    Matchday Tickets


    0 Not allowed!
    My nephew will be in Brighton on weekend of Tottenham game and asked if I could get tickets. Would prefer in same stand as me so can meet up before. Have just looked tickets are £58 and he has said wont go. Take it, as its Spurs it will sell out whatever price, but in general who pays these prices. Not those that cant afford a ST or those that can only go to half of games so assume it is one off tourists
    After a good start to season see still 800 available for Saturday and email today offering 2 for £45 v Burnley. Appreciate holiday season but is there a sign that people are becoming reluctant to pay these matchday prices

      Get him one in the North and meet in town for a few beers first.

      But agreed, match day tickets are far too expensive. However the whole time they are selling out or almost selling out, who can argue the price point is wrong.

      Spurs 1 for £45 in the NS have a drink outside the ground and meet up in the north for a drink at final whistle or ring the club and see if you can swap your expensive seat for a north stand one for the match and try and find two together

      You think ?

      The 800 will more or less sell out (similar last week at this stage wasnít it ?), even though itís in the middle of the holidays. Weíll be 99%+ sold out all season for PL games (particularly if Potterís magic continues). With 8000 on the waiting list I donít think thereís a reluctance.

      Season ticket waiting list is different to match day tickets. If I didnt have a season ticket I would barely go.

      You donít speak for the other 8000 though.......there arenít enough seats for half of them to go to any game.

      Not sure why you're surprised. It's a Cat A game. A season ticket is £600+ so whilst someone might not be able to afford that it doesn't mean they can't treat themselves to the odd match at £58! That said, I assume you're in west lower and there are tickets for £52 so not sure why you highlighted the expensive ones there!

      Out of interest, how much did your nephew expect to pay?

      As for tourist, you need purchase history generally to get a ticket. There aren't many available as I think there are about 22k season ticket holders, plus about 3k 1901 and 3k away fans so about 2k left for general sale!

      Said for years on here the prices are a disgrace match by match - particularly cat A & B games. Always get met with ‘they will sell out though’ - which means **** all really as they will mainly be day trippers or rich people or glory supporters. The real fans are priced out. Also get people saying ‘not bad price with travel’ - well not everyone uses the free travel so that’s not a major factor. Again, I’m a STH so it isn’t personal or selfish of me to make this argument - I genuinely feel for those real fans who don’t have a ST. Best thing to do is find a mate who can’t go and bung them the pro rata rate or they may give it to you as a freebie if you have enough mates who go - although the club warn against this for selfish reasons (wanting the money from match by match sales or reselling the ticket and making a profit on the exchange by selling the seat twice and only giving the STH X amount back. Still unfair and home tickets in football should be capped at £30 like they are away tickets in the prem. the Sky money means ticket prices count for little - start treating loyal fans with more respect BHA & most clubs of the prem league etc...

      Not many times I criticise us as we get most things right but this is a big one for me.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, thatís it. We have done it.

      Yup. Too much for me. Took my 8 year old lad to Cambridge Utd vs Scunthorpe Utd last night. OK - bottom tier league football but he loved it and so did I. Proper football and a game that had everything; a straight red, 5 goals, and a come-back for a home win. Only £23 for both of us, really friendly folk sat around us, a big fuss from CUFC as they figured out it was his first game and he can’t wait to go again. Everyone’s a winner.

      Agree should be capped at £30 like away games..........more will come more regularly, no. of day trippers reduces.......better atmosphere etc. As long as it keeps selling out at higher prices canít see it happening though. Weíre no different to most other PL clubs.
