March 10 – Manchester United have announced that they have frozen season ticket prices for the 2020-21 campaign for a ninth consecutive season.
The club launched its season ticket renewal process yesterday with the most expensive adult ticket costing £950 and the cheapest £532. That is the equivalent of individual matches tickets ranging from £50-£28.
Season ticket holders have until May 1 to renew, otherwise the seat will be resold. The club says it has a season ticket waiting list of 100,000. The highest priced Man Utd season ticket prices for the 2019/20 season are the joint fifth (with Manchester City) most expensive in the league
2020-21 ticket pricing will also see the club retain its commitment of making seats affordable for younger fans. The £10 per game season ticket for Under 16s in family areas and the 25% discount for 18-20 year olds and free group tickets for local children for certain cup games will be retained.
This season Man Utd introduced their so-called ‘atmosphere section’ – better known as their ‘singing’ section. Next season they are expanding it by a further 2,000, and also have an application in to bring a standing area back to Old Trafford.
“We have worked closely with fan groups and through the Fans’ Forum to help achieve this shared goal of reviving the Stretford End to its traditional status as the heartbeat of our matchday support,” said group managing director Richard Arnold.
“We have also submitted a proposal to the local authority to trial a rail seating area within the stadium. Our belief is that the introduction of rail seating would enhance spectator safety in areas of the stadium where, as with other clubs, we have seen examples of persistent standing.”
The club has also completed an £11 million expansion of accessible facilities for disabled supporters and is continuing an ongoing refurbishment programme of other stadium facilities including the 1999 Suite, Knights Lounge, 1968 Suite and Centennial boxes.
