If a Premier League ticket costs you about £30, then why should an FA Cup ticket take £55 from your pocket?
That’s the question Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are asking the FA, with the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) launching an attack on the governing body and big clubs.
Wolves requested an away allocation of 3,048 for tonight’s match, but as late as yesterday evening, 200 tickets were still available.
The FSA, which helped coordinate the campaign for the English top tier ticket price rules, told The Daily Telegraph: “This might not be a Premier League game, but the FA Cup should never be used as an excuse to ramp up costs and rip off fans. Keep the cup affordable.”
United, however, said the fixture was priced fairly. Wolves could have requested more tickets for the match and the pricing of £37 to £47 for season-ticket holders is comparable to home ticket rates, the club said.
Well, we should blame United because, in the FA Cup, the Football Association allows clubs to set their own prices.
In the draw at Molineux earlier this month, United fans were charged £30 in the Steve Bull stand or £25 in the Stan Cullis stand.
Surely, if Wolves end up winning this tie, I doubt the noise at Old Trafford will be bearable! The away fans will definitely own it!
