The World is waiting patiently for Premier League 2018/19 season to kick off on 11th of August. Russia World Cup entertained us but there is nothing that compares to the famous English championship. Pep Guardiola lifted the 2017/18 trophy with Manchester City but things can change quickly if they lose their season opener against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium. Manchester United fans will hope to be entertained when Jose Mourinho welcomes Leicester City at Old Trafford. Maurizio Sarri will open his League account for Chelsea away against Huddersfield Town. Liverpool fans will hope this is their season after successful transfer season when they take on West Ham United at Anfield. Tottenham Spurs will hope to be ready to face Newcastle United at St. James Park. Today, as the wait for the new continues, we take a look at five costliest season tickets for 2018/19.
5. Newcastle United- £571
Newcastle United will pay £27 more to get their season tickets for 2018/19. This is because, after a good season under Rafa Benitez, they management has decided to increase the prices. The Toon Army fans will need to pay £571 next season. The club has not signed as many players as the Spaniard wanted and there are reports he might leave before the start of next season. The fans have started a campaign called –If Rafa Leaves We Leave- in a bid to try and push for more signings.
4. Liverpool- £685
Liverpool has made some big signings this summer. The most recent one broke a record. Jurgen Klopp paid £67 million to sign Alisson Becker from AS Roma. This was their fourth arrival because Shaqiri, Keita and Fabinho arrived earlier. The Reds will be dangerous next season. This is the best team they’ve had since 2007 when they lost UEFA Champions League to AC Milan. There is more good news for Anfield faithful because the club has decided not to increase the season ticket price. They will pay £685 they paid last season.
3. Chelsea- £750
Chelsea finished in Premier League last season. Antonio Conte delivered the FA Cup but that was still not enough because the club still sacked him. Former Napoli Coach Maurizio Sarri is the boss at Stamford Bridge now. The Blues fans will hope the good days can return this season after a painful campaign last year. The good news is that the club will not increase £750 they paid the last term for season tickets. The failure to qualify for UEFA Champions League in 2018/19 is the obvious reason there is a freeze on the prices.
