It may be international breaks, but news regarding Manchester United are not stopping. Here we are talking a look into all the news swirling around the club and there have certainly been some interesting stories.
Man United Respond To Barcelona’s Champions League Ticket Prices
Manchester United have made a response to Barcelona regarding the ticket prices for the Champions League quarterfinal matches. As it was previously reported, the Catalan club made a decision they have put a price tag of €120 on their tickets for away fans in the return leg of the quarter-final. Man United decided to do the same thing.
For their first-leg clash at Old Trafford, the Devils will charge opposition fans the same price in order to subsidies the cost for away tickets to £75.
“Barcelona confirmed our tickets for this game were to be priced at 102 pounds. In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are again being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club,” the club pointed out in an official statement. It might not be ideal, as Man United could have just done the better thing and embarrass Barcelona by charging usual prices and still subsidizing fans for the Camp Nou tickets.
