Manchester United have raised ticket prices for Sevilla fans in Champions League

Man Utd have responded to the Sevilla ticket scandal in the perfect way

Sevilla is set to report Manchester United to European football governing body UEFA for not offering their fans enough tickets for the UEFA Champions League last 16 second leg match at Old Trafford.

Sevilla were heavily criticised in December when it was revealed that United supporters travelling to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on 21 February would be forced to pay between £89 (€100) and £133 (€150) for a ticket in the away end.

United contacted supporters who had been allocated tickets via a ballot earlier this month to say the club were engaged in discussions with Sevilla in a bid to reduce ticket prices.

UNITED and Sevilla have broken out in commercial war after hiking the ticket prices for visiting fans.

UEFA rules stipulate that at least 5% of a stadium capacity's should be available to visiting supporters, yet Sevilla claim United have not offered them the appropriate 3,800 match tickets.

The Red Devils hit back in the bust-up and made a decision to charge Sevilla fans travelling to Old Trafford the same amount for the return clash at Old Trafford in March.

'We will subsidise our travelling support by refunding the difference between the price charged (£89) and the price that was paid by Liverpool supporters in the Group Stage of this year's competition (£54).

In an email to supporters who have been successful in acquiring tickets for the game, the club said: "In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are unfairly being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club".

In response the English club have announced that they intend to charge Sevilla's travelling contingent £89 a ticket for the return fixture, matching the figure most United were expected to hand over.

The move comes after extensive talks between both clubs failed to see them reach a compromise or bring ticket prices down.

A refund of £35 will then be passed down to their own supporters for the trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

"Sevilla will also look to guarantee that no Sevillista pays a penny more than any Manchester United fan for similar tickets - as competition regulations dictate".
