For the last two seasons, THST has argued for and achieved a freeze in match day ticket pricing and season ticket pricing. In addition, we have worked with the Club to achieve £20-£25 tickets for cup games, something that has proved very popular with supporters.
We continue to argue that position, and will reiterate it when we meet the THFC Executive Board on Wednesday evening.
Fans at other clubs, particularly Liverpool and Arsenal, have spoken out about home pricing at their own clubs, generating welcome discussion about the issue of affordable football. We hope our own Club Board will take note of prevailing opinion when deciding on home pricing for next season.
We have also been part of a national campaign lobbying for a reduction in the price of away tickets. As part of that campaign we wrote to our Club Board asking it to back a number of proposals at last week’s meeting of the Premier League clubs. These included a cap on away ticket prices, an end to away match categorisation, and price reductions for 18-21 year olds.
We have heard varying reports of how the discussion went and we will be asking the THFC Board for a clear explanation of how it argued, what it supported and how it voted at that meeting. We believe fans have a right to know how our Club’s Board acted.
At every club, supporter groups have to deal with a particular set of circumstances. These are the circumstances as they currently stand at Tottenham Hotspur. If these circumstances change, we will review our options.
We will be issuing a statement updating fans following our meeting with the Club’s Board tomorrow evening.
