News For Season Ticket Holders

News For Season Ticket Holders

Old Trafford's capacity will rise to 76,000 by the start of next season, and United have decided to release another 7,000 season tickets, taking the overall figure up to 50,000.

But, United have made it compulsory to join the cup scheme, which commits fans to buying tickets for all home cup games.

Over 20,000 existing season ticket holders are members of the scheme.

United spokesman: 'We are not asking fans to pay up front but we have put a condition on our new season tickets that supporters will automatically have to join our cup ticket scheme, to which many of our current season ticket holders currently subscribe.'

United played eight cup ties at home this season - four in Europe, three in the Carling Cup and an FA Cup replay with Burton - only two of which came close to reaching capacity.

On current prices, those extra games would cost around £240.

This will obviously add fuel to the fire for those already sceptical about Malcolm Glazer's ownership.
