Manchester United si Barcelona se cearta pe 27 de lire

Inaintea duelului tur-retur din sferturile UCL, Manchester United si Barcelona se cearta ca doua echipe de Liga 1. La fel cum Astra crestea pretul biletelor pentru fanii lui Dinamo, asa si Barca! Ce sa te astepti de la gusterii aia separatisti?

Barca tocmai a anuntat ca pretul unui bilet pentru fanii lui United care vor sa asiste la duelul de pe Camp Nou va fi de 102 lire sterline. Incredibil! Manchester United a reactionat cu aceeasi moneda, impunand fanilor din Spania sa plateasca tot 102 lire pentru a vedea meciul pe Old Trafford.

Daca povestea se termina aici, as fi spus ca doi se cearta si al treilea, fanul, pierde. Numai ca United a decis ca diferenta de 27 de lire fata de pretul normal pentru un bilet in aceasta faza (75 de lire) sa fie rambursata fanilor care fac deplasarea la Barcelona. Practic, United ia banii de la fanii catalani si ii da celor englezi. Genial! Din comunicatul de presa:

We have been allocated 4,610 standard tickets, however FC Barcelona confirmed our tickets for this game were to be priced at £102. In this instance we believe that our travelling supporters are again being subjected to increased/excessive ticket prices from the host club.

Similarly to Valencia in the group stages and Sevilla FC last season, we have again taken the difficult decision to charge FC Barcelona fans for the home leg at Old Trafford the same amount that FC Barcelona are charging for the away fixture (£102). We will use the additional revenue gained from this to subsidise our travelling support by paying the £27 price difference for each of our travelling supporters.

Din cate stiu, si Barcelona are obiceiul de a subventiona costul biletelor pentru fanii care merg la meciurile UCL din deplasare, dar nu stiu exact in ce procent. Oricum, Barca a dat si ea un comunicat in care se apara destul de stangaci:

We don't increase prices because of the opposition, the prices are usual for this stage of the competition, not just because Manchester United are coming to Barcelona.

It is the same price as in previous years and would be the same if it was Manchester City, Juventus, Liverpool, whoever they got. Barcelona are not making any different decisions because it's Manchester United.

In traducere libera, Barca nu creste pretul biletului in faza asta a competitiei numai pentru Man United, o face pentru toti fanii echipelor adverse. FCB ar trebui sa-si schimbe numele in FDB, ca e foame de bani.

Blah, blah, blah
