Manchester United to freeze season ticket prices, abolish booking fees

Also happening: discounts for juniors and cheaper tickets for the less prestigious cups.

Quiet Tuesdays need financial announcements, and Manchester United, bless them, have delivered:

Manchester United has confirmed season and match ticket prices for the 2017/18 campaign, which will see prices frozen for the sixth consecutive year, along with additional reductions for young season-ticket holders.

This means that season ticket prices for adults will begin at £532 — still a fair chunk of change, admittedly — while some tickets for under 16s have been reduced by "a minimum of 50%". There will also be a 25% reduction on League Cup games and any Europa League games "if applicable". Full details are over on the club website.

In addition to the above, the club have removed booking fees completely. This is to be welcomed, as booking fees are one of the great scandals of the internet age. How much? For you to send me an email saying "Here is your theatre ticket. Enjoy your evening."? Get out.

But we digress.

Anyway, we can assume all this relative largesse on the part of the club is a sign that sales of tractor partnerships are proceeding acceptably. Do we have many season ticket holders reading tBB? Any views? Stick them below.
