Arsenal to subsidise fan tickets for Europa League trip to Atletico Madrid

Arsenal to subsidise match tickets for Atleti trip
Arsenal announce that they will subsidise their fans' tickets for their Europa League semi-final second leg away at Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal have announced that they will subsidise supporters' tickets for the club's Europa League semi-final second leg away at Atletico Madrid.

The Spanish club had planned to charge visiting fans £79 for their tickets at the Wanda Metropolitano next month, which yielded criticism from the Gunners faithful.

Arsenal, however, have put out a statement stressing that their fans will pay no more for their tickets than Atletico's supporters will pay for the first leg in London.

Tickets for the away match on May 3 had been priced at £79 by Atletico compared to the £36.50 Spanish fans would pay for the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

"We know our match in Madrid is already shaping up to be an expensive one for our supporters with the early May Bank Holiday increasing travel costs," supporters' liaison officer Mark Brindle wrote.

"On top of this, our fans are being asked to pay a higher 'non-member' price for their tickets to Estadio Metropolitano.

"We've decided to subsidise tickets for the second leg, meaning our travelling fans will spend the same as those from Atletico. Our travelling fans are the lifeblood of the club and we hope this measure helps to make their journey to Spain a little easier."

Arsenal have been handed an allocation of 3,437 tickets for the game in the Spanish capital.
