Manchester United fans are being urged to boycott season tickets for next season in protest against the Glazer family, the club’s owners.
With the Glazers insisting they have no intention of relinquishing their power to the Red Knights consortium or any other potential buyers, the Independent Manchester United Supporters’ Association (Imusa) has written to its members asking them not to renew their season tickets this summer, in a collective show of mutiny.
“There are many who have gone down this route already and many more who plan to do the same,” the organisation said in a statement published on their website. “We all know that hundreds of millions are going out of the club in interest payments … We can stop them doing this but only if we starve them of cash.”
The idea is that the Glazers’ cash flow will be badly affected if season-ticket holders choose instead to stay away until there is a takeover or to buy tickets on a match-by-match basis.
