By iSportconnect | January 29, 2013
Arsenal have announced that they will freeze ticket prices for next season.
The Premier League club have some of the most expensive tickets in the league and this news follows recent controversy over the cost of attending games at the Emirates Stadium. Manchester City recently returned 912 tickets that were unsold as a result of the £62 price.
A statement released by Arsenal today said: “Arsenal Football Club has announced it will not be making any ticket price increases next season. The move follows a full review by the Arsenal Board which included an assessment of the current economic environment and feedback from fans’ groups.”
“The price freeze means Arsenal will have made only two across the board inflation-linked price increases in the eight years since it has been at Emirates Stadium.”
“This season the Club introduced new pricing categories which created 90, ambulance 000 cheaper tickets at £25 as part of its drive to provide more tickets at affordable prices. In addition it continued the policy of offering prices at £10 for adults and £5 for children for home Capital One Cup ties.”
“The price freeze applies to all match ticket prices including season tickets in both General Admission and Club Level. Club Level season ticket renewals will begin on February 12.”
