There was a time when the biggest complaint among Manchester United fans was the ever-rising cost of tickets. The club seem to have taken the protests on board and have announced today that season and match ticket prices for the 2017/18 campaign will see prices frozen for the sixth consecutive year.
There will also be additional reductions for young season-ticket holders, as the club aims to strengthen its supporter base among the young.
The club has reduced the cost of season tickets by a minimum of 50% for Under 16s in East Stand Tier 2, Sir Alex Ferguson Stand Tier 2 and Quadrants Tier 2. This is in addition to the dedicated Family Stand and Sir Alex Ferguson Stand Tier 3 which will remain at just £10 per game.
There will also be a 25% reduction applied to home match tickets next season, in addition to the 25% discount already applied to UEFA Europa League games (if applicable), providing further savings.
The seventh price freeze in eight years means season ticket prices start from £532 for adults, with a variety of concessionary tickets available.
Along with the price freeze and reductions on ticket prices, supporters will benefit from the removal of booking fees on all products from next season.
United’s group managing director Richard Arnold commented: “We recognise the huge commitment shown by our incredible fans, in supporting the team, both financially and the time dedicated to attend all home games.
“The price freeze, and in some cases reductions, ensures that our loyal, long-standing fans can continue to support the team with the fantastic backing they give the manager and players at every home game.
“We are hugely thankful for the unrivalled, sold-out support which plays a huge part in making Old Trafford a tough place for any team to come and play.
“We have had record numbers of season ticket renewals and demand continues to grow at an unprecedented rate thanks to the fantastic support we continue to have at Manchester United.”
