    you feel for the WBA fans, their tickets would be chepaer if the game were earlier in the season, bit rich of us to charge so much when we sent back arsenal tickets last year due to price.

    yeah, im from darlington. havent watched them too much recently but nice to see their doing alright again. could be a good game at the weekend, two teams looking at the playoffs maybe.

    will be nice if they get back to playing in darlington next year.

    Surely the point should be that we are charging all fans these extortionate prices, not just the bloody away fans!!

    Our forums are always full of people moaning about £50 away at Norwich etc, but atleast there is the argument that we would be a 'category A' match at almost all away grounds.

    These games against Fulham, West Brom etc should be the 'cheaper' games, compared to clashes with teams of a better stature but this season this seems to have gone out of the window.

    £45 v Fulham was bad enough, but £56 to see City v West Brom is not fair, and is plain profiteering.

    Hi Citeh Fans. Baggies fan here. I was a regular posted on the site the chap linked (wba unofficial) and the posters on there are bang on the money.
    £56 is a joke in all honesty. Without even factoring into account it will be on SKY at 8pm on a Monday. Many Albion fans won't be able to travel back down to the Midlands due to the last train leaving at around 9pm.

    I've actually sent an e-mail to Man City ticketing department (included a few comments from wba unofficial). When/If I hear back I'll let you guys know what was said.

    If it was Norwich I'd say fair enough because they ripped our fans off. But to be fair to WBA they always give us a good allocation at affordable prices!

    The tit for tat approach won't really get us anywhere though will it?

    Too much was made about that being a protest.

    I'd have gone but for the fact that it was a Sunday 16:00 kickoff and in January I have a 6 week gap between pay packets, so couldn't afford not to be at work first thing Monday morning

    That would be a ridiculous approach, never,ind the fact that our own fans would then be charged these extortionate prices. Football should be affordable for everyone especially for games that are against lower teams ( not cat a games).

    to me how they have come to this price is baffling when they are charging Villa fans 9 quid less! They're both mid week so i cannot see how they can explain a 9 pound difference..

    Spoke to my mate who's a villa fan and they've got an agreement with swansea and newcastle to charge less than 27 quid , swansea only charged students 10 pound for the game too... These price agreements are definitely the most effective way of making games affordable hence why villa easily sold these games out

    The pricing is all over the place and charging that much is a joke. Makes no sense when the Sunderland adult tickets are from £18 on another midweek match. Disappointing from City.

    We are not charging Baggies fans £56, as in targeting them for whatever reason.

    City are charging everyone that sits in the South Stand £56. Home or away fans.

    The criticism should be against City for charging that much at all.
