Real Madrid fans are upset after hearing about the prices that Barça are going to charge for the Clásico on December 3 at the Camp Nou. The 600 tickets being made available for visiting fans of Los Blancos will cost 123 euros each. If you consider where the away fans will be located in the stadium – where they’re so high at the back that the players look like ants and there is the added intrusion of the newly installed security screen which separates them from the home fans – this is an incredible amount to be asked to pay.
At least make it fair
The feeling of unease is magnified when the value that Barça fans paid on their last visit to the Bernabéu is considered. In last season’s league match their tickets cost 80 euros, 43 less than what is expected next month for Madrid fans. The ‘Madridista Association March 6, 1902’ sent a letter to LaLiga to show their discontent of this abusive escalation of prices, something they feel they are being disadvantaged with. In it they wrote:
“It is unacceptable that in countries with higher incomes they pay much less than in Spain. In England there is a maximum price set of 39 euros for visiting fans, not to mention Germany, where fans are treated for what they are, the heart of football.”
