We will subsidise tickets for our Europa League semi-final second leg away at Atletico Madrid.
This will ensure our travelling fans pay no more for their tickets than Atletico’s supporters will pay for the first leg in London.
Tickets for the away match on Thursday, May 3 were priced at £79 by Atletico compared to £36.50 for the Spanish side's fans in the first leg game. We will make up the difference.
Arsenal supporters’ liaison officer Mark Brindle said: “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.
"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.”
