The Manchester United hierarchy have made a pledge to reimburse supporters if the rest of this season’s matches are cancelled, or if they are played behind closed doors – at a potential cost of £6 million.
The English Premier League has been suspended for several weeks now as the authorities fight to stem the spread of the coronavirus, with the Red Devils last seen in action on March 12 against Austrian side LASK Linz in the Europa League last-16.
It remains to be seen when the English top-flight, and leagues across the continent, will return, with the Prem suspended until April 30 at the very earliest, but season ticket holders at Old Trafford can sleep a little easier tonight.
According to the Mirror, the decision makers at United are in discussions with fan groups over what the best course of action is to take, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side scheduled to play four more home matches before the campaign’s end, with around 50,000 season ticket holders at every fixture, at a total overall cost of around £1.5m per match – £6m in all.
For one of the richest clubs in football, it might not seem like the biggest commitment in the world but, what do you think of the gesture?
