FC United have come up with a novel way of ensuring they don’t lose fans during the current recession – they’ve asked them to decide their own season ticket price. This is obviously good news for anyone who was planning to sell their soul to pay for their season ticket.
The Red Rebels have taken the idea from rock band Radiohead, who recently asked fans to pay what they felt was right to download their latest album.
FC United board member Jules Spencer said: “We hope the ‘Your season ticket, your choice’ campaign will do two things. First, it will offer a lower season ticket price for those who cannot afford last year’s price. Secondly, it means those supporters who can afford a bit more can choose to donate as much as they wish.”
The club was launched in 2005 as a protest at Malcolm Glazer’s takeover of Manchester United.
