According to a report by the British news agency PA, English Premier League club West Ham United want to work towards lowering the price of beer and other food at home games.
The London first division football team is reacting to the outraged reactions of its fans to the current prices.
West Ham fans had complained after paying £7.30 for a beer at last Sunday’s first home game of the season. At local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, a pint only costs around £5.20 (around €6.10)
According to a report in the tabloid “Daily Mail”, West Ham had at times even considered legal action against the owner of the London Stadium, which was built for the 2012 Olympic Games and is now home to the traditional club from East London. According to the PA, however, this does not appear to be necessary. There are already talks and the prices would be reduced, it said.
