Daniel Levy was quoted on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Monday evening, and fans have taken to Twitter to remonstrate with him.
Tottenham unveiled some new pictures of the stadium in progress on Monday, but also details of the season ticket prices, some of which are eye-wateringly high.
The message from Levy on Monday afternoon read, “It will be our home for generations to come and we want it to be exceptional.”

There’s no doubting that the stadium looks sensational, but fans are concerned at the pricing and took to Twitter to take issue with Levy.
One fan said he wouldn’t be renewing as it was far too expensive and he wasn’t even guaranteed a Cup final ticket.
Another said that loyal supporters on a low income wouldn’t be able to afford it, and wouldn’t be able to watch the “club they’ve supported for many years”.
One simply asked Daniel Levy if he would leave.
Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans concerned that they’re going to be priced out from watching their club play next season:
It will be our home for years for those who can afford the rise in ticket prices. Loyal supporters on a low income will not be able to afford the increase, and be able to watch the club they have supported for many years.

Hope you haven't outpriced the fans you are looking to create the atmosphere why put premium seats in the one tier stand, doesn't make sense. To get a corresponding seat where l Sat in old stadium would cost over 350 pounds more.

Our… well that’s if you can afford the 40% pay hike

I won't be renewing my ST, costs far to much, add in….
I'm in the 6th group/window for buying.
I'll have a very slim chance of an FA semi cup ticket, no chance of a final ticket, absolutely no chance of an away ticket.
I'd be cheaper buying an FA ST

I want it to be under £900 for a bloody season ticket

Thanks for sending us to Wembley for a year to increase travel costs, then increasing season ticket prices for next year aswell as taking away the 2 cup tickets that usually come with the season ticket 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
