Fulham Supporters’ Trust slam club over ticket prices for Man United fixture

Fulham supporters trust slam club over ticket prices for Man United fixture

Fulham Supporters’ Trust (FST) has released a statement criticising the club over ticket prices for their upcoming fixture against Manchester United at Craven Cottage.

The Cottagers had announced that it would cost an adult supporter at least £150 to sit in the Riverside Stand against Man United on November 4.

Prices also range from £77 to £106 for the Putney and Johnny Haynes Stands, with the exception of the £35 tickets reserved for the family zone.

The new prices account for a large 18% increase since last year, with FST concerned that the supporters are being priced out of attending games.

They have called on the club to review their matchday ticket prices, which has emerged as a prominent issue, especially across clubs in the capital.

“The Trust is extremely disappointed with the ticket prices released for the Manchester United game on November 4,” the statement read.

“The prices for the Riverside Stand are the highest we have ever seen for individual match day sales and are likely to be financially out of reach for many of those who hold club membership. 

“Adult prices around the rest of the ground have increased approximately 18% since last year, which is similar to the increase in season ticket prices for this season. 

“We continue to have concerns that club members, including concessions, are being priced out of attending games.

FST also asked the club to address the issue of non-Fulham fans who flock towards the home supporters’ area during fixtures against Man United.

They have urged the club to address the problem to enable supporters to enjoy their matchday experience, especially in light of the recent hike in ticket prices.

“We are also aware that the Manchester United fixture is notorious for non-Fulham supporting fans finding their way into home supporter areas,” FST added. 

“We hope the club, in increasing prices as they are, will be making every effort to ensure that this does not happen and that any non-Fulham supporting fans subsequently identified in home areas are removed and prevented from buying tickets in the future. 

“This would ensure that, in paying higher prices, Fulham fans at least enjoy a good matchday experience.”

Fulham have collected eight points from six Premier League games this season and are next in action against Championship side Norwich City in the League Cup third round.
