Default Re: [LC] Semifinal : Manchester United vs Manchester City

Manchester United struggling to sell out Old Trafford for Carabao Cup semi-final clash with Manchester City as 3,500 tickets remain on general sale 24 hours before kick-off with fans put off by 66 price after Christmas

* There could be lots of empty seats on show at Old Trafford for Tuesday's clash
* Home fans haven't snapped up general sale allocation for Carabao Cup semi
* There are tickets priced from as much as 66 and fans haven't been swayed yet


There could be hordes of empty seats on show at Old Trafford for Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final between Manchester United and Manchester City.

Just under 3500 tickets remain unsold for the first leg of the semi-final clash just 24 hours before the two Manchester rivals kick off in the crunch encounter.

Tickets remain available in all four stands for United fans to purchase, with supporters so far failing to snap up the large general sale allocation available to fans who don't have season tickets.

Hordes of tickets remain on sale just 24 hours before kick-off - with some priced at a hefty 66. Old Trafford witnessed its lowest average attendance in 10 years last season at 74,879

The clash will be the first game at Old Trafford in 2020 and fans may have been put off by the prospect of spending more money immediately after Christmas.

Prices for the game in all areas of the ground range from 10 for juniors up to a hefty 66 for adults, with the latter cost seemingly putting off supporters.

Attendances at Old Trafford have fallen in recent seasons, with the average turnout at home games down to 74,879 in 2018-19 - the lowest figure since 2009-10.

That figure is likely to drop again at the end of the season, with the highest attendance this season at 73,737 for October's clash with Liverpool.

Attendances have plummeted as low as 50,783, which was the number of fans who watched United in action against Astana.

Old Trafford currently has a capacity of 76,000, the highest in the Premier League and - 14,000 more than Tottenham's new stadium, which is the second biggest.
