Manchester United raise cost of away tickets to match Sevilla prices
Jan 13, 2018, 01:07
The move is unlikely to please Sevilla supporters, who will now be charged £89 for the return leg at Old Trafford, with United using the extra money generated to subsidise their travelling fans.
Sevilla's decision to charge United fans $NZD166 for the match at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan sparked outrage among the Red Devils faithful and led to talks between the clubs to try to reach a compromise.
"Sevilla will subsidise the tickets of the fans who go to Manchester by the same amount the prices rise, so they will not pay more than the 60 euros established (by Manchester United) in the first place", read Sevilla's statement.
Sevilla responded by saying they would subsidise their own supporters' tickets to the Old Trafford match. "Therefore, we have taken the hard decision to charge Sevilla fans the same amount as our fans have been charged for the away fixture".
Manchester United entered a dialogue with their Spanish counterparts but were unable to get them to lower their prices - with a handful of top-tier tickets costing £133.
United outlined their stance in a letter to ticket holders, which was issued on Wednesday morning.
"We have made a decision to increase the ticket prices for Sevilla fans for the game at Old Trafford, and use this increase to subsidise our fans, as we want this to act as a deterrent to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling supporters".
Liverpool fans were charged £54 to watch their side face Sevilla in the Champions League Group Stage earlier this season and, by refunding £35, United supporters will now pay the same figure. He said: 'We have been working with the club since the ridiculous £89 price was known to ensure our fans didn't end up paying this much.
This was the difference between the 89 pound ticket price and the 54 pound price Liverpool supporters were charged by Sevilla during the group stage of the competition.
Now Sevilla insist their allocation of 2,995 tickets is just 4.1 per cent of Old Trafford's capacity and that Champions League rules dictate that home sides make 5 per cent of the seats available to visiting supporters.
United are being very sound on one hand but did they really need to hike the Sevilla fans' tickets to fund it?
