Arsenal blasted by fans for ticket prices

Arsenal have come under fire over sky-high ticket prices for their Champions League last-16 first-leg clash with Bayern Munich.

CrossCriticism of well-worked Giroud is unfair

Despite Gunners season tickets already costing up to 2,000 pounds, holders will have to pay between 62 pounds and 132 pounds to see Wednesday’s game at the Emirates Stadium.

In stark contrast, Bayern fans will receive 24.80 pounds from the Bundesliga club towards the cost of their 60 pound tickets for the match.

"We are very concerned. Season-ticket holders have already paid up to 2,000 pounds in advance -- the highest in world football. Their commitment deserves better," Arsenal Supporters' Trust spokesman Tim Payton said.

"Arsenal's grasping approach will have a detrimental effect on the noise in the ground, harming the team's chances for an important game.

"Ivan Gazidis [Arsenal's chief executive] promised that when commercial revenues rose it would reduce ticket price increases. To date, those are just empty words."
