Man Utd and Fulham in row over FA Cup ticket prices
Fulham have complained to the Football Association after discovering that some Manchester United fans have been able to purchase seats for this weekend's FA Cup fourth-round tie equivalent to those on offer to Cottagers supporters £5 cheaper. As is common practice for FA Cup games, the clubs had agreed a standard price of £45 for home and away fans but United members have been able to purchase them at a discounted rate of £40.
Fulham claim they were not informed of the discount and it is understood they would not have agreed to it had they known.
A United spokesman said: "Fulham fans are paying the same as United fans who are not members.
"A discount scheme has existed for members for around 20 years.
"We're surprised it has come as a surprise to them."
The FA has received the complaint and is understood to have written to United for a formal explanation.
