You’d expect that, not just because they are Premier League champions, but because Manchester City dominated the top-flight in the manner they did last season, their Manchester City football tickets would be unaffordable for most football fans… right?
That’s nowhere near the case though.
The 2018-19 campaign is well underway and Man City already see themselves at the top-flight summit once again ahead of Liverpool on goal difference and are still unbeaten from the 10 games played.
It’s going to be very interesting indeed to see how Man City fare after most of the clubs around them have strengthened, most notably Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool, and both Arsenal and Chelsea have new faces in charge in the form of Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri respectively.
Single football tickets, season tickets, memberships and hospitality – all the usual options – are available to buy at the Cityzens either through the club or on secondary ticketing websites but act quick! Demand for football tickets at the club is always high and it’s likely you’ll have to fight for them.
‘The Centurions’, one of the most successful Premier League sides in recent history, offer season tickets for just £299 which is a phenomenal price for any top-flight club, never mind watching some of the most beautiful football orchestrated to date.
City’s single football tickets range from £35 to £58, much lower than at London clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea for adult admission whilst away football tickets are capped at £30 like all the other 19 teams in the top-flight following the implementation of the rule back in 2016.
Man City’s top four rivals Liverpool charge as low as £9 for adult single tickets, emphasising how expensive tickets actually are – but many would argue it is in fact worth it.
Even though City’s prices are very respectable considering the quality of football being played under Pep Guardiola and the quality of the facilities at the Etihad Stadium ever since the Commonwealth Games what the stadium was built for, prices overseas are still lower.
Barcelona (£172.23) and Real Madrid (@177), the two biggest clubs in the world, clearly kept their fans in mind when deciding to charge less than £200 to see the likes of Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale in action at two of the most iconic football stadia ever, the Santiago Bernabeu and Nou Camp.
When seeing a club charging £67 for a season ticket and £12 for a single football ticket you would think it’d be a lower league English side and not giants of the game Bayern Munich, who boast stars like Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer.
Even if you were to take this into consideration as well as the fact that you could buy a season ticket at Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus for the same price as the dearest season ticket at City, the club’s consistent recent success probably does make the cost worth it.
Will Manchester City dominate as much as last season? Only time will tell but they’ve made a hell of a good start.
