United fans blast ‘exploitative’ ticket pricing

Manchester United fans have hit out at ‘exploitative’ ticket pricing from Sevilla for the Champions League meeting scheduled for February.

The two clubs, who have together won the last four Europa League titles, meet at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan in two months but the ticket pricing announced by the Andalucians has drawn criticism.

The cheapest tickets will set travelling fans back £89 (€100) with the pricier tickets priced at £133 (€150) – significantly more than the £54 (€70) were charged last month.

“It is too early to know whether we can change this but we are already in contact with both Manchester United and Football Supporters Europe (FSE) and will be lobbying UEFA and other bodies who may be able to influence this exploitative pricing,” Duncan Drasdo, chief executive of the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

United's travel partners, Thomas Cook Sport, are charging £279 for a day trip to see the match and £399 for an overnight stay.
