Manchester United appear to be more in demand than ever before – with the club revealing a season ticket waiting list exceeding 100,000 supporters.
The Red Devils fans are currently on something of a high after Sunday’s emphatic 2-0 victory over rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford, which takes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to an impressive 10 matches unbeaten in all competitions.
And some fans would’ve been even more delighted yesterday when, in the aftermath of the City display, the United hierarchy revealed they’d be freezing season ticket prices for punters in general admission areas, making it the ninth season in succession that a price freeze has been employed.
But, as stated on the club’s official website, it seems United could fill their 76,000 all-seater Theatre of Dreams more than twice over, with 100,000 people waiting for the right to call themselves Manchester United season ticket holders.
Moreover, in addition to the price freeze, fans will benefit from a series of initiatives to improve the match-day experience next season including an expansion of the dedicated area for singing fans in the Stretford End, as well as the potential introduction of a rail-seating trial.
They might still be waiting for their first Premier League trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013 but that waiting list figure is pretty remarkable, eh?
