Furious Man Utd fans lash out after club demands they prove they were at games to renew season ticket due to IT blunder | The Sun
FURIOUS Manchester United fans have lashed out at the club yet again.
That’s after being told to PROVE they went to games in order to renew their season tickets.
The Mail claims United have introduced tougher rules for renewals next season.
Fans must have their tickets scanned at a minimum of 10 league home games.
But an IT glitch did NOT register some attendees at the Old Trafford matches against Brighton, Arsenal and Liverpool.
And United have now emailed affected fans telling them the games will not count towards the renewal requirements – unless they can PROVE they were there.

And they have raised the issue with the club as affected fans look for a speedy resolution.

A MUST statement said: “We are consulting lawyers about a potential class action for interference with contract and also a judicial review for what looks like an irrational decision.”
Committee member Oli Winton added: “This sets a horrific precedent for all events, let alone football matches.
“Police should police a match and not the crowd size.

“The Met were fine with a 60,000 crowd including 3,000 away fans at Tottenham vs Newcastle at the same time on the same day, as that was the original Sky Sports fixtures, so what is the difference here?
