Arsenal to subsidise tickets for Europa League semi-final
Arsenal will subsidise tickets for fans travelling to Madrid for the Europa League semi-final tie to ensure they pay no more than £36.50 Atletico supporters will pay at at the Emirates for the first leg.
‘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.’
The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust had made representation to both the Gunners and Uefa and welcomed the move.
A spokesman said: ‘We’re very pleased that Arsenal have listened and are genuinely trying to help supporters.’
