Manchester City have taken the step of halving ticket prices for the coming game against Arsenal for season ticket holders.

The announcement of the move from the club carries the line.

‘To celebrate the start of the 14/15 season the club are offering seasoncard holders half price tickets when City travel to Arsenal on Saturday September 13, kick off 12.45pm.’

It goes on to say that the club have specifically selected this match because they are sure it will be memorable and it’s a way of thanking fans for their continued support.

Therefore prices are reduced as follows for season ticket holders attending the game at the Emirates.

£64.00 – Adults (£32.00 Seasoncard holders)
£27.25 – Over 65s (£13.62 Seasoncard holders)
£24.00 – Under 16s (£12.00 Seasoncard holders)
£32.00 – Wheelchair / Walking Ambulant plus free carer (£16.00 Seasoncard holders)

The press, such as the Daily Mail, haven’t been so diplomatic in their coverage as obviously Arsenal will still receive the full ticket price of the tickets you would presume.

‘The move follows continued protests by the Football Supporters’ Federation against the rising cost of watching live Premier League Football. In January 2013, City fans protested inside Arsenal’s ground after being charged £62 for match day tickets. A total of 900 tickets were returned to Arsenal before the game as supporters boycotted the expensive prices while fans raised a banner inside the stadium asking ‘£62!! Where will it stop?’.’

It doesn’t stop clearly as it’s a two pound increase for this season.
