BREAKING NEWS: Premier League leaders Arsenal INCREASE their season-ticket prices by 5% – and CUT the number of games it includes from 26 to 22 – as club reveal they’ve blocked 100,000 bots from buying seats
Arsenal are increasing the price of their season ticket by five per cent next season – and it will include four games fewer than 2022-23.
Gunners season ticket holders currently pay up front for 26 home games each season.
Those include 19 in the Premier League as well as two home matches in the FA Cup and five home matches in European competition.
A rebate is given if the club fails to meet these requirements – but they have now shifted plans for 2023-24 following consultation with fans.
Next season season tickets will include all 19 home league games, with three additional European matches.
A club statement read: ‘The move follows ongoing feedback from season ticket holders who want more flexibility around attending matches and to support our desire to make more tickets available to our growing membership base.
‘Removing the four cup credits from the season ticket will also make up to 150,000 additional match tickets available for members to purchase next season.’
While the number of required games is going down, prices are going up, by five per cent for a general admission season ticket.
In the lower tier season ticket prices are rising by six per cent and four per cent in the upper tier.
Arsenal, who look guaranteed to return to the Champions League as they sit top of the Premier League table at this moment, have told fans that next season they are looking at a £113 reduction compared to had they been in the competition this season.
‘If we qualify for the Europa League next season, it will leave full-price adult season ticket holders paying on average £76 less than they are currently paying this season,’ it adds.
