Work on the stand has been ongoing for the last five years, with Fulham fans paying up to £3,000 for a season ticket.

The prices for tickets at Craven Cottage are among the most expensive in the Premier League.

The redevelopment is planned to increase the capacity of the stand from 4,689 to 8,650.

This will see the overall capacity of Craven Cottage rise to 29,300 spectators.

There will also be new restaurants, cafes, bars and a corporate hospitality and event space.

After hearing the latest news, supporters were left fuming as they took to social media.

One fan slammed: “£3,000 for a season ticket and it STILL won’t be finished over five years since works standard.

“A complete and utter disgrace.”


A second wrote: “This is embarrassing.”

A third commented: “Five years is a disgrace.”

A fourth said: “Shambles.”

Another added: “Clowns at the top running the circus.”

The Cottagers have recently shown a presentation to the local community to reveal what the Riverside Stand will look like next year.

The work was originally expected to be completed by 2021 and cost £100million.
