Man Utd hit Sevilla fans with extra £35 charge in ticket row

Man Utd hit Sevilla fans with extra £35 charge in ticket row

"This has been raised with Sevilla, and internally, but ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price of tickets for our fans", he added.

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.

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.

"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".

United's hike in prices will mean they will be lowering their travelling support's ticket prices to £54, the same amount paid by Liverpool fans in the group stage of their encounter with the La Liga club.

The Red Devils hit back in the bust-up and chose to charge Sevilla fans travelling to Old Trafford the same amount for the return clash at Old Trafford in March.

It read: "In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are unfairly being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club".




"Our primary objective was to ensure our fans didn't end up paying this much".

United attempted to get Sevilla to lower the cost but, having failed to persuade them to do so, the club have said they will respond by hiking up the prices to the same amount for away supporters at Old Trafford in March's second leg.

Before Manchester United and Sevilla clash on the pitch in the last-16 of the Champions League next month, the clubs have clashed off it.

"Further to our recent confirmation that you were successful for the Sevilla away game, we wanted to inform you of a change in what you will be charged for this game".

United say they will use the proceeds to refund their own supporters for the "unfair" £89 charge to attend the first leg of the tie in Spain on 21 February.

In an email to ticket holders for that game, Manchester United explained they would be refunding to them 35 pounds.
