Ticket trouble: Fulham charge fans up to £125 for Spurs match

Fulham have been criticised for charging supporters up to £125 in their upcoming Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Cottagers’ fans have already protested against the ownership this season due to the rise in ticket prices across the ground.

“Talk about ripping off your own fans” – £125 ticket in new Riverside Stand

Over on X.com (formerly Twitter), @AwayDays_ posted a picture of the pricing in the home end for the clash that takes place on Saturday. The caption for the post read: “The prices Fulham are charging for the upcoming game against Spurs. £125 for one ticket in the new Riverside Stand. Talk about ripping off your own fans.” In reply to this post, @col__83 said: “That’s criminal.”

 

The cheapest tickets inside Craven Cottage on Saturday are located in the Family Zone of the Johnny Haynes Stand. Some tickets in this area cost £35 for adults. However, as @AwayDays_ points out on X.com, ticket prices in some areas of the new Riverside Stand cost up to £125.

Fulham fans protest in November

Before Fulham’s league match against Manchester United on November 4, 2023, fans of the Thameside club protested against the rising ticket prices at the club.

The most expensive tickets for the match against United cost £160, with fans also pointing to the 18% rise in season ticket prices from last season.

The protest involved Fulham fans marching along Stevenage Road towards the ground with a huge sign reading, “We can’t afford to price out fans.”

In the 18th minute of the game, fans inside the ground lifted yellow cards that read: “Please don’t price us out.”
