Report: Tottenham Hotspur losing the most in ticket revenue of any Premier League club
By Eddie Razo -

Home fixtures aren’t treating Tottenham Hotspur well as the Daily Mail relayed a report from bookmaker OLBG.com that the north London club is losing more than £165,000 in revenue per home match, which is the highest in the Premier League.

The reason for these financial losses is due to unsold match tickets, research has found. The English media outlet relayed a study studying average attendances this season, showing that Tottenham has 5,000 more empty seats than any club. 

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which cost £1-billion to build, is considered the best in the Premier League with numerous notable selling points. 

According to the report, the failure to sell out home matches is partly due to an unwillingness by some to attend fixtures during the Covid-19 pandemic. Second on the list is Chelsea, who are losing under £155,000 per game at Stamford Bridge. 

Here’s the entire list of most unsold Premier League tickets:

1. Tottenham – £ 165,680

2. Chelsea – £154,254

3. Southampton – £108,416

4. Burnley – £101,790

5. Manchester City – £86,275

6. Crystal Palace – £66,272

7. Watford – £60,156

8. Leeds United – £40,100

9. West Ham United – £39,950

10. Newcastle United – £38,853

11. Wolves – £37,110

12. Manchester United – £35,402

13. Brighton – £30,060

14. Arsenal – £27,326

15. Aston Villa – £21,996

16. Everton – £16,320

17. Liverpool – £13,949

18. Brentford – £13,650

19. Norwich City – £9,390

20. Leicester City – £6,526

Why send players on loan when they have no future at the club, Clarke, Gil, Ndombele and Dele should be sold, undoubtedly at a loss but it’s revenue gained and off the wage bill. A loan just prolongs the waste of money this club continues to seep, no wonder we can’t buy.

It’s a pity Wimbledon don’t still have the crazy gang mentality and their initiations going on. We could send Clarke and Gil there for a bit of bullying. Vinny could have shaved Gil’s head and his bumfluff tash and Fash could lock Clarke in a cupboard and de-bag him every now and then.

They wouldn’t fanny around like Dele and Belly when they came back after something like that.

Who wants to buy players who are severely underperforming? You’d have to be stupid. A loan allows a player’s value to increase if they improve and at the very least, being on loan gets the player out of the club.

A lot of teams are struggling financially now with high fixed costs and lower variable revenues so borrowing players is their only option.

Levy will most likely look at this and think it’s still cheaper than buying a half-decent player at 35 million.

To start, “losing revenue” is a lot different than not realizing revenue. I would like to see a table of actual realized revenue per game where I’m sure that even at less than full capacity in a 61k arena and considering the highest average ticket prices in the prem, Spurs must be close to the top. But whatever narrative gets ENIC/Levy out I’ll go with.

Listen, I want to see the back of Levy as much as anyone here but the reality is these guys are going nowhere even with a half-filled stadium as they have more than enough debt service coverage to withstand impaired cash flow and can always sell non-performing assets like Tanguy to raise capital or even real assets like Harry if need be.

Enough customers at the circus will still attend even if there’s no animals just for the “experience” so the end product just has to seem real enough for them. That’s today’s world. Very few people in any profession have any idea what they’re doing, they just know how to do what they think is the minimum necessary to get by. And when they fail the banks just print more money and give it to them.

I have read through some of the comments on here regarding this issue and I have to say you should be encouraged by this in respect of pressure coming down on ENIC.

People not turning up will hurt ENIC, even if the seats are paid for, because the punters are not spending money in the stadium. This is also an indication that some of the current season ticket holders have already decided that they will not renew their tickets in the summer. This may have as much to do with the typical type of season ticket holders THFC currently have as to do with the downturn in fortunes on the pitch.

Levy and ENIC have rinsed many die hard Spurs supporters over the last 20 years. I stopped attending at WHL in 2008 and when I visited the new stadium for a pre season game in 2019 I didn’t recognise the company I was in. Spurs crowd now is not what it was 20 years ago. I put up with a decade of Sugar and 7 years of Levy and his waiting list before I plucked up the courage to find something else to do with my disposable income and time.

I’m not sure Levy’s present army of Johney come latelys are equipped to deal with several seasons of mediocrity. My guess is that if they are opting to not attend matches and finding it difficult to pass on their tickets then many of them will put the money they save towards their gas bill, an electric car or a holiday in Klaus Schwab’s brave new world.

The man with the waiting list, who used to increase prices, may find himself with a half empty stadium and having to reduce ticket prices if he wants to attract the people he has alienated for two decades back to the ‘magical kingdom’ he has created.

It’s a beautiful thing to be honest.

As reported last year:

Top-flight English soccer side Tottenham Hotspur have refinanced more than UK£600 million (US$752 million) of loans taken out to support the construction of their new 62,000-seater stadium.
The Premier League club, who moved into their UK£1.2 billion home in April, originally had until 2022 to pay back the UK£637 million (US$798.5 million) they borrowed from Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and HSBC.
However, Spurs will now be able to stagger the payments having completed a private placement in the US, converting roughly UK£525 million (US$657.6 million) of that debt into bonds with an average maturity period of 23 years and an interest rate of 2.66 per cent.
It had been reported that Spurs were hoping to refinance UK£400 million of debt, but the club said their initial attempt to refinance ‘realised extensive support and oversubscription’.
Spurs added in an official statement that the refinancing of their stadium loans has ‘successfully repositioned the club’s balance sheet’ and secured ‘financial flexibility for years to come’.

Very true. It’s a bit hypocritical slagging off enic and Levy at every opportunity and then at the same time handing them over cash on a regular basis. By being a scarf waving sheep you’re basically saying to enic that everything is rosy in the garden and you are happy to support them.
The ONLY way that Levy and enic will sit up and take notice, and perhaps change, is if they’re hit in the pockets where it hurts.
There’s a channel on youtube where the presenters talk the talk re. Levy and enic, but they still go to every game and buy the merch. It’s not rocket science to see what they are doing is keeping enic wallowing in money.
Here’s and idea folks, instead of making donations to enic whilst, like me, you badmouth them on here, give that money to charity instead and watch Spurs on streams.

The thing is the supporters support Tottenham. I think it is possible to support the team but resent the owners for the manner in which they conduct the club’s business. The majority of supporters only care about what happens on the pitch. The club politics becomes relevant when your love for the club becomes tainted by perceived failure.

I don’t ever remember there being any resentment of the board at Spurs before Terry Venables took over as the team manager. Since then Irving Scholar, Alan Sugar and Daniel Levy have all been villains in the eyes of some supporters at different times.

3 cup wins since 1984 tells it’s own story. For a while now I have regarded Spurs as being about as big as Aston Villa and Everton. All big clubs with history and support but a feeling that their best days are behind them. In terms of trophy wins Spurs are just no longer in the same bracket as AFC, Chelsea, United, City and Liverpool.

It’s hard to swallow and i’m sure someone will be along to scold me for these remarks, regarding AFC in particular, but it has to be said that without an owner who is prepared to invest on a scale comparable with Chelsea, City and now Newcastle the game is up for Spurs, ENIC and Levy.

Spurs can only ever pretend to compete with these clubs under the current owners and their business model. It’s only going one way. The supporters want Levy and ENIC to do something they have never done. The supporters are on a collision course with Levy.

I’m afraid that the only way enic will ever sit up and take notice is if their financial takings drop considerably. Otherwise things will never change. By “supporting” the club you are in effect ensuring the current status quo never changes. Simple as that. Hurt them in the pocket or don’t hurt them at all.
I’m a Spurs fan whether I go to matches or not. Millions are. I don’t see why they should be regarded any differently. I go to football here in London, but I don’t reward enic because I am a massive critic of them and supporting them financially then paying them money doesn’t sit well with me as that would be hypocrisy in my book.
Incidentally the comment by Mark below that I “have made disparaging remarks about fans who go to matches” before is not true. I remember now, I said people who are unvaccinated are plonkers. I think that is what he is referring to and why he got so aeriated. He said he was unvaccinated. I stand by that comment too, some people are too sensitive.

How many season tickets are sold? An empty seat doesn’t mean it hasn’t been paid for.

Do Spurs hold back a number of seats to sell to visitors and tourists.

Man United always claim to sell out home games but on TV you can see the empty seats. Is that the same for other clubs?

Maybe Covid. I think a lot ST holders are now picking and choosing games. Also, it’s a pain to set up and pass on tickets to friends and family (those who aren’t set-up on the ticket system already). In the end, you shruck your shoulders and say I can’t be bothered and the ticket goes to waste. Also, fans are increasingly fed up with the whole situation of promising jam tomorrow and being taken for mugs. It works both ways and I think we are seeing the effects of that too.

Not saying it is all down to covid. But I guess a lot of people, after not being able to attend matches because of previous covid restrictions, have realised that they don’t have to regularly attend every match, especially as we’re paying premium prices and taken for a ride. I won’t buy anything in the ground or shop anymore. I think a lot of us legacy fans are nearing our sell by date. I can’t even give tickets away some matches.

I can confirm that I am regularly offered tickets to attend games at WHL by several of the people I got to know when I attended as a season ticket holder in the 90’s and noughties. It was every now and then when Poch first got sacked. It’s every home game now. Not from the same person each time but if I wanted to I could have attended every game this season with the offers I have had. I haven’t been tempted to attend once.

When I used to attend it was the thought of giving up that kept me coming. Once you cross that line you find something else to do. Every home game was a 200 mile round trip for me. At first I missed the people I had met and attending the games. After a while I didn’t miss the travelling and my holidays were better. The support is collapsing. Levy will be looking for a way out soon.

To dare is too dear.

Boom. The nail, right there. I’ve got 2 ST and have been a holder since the 80s. Quite frankly I’ve earned the right to F**#k this lot off. I pick what games I want to go to now. If I can’t sell it, it goes as an empty seat. I’m done with watching Spurs religiously at the Lane. Watching mediocrity in a sterile stadium against teams like Chelsea blowing us away and taking the pisch!. If I do go, sorry have to go, I make sure I don’t spend one single penny in their food and drink outlets though. I’m amazed how many do though.

The calculation is based on average cost of ticket x (full capacity-average attendance) in a season where covid is the main factor is hardly an earth shattering result. And this financial ‘loss’ is purely notional.

With Conte on board the pressure is to rebuild the team. Not all gonna happen this season.

Where to start? If you could draw a line with Covid at one end and unconvincing team performances at the other end then perhaps it’s not surprising that supporters are staying away, for both reasons. But in addition, I would argue more importantly, there is an underlying malaise at the club which has been gathering momentum for many months and it’s this-a catalogue of poor player investment, frankly mind boggling decision making around sacking Poch and even Jose a week before a cup final, 70+ days to appoint Nuno who was doomed from the beginning and now this long drawn out saga to sign Traore which is of course symbolic of virtually every Levy deal regarding players. On top of that performances by our very average team have flatlined somewhere in the region of mid-table standard. Would I be surprised to see several outgoings and then an oopps-we ran out of time for incomings-No I would not. Why? because Levy is focussed only on profit and balancing the books. The more people realise this ugly fact the less seats will be filled at the theatre of god knows what.

Interesting to know how many empty seats due to covid fears and how many because fans finally realised Danny Boy’s taking the mick.
If its cos of covid then I guess numbers will gradually increase again, but if its the latter then hopefully more fans will stop attending

It could be that if you say that, for example, 10% of the fanbase that would sell out our grounds gives it a miss because of COVID, 10% of our capacity is significantly greater than 10% of Chelsea’s or Soton’s. Equally, given that our tickets are relatively expensive compared with, for example, Manure’s, if both sides drop 5000 supporters due to COVID, the loss is greater for us. Also, clubs that have a significant number of tourist supporters are going to be hit harder than clubs like Villa and Soton, who probably attract a very small number of tourists.

It’s not as simple as that. Many Spurs fans are disillusioned with the lack of ambition and investment shown by the owners. That’s the real reason I think. Fans vote with their feet.
Omnicron is widely regarded as little more than a common cold. Unless it’s solely Spurs fans that are unvaccinated I see no reason to blame covid for our attendances having the biggest drop. The elephant in the room is enic.

I didn’t say it was as simple as that. I’m sure disillusionment comes into it. I’ve been a supporter since the backend of the 1960s and been going to games since the mid-1970s. I’ve been a season ticket holder for well over 20 years now; primarily because I got sick of the hassle factor of having to book tickets ahead for each game. So I am one of the dumb Levy-loving sheep that does not have your great mental capacity and so can’t see through Levy.

The last game I went to was the Norwich game. I missed the Liverpool game because I had symptoms of the common cold, testing positive for COVID later in the week and have not felt inclined to travel to the ground since. I gave the games not covered by my ST a miss because I am a little fed up with what has been served up this season/having to catch up on work I didn’t do the week before Christmas and partly because I don’t want to risk bringing the virus back and infecting my missus, who luckily seems to have escaped it. However, if you give it a little thought, you might appreciate that the factors I have set out may in part explain why we have been harder hit than at least some of the other clubs. And as someone else has pointed out, if it’s as simple as mere disillusionment, why are Chelsea and Citeh up near the top of the list.

There is no need to get personal.
For starters I never used the word “dumb”. That’s your interpretation not mine. I was solely referring to the people that, despite everything, still support Levy and enic.
Logically our downturn in ticket sales is due to far more than covid now we’re virtually out of the pandemic. You don’t need much mental capacity to come to that conclusion. Small, packed and cramped grounds are going to see the most likely spread of covid I’d of thought, even if it were the real reason.
I live in Central London, people on the whole are not frightened of Omnicron. Face the facts Levy and enic are the real problem here, hence the protests.
Why try to shift the blame to covid?

As to getting personal, you’re the one that keeps making disparaging remarks about people that go to games (not just in this thread) and I love the way you get all literal and latch onto the fact you did not use the word ‘dumb’, which apparently is somehow distinguished from ‘scarf wearing sheep’.

I am not trying to shift the blame to COVID. You, on the other hand, seem unwilling to accept that COVID is likely to be a significant factor. As shown below, attendances for league games were holding up pretty well until the warnings about Omicron came just before Christmas . You can see a significant drop just after the Norwich game and a pick up for the Chelsea game as the threat from Omicron appears to have been discounted/receded.

Tottenham 1-0 Manchester City – 58,262
Tottenham 3-0 Pacos de Ferreira – 30,215
Tottenham 1-0 Watford – 57,672
Tottenham 0-3 Chelsea – 60,059
Tottenham 5-1 NS Mura – 25,121
Tottenham 2-1 Aston Villa – 53,076
Tottenham 0-3 Manchester United – 60,356
Tottenham 3-2 Vitesse – 36,312
Tottenham 2-1 Leeds – 58,989
Tottenham 2-0 Brentford – 54,202
Tottenham 3-0 Norwich – 57,088
Tottenham 2-2 Liverpool – 45,421
Tottenham 2-1 West Ham – 40,031
Tottenham 3-0 Crystal Palace – 40,539
Tottenham 3-1 Morecambe – 40,310
Tottenham 0-1 Chelsea – 45,603

As for small cramped grounds v our spacious grounds, I doubt there is a significant impact. We still have to queue up with a significant number of others and then climb through some compact areas in order to reach our seats. Additionally, a significant number of our fans use public transport to get to games. I suspect this is less an issue for supporters of clubs like, for example, Soton and Norwich.

I am sure disillusionment is playing a part, but it’s difficult to see why this would suddenly come to the fore after consecutive wins against Leeds, Brentford and Norwich and with Antonio Conte fairly newly appointed.

Baa.

The answer is that I used to wear a scarf that I acquired around 1981, until I managed to lose it sometime in 2015. I can’t remember what it was made of, but it was very faded. Somewhere, I have a Tottenham Rose of England tee shirt I bought from the back of a van parked on the High Road, but am now a little too well built to get into it! I haven’t bought anything from the club shop in the last 40 years and never buy food or drink at the ground. I can just about stomach paying for my ST, although, I have been struggling to justify it of late, but will not be otherwise contributing to the club’s coffers.

Old school. I salute you sir. I did the food and drink boycott during my 7 year parole period under ENIC. I’m a trade unionist at heart and feel the urge to fight back whenever I can.

I read your comments regarding what made you buy a season ticket in the first place. I did the same thing. I counted up all the over priced ticket stubs I had paid for during a mid nineties season and realised I had paid more for the ten games I had attended at home than I would have if I had bought a season ticket.

I was then trapped until 2008.

Just watch Spurs on streams and stop giving enic your hard earned cash to reward them until they change. Give it to charity instead, I’m sure as a trade unionist you understand the principal behind that.
I think Mark is a bit touchy because I recall I called people who are unvaccinated “plonkers” on a previous blog. He admitted to being unvaccinated. So he is not attending games because he is scared of catching something which he is more likely to be spreading. Rank hypocrisy. Nor did I criticise people who go to games.
Oh and don’t be a dyed in the wool fan.

Hello squire.

Thanks for the reply. I intervened here because we are all Spurs supporters. That is why we are here on this platform. We love the club. As a nation we have just been through one of the most divisive periods I can remember in my own personal history.

People are generally angry for all sorts of reasons and that anger often overlaps into other areas of people’s lives.

we have basically been gaslighted and divided by the media, government and by other systems of control for two years. I am a trade unionist so i recognise divide and rule tactics.

I feel strongly that people need to put all their differences behind them now and at least try to be a bit more friendly. Spurs is important but it isn’t as important as not being able to pay your bills.

Mark sounds like a decent sort of fella and your experience of supporting Spurs sounds very similar to the journey many of us have been on. We have all got to where we are with ENIC in our own time at our own pace.

I’m unvaccinated by the way. I also do not give ENIC a penny. Not since 2008. You are right about how they run the club. That is why the supporters should stick together.

Charity begins at home.

“Make disparaging remarks about people that go to games”? Where did you read that? There you go again making sweeping statements because I dared to say that covid is just an excuse for this table and people that financially reward enic on a regular basis are sheep.
I will say that fans that regularly go to games and then come on here to slag off Levy and enic, whilst at the same time regularly donating money to them, might not be in the best position to complain. The only way enic will sit up and listen is if they’re financial takings go down significantly. Give it to charity instead like I do and watch Spurs on a stream.
Obviously the disillusionment with Levy and enic’s lack of investment and ambition has a lot to do with this table. It’s not rocket science. I think you’re confusing Omnicron with the Delta variant. It’s a common cold if you’ve had the vaccines, if you haven’t then…
I don’t need to look at every gate attendance to emphasise the logic of obvious discontent amongst fans with enic, Did you not see the recent protests or read the generic opinions on here for goodness knows how many years?
I stand by the fact that if after all the evidence of serial neglect and profiteering, you continue to financially support Levy and enic, and in so doing reward them for the lies and exploitation to the supporters, then you Sir are indeed a scarf waving sheep.
Have a nice day.

Oh are you the plonker that is unvaccinated that bit back at me on another post? Would make sense as to why you’re so touchy…
Hardly the same as criticising people that go to matches..

This is going to be my last reply to you.

  1. Your posts are littered with disparaging remarks about those that to games and it’s not just me that has picked you up on it.
  2. At no stage have I claimed that everything at Spurs is rosy or that COVID or that there is significant disillusionment amongst Spurs fans.
  3. And to repeat myself, I’ve never claimed to be unvaccinated.

You like making lists don’t you? One other person has picked me up on it and he and I have never got on. His views are at odds with just about everyone on this blog (and I’ve been around for a long time) as he complains about our lack of “morale” amongst other things.
I’m not going to apologise for speaking my mind and commonsense. If you go to matches then you are financially supporting enic what’s the point of hoping you’ll ever get rid of them?
Yes, those people are scarf waving sheep feeding the parasite. I’m entitled to that view.
Please link me to these terrible crimes I’m supposed to have committed in this blog. For your information H always weedles out anything that is unworthy or below the belt. Who do you think you are exactly? Self righteous would be a good description.
Truth is you are over sensitive and seem to have a grudge against me because I have opinions that differ from yours. Including the only solution that is ever realistically going to grab enic’s attention.
I take nothing back I’ve ever said and will continue to speak my mind on this free speech blog. If you don’t like it tough.

Weird. You’d think people would be lining up to see the world’s best manager doing his magic in the world’s best stadium. We’ve got fantastic training facilities and everything.

So how come those evil Chelsea goons beat us four times this season without ever getting out of first gear? The mind boggles at the injustice.*

I suggest we play the block of flats up front and the cinema in front of our goal.

About his level. Never mind he only cost £10m. Approx the amount that would have covered Dybala’s image rights…

Very interesting. It seems the penny is finally dropping with the scarf waving sheep that they are being screwed by Levy and enic.

You are talking about the true fans and supporters.. “Scarf wearing sheep’ is an astonishing definition of our fans who are the heart of the club….. It’s not interesting or surprising really the losses results are mixed… The European Champions Chavski have the second most losses.. Does this interest you too? City are also up there. Big stadiums are obviously going to make the most losses.

The fans who support Levy and enic by constantly giving them their hard earned money for the most expensive matchday tickets and shirts in the country, whilst getting the most stingy and cheapest possible transfer business in return, and think nothing is wrong, without complaining are scarf waving sheep, they are the reason Levy and enic are able to continue their con and get fat on our misery.
I’m not interested in the opinions of somebody who thinks we should buy loads of kids instead of established players, or that Pochettino was to blame for our woes during the end of his tenure and obviously has an axe to grind with him for some reason, or is deluded enough to predict a scoreline of Chelsea 1 Spurs 2 last Sunday.
If you think covid alone is the reason our attendances are plummeting then you are in denial. Yes of course covid is a factor, but have you forgotten the protests after the loss to Man U? You can’t deny there is massive unrest against Levy and enic. People I know have cancelled their season tickets because of the way the club is being run – the lack of investment and ambition.

My 4 tickets were canceled for exactly the reason you stated, GCTM. Having been taken to Spurs from the early 70s by my dad, it was a gut-wrenching decision but tethered by the facts that Enic are unfit custodians for the club and interested only in their property empire which they have leveraged the club to buy. The fools that continue to see the false dawn that Levy hints at but never delivers are worthy of contempt at this point and are the reason Levy continues to live large off the decaying carcass of the once-great football operation. The latest low-ball offer for a winger we don’t need and have made no meaningful attempt to actually buy, it yet further evidence of Levy treating the fans like idiots. He’s a can’t. Williams seems to enjoy taking the contrarian view as he thinks he knows far more than anyone else which is also tiresome.

Obviously your comments have no consideration for those fans who travel hundreds of miles and some even thousands just to support the team, win lose or draw, home and away when possible.
Some of whom I know personally, and they are as loyal to the club as you can get, and all fans who have this club at heart are all equal, not just the more fortunate one’s who pop along on the tube for 10mins.

I don’t think he means anything by it. He just thinks Levy and ENIC are pulling the wool over your eyes. He makes supporters like you the scapegoat for his frustration. Spurs are like lambs to the slaughter at the moment. We are often penned in at the back and rely on Hojbjerg to shepherd the midfield all by himself. Levy is fleecing all of us.

I did that for 40 years ..and if you think coming from North London and supporting Spurs is strange that’s strange ..going to away games from London is alot of travelling. I love hearing the Spurs fans in good voice ..not backing peak Poch ,living about the stadium opening date , binning off Jose 6 days off a final, free flat beer mouldy pies of it just bollix..that was enough .
There was a time when a decent group of players could undermine a grubby board just by playing well…not anymore..not until the fans cross the pitch and get under the directors box…these are the sad facts of the financial rule that has been imposed on the club.
