United hits back at Sevilla with ticket price hike
Manchester United to charge Sevilla fans EXTRA £35 for Champions League clash... and use money to help their fans afford trip to Spain after La Liga club hike prices up to £89

Manchester United have made a decision to charge Sevilla fans an extortionate £89 for their Champions League last 16 clash at Old Trafford in March... but only after their Liga opponents inflicted the same price hike for the first leg in Spain.
Sevilla is charging United fans between 89 and 133 pounds (US$120 to US$179) to watch the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on February 21, which United considered excessive.
Manchester United took the decision after Sevilla refused to lower the price despite numerous requests.
The club will then use the €40 difference per ticket they stand to earn to subsidise their own fans travelling down to Sevilla for the return.
Manchester United have offered to subsidise supporters travelling to next month's Champions League tie at Sevilla after being charged over the odds by the Spanish club.
Whereas Liverpool met Sevilla in the group stage of this season's Champions League and their travelling support were charged £54 each for a match ticket, the visiting Man United supporters are being asked to fork out £89 each.
"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.
The Red Devils hit back in the bust-up and chose to charge Sevilla fans travelling to Old Trafford the same amount for the return clash at Old Trafford in March.
"We have chose 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 supporters".
The two clubs have been engaged in a price war over tickets.
Sevilla are charging United supporters £89 for a ticket in the uncovered away end at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
"Further to our recent confirmation that you were successful for the Sevilla away game, we wanted to inform you of a change in what you will be charged for this game". The club will refund each fan £35, effectively bringing the cost down to the £54 paid by Liverpool fans, while any additional revenue generated will go to charity.
United said they had felt it was only fair to charge their opponents fans a similar amount.
