Manchester United hit back at Sevilla as ticket row continues

That will mean their fans have paid the same amount as Liverpool’s supporters paid in Spain

"The £35 difference will be refunded prior to the game".

Liverpool fans were charged £54 to watch their side face Sevilla in the Champions League Group Stage earlier this season and, by refunding £35, United supporters will now pay the same figure.

"Therefore we have taken the hard decision to charge Sevilla fans for the return leg at Old Trafford the same amount as our fans have been charged for the away fixture".

United will refund each fan £35, taken from the £89 they are have made a decision to charge the Sevilla fans who come to the return leg in Manchester on 13 March after the Spanish club refused to budge over their prices for the February 21 clash.

Ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price to what we view as a reasonable level.

Not only have United responded by subsidising supporters the €40 difference, they have also increased the price for visiting fans at March's return leg at Old Trafford to €101 as well.

Rain and snow in the forecast
Snow and freezing rain transition to all rain by Thursday afternoon with rain continuing Thursday evening through Friday . The forecasters are unanimous in predicting the temperature will plummet to 19 degrees overnight on Saturday .

Sevilla were heavily criticised in December when it was revealed that United supporters travelling to the first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on 21 February would be forced to pay between £89 and £133 for a ticket in the away end.

UEFA rules stipulate that at least five per cent of a stadium capacity's should be available to visiting supporters, yet Sevilla claim United have not offered them 3,800 tickets for security reasons.

But Sevilla have reacted angrily to United's move, and instead of agreeing to reduce prices for travelling fans from England they have now said they will subsidise costs for their own supporters going to Old Trafford for the second leg.

"As a result of the changes to ticket prices for away fans, should we gain any additional revenue after having refunded our supporters, we will donate this to the Manchester United Foundation".

In response the English club have announced that they intend to charge Sevilla's travelling contingent £89 a ticket for the return fixture, matching the figure most United were expected to hand over.

A club source told Reuters: "Right now everything is hypothetical as United have not informed the club officially of the price rise. We are delighted United have fought our corner on this issue".
