Manchester United Reduce Away Ticket Prices

Wed 9th Oct 2013 | Money & Finance

Manchester United have announced a reduction in away match ticket prices for this season.

After consultation with the Fans’ Forum, the Premier League champions have pledged to reduce the price of every away ticket bought by a United fan by £4, starting with their game against Fulham on 2 November. 

The decision comes as part of the £200,000 set aside by each Premier League club to encourage more fans to travel to away games.

The discount will be applied automatically by the club when fans pay for their away tickets and any money that is not used this season will be used with next year’s £200,000 budget to continue the policy.

United are the latest Premier League club to announce their away pricing initiative following the league’s decision to set aside a £12m pot over the next three seasons in a bid to halt the decline in away attendances.

Last season, Arsenal caused outrage amongst fans across the country after they charged Manchester City fans £60 for their game at the Emirates prompting protests outside the Premier League’s headquarters in London.

The Football Supporters Federation launched its ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ campaign to which over 20,000 fans outlined their support for ticket prices to be reduced.

One club looking to lead the way with this initiative is Newcastle United who are reportedly set to announce a reciprocal deal where they will charge visiting fans £20 should theirs be given the same deal.
