United to raise ticket prices
Manchester - Most ticket prices for Manchester United's home games will go up by one pound next season.
The club said on Wednesday that the most expensive tickets for a Premier League match at Old Trafford next season will be £50, while the cheapest seats will sell for £28 - compared to £49 and 27 this campaign.
That's an increase of 3.7 percent for the cheapest tickets, which United pointed out is still lower than the 6.5-percent hike announced by Arsenal.
But United fans had urged the owning Glazer family to cut ticket prices during tough economic times as they have done at the stadium for their NFL team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
United said the increase is because of the hike in Britain's so-called value added tax, which was lifted from 17.5 percent to 20 percent on Jan. 4.
