West Ham maintain legal threat over high food and drink prices at London stadium amid fan backlash

Hammers fans were outraged over pints of beer costing as much as £7.60 during the club’s Premier League season opener against Manchester City earlier this month.

The club have held talks with stadium owner London Legacy Development Corporation and catering partner Delaware North in a bid to lower prices ahead of last night’s home game against Danish side Viborg in the play-offs of the Europa Conference League.

However, West Ham remain unhappy with prices, which in the case of some beers have been reduced by as little as 10p, although greater cuts have been made to the cost of food items such as pies and sausage rolls.

Hot drinks cost £3.65, while bottles of soft drinks are priced at £5.10 and chocolate bars and packets of crisps, £2.50.

The club want further cuts ahead of their next home game, against Brighton at the weekend, or are ready to take the matter to court, citing a clause in their contract with LLDC which aims to ensure prices are comparable to those in London similar. clubs, namely Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.
