Season Tickets at Tottenham Hotspur are easily among the most expensive in the division, as are prices for individual, categorised league games. The Club has an opportunity to show flexibility and recognition of commitment and cost with domestic cup pricing, especially after removing any cup credits from the Season Ticket package. To elect to charge 150% more for the replay than the original tie is unacceptable. Let’s remember that, under FA Cup rules, the host team sets the pricing. And that THFC had previously committed to an accessible pricing policy for home Cup games since 2014. Whilst the game has been kept out of categorisation, charging both Southampton and Spurs fans more than double the price of last weekend’s game is highly regrettable, to say the least.
We are urging the Football Supporters’ Association to lobby the FA Cup Committee to review how ticket pricing is set in their competition, including exploring a potential rule change to prevent ticket prices for replays being set higher than prices for original ties.
