Tickets for the biggest and most important Manchester derby in living memory have been selling online for an incredible £1,300.
Manchester City entertain bitter rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night in what could be the Premier League title decider. Only three points separate the two sides with three games left to play and a win for Manchester United on their “noisy neighbours” home ground would surely secure another title for their trophy cabinet.
The online sales have led to police fears of potential trouble if rivals fans end up sitting next to each other in the stadium.
The Sun quote a Greater Manchester Police spokesman;
‘We’d warn fans that if they buy tickets online they could be fakes and if home fans end up in the away end or vice versa they’ll be identified early on and ejected.’
For fans spending £1,300 on a single ticket for the game, that would equate to £14 per minute of football on the pitch. For those not daft enough to spend that kind of money, the match is of course live on Sky Sports on Monday night football.
