United launch season ticket sales for 2023/24
Manchester United today launched its season ticket sales process for the 2023/24 campaign.
Following 11 consecutive seasons of frozen ticket pricing, due to the escalating cost of matchday delivery, the price of adult Season Tickets will increase this year by five per cent per match, rounded to the nearest pound. Executive Club Members will also see an average price rise of five per cent next season.
Ticket prices at Old Trafford – along with matchday food and beverage prices – will remain among the most affordable in the Premier League and we are committed to continuing that approach.
However, with the cost of delivering matches up by 40 per cent in the past five years, and 11 per cent in the past 12 months alone, the modest increase in price for the 2023/24 season is necessary to allow the club to operate on a sustainable basis.
We understand that our fans are also facing pressure from increased living costs and that is why we have kept price increases well below the current rate of inflation.
The deadline to renew for existing Season Ticket Holders and Executive Club Members is 18:00 BST on 5 May 2023.
SEASON TICKET POLICY CHANGES
Following a successful trial this season, which has halved the number of tickets not being used, the minimum ticket usage for Premier League matches will be increased to 75 per cent next season.
Season Ticket Holders are reminded that forwarding a ticket to an Official Member, using the buy-back scheme, or donating the cost of your ticket to the Manchester United Foundation counts towards usage.
The donated cost of a ticket to the Manchester United Foundation raises vital funds to support their work with young people across Greater Manchester and it is estimated that more than £500,000 will be raised through this option by the end of the current season.
DISCOUNT FOR YOUNGER AND OLDER SUPPORTERS
In response to fan feedback and in support of our younger Reds, we are pleased to continue to freeze the costs for Under-16 and Youth Season Tickets in dedicated family areas. Prices for U16s tickets will remain at £10 per game in these areas and all Under-16s will retain the 50 per cent discount across the stadium.
We have also retained the 50 per cent discount for current Over-65 Season Ticket Holders and fans moving into this category over the course of next season will receive a 25 per cent discount in all areas of the ground.
In addition, Over-65 Season Ticket Holders will no longer need to personally use their ticket for 50 per cent of home Premier League games.
Throughout this season we have continued to work closely with our Fans’ Advisory Board and Fans’ Forum to listen to supporters and place their views at the heart of our ticketing decision-making process.
At the start of the campaign, the club announced the removal of the automatic cup scheme to offer more flexibility, choice and affordability. In recent weeks we have revised our away ticket returns policy following survey results from Season Ticket Holders which were implemented with immediate effect.
In January, we announced the removal of executive seats from the Stretford End for the 2024/25 season, providing more general admission availability in the heart of the famous stand.
The views of fans on all policies related to matchday experience and services will continue to be a key objective of the club next season and beyond.
The Season Ticket renewal process will begin in the coming days with supporters receiving a personalised email explaining any relevant changes and what it means for them.
