Tottenham fans have gone berserk on Twitter after the club announced their season ticket prices for next season.
Spurs confirmed on their official website the details of the new pricing for tickets at the club’s new North London stadium.
The 62,000-seater arena is due to open for the beginning of the 2018/19 season and it was clear that there were going to be a lot of price rises to come with the improvement.
However Spurs fans are not too happy about it on Twitter.
One angry supporter claimed that the new pricing was “shameful”, while another dubbed it as a “joke”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

£975 to sit in the back of the upper tier in a corner? Really?

Joke prices though but that was always expected

Prices are a joke, thanks for not thinking of the real fans that have followed this club through thick and thin, you could easily have kept the prices the same and used the sponsorship / tv money to subsidise the cost, so disappointed but not surprised #enic

Shameful prices ???? I suppose you had to pay for the chesse room somehow

So, my cost has gone from about £1000 to £1500 for an equivalent seat, and that's for 19 games instead of 21. Ouch. #AMF

Spurs’ new stadium will boast a stunning amount of facilities never seen before in English football, including the longest bar in the UK that stretches the entire length of one of the goal lines.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been playing at Wembley this season and although there were worries about Tottenham’s form at the national stadium, they have more than found their feet there.
One issue on the pitch is how they will readjust yet again to a new home.
They do not have to look too far from home to see how a change in stadium can upset a team with Arsenal taking a while to settle down at the Emirates.
