Man United fans fury as Sevilla charge £133 for tickets

  • Manchester United have been allocated 2,650 seats at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
  • Majority cost £89 with around 200 seats priced at an extortionate £133
  • Liverpool supporters were charged £54 at the same venue last month

Manchester United fans have hit out after it emerged that Sevilla are charging a staggering £133 for tickets for February’s Champions League clash in Spain.

The move has sparked outrage, with many taking to social media to brand the Spanish club ‘a disgrace’. 

United have been allocated 2,650 seats for the match at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium which have been split into two price groups.

The majority cost an eye-watering £89 and the second, which consists of 200 seats, are a scarcely-believable £133.

Some United fans claimed that they had paid less for a flight to Seville than what they are now faced with handing over for a ticket for the round of 16 away leg. 

Others called on Old Trafford officials to intervene and send their supporters a helping hand.

United’s travel partners, Thomas Cook Sport, are charging £279 for a day trip to see the match and £399 for an overnight stay.

Liverpool supporters were charged £54 when Jurgen Klopp’s team travelled to the same venue last month.

A number of fans of the Merseyside club alleged that they were mistreated by Spanish police, with some allegedly assaulted and denied entry to the stadium for the 3-3 draw. 

Supporters of Leicester City, who paid £51, reported similar treatment at the hands of the local constabulary when they visited the city for a Champions League tie in February.

United are aware of the situation and are looking into it. 

They came under fire themselves earlier this month when it emerged they were charging Derby County supporters £45 for next month’s FA Cup third-round tie while many Premier League clubs are charging £10. 

Sevilla were yet to respond when contacted for comment.
