    Fair play to Derby Co owner Mel Morris he has put £87,000 of his own money in to bring the price of the Man U tickets down to £30.

Sevilla charging Man U fans £89 each for 2,450 standard tickets and 200 tickets at £133 each. Initial expectations were Man U tickets would be all priced at £54.

£89 in Seville would get you 20 beers and 20 plates of food. 

Cheeky that.

Ridiculous pricing cos they know they'll get the demand for them. I was at Benfica V United in October. Ticket was only £40.

LOL

Clubs are entitled to charge what they want in fairness so my vengeful/selfish view would argue for United to respond in kind. Fcuk any moral high ground when it comes to club competitions like a Champions League knock out.

 Sevilla have broken no rules in charging as much as £133 for some seats offered to Manchester United supporters for their Champions League tie.

Liverpool travelled to Seville last month for a Champions League group game when tickets cost as little as £54, so the Man United game marks a near 65 per cent price rise for standard tickets.

200 VIP tickets at 150 Euro, and the plebs have theirs for just 100. Euro is the local currency of course.

Alternatively, they can watch it for a fraction of the amount on BT, or for free on TV3. I must say though that 150 quid is a lot to fork out to watch a 0-0 draw.

Of course though, they'll obligingly pay up. Difficult to have any sympathy for a club that isn't exactly known for charging bargain bucket ticket prices at their own home matches.

Well at the end of the day it's not the people who are setting the ticket prices that are getting shafted, it's the fans and it's not their fault their club has screwed fans over in the past

Good on Vincent Kompany saying EPL clubs should reduce their ticket prices.
Thumbs Up 
 
He made the point that  Manchester City are not reliant on gate receipts they made up just 13% of their total income last season so a price reduction wouldn't really harm city.

Is Kompany offering to reduce his wages to help cover this ?

While I agree with his sentiments entirely it does seem a little in bad taste, not just for the reasons Gary hints at above but I can't imagine an employee in many other businesses telling their bosses what to charge and why.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

None of the big clubs are reliant on gate receipts anymore.

When Uli Hoeness (he knows about money LOL) was asked why ticket prices are so cheap in Germany he said that if he wanted to raise €3m extra a year he wouldn't charge the fans, all he had to do was pick up the phone.
