Manchester United raise ticket prices for Sevilla supporters

Manchester United have decided to charge Sevilla fans £89 for their Champions League clash

Manchester United have decided to charge Sevilla fans £89 for their Champions League clash

Not only have United responded by subsidising supporters the £35 difference, they have also increased the price for visiting fans at March's return leg at Old Trafford to £89 as well.

In an email to ticket holders for that game, United explained it would be refunding them 35 pounds, which is 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.

Travelling United supporters must cough up £89 each for February's first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, where Liverpool fans were charged £54 in November.

The whole thing started when La Liga side Sevilla made a decision to charge the visiting fans section €100 per ticket which prompted outrage from Man United fans and the club itself in getting involved in trying to convince Sevilla to lower the price.

Sevilla claim that United have not followed UEFA's ticket guidelines in allocating 5% of the tickets to their supporters and had been given just under 3,000 tickets when they should have had 3,800.

Old Trafford officials held talks with their Sevilla counterparts in which they requested that the "unfair" and "excessive" ticket prices were reduced after complaints by supporters.

"We have been working with the club since we became aware of the ridiculous £89 Sevilla (away) ticket price", they said in a statement on Twitter.

"As a result of the changes to ticket prices for away fans, should we gain any additional revenue after having refunded our supporters, we will donate this to the Manchester United Foundation".

It means Sevilla fans will be hit the hardest, something the Premier League side said was necessary to avoid future clubs trying to rip off their travelling supporters.

"Sevilla will be in contact with UEFA over both Manchester United's failure to make five per cent of tickets available to away fans, as well as the club's price increase after a formal application for an away allocation".

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. "We welcome UEFA's willingness to discuss these issues".
