Sevilla are set to charge Manchester United fans an extortionate amount of money for the two clubs’ Champions League last-16 tie in February, with the Red Devils supporters being asked to pay more than they any other club they’ve faced in United’s entire European history.
Around 2,500 United supporters will travel to Spain for the mouthwatering clash against the La Liga cracks, and ESPN are reporting that the initial prices have been set at £89 for a standard match-day ticket – with a further 200 tickets being priced at £133.
After topping a group which included CSKA Moscow, Benfica and Basel, United fans were probably absolutely delighted, and in football terms, they don’t have too much to fear when it comes to facing Sevilla on the pitch.
But £89 for a ticket? Sevilla’s hierarchy are obviously looking to exploit the fact they’re playing one of the biggest clubs in world football, but that doesn’t mean the United supporters are any richer, does it?
Surely it’s about time UEFA stepped in and put in some boundaries?
What do you think?
