Manchester United hit back at Sevilla as ticket row continues


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.

It was also significantly higher than the £54 (€60) Liverpool fans were charged to see their side's group stage 3-3 draw at the same venue last November.

United attempted to persuade Sevilla to lower their prices but discussions between the two clubs failed to lead to a significant reduction.

In response the English club have announced that they intend to charge Sevilla's travelling contingent £89 a ticket for the return fixture, matching the figure most United were expected to hand over.

To pay for that gesture, United also chose to increase ticket prices for Sevilla fans by £35 each in an effort to protest at what they see is unfair exploitation of their fans.

Manchester United have responded to their Champions League ticketing row with Sevilla by increasing prices for the Spanish side's supporters.

United have written to fans to say this move is, "a deterrent to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling supporters".

United plan to use the proceeds from those ticket sales to refund their own supporters who have bought tickets for the game in southern Spain.

"In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are unfairly being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club", wrote Sam Kelleher, the Head of Ticketing and Membership.

Sevilla have chosen to escalate the issue by suggesting that the Red Devils are breaking the rules over the number of tickets made available to away fans.

UEFA rules stipulate that at least five per cent of a stadium capacity's should be available to visiting supporters, yet Sevilla claim United have not offered them 3,800 tickets for security reasons.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (M.U.S.T) praised the club.

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

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

"This has been discussed with Uefa on a number of occasions, and is supported by both the Police and the Safety Advisory Group", a United spokesperson said.
