Manchester United are to refund part of the �89 ($120) ticket price their fans are having to pay to attend the Champions League last 16 first leg match with Sevilla in Spain the English club announced on Wednesday.
United will refund each fan �35, taken from the �89 they are have decided to charge the Sevilla fans who come to the return leg in Manchester on March 13 after the Spanish club refused to budge over their prices for the February 21 clash.
That means United fans will pay �54, the same as what Liverpool fans paid to see their side draw 3-3 in Seville in the group stage.
“In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are unfairly being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club,” Manchester United said in a statement.
“We have received lots of requests from individuals and supporter groups to intervene in this matter.
“This has been raised with Sevilla, and internally, but ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price of tickets for our fans to what we view as a reasonable level.”
