London Stadium beer prices could rise again

All eyes will be on the prices and beer and food at the London Stadium with the first West Ham home game of the season against Chelsea next month.

West Ham will be carefully monitoring London Stadium 185 and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) price strategy to make sure its complies with the comparable clubs clause.

The 2013 concessionaire agreement clause says the price of food and drink can be no more than the mean average of Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs prices.  Last season the mean average of the cheapest beer across those clubs was £5.75 per pint for the cheapest pint.

After the outcry from the first home game last season when Amstel was priced at £6.80 prices dropped slightly with Amstel reduced to £6.60 and the introduction of Fosters at £6.30 per pint.

London Stadium were claiming that there is a clause in Delaware North’s contract and the issue is down to the caterer but West Ham’s say their contract is with LLDC and not Delaware North.

LLDC subcontract catering to operators London Stadium 185 who owned by them who in turn contracted Delaware North in a 25 year catering contract for the stadium.

West Ham could still sue London Legacy Development Corporation with LLDC making a legal claim against Delaware North unless a compromise can be reached.

At the baseball over the summer, London Stadium were charging £7.35 for a pint of Amstel.
