Sheffield United fans unhappy with ‘ridiculous’ last-day ticket prices donate money to charity instead UK News

On Saturday afternoon, a group of supporters raised £ 800 for The Children’s Hospital Charity – the charitable arm of Sheffield Children’s Hospital – after choosing not to pay up to £ 40 to watch the already relegated Blades, who have won just five of their 37 Premier League games this season.

The club has put on sale tickets for £ 40 for adults and £ 20 for children.

Fans who demanded a refund from Sheffield United when games went behind closed doors last season due to the coronavirus pandemic are not allowed to purchase tickets.

Sheffield United fans will have to pay up to £ 40 to watch the last game of the season at Bramall Lane.

Dean Hussain, who organized the fundraiser, said: ‘£ 40 is absolutely ridiculous for the scale of the game. A horrible season that we have all been through and to top it off with £ 40 for Burnley, yes Burnley at home, Bonkers.

“As long as we’re all ready to go back down the Lane to cheer them on, that’s just another thing.”

The Clarets, who have already provided security, have made 3,500 free tickets available to their last home game of the season.

However, not all Blades fans were unhappy with the ticket prices.

One fan wrote on Twitter: “Wait, you can only have over 5,000, but you probably still have to pay that many employees to work same day, so reasonable prices if you ask me!”

“I bet most of you paid that for away games!”
