  • Manchester United to subsidise €100 tickets for Sevilla clash

But the Premier League club were left fuming when Sevilla chose to charge £89 for United fans to watch the first leg in Spain on February 13.

Manchester United brass have responded by subsidising the £35 difference for every fan who has bought a ticket.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (M.U.S.T) praised the club.

United have matched the figure that Sevilla have insisted on charging visiting fans for the first leg in Spain, and the Red Devils will use the proceeds from their ticket sales to refund £35 to their own travelling supporters.

The Daily Mail report that Sevilla had allocated 2450 tickets for United fans at €100 and another additional 200 tickets set at €150 but given what Manchester United have made a decision to do with regards to subsidising their own fans tickets, a ticket will cost around €60.

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.

UEFA rules stipulate that at least 5% of a stadium capacity's should be available to visiting supporters, yet Sevilla claim United have not offered them the appropriate 3,800 match tickets.

'We have chose to increase the ticket prices for Sevilla fans for the game at Old Trafford, and use this increase to subsidise our fans, as we want this to act as a deterrent to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling supporters.

The first-leg of the Round of 16 tie takes place in Sevilla on Wednesday 21 February, with the second-leg at Old Trafford on Tuesday 13 March.

It means Sevilla fans will be hit the hardest, something the Premier League side said was necessary to avoid future clubs trying to rip off their travelling supporters.

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

"Our primary objective was 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.

"Further to our recent confirmation that you were successful for the Sevilla away game, we wanted to inform you of a change in what you will be charged for this game".

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