Football fans blasted West Ham for ’embarrassing’ and ‘disgusting’ prices for a pint of beer
The club charged £7.60 for a Moretti or Heineken and a steep £4.50 for a bottle of Coca-Cola
And supporters quickly took to Twitter to criticise the club’s prices amid a cost-of-living crisis
A Twitter account posted the menu with the caption: ‘If you’re off to West Ham this season, you’ll need to remortgage your house for a few pints…’ followed by a cry-laughing emoji.
One fan said: ‘That tastes like bankruptcy,’ with another simply adding: ‘Wtf – embarrassing @WestHam.’
A third continued: ‘Absolutely dreadful club.’
The club’s actions were called ‘ripping off their own fans’ and beer as ‘tasting like bankruptcy’
A fan account fumed: ‘Ripping off their own fans during a cost of living crisis. Stay classy West Ham.’
Another posted: ‘The only retaliation is to not buy a thing. Cornet wasn’t worth it if the fans have to pay his wages weekly. Disgusting.’
Meanwhile, a fifth tweeted: ‘£4.50 for a bottle of coke!!! S*** the bed! That’s absolutely scandalous! They’re probably buying them in at less than a £1 a bottle.’
A Twitter picture showed a burger and chips at the Emirates costing a whopping £18.05

Some posted links to videos, with footage of Neil Warnock during his days as a manager shouting ‘What’s the difference? We’re in London, that’s the f***ing difference.’
Another added a video of TV presenter Karl Pilkington saying: ‘F*** off… seriously? Two and a half grand?’ with the caption: ‘4 Heinekens 3 ciders and a packet of crisps at the London Stadium.’
There was similar uproar last year after pictures emerged of a burger and chips at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium setting customers back an extortionate £18.05.
