Manchester United offer fans £15 tickets next season
Manchester United will offer £15 tickets for 18 to 25-year-old fans next season as the club look to improve their atmosphere at Old Trafford.
Next season will mark the seventh consecutive campaign where United will freeze matchday ticket prices with the club's group managing director Richard Arnold claiming that the introduction of £15 tickets for the pitchside seats in the lower Stretford End has been made after consultation with fan groups.
“The club enjoys unparalleled support and we recognise the sacrifice many fans make to watch the team home and away," Arnold told the club's website.
"Continuing the freeze in match and season tickets for next season is driven by our belief in supporting fans attending our games.
“The introduction of reduced ticket prices for young adults in the Stretford End lower tier stems from suggestions generated by fan groups through our fans’ forum, aimed at building on the tradition of vibrant support.”
Earlier this season Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho bemoaned that there was a lack of intensity from the home fans and that Old Trafford was too 'quiet'.
“It's not Portsmouth - I remember when I was in the Premier League and for such a small stadium, the atmosphere was incredible," said Mourinho.
“Here it is a bit quiet and is not very, very enthusiastic. But the players like to play at home.”
