Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern have been responding to a tweet put out by the club, detailing that the accessible seating season tickets for the new stadium are now available with a link to the Tottenham Hotspur website. However, a number of fans have responded to the tweet criticising their club for the extortionate prices that they’re charging for season tickets in the new stadium.
Season Ticket sales for accessible seating has opened.

On the pitch, Tottenham have impressed fans both domestically and in Europe with their displays in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League this season. Although financially, the club is failing to impress anyone, the club plans to open their new home for the start of next season after playing their home games at Wembley this season following the destruction of White Hart Lane at the end of the 2016/17 season.
Tottenham’s new home is set to be one of the best stadiums in the country, as the capacity is to jump by 26,000 from that of White Hart Lane’s 36,000 to somewhere around the 62,000 mark. The increased capacity of the ground will no doubt mean the club brings in higher profits than previously at the Lane, although fans can’t help but feel like they’ve been let down by their club. A number of Tottenham regulars are being priced out of going to watch the Lilywhites as the controversial pricing continues in N17.

I’m going to need accessible seating because I’ll need to sell a kidney to pay for a season ticket!

This season, you’ll fill it. Next season however, when it’s £60 to see us draw at home to Watford, the fair weather corporate will not be there.
