Manchester United Football Club has followed Arsenal in increasing ticket prices for next season to cover the 2.5% increase in VAT.
Fans purchasing a season ticket for next season at Old Trafford will pay an additional £1 per game with junior and senior tickets remaining at prices set for the 2006/07 campaign.
"The rise in prices for next season covers the increased cost of VAT we have to pay to the government," said chief executive David Gill.
"We have maintained a good range of prices for supporters, which we believe offer excellent value for money."
Arsenal recently announced a 6.5% increase in ticket costs which drew criticism from the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust which said it was ‘very disappointed’ with the decision.
The Red Devils have also introduced a new 16-17 year old ticket band which Gill said came from the Fans’ Forum.
"The new 16 to 17-year-old pay band is a vindication of the Fans' Forum as a way of providing valuable feedback from match-going fans. The board is sure this will prove a popular way for young adults to continue their support for the team," Gill added.
