Arsenal have announced they will be freezing ticket prices for home games for the 2013/14 season.
The club have been criticised by their own supporters for the cost of a ticket to watch them play – including last November, when a group of fans wrote to the club to vent their frustrations.
Fans of teams travelling to the Emirates Stadium have also been left unhappy – with almost a third of tickets being returned by Manchester City for their clash on 13 January after their supporters opted against paying the cost, and Arsenal have now decided to freeze the ticket prices.
A statement from the club said: “Arsenal Football Club has announced it will not be making any ticket price increases next season.
“The move follows a full review by the Arsenal board which included an assessment of the current economic environment and feedback from fans’ groups.
“The price freeze means Arsenal will have made only two across the board inflation-linked price increases in the eight years since it has been at Emirates Stadium.
“This season the club introduced new pricing categories which created 90,000 cheaper tickets at £25 as part of its drive to provide more tickets at affordable prices. In addition it continued the policy of offering prices at £10 for adults and £5 for children for home Capital One Cup ties.
“The price freeze applies to all match ticket prices including season tickets in both General Admission and Club Level. Club Level season ticket renewals will begin on February 12.”
