Man U offer cheap youth tickets to boost atmosphere

Manchester United is set to introduce cheaper tickets for its young fans as part of an initiative to improve the Old Trafford atmosphere.

For supporters aged 18-25-years-old, pitchside seats in the lower Stretford End will be available for £15, while season and match prices have been frozen for a seventh consecutive season.

During this campaign, manager Jose Mourinho complained about the lacklustre atmosphere throughout Old Trafford, and the Premier League club is trying new ways to improve it.

A survey of fans could be put forward, while other suggestions by supporter representatives was the handing out of song-sheets.
United’s group managing director Richard Arnold told the club website: “The club enjoys unparalleled support and we recognise the sacrifice many fans make to watch the team home and away.
“Continuing the freeze in match and season tickets for next season is driven by our belief in supporting fans attending our games.
“The introduction of reduced ticket prices for young adults in the Stretford End lower tier stems from suggestions generated by fan groups through our fans’ forum, aimed at building on the tradition of vibrant support.”
