West Ham chief aims dig at Spurs over ticket prices

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has taken aim at Tottenham’s ticket-price structure.

The Hammers have been criticised for their move to the London Stadium, which has coincided with a downturn in form on the pitch.

The club’s bitter rivals Tottenham were outbid for the former Olympic Stadium, but are moving to a new home themselves after temporarily departing White Hart Lane for Wembley.

But Sullivan, while praising Spurs owner Daniel Levy, has questioned their ticket prices.

“I think Daniel Levy has done a fantastic job at Tottenham,” he told the Guardian. “But his cheapest season-ticket price will be three times ours.

“There might be a tiny little corner with 200 kids he calls the family stand. Maybe we should have gone a different route and borrowed it all. We would have bankrupted the club.”

On the London Stadium, Sullivan added: “We’re about £10m a year better off. It’s not going to change our lives.

“I just think we feel like a big club. Not a tinpot club. When players come to look at West Ham, they look at where you play.”
