Arsenal has frozen season ticket prices for next season despite not qualifying for Europe
leaving fans fuming, The Gunners are not playing in any European competition in
2020-21 and season ticket holders are guaranteed fewer games than they were during
the last campaign as a result.
Arsenal – who were one of the teams involved in the breakaway European Super League –
said they would freeze ticket prices for next season.
And although they have kept that promise, eagle-eyed fans have noticed the commitment
is not quite as good as it sounds.
The Gunners finished eighth last season – missing out on European football on the last
day as bitter rivals Tottenham pipped them to seventh.
And although prices remain the same, eagle-eyed fans have spotted a problem.
Fans of the North Londoners were guaranteed 26 games last season which included some Europa League games.
Mikel Arteta eventually crashed out the competition to eventual winners Villareal – who
are managed by former Gunners boss Unai Emery – in the semi-final.
And that – combined with their final Premier League position – means supporters will
only get 21 games included with their tickets next season.
The package includes 19 Prem games and two FA Cup ties
@Arsenal are having a laugh. What a time to further screw the season ticket holders.
Not only do we have to pay the same ‘frozen’ top rate over other teams but now it’s only 2 fa cup games down from 7 #seasonticketrenewal

Even if the prices remain frozen for another 10yrs they’ll still be the most expensive in the World. And for what exactly? Kroenke knows you guys are stupid enough to keep paying these sick prices. Until Arsenal fans boycott season tickets en masse there will be no change ever🤮 https://t.co/SbJ1WyUwLU

With no European football next season, how is it acceptable for Arsenal to freeze the season ticket prices? With only 21 games guaranteed for season ticket holders (rather than 26), surely the price must be reduced? #Arsecastextra
