Man United to raise price of Sevilla fans' tickets in price war

  • That will mean their fans have paid the same amount as Liverpool’s supporters paid in Spain

Manchester United have made a decision to charge visiting Sevilla fans £89 for their Champions League last 16 clash in response to the Spanish side's pricing strategy for the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

United were given 2,450 tickets priced at £89 (€100) for the clash with Sevilla, with a further 200 tickets priced at £133 (€150).

The two clubs have been engaged in a price war over tickets.

Sevilla's decision to charge United fans $NZD166 for the match at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan sparked outrage among the Red Devils faithful and led to talks between the clubs to try to reach a compromise.

The £89 ticket was found to be the most expensive non-final or semi-final ticket offered to United's travelling support in the club's European history, with Manchester United Supporters' Trust at the time describing the charge as "exorbitant".

"We are delighted United have fought our corner on this issue and are now working with the club to engage with UEFA to look at the non-member fees and the lack of concession tickets which have often been used to hike up prices for our away fans".

"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".

"This has been raised with Sevilla, and internally, but ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price of tickets for our fans to what we view as a reasonable level". The £35 difference will be refunded prior to the game taking place.

That was more than the £54 Liverpool supporters were charged earlier in the competition - and United today responded by announcing they would subsidise their fans by £35 each for their seats.

Sevilla are charging United supporters £89 for a ticket in the uncovered away end at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

A Manchester United spokesman said: "We are aware of the regulations regarding equal pricing for home and away fans and we will comply".
