Manchester United Confirm How They’ll Combat £89 Sevilla Tickets

Manchester United have confirmed how they’ll combat Sevilla charging their fans £89 for their Champions League last-16 away game.

The Old Trafford club today sent an email out to supporters to tell them that the controversial £89 ticket price set by the Spanish club for next month’s game would remain.

It had initially been criticised for being the most expensive ticket United fans have ever had to pay for on an away day.

But Sevilla won’t budge – so United have had to fight fire with fire and charge the Spanish side’s supporters £89 to take in the second leg at Old Trafford two weeks later.

They’re doing that so they can subsidise tickets for their own fans, while using this tactic as a deterrent for any clubs who may want to charge United supporters more in the future:

It’s ridiculous that the situation has got to this point – particularly with fans on both sides now set to lose out.

But maybe United’s tactic will work and eventually lead to Sevilla dropping the price for away supporters visiting their Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium next month.
