Man Utd ticket prices go up as fans slam ‘parasite’ Glazers and demand reduction
Manchester United fans have fumed on social media after their ticket prices went up for the first time in 11 years.
The Red Devils cited the "escalating cost of matchday delivery," claiming it is "necessary to allow the club to operate on a sustainable basis" for the rise in season ticket prices. They added: "We understand that our fans are also facing pressure from increased living costs.
"And that is why we have kept price increases well below the current rate of inflation." However, it hasn't stopped angry United fans from taking to social media to fume at the club – with one even labelling them "parasites".

One fan fumed: "Am I shocked that the first season in a long time the Glazers haven't taken a dividend and all of a sudden "costs" have increased."
"Increasingly of the view that these d***heads have no intention of selling," a second added of the Glazers. While a third tweeted: "Understand an increase after 11 years. But the timing is strange when it could very well be a new owner when it comes into effect!"
And a fourth said: "This is appalling from a club who's players earn millions & have a full ground every week when there's a cost of living crisis on, club could reduce ticket prices and still bring good money in!"

The Glazer family had explored potentially selling the Red Devils, with bids confirmed from Qatar and Britain's richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe.
However, ESPN are reporting that American hedge fund Elliott Management have expressed interest in pumping funds into United, which could see the Glazers remain in charge.
