Default All we've done is redefine what a season is, away from purely a League season, to be a whole season

The United spokesman added: "We've a waiting list of 14,000 for season tickets and we regularly turned 5,000 people away for Premiership games last season."

translated as 'we couldn't give a toss'....

f***ers - with games not selling out it's not like fans will be able to recoup money on viagogo anyway..

  • At a loss to the seller
  • An extra cost for the buyer
  • A nice little earner for via-tout-tout and Glazer

They'll keep pounding away at the core base until the real revenue earners fill the seats and even then they'll keep going until the gaps appear.

I expect 10%+ increases every year until the limits are reached. 'Real' fans will have long since given up by the of course.

Except the price still only covers league games, and cup games are extra. So it's still exactly the f***ing same. PR shite.

If thats the case then its an absolute joke.

Having never used viagogo, please pardon my ignorance on the issue I dont know the ins and outs, but if its just a legal way of touting i'm honestly schocked that they have the stones to do this. The press would surely be interested in this?
