David Gill has claimed that are season ticket sales are in line with every other season, despite calls from organisations like MUST for fans to delay renewal.
“There haven’t been any boycotts. Every game at Manchester United has been sold out,” said Gill. “Our season ticket sales and renewals for this upcoming season are on track with previous years – our executive ticket renewals are on track. We’ll have to see at the start of the season but we’re envisaging sell-out crowds going forward for Manchester United.”
If you are going to renew, DELAY until closer to the deadline. You have until June 13th so for the sake of our club, regardless of whether you know for certain that you are going to renew, just sit tight.
“The owners that we have at Manchester United have been true to their word since they took over the club in 2005,” Gill continued. “They’ve brought commercial expertise and commercial benefit to us in a number of areas and we’ve seen our revenues grow significantly. The structure that we have in place in terms of the bond that was issued in January of this year means that our interest costs are set for the next seven years. The revenues coming into the club, but also into football, are significant and we easily can meet those interest payments. So we’re very confident that the business model we have in place will be secure and will ensure the club can continue to compete at the top of football for many years to come.”
