Man Utd freeze season ticket prices as part of post-lockdown plans for fans

Manchester United have today announced they have frozen season ticket prices for next year.

It is the 10th consecutive season United have chosen not to increase the price of season tickets, the decision part a range of support measures as football emerges from lockdown.

United’s season ticket renewal window opens in June, with the club hopeful of welcoming supporters back to Old Trafford next season after a year of being unable to attend matches.

If future games are required to be played behind closed doors or with restricted capacity, United confirmed they will offer season ticket holders a refund or pro-rata rebate.

Richard Arnold, United’s Group Managing Director, 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.

United haven’t played in front of their supporters in over a year

“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.

“Our policy for season ticket holders is fair and simple – fans will only pay for matches that they are entitled to attend if capacity restrictions are required.”

Fans who have not yet cashed in their refund from 2019/20 will be able to carry their rebate over, to be used towards their renewal for next season.

There is also an option to take one season out and retain previous loyalty privileges earned when buying a new seat for the 2022/23 campaign.

United have also introduced an interest-free instalment plan for those fans who have been unable to obtain finance via the club’s buy-now pay-later programme.

Existing season ticket holders have until April 30 to indicate to United their intention to renew, with the renewal process going live on June 7, with a deadline of June 30.
