West Ham have threatened legal action against London Stadium owners and Delaware North over food & beverage prices at our home ground.
There has been uproar amongst fans and the footballing community alike over the revised prices for this new season, which has seen a pint of lager costing now £7.30.
The changes has meant our home ground now has the most expensive prices in the Premier League, and West Ham have now confirmed that action has been taken in which temporary reductions will be in effect for tonights match.
A statement from the club has read:
West Ham United can confirm discussions are ongoing with London Stadium and Delaware North to reduce food and drink concession prices on matchdays.
In the interim period, food and beverage prices in all general admission areas at London Stadium will be reduced for tonight’s UEFA Europa Conference League tie against Viborg FF, but not to the satisfaction of West Ham United. If the Club does not get a satisfactory resolution, it will commence legal proceedings against London Stadium.
The food and beverage concession agreement clearly states that prices must not be greater than the mean average of equivalent prices charged at comparable clubs. Whilst we have made some progress, current prices do not reflect that. The Club will not rest until a satisfactory outcome is agreed for our supporters.
