Sevilla, United in ticket war

Man Utd have responded to the Sevilla ticket scandal in the perfect way

In addition, United even retaliated against Sevilla by increasing the ticket price for their travelling fans for the second-leg at Old Trafford to the same asking price of £89 (€101) and allocated just 2,995 tickets for the visiting Sevilla support.

The first-leg of the tie will see United travel to Seville and the La Liga side have come in for criticism as a result of what they are charging the travelling Manchester support.

Old Trafford officials held talks with their Sevilla counterparts in which they requested that the "unfair" and "excessive" ticket prices were reduced after complaints by supporters. The club will then use the €40 difference per ticket they stand to earn to subsidise their own fans travelling down to Sevilla for the return.

United pledged any extra revenue would be donated to the club's foundation.

A Manchester United spokesman told Reuters: "We are aware of the regulations regarding equal pricing for home and away fans and we will comply".

We were looking at all of that stuff and also watched a lot of the James Bond films, but not the new ones. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture.

"Sevilla will inform UEFA that United have not complied with the rule that away teams are offered 5 per cent of the capacity in tickets, only offering 4.1 per cent".

"We are delighted United have fought our corner on this issue and are now working with the club to engage with UEFA to look at the non-member fees and the lack of concession tickets which have often been used to hike up prices for our away fans". Ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price to what we view as a reasonable level.

To pay for that gesture, United also chose to increase ticket prices for Sevilla fans by £35 each in an effort to protest at what they see is unfair exploitation of their fans. Therefore we have taken the hard decision to charge Sevilla fans for the return leg at Old Trafford the same amount as our fans have been charged for the away fixture.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust (M.U.S.T) praised the club.

"Our primary objective was to ensure our fans didn't end up paying this much".
