Norwich City have confirmed ticket prices for their Capital One Cup fourth round tie with Tottenham Hotspur at Carrow Road on Wednesday, October 31.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

A seat for the game set to take place on Halloween night (7.45pm) will cost £30 for adults, £20 for those over-65, £15 for under-16s and £5 for those under-12.

However, that news has been met by grumbles from some Canaries fans on Twitter who feel the prices are too high.

They say it may mean Carrow Road is not a sell out for City’s first outing in the last 16 of the League Cup since 1995-96.

So what do you think – have Norwich City got their prices right for Spurs? Or does it come with the territory as far as football is concerned in this country?

Some Twitter reaction

Donald Parish (@canary_don): #NCFC have got this wrong. Understand commercial need but £30 is hard on loyal fans. Our best chance is with a full house.

Rosso (@rosswelsh21): If you ask me £30 is a joke! For league cup game yet again the club like to take us for all we have!

Jamie Allison (@jallison31): Lower prices mean newer fans might go, thus making money through merchandising and encouraging them to go to more games.

Phil Harris (kingswell): Game screams £25 to me. Looks & feels right. Extra fiver just seems grasping & may put people off on principle. #ncfc

  • If people are that upset by the price, the answer is simple, DON'T GO.

  • First reaction - gobsmacked. Second reaction - won't go at that price. Might have done at £20...

  • This is hard to believe! Should have kept League Cup prices at a low level to attract crowds, help those fans who can't normally get a ticket to home games and because teams don't play all of their first choice players. Having sat through the Scunthorpe and Doncaster games, we'll take the £60 saving this time round.

  • Having short changed the supporters in terms of the sides put out and the effort displayed in League Cup competitions over the past few years one would have thought the club might have "given something back". Sadly, McNally and the Board see the club simply as a limited company that needs to make a profit to pay off the banks.

  • Highborrans.... Really do you really think that us loyal fans should not moan about the price? Why then don't Ncfc just charge £50 for all cup games. Still loyal now? I am off to chelsea on saturday at a cost of £47 expensive but i'm an away fan so paying more is expected and i'm going to see Chelsea on their own patch great players great stadium

  • I had hoped NCFC would have at least kept the kids for a quid scheme for the Spurs match but I guess we will have to end up with Spurs fans in home seats paying the full £30 instead.

  • Following the no-show against Liverpool, and the dire performance against Doncaster (the only enjoyable bit about that night was playing a 'live' game of 'Where's Wally' amongst the Donny supporters), many supporters will consider it money well spent to attend the Spurs game. If we were playing well and had maybe won a game or two, many supporters would dig deep to attend the cup game. As it is I can't see more than 10-12,000 turning up. Beat Chelsea, and Arsenal and it could be different, but somehow I can't see it happening...

  • Agree £20 would have been right - twice the fee for the Doncaster game which I went to. At £30 I won't go to this one. Hope it's on TV.

  • Total Disgrace, for the last two games a family of Four have had to pay just £30, for this game that cost would be £90. At £30 a ticket there will be less than 10,000 and 10,000 @ £30 = £300,000 if the price was £20 then i would expect a crowd of 20,000 therefore £400,000. and lets face it, it will be a Spurs Reserve team anyways. Totally missed opportunity by the club.

  • Shocking, fed up of the club taking us for granted. Went to Scunny and Donny games in first two rounds but not a chance I'll be going to the Spurs game for £30. Norwich City do not care a jot about its supporters and quite frankly I'm getting sick of it. They could have filled Carrow Road for £15 per person and there would have been a great atmosphere for what should be a good match. Now it will be half-full with sheep who will still pay £4 for their half-time hot dog and leave 10 minutes early to beat the traffic.

  • This would cost us £60 to take the whole family its an absolute scam , shame on you Norwich and you advertise to be a family orientated club. We went to the Doncaster game and could not believe the amount of empty seats when the seating plan showed all full? Maybe this game people may decide to boycott and the spurs fans can sing aloud to their hearts content.

  • What a disgrace, I was totally shocked and ashamed when I realised how much our club is charging loyal supporters to watch a cup game, Our best chance to win was to fill the stadium to capacity. I think they will look back on this ridiculous decision and regret it.

  • I assume a lot of those complaining are season ticket holders who get to see Premiership matches for less than that. Maybe you now know how the rest of us feel, who live miles away and can't justify a season ticket and now feel frozen out of seeing any games, by the rip-off prices for so-called "casual" supporters - in my case having gone every season since 1971-2, to hundreds of games, but can't see how I can justify the price of going to any this year.

  • I would love to know what planet Mr. McNally is currently orbiting? You cannot justify £30 for a midweek league cup tie. The correct attitude Mr. McNally is to reward and encourage the club's fans. We've had a bad start, the fans are a bit concerned, why not keep prices sensible, pack the ground out for a great atmosphere a try and progress to the next round and breathe some confidence into the players and fans. But no, let's come out with some stereotypical drivel, treat the fans like they're stupid and bleed them dry.... GREED GREED GREED.... Ruining football.

  • I have always thought that it would be better to fill the stadium by selling lower price tickets but the club seems to prefer having it half empty and charging a higher price. Given the impact that the crowd can have on the players and our current form, I am even more surprised they have gone for these prices. A missed opportunity to make it Fortress Carrow Road. People are watching their spending these days and this is counterproductive if they wish to build goodwill and foster a positive relationship with supporters. I am all for running the club properly and with business savvy, but these prices will put too many of your customers off at a time when you need their voices cheering the team on. Let's not lose sight of the innovations which helped introduce youngsters to the game and build the impressive numbers of season ticket holders at the club.

  • I agree that £30 may be a little high, but a true supporter will be happy to pay this to see their team progress to the next round, I'm sure these same moaners would be at it again, in January, when we don't have the money to spend on players, the board are doing a great job, we were nearly in administration, a couple of years ago!!! We didn't get where we are today by charging silly prices. So come on you supporters, stop moaning and get behind your team. (Dunk where do you get £75 from)

  • Good old Norwich never fail to dissapoint. Spurs have been given extra seats for this match and probably being charged £45 each so why do Ncfc feel the need to screw the home fans too? I still remember the Robert chase saga when we played Inter Milan Money Money Money. For goodness sake we go every week we buy programmes, beer, pies, merchandise so why charge us top wack for a 4th round league cup tie? if it was against a lesser club they would be desperate for us to go and sell tickets cheap then.
