Huge Price Rise In Season Tickets

United have confirmed an average season-ticket price rise of 12.3%, with some seats going up as much as 16.7%.

Executive seats will be hardest hit by the rises, put genuine working class fans can be priced out of watching the Red Devils.

Mark Longden, chairman of the Independent Manchester United Supporters Association:

'Traditionally, there are three reasons for having a season ticket at Manchester United.
You were guaranteed to see every home game, you could apply for tickets to away games and you could get a cup final ticket.

'But the capacity has expanded so much United are pleading with people to buy season tickets now. There are so many, you would only have a one-in-two chance of getting a final ticket and less than a one-in-19 chance of getting into an away game.

'When you add in the amount of games that get switched, even the hardcore fan is going to think twice about spending £35 to go watch Birmingham at 5.15pm on a Saturday evening.

'It is far easier - and cheaper - to go and watch the game on TV in a pub somewhere, where, it has to be said, the atmosphere is often better as well.

'The more prices go up, the more people fall off the edge and, without a doubt, there will be empty seats for league games at Old Trafford next season.'
