Few of us expect fast food to be as delicious as a home-cooked meal or a Michelin-starred restaurant, but this thread of the worst meals served in football stadiums will have you thinking about parting with your hard-earned cash.
Football fans have taken to Twitter to share photos of the disappointing food they’ve been served in stadiums across the UK after being charged an eye-watering amount.
From burnt sandwiches to crunchy to cheap ingredients selling for an outrageous price, user @FootyScran has amassed more than 44,000 followers by collecting photos of the worst foods.
For example, a supporter at Manchester United’s home ground at Old Trafford bought a cheese and ham panini for £4.70.
But when they opened it, the bread was all black.

Derby County fan Carl Porter quipped: ‘Burned to a crisp like Man Utd’s title ambitions.’
Gareth Plimmer poked fun at United’s chant ‘Ole’s at the wheel – to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’.
He said, “Ole is sitting by the grill.”
Chelsea fan Danny Pearson received a flaming pie and sausage roll at fellow Premier Leicester City’s King Power Stadium.
He said it looked like Old Trafford.
Danny said, ‘This pie and sausage roll in Leicester probably had the same chef.’

One person got over 2,000 likes on a photo of their disappointing hot dog bought from Morecambe FC for £4
Another football fan admitted they were less than impressed by being charged £4 for a slice of processed cheese and chips (pictured) in Birmingham City
Another disgruntled supporter was angry with their over cooked £4.10 Luton Town cheeseburger.
The burger and the bap were both seared.
Stuart Hutton quipped, ‘Why did they even take a bite? This should have been back right away.’
Emmett Moore added, ‘Why didn’t they stop cooking when it was done?’
Supporters also said clubs were scoring own goals with their little hot dogs.
A small sausage served for £3 at Burton Albion was called ‘outrageous’ by fans, who joked they would have thrown the food back
One served at Morecambe cost a whopping £4 and another at fellow League One outfit Burton Albion was £3.
But both had a tiny sausage that seemed lost in the buns.
Wolf fan Matthew David said, “That’s disgraceful.”
Another added, “I’d throw that back at them.”
Birmingham City was also criticized for selling cheap chips – a slice of processed cheese alongside the chips for £4.
One supporter said: ‘I would appeal and get your money back.’
A flood of reactions to the photos has prompted football fans to request their money back after serving the outrageous meals
