BOSSES at Manchester United will up ticket prices for away fans when they host Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg to subsidise their own supporters heading to Spain for the return.
According to the Premier League club, they were allocated 4,610 tickets for the second leg and informed by Barca that the price for away fans at the Nou Camp would be €119 – reportedly the most expensive ticket to a United game outside of a final.
As such, United has hiked its ticket prices for Barca fans heading for Old Trafford to the same amount. The extra cash will reportedly ensure United supporters pay just £75 (€87) for the second leg.
Last month, Bayern Munich fans protested against the cost of Champions League tickets with banners during the first leg of their last-16 tie at Liverpool, with the supporters of the Premier League club also backing them at Anfield.
United host Barcelona at Old Trafford on April 10 and the return leg at the Nou Camp will be played on April 16.
