"This has been raised with Sevilla, and internally, but ultimately Sevilla have not agreed to significantly lower the price of tickets for our fans", he added.

Manchester United have pledged to subsidise their fans travelling to Sevilla - by charging Spanish supporters £89 to visit Old Trafford for the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

Sevilla are charging Manchester United fans between 89 and 133 pounds ($120 to $179) to watch the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on February 21, which the English club considered excessive.

United however have chose to subsidise their fans making the journey to Spain, by charging Sevilla fans the same price at Old Trafford and giving the extra £35 back to their fans with any left over funds being donated to the Manchester United Foundation.

"We want this to act as a deterrant to future opponents who look to increase ticket prices for our travelling supporters", the United letter continued.

Liverpool fans were charged £54 to watch their side face Sevilla in the Champions League Group Stage earlier this season and, by refunding £35, United supporters will now pay the same figure.

To pay for that gesture, United also made a decision to increase ticket prices for Sevilla fans by £35 each in an effort to protest at what they see is unfair exploitation of their fans.

Andy Mitten - editor of the United We Stand fanzine - said he had received over 100 messages from Sevilla fans expressing their disapproval at the club's stance.

This represented the highest ticket price for a game outside of a final or semi-final in the club's history.

The additional $NZD65 per ticket will be used to offset the expenses of United fans heading to Spain for the first leg, meaning they will pay $NZD104 - the same amount Liverpool supporters paid for their group-stage trip.

"Further to our recent confirmation that you were successful for the Sevilla away game, we wanted to inform you of a change in what you will be charged for this game".

UEFA rules stipulate that at least 5% of a stadium capacity's should be available to visiting supporters, yet Sevilla claim United have not offered them the appropriate 3,800 match tickets. The £35 difference will be refunded prior to the game taking place.

A Manchester United spokesman said: "We are aware of the regulations regarding equal pricing for home and away fans and we will comply".
