The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust has slammed the club’s decision to remove the concessionary prices for senior and young adult tickets for upcoming cup ties.
Tottenham have offered lower ticket prices to fans aged over 65 and between 18-21 in previous rounds earlier this season.
However, that won’t be the case for the club’s upcoming FA Cup third-round tie with Morecambe or Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Chelsea, with tickets at a flat £25 rate on offer for both age groups.
The decision to discard the concessionary prices was quickly picked up upon by Tottenham’s official Supporters’ Trust, who labelled it ‘a low move’ given the current festive period and the club’s huge financial power.
A tweet read: “Seems the Christmas spirit is very much lacking at @SpursOfficial.
“Quietly removing concessionary pricing for Seniors and Young Adults for both Morecambe and Chelsea home cup games is a low move for one of the richest clubs in the world. Do better, Spurs. Much better.”

THST co-chair and Spurs season ticket holder Kat Law said that she was left ‘speechless’ by the club’s decision and highlighted the trust’s view with a further post packed with sarcasm.
She added: “Taking extra money off teenagers and pensioners at Christmas. Great decision by the #Spurs Board. Genuinely left speechless sometimes.”
Tottenham’s fixture against League One outfit Morecambe is set to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on January 9, either side of the club’s two Carabao Cup semi-final legs against London rivals Chelsea.

This is a bit of a bad move from Spurs considering people will only just be coming out of the festive period. The THST are there to hold the club to account with things like this, and it isn’t the first time this season that this problem has arisen.
