Manchester United have confirmed that season ticket prices at Old Trafford have been frozen for the fourth consecutive season, despite the club’s massive investment on improving the current squad during 2014.
The Red Devils were expected to increase prices for season tickets following a host of big-name arrivals, including the likes of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao.
But despite that - and the fact United are on course to qualify for the Champions League next season - the Premier League giants have decided that fans currently pay enough to watch their team in action on a fortnightly basis.
United's fair prices
According to information obtained by the Daily Mail, Manchester United fans aged between 21 and 64 can secure a season ticket at Old Trafford for as little as £532.
The most expensive season tickets, meanwhile, are currently priced at a cool £950. But this still pales in comparison to some of the prices their Premier League rivals charge supporters.
Arsenal the most expensive
The most expensive season tickets at Arsenal, for example, set fans back a massive £2013 - more than double the price of United’s top-end annual ticket.
Both Chelsea and Tottenham also charge in excess of £1000 for their most expensive season tickets.
Incidentally, Premier League champions Manchester City sell the cheapest adult season tickets in England’s top division at just £299.
Manchester United spent close to £150 million last summer on new signings to herald the arrival of veteran Dutch coach Louis van Gaal, who replaced David Moyes in the summer.
Currently third in the Premier League table at the halfway stage in the season - nine points behind joint league-leaders Chelsea and Manchester City - the Red Devils stand an excellent chance of returning to the Champions League following a one-season absence.
Champions League - and the future
Getting back into Europe’s lucrative elite club competition was Van Gaal’s main objective. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss in the process of making his mark on this current Manchester United side, although he told reporters after last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Tottenham that the Red Devils will become a true ‘Louis van Gaal side’ during the 2015-16 campaign and not before.
United fans are excited about the future under their charismatic manager - and they will not need to pay any extra for the privilege of watching the club’s big-name stars in action next season.
