Manchester United have frozen their season ticket prices for the TENTH straight year as they prepare to welcome fans back to Old Trafford in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
It has now been over a year since supporters were in the stands at a home Manchester United game, but the club are readying themselves for the end of lockdown and have announced their plans for the 2021-22 season.
It has been revealed that the cost of a season ticket will once again stay the same, marking a decade of price freezes in the general admission areas of the stadium.

Speaking about the impending return of the club’s supporters, Group Managing Director Richard Arnold said: ‘This past year has tested all of our resilience. Fans have missed being at Old Trafford and we have missed them being there.
‘While we will continue to plan for every eventuality, we are announcing our plans for Season Ticket holders for next season with optimism that this will be a fresh start and a long-awaited step towards normality.
‘Season Ticket prices have been frozen for the 2021/22 season, as part of our ongoing commitment to fair pricing that has been a fundamental part of our ticketing policy for some time. This marks the tenth successive season that the club has kept prices frozen in general admission areas of the stadium.’
Supporters who had season tickets last season can roll their money over to buy their seat for the next campaign, and the club have confirmed that they will offer full refunds for any games that fans can’t attend due to Covid.

United are hopeful that fans will return soon, perhaps even before the end of this season
There is, though, optimism from United that fans may even be allowed back before the start of next season, with Arnold admitting that he hopes the end of this season can see a slight return to normality.
‘The last year has demonstrated the ability of Premier League clubs to deliver bio-secure, safe events and we are committed to creating a safe experience for all those who attend future matches at Old Trafford.
‘A new Supporters’ Code of Conduct and a range of health and safety measures have already been communicated to our fans. We are eager to be reunited with them and to see the new stadium operation in action, potentially towards the end of this season.’
