Arsenal have released next season's ticket pricing scheme on their official website, and there is welcome news for most supporters: there will be no rate hike:
Arsenal Football Club has announced a price freeze on General Admission season-ticket renewals for next season.
The move means 35,000 existing Gold Level season-ticket holders will see no price increase in watching games at Emirates Stadium for the forthcoming campaign.
Arsenal season tickets include 26 matches consisting of 19 Barclays Premier League home matches plus seven cup games from European competitions and the FA Cup.
Mmm. Tasty. More after the jump.
After the various protests that sprung up this season surrounding the issues of ticket pricing and the mild PR storm the club wandered into, this is a good call from most conceivable angles. Supporters who say the team on the pitch has done little to justify a rate hike will be satisfied; ordinary fans who are feeling the pinch still from our times will be satisfied, and people who think the club's front office is tone deaf to the ordinary supporter should be satisfied.
Club level tickets will see a small hike, according to the article, and general admission tickets are as yet undetermined.
In unrelated, totally fake, made-up, parodical news that is not real in any way: sausage rolls at next year's matches will be 35 pounds each. Pies are 40. DEAL WITH IT. (NB: this is totally fake. This is not real).
