Arsenal are introducing £10 teenager tickets for the start of next season

It is reported that there will be around 800 to 1,000 tickets available for this sector of fans, but they will not count towards category A games, these games are when Arsenal face the likes of; Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham.

Despite only have around 800 to 1,000 tickets made available for the teenagers, it means the club will lose nearly £400,000 each season, but they are prepared to take that hit as they look to bring in a new generation of supporters.

The plan to bring in cheaper tickets for younger supporters was suggested by an Arsenal supporters trust and they spoke to club officials about the idea and the motion was passed off and agreed to for the start of next season.

The Gunners have come under a lot of scrutiny about their ticket prices since they were made public knowledge back in October of last year as they are the highest prices in the Premier League with a game against Chelsea costing fans nearly £100.

When Arsenal hosted Manchester City at the Emirates, nearly 1,000 tickets were returned by away supporters simply because they couldn't afford the prices.

It was just last year that Arsenal announced a new ticketing structure that saw tickets go into three categories. Category A (prices start at £62), category B (£35.50) and category C (£25.00), but now it seems they want to appeal to a much younger generation by introducing this new scheme.
