PINT PRICE ROW: West Ham’s £7.30 pint caused outrage as the most expensive in the league… and it’s Man United’s £3 beer that is the cheapest of all! Here’s how much a pint costs at EVERY Premier League ground
- West Ham have the most expensive pints of every team in the the top flight
- The cheapest beer on offer at the London Stadium costs a whopping £7.30
- Meanwhile, Manchester United provide the cheapest at just £3.00 a pint
- Several Premier League clubs have committed to a price freeze on alcohol
West Ham fans may have had a lot to cheer about with their seventh-placed Premier League finish last season, but the price of beer and food at the London Stadium heading into the new campaign isn’t likely to bring a smile to many fans’ faces.
At a startling £7.60 for their most expensive a pint of larger, the Hammers have the highest priced drink in the Premier League. Even the cheapest-priced larger at the East London club will set punters back £7.30.
To add insult to injury, the club also tops the league table when it comes to expensive food, with the cheapest pie available costing an eye-watering £6, again higher than any other club in the top flight.
At the London Stadium, West Ham have the most expensive drinks in the Premier League
Manchester United’s Old Trafford is home to the cheapest pints in the top flight at just £3
Head to Old Trafford for a cheap pint (and some angry supporters) – but a beer at West Ham will set you back £7.30
Prices of food and drink at West Ham are not set by the club themselves but instead by external company Delaware North at the London Stadium.
Not all London-based clubs have quite such expensive food and drink prices however, with Crystal Palace charging a comparatively inexpensive £9.50 for a pie and a pint at Selhurst Park.
By comparison, Manchester United offer the cheapest larger prices in the Premier League, with a pint at Old Trafford setting fans back just £3.
Amidst the rising cost of living, a number of clubs have committed to a freeze in prices for consumables, with Man United, Bournemouth, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Wolves all maintaining their prices from the 2021-22 season.
Meanwhile, newly-minted Newcastle have actually reduced their pricing, with the cost of a pint now down to £4.80 at St James’ Park.
West Ham are threatening to sue the owners of the London Stadium over current beer prices
Sportsmail revealed on Thursday that the issue has come to a head in east London with West Ham threatening to sue the owners of the London Stadium if there is no cut in beer prices before the next home game.
They are willing to go to court to force a price change, citing the Comparable Clubs clause in their catering agreement with the London Stadium.
West Ham have raised the issue with caterers Delaware North who insist they cannot make reductions without London Stadium permission.
West Ham expect the change to be made in time for the visit of Viborg in the UEFA Conference League on August 18 – and have threatened legal action if their contract is not honoured.
