    They claim "Season-ticket holders are being charged more than they paid for the same seat at Wembley last season"

    And argue fans should be being charged less, because last season was a one-off.... now fans are a bit p*ssed off, so they should get a slightly cheaper price than last year, to apologise

    In addition to making less money, the club should also spend more.

    IS that first line even true? As far as I can see, on the club site it says you can buy a CAT A ticket (the Chelsea game) for the same price as last season...they also have some weird thing with the Chelsea game, like it shouldn't be considered a CAT A game?

    The second line, I'm still trying to wrap my head around their view here. How much more exactly are they paying per game compared to last season? When considering the refunds they have been offered etc?

    They are folks around who like to hear there own voice and feel important, the trust leadership are full of folks like that.

    Waste of space.

    Hope the club has made a note of how many tickets we have gotten from Arsenal for cup ties at their not fit for purpose, brickhole of a stadium so we can respond in kind when the time comes.

    Some interesting tidbits from the Trust's meeting last week.

    Mostly predictably disappointing re: tranafer ambitions (none whatsoever), which I expected.

    However, the most interesting tidbits (to my mind, anyway) are that a) the Stadium will be made a London Living Wage area, which will also include the matchday stewards, b) Nike will not be the new sponsor, and c) the Women's team are likely going to be incorporated into the club proper.

    Re: the London living wage, if true, *good on Levy* and the club. It's what I wanted us to do for a long time - damn being an utterly cheapskate business, we have a social obligation to Tottenham and the people of Haringey more broadly. It's very, very pride-inducing to see that we're living up to that.

    Re: Nike, sigh. It's going to end up being a toilet seat maker or something, and that's going to suck.

    Finally, re: the women's team, absolutely good news - should have been done earlier, and tbh, I would have preferred that the second test event after the U18s was a Spurs Ladies game, instead of the Legends one we ended up going with. Still, this is a good move too.

    Have a look through it - interesting stuff.

    Have to add, for some years now we have been the community service providers in terms of youth activities and what not. I am told by friends who know that out commitment to these programs has been immense and virtually on our shoulders for a long time. I will read the notes, thanks for posting...

    Very worthy, but the attendance that they need for the test event would be much less likely to be hit with a ladies game compared to a legends game.

    I remember how proud I was years ago when Spurs chose to plough millions into the Tottenham Foundation and the long-term vision of good works within the local community.

    I think the important part is we will pay all employees (included contracted) will get living wage (this is an issue with Pool IIRC, direct staff are Living wage, but anyone contracted they never put in the contract that requirement), so well done Levy.

    I'm not sure re the transfers, the point of this 18 year journey is to make us able to compete, I just think the club is being quiet for now, I think there are a lot of forecast revenue streams, but we will need to actually see them before we can commit to x or y transfer budget.

    Fair point, mate. But I think, if it were marketed right, we'd get 45,000 for the ladies' game - after all, the stadium will be the star attraction, regardless of whether it's the U-18s, Legends or the Ladies. Hell, it will even outshine the first team for a while.

    But we announced the events late enough that intensive marketing wasn't really possible, so you're probably right.

    Be interesting to see what we do with the ladies games (think big UK clubs are missing the boat here)

    Barca and Juve just announced record attendance for ladies games in the last week (59 & 39K IIRC), hopefully we give the ladies a run out this season in the new stadium (especially with demand for main games, might get a little uplift)

    We're definitely lagging behind. And given that the USWNT's more popular than the men's team, we're also lagging in comparison to our presumed priority market.

    Eventually, I'd like the Ladies to play at the new stadium, same as our first team. It should become a regular thing, and we're in a great place to kickstart it, given our new infrastructure.

    We can take the lead on this - it's an opportunity, and it just makes sense.

    I'm not sure that we would've to be fair. Remember that 30 odd thousand people (me included) have already seen the stadium for the first test event at the weekend. If I look at the group of 5 that I was part of on Sunday. I am away anyway so miss it (and also miss the Palace game), 2 of the others aren't doing the legends match because 'they've now already seen the stadium and will just wait to the first game against Palace'. The other 2 are going to the Legends game to see the legends, I asked both whether they would've gone if it were a ladies match instead and both said that they wouldn't have bothered.

    I think Spurs making the second match a ladies match would've put us seriously at risk of not getting enough people through the door. It was too big a gamble to make IMO and not worth us taking that gamble. That being said, while I don't think making the second (larger) event a ladies match would've been a good idea, I do think it would've been good for Spurs to have made that first 25,000 capacity requirement game a ladies match instead of the under19s match. I think for the very first event the match being played was of a lot lesser importance than simply being there for the first ever match at the stadium (and the amount of people on the concourses during the game, especially during the second half, made this clear).
