That’s a flipping chutzpah.

Manchester City fans should rightly feel they are being ripped off after tickets for their Champions League match at Czech minnows Viktoria Plzen went on sale for a jaw-dropping £86.

The £86 tickets were only released after City had sold out their original 600 seat allocation for the match. Those tickets had cost £47.

Whilst the price of the tickets obviously unreasonably sky-high, part of the problem relates to supply and demand as Plzen’s Doosnan Arena capacity is a paltry 11,700.

There is also a catch to the £86 tickets. Any Man City fans who fork out for the expensive seat won’t even get to sit in the away section.

A series of tweets lambasting the £86 tickets are below.
