Manchester City is delighted to announce a 2008/09 price freeze for our fans of the future.
The Blues have today confirmed that our innovative £95 Seasoncard for Under 16s will continue next season. More than 5,000 youngsters have taken advantage of the £5-a-game Seasoncard this campaign.
This contributed to our home game with Liverpool entering the Club record books when nearly 7,500 Under 16s attended the clash with Rafa Benitez’s men.
However after five seasons at the City of Manchester Stadium where supporters have enjoyed a price freeze, there will be for 2008/09 Adult Seasoncard holders a price increase of £2 per game for those who renew before the March 9 deadline.
Nice to see the junior prices frozen once again, but it was inevitable after this season that prices would increase somewhere along the line.
Whereas the price freezes from the past two seasons were against the backdrop of a struggling team and some poor stuff on the pitch - this season there is new ownership, a more expensive squad to maintain and by and large success and decent football on the pitch so it was a move that was expected.
The increase I guess is fairly minimal, and looking at attendances this season is not something that I would expect to put too many off from renewing.
