I think prices are low compared to the experience people are going to get from the stadium.
Experience??? Hahahaha. Turn up, watch football, leave stadium

Fuck the food. Fuck the bars, fuck the merchandise. Try supporting the pubs and food places around the ground rather than the greedy ****s who run our club

Thanks for the input Daniel.

My main experience I take from a game is if we win, lose or draw.
In all seriousness, for all the excitement about this stadium, it won't take long for the novelty to wear off and the real business of the football and atmosphere becomes what the experience is and what ultimately it will be judged on.

Depends whether you want or are able to sit in the south stand or not. I know its seen as the holy grail by most Spurs fans, but the provision for safe standing (which basically seem to take up half the stand) immediately takes it out of the equation for some people. I go with my Dad and as good as the South stand is it's not viable for us.

Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, but by the time Phase 3 starts I expect it will be upper tier or nothing.

It is what it is though and I'll just have to suck it up.
I for one will not be looking for a ticket in a standing area. Only just got used to having a nice seat in the dry. When I was young maybe but even then I never felt safe standing in the crush that used to go on. Now as a senior no way do I want to stand

Btw, how many nights are you thinking of booking the stadium for? We usually do 10 days All inclusive but are thinking of two weeks this year.

The season ticket holders around me at Wembley, in the cheap arse seats are hardly ever there. All match, not just late.
It's laughable people moan at some one enjoying their cheese and bickies for 5 minutes when "normal" season ticket holders just don't bother to come.
Added to that, a lot of the "normies" (that's what I'm calling them now) drink so much beer before the match and at half time they spend the whole match going back and forth to the bogs. Especially you oldies with your peanut sized bladders.

how do you know those seats are ST?

you'll find that lots of people bougth a ST at Wembley to guarantee a seat in the new stadium and had no intentions of travelling all the way to Wembley.

Well I can only speak for myself and others round me, but I don't go to football to drink. Maybe have one beer if I'm there early, but I've never understood those that are missing the football to drink. I don't even get the point of a pint at half time. By the time you get the drink you have to down it in 5-10 mins. May as well just go to the pub.

As long as the bricklayers and bagel place next to it are still open, I will only be buying one burrito, one flat white, a 10 donut Krispy Kreme pack and popcorn every other game.

Viva la revolucion!

Personally it's somewhere I would be avoiding. I particularly found the front rows at Wembley awful for watching matches as you are a bit of a way from the pitch and feel lower than the pitch. For the same price, 15 rows up the stand you get a far better perspective of the game, get to see a lot more of what happens and won't find yourself going to the big screen for replays to see what actually happened a lot!
When I say West lower I am looking from row 20 so a bit higher than pitchside.

Why the hate for people that miss 5 mins here and there? I enjoy having a drink or two at half time and chat with people I don't sit with, and that sometimes ends up with watching the first few mins of the second half inside the concourses. So what?

I hate mostly people that leave 10mins before the end

I really am curious. For argument's sake, let's say the club aren't talking out of their wiped-with-fifty-pound-notes bumholes and we really are getting an experience that is not comparable to seats at the old WHL.

Anyone want to try arguing exactly what this experience is (while trying really hard to not call BS on the club?)

The best I can think of is atmosphere shifts so that simply being part of the crowd is like being at a high profile Bundesliga or South American match as the design of the stadium is 'that good' (7.9m from touchlines, even if it was enforced by health and safety, is a bit far in my opinion so I'm already sceptical. 4.9 for the south is good though). So that every match is a rollercoaster of nerves and excitement beginning to end. Acoustic effects kicking in, close stands and steep angles of the stands all helping.

If they want us to pay MORE for the access to better bars and restaurants, then be default, that food and drink should be discounted or free, but instead it will be overpriced..... so we should be thankful merely for the access to overpriced facilities with nice tiling?

Access to the stadium may not be great and I'm a bit worried that I can't go by the new away section in the north east to get to the east stand, with me approaching from the north walking down from the north circ. If I have to walk all the way around the stadium, by the west, around the south then back up the east, I will be super annoyed.

Anyone got any other ideas what this 'experience' really entails?

Not hate, but I don’t like seeing lots of empty seats while the game’s on.

It ruins the atmosphere and since I believe a good atmosphere helps the players, I don’t like it.

Huh? Everyone in the top 40 k did definitely not say no to a season ticket.
When you look at the phases for the ST renewals this year, Phase 8 is people who got their ST last year while being between 44,000 and 66,050 on the waiting list - so it clearly went down to 66,050. About 22k was taken I believe which mean if you were 66,050 and said no you should be about 44,000 now (or maybe slightly lower if some didn't renew their bronze).

I keep getting told to go inside by the people around me as we always score when I'm inside, so that argument doesn't work with me. You should be grateful I'm taking one for the team!

Because you're the fucker jostling to get past me while I'm watching the game. And if something happens while you're passing you think you can stand in front of me until it’s over.

Without gettting into the whole economic argument, you can be sure that if it went the other way round and they shifted us into a crap, ramshackle uncomfortable shithole with dreadful facilities we’d be demanding a discount. Like it or not on a personal basis, there is value in the quality of a football stadium. The quality of the football is paramount, by a huge margin, but it has never been the only consideration.

If we were still allowed to have over 60,000 in the old WHL, mostly standing and many of them pissing down the terraces because they can’t get to the toilets, or if they do they certainly can’t get back in again, would it be fair to charge us all same prices as they did last year for a seat at WHL? No, because facilities and comfort matter, even to football fans.

I’m not trying to justify the prices, but to argue that the “experience” has no value is simply wrong, in my view.

Unless you manage to get an isle seat! Wembley was the perfect chance for me to get one after 11+ years of pissing off the people in my row at WHL! Although I was rarely late back, just tended to leave a few mins before HT to beat the rush.

Hoping for another isle seat at NWHL, win win for everyone involved :)
