Hartlepool Anger at Ticket Prices

Hartlepool United supporters have reacted angrily to the ticket price set for this weekends League One fixture at Elland Road.

Pool fans may have to pay up to a staggering 30 to watch the game, compared to the 20 that Hartlepool usually charge visitors to their Victoria Park stadium. That said, regardless of how the tickets are priced it appears that the whiners do seem prepared to pay it anyway (ensuring their complaint is lodged along the way) as the Hartlepool United official website is advising supporters to book early!

Baffling argument, they aren’t happy yet will be snapping up the tickets? That said, this is a town that elected the clubs MASCOT, a monkey named ‘H'Angus’ as mayor.

I must admit for Division three football 30 is a bit steep!
30 is expensive but we understand that this is your cup final
You always have to pay for the best things in life..Visiting Elland Road is one of them...
agree kazza
It's Pretty Simple. Hartlepool are relativley Local and as such are expected to bring a lot of support which means higher costs to Leeds from stewarding and plod, also it seems there has been troble with Hartlepool fans away from home and therefore Plod costs increase further. Quit yer moaning. Leeds are Cat A at EVERY away game and as such we pay a dam sight more for our away games than Hartlepool do.
Wow...someone with sense! :D
Mockba...since when was there trouble when Hartlepool were away? We were praised by the police for our behavior last season...
Maybe leeds WAS a big name once upon a yester year but that doesnt mean you still are!! Having an attitude that that will make you dull and very obnoxious indeed. I mean for another 5 you can go and see a Premiership match - Leeds you must remember YOU ARE HAS BEENS!! You cant keep living on past tenses - WAKE UP!!!!
30 a ticket in league 1 your club has gone crazy I know you need money but thats not the way to do it. Nobody is going to pay 30 to watch a league 1 team I think Batesy needs to remember where you are.
you need to remember who your playing
Yeah I do geezer Blackburn next weekend a game I worth paying 30 for.
lol this post is the exact reason why i hate leeds, the fans, u are so arrogant, "you need to remeber who you are playing" "you have to pay for the finer things in life" Sheffield wednesday were once in that league, we didnt go around saying were a big name n chargin pathetic prices for fans, n then justified that by being arrogant we got on with it, realised we were not as big as we once were, realised that we were closer to the bottom tear of english football than the top and we got promotion come on the pool They should jus do wot i did last year, get in for free by sum scruffy chavvy burger lad openin the back door n lettin us in after we told him ed give him a fiver each, give him ***** all then sit in the leeds kop watch wednesday destroy leeds :) WE ALL HATE LEEDS SCUM, WE ALL HATE LEEDS SCUM
you'd never catch us charging high prices :-)
