Just for a bit of context, here reads a statement published on the club’s website on the 5th of April 2023.
It reads as follows:
“We should like to take this opportunity to thank our season ticket holders for their support throughout the current campaign. The focus is now on getting behind Cristian [Stellini], the coaching staff and the team for the remaining games as we fight for the highest possible Premier League finish.
“Due to global economic events we, like all other sectors, are not immune to rising costs and disruption to supply chains, along with higher energy prices. We are, however, acutely aware that everyone is also currently impacted by the rising cost of living. With this in mind, and following consultation with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust, we can confirm that season ticket prices for the 2023/24 season will be frozen.”
“We recognise and greatly appreciate the ongoing commitment our fans continue to make in showing support for the team.
“Once again, we shall be working with V12 Finance to offer a payment option to supporters wishing to spread the cost of their season ticket across 10 months. Subject to approval, payments will commence in June and continue for a further nine months. If you wish to pay via V12 Finance, your loan will be subject to a one-off arrangement fee (admin fee) of 5.79%.”
Match-Day Prices have risen by 20%
Though it has not come as a surprise, the short-lived positioning of the board’s ‘generosity’ has come to an abrupt end.
Tottenham generates roughly £5m for every home game played. (Football)
If you’re to average it at just about 16 non-major footballing events – such as a Beyonce concert, at £3m each, that’s an impressive £48m.
Coupled with Champions League Football, the stadium could easily generate at least £175m every year.
Last year, a Category A match ticket in the average supporter’s seat stood at £65. The price for next season has risen to £78, a 20% increase if you’re to rent yourself a seat.
Not only is Daniel Levy the highest-paid chairman in the League, but there’s also soon to be an announcement of a World Record matchday revenue of £125m.
Levy’s personal earnings surged to a handsome figure of £3.265m in 2022, compared to his already large retirement fund of £2.698m the previous year.
With these undeniable numbers, it’s hard to understand why there’s currently an issue surrounding the recruitment of both Tapsoba and van de Ven.
If Levy and friends are to truly raise the ticket prices to such horrendous benchmarks, at least justify such actions by being more aggressive in the transfer window.
Levy’s manipulative spurts of pretending to run an actual football club is beginning to feel rehearsed.
Not to mention his MASSIVE £500,000 ‘reward‘.
