Reports: MCFC To Reduce Season Tickets By 20%

Reports: MCFC To Reduce Season Tickets By 20%

Google language translator

In a move that will have the Anti-City campaigners in 'Fleet Street' seething, Sheikh Mancity is reported to be preparing a 20% reduction in City season ticket prices...

Vital Manchester City can confirm that the rumour has been swirling around SportCity for weeks and is starting to make it's way into the media, many of whom's hacks we can be sure will fail to fanfare it...because of course, His Highness Sheikh Mansour is out to 'ruin football.' To their credit, The Sun have published the story today.

What a hammer blow this will be for all the pontificators around football we've been putting up with on a daily basis since City dared to attempt to bring Kaka to The Premier League.

City Chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak, who has promised to ensure that Sheikh Mansour's commitment to building bridges with Manchester City supporters and the Manchester Community is carried out, continues to hold out olive branches to City supporters groups and is known to be a good listener.

The City of Manchester Stadium remains one of the cheapest places to watch Premier League football. Last night kid's got in to watch City v Newcastle for a fiver.

Should the club confirm the plans publicly we can expect the City Feel Good Factor which is reasserting itself under a new found siege mentality to go into orbit.

If it is going to happen I am sure it will be announced very soon as the renewal process is usually announced in February. Can't wait to see the reaction of the hacks !!!

Looking forward to Lawrenson, Robson, Bruce, Whelan, Wenger, Taggart, Taylor, Shearer etc all declaring their support for this initiative.

If they reduce the season ticket prices we'll really struggle to pay off our massive debt!!! Oh I forgot, we don't have any debt.

Where are all those Arsenal fans and the like who were on here bemoaning the Man City induced "death of football" last week?

I honest believe if our tickets were more reasonable we wouldn't have a such a problem selling the empty 5000 seats virtually every home game. It's no surprise to me that the empty sections are always in the Top Tiers of the CB and The East Stands.. ie. the most expensive at around £36 a pop! Too much for your average working class Mancunian that can just as easily watch the game in a pub on some foreign channel. I think all the Premiership clubs should think about reducing the prices as they hardly need the revenue from gate receipts when they receive so much TV money these days.

One of the prongs of the ADUG takeover was the marketing potential, what better way to go about marketing than to get more fans in.

can only be good for City if it is true...!!
