticket voucher access to this game, this pricing will be a concern during an exceptionally busy period of fixtures.
