Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been taking to Twitter to share their reaction to the club’s season ticket announcement earlier this evening.
It was revealed by the club in a statement on the official site that there will be an increase to season ticket pricing for the 2020/21 campaign.
The club were quick to state that the increase is below the rate of inflation with a price increase of between £12 and £33 for adult tickets and between £6 and £9 for concessions.
Many fans have reacted with frustration to the announcement and have called for cup games to be included within the season ticket package.
Spurs currently face a battle to break into the top four of the Premier League and are currently at risk of not playing in the Champions League for the first time in five seasons.
The club have set a deadline of May 1st for renewals, before the season has ended or they will be released to One Hotspur + Members on the Season Ticket Waiting List.
Here are the thoughts of some of the North London faithful.
Cos the club really need that extra £20 or so per fan. Getting fed up with the greed at the club. Club seeming to perform financially superior yet still wants more from loyal fans. Oh yeah, also, bring free cup games back.

Just an extra £1.2m and piss off 50k of fans. Seems fair.

Thirty three quid increase is pretty damn good value all things considered.

We already pay the highest prices. I can afford an extra £15 a year but for once in your fucking lives Tottenham take an opportunity to not rip the fan base off. Now I wish good luck to @THSTOfficial I know they will bombarded with complaints.

Yet people still keep defending Levy. Still think he's got our best interests at heart? It's just a business to him. All about how much money he can make as per usual.

"Whilst inflation has increased our costs, we have sought to limit the Season Ticket price increase to between £12 and £33 for Adult tickets keeping them below the actual rate of inflation"
Price increase: 1.5%
Inflation: 1.4% Dec 2019 (latest figure)
