    Pricing at the Hammers’ London Stadium home was branded “robbery” and a “scam” by their supporters online.

    The burger doesn’t even come with chips.

    Fans had already complained at being charged £7.60 for a pint of Heineken and Birra Moretti lager and £4.50 for a bottle of Coca-Cola at the opening match against Manchester City last weekend.

    Bars at the ground want £6.20 for a pint of alcohol-free Heineken and £7.30 for a pint of Strongbow cider.

    Packets of crisps are £2.50.

    Hammers fan Lee Mason said: “The stadium and modern football has killed everything good about West Ham.”

    Mark Kelly said: “B****y robbery.”

    Another, called Lee, joked: “West Scam.”

    Richard Stone said of the £9.50 burger: “Does that want to be a 1/4 pounder when it grows up?”

    A snap of the eye-watering prices was shared on an Instagram page dedicated to foot- ball with the words: “If you are off to West Ham this season you’ll need to remortgage your house for a few pints.”

    West Ham lease the stadium and do not set prices or profit from catering.

    The club has threatened to sue landlords if there is no cut in beer prices before their next home game after a fans’ backlash.
