Default £6.50!!!!

For a pint!

I’ll pass thanks.

Shame the people who spilt theirs all over the floor around mr didn’t pass as well.

I like a couple of pints during the day but I am not getting ripped off for one!

Have they cut prices? I thought it used to be £8? TBH if you add the fact it's a sports event to London prices £6.50 is pretty cheap.

I pay £4.50 for a pint at a League 2 football in the westcountry.

It's the going rate, so I wouldn't call it a rip off

No it was £5.50 last year as we always joke it seems to go up by 20p a year. Obviously the Spurs effect has kicked in at Wembley this time around.

If you think that £6.50 is a fair price for a pint, ill leave you too it. We drank in the City of London before the game and paid £3.29.

I actually started to queue and saw the price and decided to pass.

For a pint! Bargain!

I thought you were going to say that's how much they were charging for a packet of crisps.

It's a London sporting event, it's going to be expensive to buy a beer. Its been like that since time itself started

My mate went to the Broncos@Jets game last week and mentioned the cost of a pint was a giddy $13. Maybe we have it good after all.

Maybe I am just getting old, but a 15% hike on last year, I thought was taking the ****! If it had been £5.60 I probably wouldn't have even commented.

Still I am old enough to remember being shocked at when we first got through £2 for a pint!

Default $9 a bottle at Gillette

I started queuing for beer with a little left in the 2nd quarter and was still there halfway into the 3rd quarter because the card machines went down, ran out of budweiser and just left us waiting without serving people... So much for only 35% of Wembley stadium accepting cash.

Went to Gillette stadium a couple of weeks ago for Patriots and Dolphins... People actually wanted to serve people instead of being slow and lazy and Never waited more than 30 seconds for a cold aluminium bottle of bud/bud light its quickly avaliable anywhere and walking around, it was $9 a bottle (pretty much around £7).

We joked about how the price had jumped £1 in a year from £5.50 to £6.50. They also had cans of Bass for £5 but if you went and asked for them, the servers just looked at your blankly like you were speaking a foreign language.

This always happens without fail lol I felt bad for the guy next to me, his programme was ruined (though it might have been his own beer).
