The most expensive football SEASON TICKET in the WORLD has gone on sale at an incredible £15,000 for just one seat.
It is not for Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid or Barcelona but for minor team PETERBOROUGH UNITED.
The Cambridgeshire Club is charging more than ALL the 92 League clubs in England and the top teams in Europe after launching 10 special Chairman’s Choice tickets for the 2011-12 campaign.
This year the top price for a season ticket is £1825 at Arsenal, followed by £1695 at Chelsea, £1575 at Real Madrid and £1210 at Tottenham Hotspur. But Posh fans will have to pay SEVEN times the price of an Arsenal season ticket for just one seat in the director’s box at London Road to watch the N-Power League 1 team.
Ticket holders will be called “honorary directors” and be able to watch every home game, including cup fixtures and friendlies, against teams such as Exeter, Carlisle, Hartlepool, Rochdale and Yeovil. For their money they WON’T get to see top team players such as Rooney, Ronaldo, Torres and Lampard – but they will get to personally meet the Peterborough United first team squad. They will also be able to eat as many MEAT PIES as they want and be invited to an away game as a guest of one of the club’s directors.
“It is the first time we have done this. We had some seats left in the director’s box so we decided to launch this ticket,” said a spokesman for Peterborough United.
“It is a lot of money and we have no idea what the response will be like, but it’s something different so we hope people will go for it.”
One Peterborough United fan said the £15,000 ticket would be “worth every penny.”
“If I could afford it I’d definitely pay that much to watch them, it would be worth every penny,” said Julie Harris, 34, from Peterborough, Cambs.
“I’m sure there will be some rich fans who will grab the tickets.”
Peterborough United is currently fourth in the N-Power League 1 table with Brighton, Bournemouth and Huddersfield ahead. They are managed by Alex Ferguson’s son Darren and famous ex-players include David Seaman. Past achievements include Football League 3rd Tier runners-up in 2008-9 and Football League 4th Tier runners-up in 2007-8.
