Champions League: Sevilla, Manchester United on warpath
11 January 2018, 09:26 | Pamela Mathis
Manchester United have decided to charge Sevilla fans £89 for their Champions League clash
Tensions between the two clubs rose on Wednesday when United revealed in an email to supporters that they were to increase the price of tickets for Sevilla fans by £35 to £89 for their Champions League round-of-16 second leg at Old Trafford in March.
"We want this to act as a deterrant to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling supporters", the United letter continued.
"We have made a decision to increase the ticket prices for Sevilla fans for the game at Old Trafford, and use this increase to subsidise our fans, as we want this to act as a deterrent to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling fans", read a United email sent to fans.
United will also reimburse their supporters to the tune of £35, the difference between Sevilla's £89 ticket charge and the £54 paid by Liverpool supporters.
Sevilla are charging Manchester United fans between 89 and 133 pounds ($120 to $179) to watch the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on February 21, which the English club considered excessive.
"We have been working with the club since we became aware of the ridiculous £89 Sevilla (away) ticket price", they said in a statement on Twitter.
Harvey Weinstein Video Shows Restaurant Attack
Steve, who admitted to the gossip site that he'd had "quite a bit to drink", marched up to Weinstein and slapped him twice. TMZ said the person shooting asked if Weinstein wanted to call the police, though this does not appear on the video .
Sevilla responded in a similar fashion and will subsidise tickets of club members to bring costs back in line with United's initial demands, though the Andalusians are angry they have only been given a 4.1 per cent allocation, rather than their entitled five per cent.
A club source told Reuters: "Right now everything is hypothetical as United have not informed the club officially of the price rise".
UEFA Champions League rules dictate that home sides make 5 percent of the seats available to visiting supporters.
"Our primary objective was to ensure our fans didn't end up paying this much".
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.
But maybe United's tactic will work and eventually lead to Sevilla dropping the price for away supporters visiting their Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium next month. "We are delighted United have fought our corner on this issue".
