Manchester United agree to scrap changes to season ticket renewal policy after discussion with fans – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United had recently announced that they would be making changes to the amount of games fans would need to attend in order to renew their season ticket at Old Trafford.

The 17/19 proposal required fans to attend 17 out of the 19 home league games to then qualify for a renewal the following season.

The previous bar was set at 14 games and a three match jump might have proved too much for some match-going Reds.

Options were available to send tickets back to the club that would then be marked as “used” but fans were not happy with the new policy.

Now, as confirmed by the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST), the club have agreed to lower the attendance stipulation.

After positive discussions, season ticket holders will now only have to to attend 15 matches next season in order to keep their seat for the following campaign.

Additionally, MUST confirmed “further increases from 15 to 16 and 17 will only take place with close analysis of the data to prove the policy is working, and in consultation with the Fans Forum.”

Furthermore, “the minimum usage will never rise by more than one game per season, and is capped at a maximum of 17 and for games which have not sold out and where buy-back from the club is disabled (such as Sheffield United last night), you will be allowed to forward your ticket to non-members as well as members,” explained the Trust.

The news will be seen as a huge result for match-going fans who are often the last to be considered when it comes to changes in policies or schedules.

United have just three games remaining at Old Trafford this season, starting with Burnley’s visit to Manchester tomorrow (Saturday).

Then comes two interesting looking fixtures against Newcastle and Arsenal respectively, which will play a huge part in where United finish in what has been a wretched league campaign for Erik ten Hag and his troops.

United currently sit in sixth position in the Premier League and are fighting to qualify for next season’s Europa League.
