Sevilla FC to charge fans €110 to see Real Madrid

La Liga side become the Kings of Extortion

Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán

Plenty of teams are guilty of jacking up the prices when heavyweight opposition comes to town, but Sevilla have ensured that only those with Lampard-esque bank balances will be able to see their home game with Real Madrid in two weeks time.

Tickets for the clash will go on sale at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium box office tomorrow, and the cheapest option will cost fans a whopping €110. That amount of money will secure a seat in the lofty upper grandstand, and those who wish to secure a better view of Florentino Perez’s Galacticos 2.0 will pay €180 for preferential seating.

If paying three figures to sit with the proles in a 50-year-old stadium sounds a little grotesque, Los palanganas are also offering VIP corporate seating at €300 a pop.

    £45 to watch Liverpool away at Birmingham City – now THAT’S extortion.

    At least Sevilla are a decent side.

    110€ is very expensive, but there’s an explanation: around 80% of the stadium are ticket holders, 10 or 15% are for the visitors’ supporters so they only have 5% left of the tickets to sell in a big match like that one against Real Madrid, and they want to earn as much as they can get for those 5,000 or 6,000 tickets.
