United Acknowledge Ticket Sales ‘In Freefall’

A month back I wrote an article for the Transfer Tavern about Manchester United (the world’s biggest club) failing to sell all their season tickets. The general gist of it was David Gill telling everyone that it wasn’t a worry and the club was in good financial condition in true spin doctor fashion. Here is an email a United fan recently received….

Dear Supporter

The 2010/11 season is well and truly underway and the Theatre of Dreams has already seen some great football with plenty of goals and moments to remember. We have just released some fantastic seats in the South Stand at pro-rata prices and we also have limited numbers of seats available in alternative areas within the stadium. Don’t miss this opportunity to secure your own seat for the remainder of the season and support the Reds in their campaign to reclaim the Barclays Premier League.

All Season Tickets sold over the next 2 weeks will be effective from (and including) our home game vs.Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 30 October. Please see below for a list of areas where we have seats available, complete with re-calculated prices. Don’t forget that we have Season Tickets available for juniors in North Stand tier 3 for just £150.

New pro-rata (adult) prices as follows :

North Stand Tier 3 – £495.00 (Over 65s – £247.50) (Juniors – £150.00)

East Stand Tier 2 – £540.00 (Over 65s – £270)

North East / North West Quad T1 – £555.00 (Over 65s – £277.50)

North East / North West Quad T2 – £615.00 (Over 65s – £300)

South Stand Lower – £645.00 (Over 65s – £300)

North / South Wings – £690.00 (Over 65s – £300)

North/ South Stands Centre – £735.00 (Over 65s – £300)

If you’re interested in purchasing a Season Ticket, call 0161 868 8000 from 8am to 8pm weekdays, or 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

There used to be a waiting list at for a Manchester United season ticket a mile long, now they’re having to advertise them. Manchester United having to advertise season tickets?!

I also know that the club has been contacting their local schools offering them £90+ packages for their pupils to go to a Champions League game (Bursaspor I would imagine).

David Gill has previously said: “It’s pretty good (the amount of season ticket’s sold) in the current climate and the club is in good financial shape.”

Just stop with the bullshit please.
