English Premier League club Manchester United is reportedly set to increase the price of season tickets by an additional 5% for the 2024-25 season.

According to a report from The Athletic, current season ticket-holders were sent an email that said United had increased prices to ensure “the club operates on a sustainable basis and to support investment in the team and stadium”.

The email added that the increase was also due to the continued inflation of matchday operating costs at the 74,000-capacity Old Trafford. 

United raised season ticket prices ahead of the current campaign for the first time in more than a decade. 

The Athletic added that the club will be upgrading its digital ticketing system for 2024-25 to improve security and reduce ticket touting. 

Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s Ineos Group completed its acquisition of a 25% stake in Manchester United at the end of last year. Following the move, United’s stadium masterplan partners, Populous, backed the idea of possibly constructing a new arena at the existing Old Trafford site. 

Ratcliffe pledged an initial £237m (€278/$300) towards Old Trafford’s infrastructure, which requires some attention.

A team led by Populous and Legends International was originally appointed in April 2022 to create a masterplan on the redevelopment of the stadium.
