Real rip-off for Cher­ries fans

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

NEWLY pro­moted Bournemouth have landed a dream pre-sea­son friendly with Real Madrid – but have an­gered loyal fans by charg­ing them SIXTY QUID to see the game!

The Cher­ries, who fin­ished sec­ond in League One last sea­son, wel­come Carlo Ancelotti and his Madrid megas­tars to Dean Court on July 21. Chair­man Ed­die Mitchell beamed: “Real Madrid are at the pin­na­cle of global sport and to host them will be an hon­our.

“We see the fix­ture as a well-earned gift to our fans for their un­wa­ver­ing ded­i­ca­tion to AFC Bournemouth.”

But Mitchell’s “gift” is an out­ra­geously ex­pen­sive one, with adult tick­ets on sale for £60 and un­der-16s hav­ing to shell out £30, while sea­son ticket hold­ers will get a measly £5 dis­count.
