City fans were disappointed as the price of a seat ticket went up to £60 at the Champion League Quarter final against Paris St Germain.The Blues hierarchy received huge criticism from the fans and the rumors were that a leading fan club was planning on a walk-out in protest against the prices.

 

The fans have now decided AGAINST the walkout. Still, they are of the view that by increasing the prices management is jeopardizing a packed crowd. The stadium was expanded recently and the price has also increased so there might be some empty seats in such a crucial game.

Club management says that the prices are justified as it is a ‘high profile game’.

Some fans too have said that prices are absolutely okay. So there is a split amongst the blues. A fan group called 1894 group said that a walk-out would split the crowds so it was not a good idea. To express their displeasure they would rather use banners and display cards against the prices.

“If the club doesn’t listen to the fans and prices continue to rise, then we see a time where a majority of fans will accept and support a walk out.

“Some fans will walk out anyway at the West Brom game.

“We support their right to choose to want to walk out.

“It’s entirely up to individuals how they want to deal with this situation.”

And they said the club had to wake up to the fans’ discontent.

“The feedback we are getting is consistent” they added.

“The PSG pricing structure was a last straw for many fans on top of the other issues.

“What we are sure about is that there is huge concern about where ticket prices are going.

“Not only can that affect the atmosphere at home games, but there is huge concern over where this would end.

Would we see £70/£80 tickets for a semi-final? Would we see further rises for season tickets next year?

“If the club doesn’t listen some fans will walk away from the club regardless of who the manager is and regardless of who we sign.”
