Man United to raise price of Sevilla fans' tickets in price war

This was the difference between the 89 pound ticket price and the 54 pound price Liverpool supporters were charged by Sevilla during the group stage of the competition.

Ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price to what we view as a reasonable level.

Manchester United will charge Sevilla supporters £89 to watch their side at Old Trafford in their Champions League last-16 tie after the Liga club chose to charge United supporters the same to watch the first leg in Spain.

Sevilla sparked an angry response from United fans last month after announcing they would be charging visiting supporters £89 for the first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on February 21.

Sevilla have threatened to report Manchester United to UEFA as part of the furious ticket row between the Champions League rivals.

The Red Devils hit back in the bust-up and made a decision to charge Sevilla fans travelling to Old Trafford the same amount for the return clash at Old Trafford in March.

Sevilla has confirmed it will contact UEFA over Manchester United's sudden ticket price increase and the English team's failure to make five per cent of Old Trafford available to away fans.




They will use the extra money generated to refund United fans heading to the game in Spain - now £35-a-head, in line with Sevilla's £54 tickets for their clash against Liverpool in the group stage - and promised any extra cash to the Manchester United Foundation.

It read: "In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are unfairly being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club". He said: 'We have been working with the club since the ridiculous £89 price was known to ensure our fans didn't end up paying this much.

The move comes after extensive talks between both clubs failed to see them reach a compromise or bring ticket prices down.

Sevilla refused to back down and so now Manchester United have chose to charge visiting Sevilla the exact same amount.

In an email to ticket holders for that game, Manchester United explained they would be refunding to them 35 pounds.

United said they had felt it was only fair to charge their opponents fans a similar amount.
