Gazidis reveals there will be Arsenal announcement on new issue
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has made it clear to fans that there will be an important announcement regarding changes to ticket prices should the Gunners fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Arsene Wenger’s men are currently sitting outside the top four of the Premier League after failing to sustain their challenge for title midway through the season.
As a result, Arsenal are now facing the prospect of Europa League football for the first time in Wenger’s 21-year reign.
And when asked about what effect that would have on prices for season ticket holders, Gazidis told the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust that there will soon be an announcement of the club’s plans.
“Many thanks for your thoughtful letter about pricing for next season,” Gazidis said in response to an enquiry from AST
“Although it is something we don’t want to happen, we have obviously given this a good deal of thought both this season and in previous years.
“I can assure you that the key objectives you have identified – fairness and strong attendances – underpin the work we have done in this area.
“Should we end up in the Europa League we will announce our plans swiftly so people know what is happening.”
