Arsenal have announced a freeze on ticket prices for the 2015/16 season.
In a statement on the official website, Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis said, “We have fantastic support with all our home games selling out week after week, year after year.
“The Arsenal board, as always, works to strike a balance between the expense of coming to games for our supporters and the club’s ever-increasing costs and expenditure as it develops on and off the pitch.”
The freeze, while obviously welcome, comes after a 3% increase last year which was unjustifiable. With a whopping new TV deal in place, plus increased sponsorship revenue from Emirates and Puma, the club saw fit to raise prices despite widespread opposition from fans groups and fans alike.
Now we await the news that Ticket Price Freeze has picked up a knock in training and is out for three months.
