Of course, we understand that globally costs have increased enormously. We know that the impact of Brexit on supply has been highly detrimental in many ways, including financially. We also understand that the pandemic has meant that labour patterns have changed and that the Club, along with everyone else, has felt the brunt of these price hikes.
At a time when supporters are already getting anxious about a perceived lack of investment in on pitch matters, a price hike like this in time for the North London Derby feels insensitive in the extreme.
We have asked the Club to look at finding ways to serve more affordable food options via the mobile hawkers and to ensure that they are available throughout the stadium. We have also urged THFC not to impose any further price rises this season and to absorb any further increases themselves.
We know how hard the catering team work to get it right, but these price hikes make it increasingly likely that supporters will shop around for affordable match day experiences. It’s in all of our interests to keep the prices down, build up the pre and post match atmosphere in the stadium and enable all supporters to enjoy the full benefits of our beautiful stadium.
