MANCHESTER CITY have begun to refund their season ticket holders for the final six Premier League home matches of the season.

The Etihad giants have also agreed to pay back the money for those who had bought tickets for the Champions League second leg with Real Madrid.

The government announced earlier this week there is no prospect of fans returning to stadiums anytime soon due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

So City have moved quickly to reassure their fans they will get reimbursed for the matches they cannot attend.

The statement from the club said: “Given the announcement, Seasoncard holders will now be offered a refund equating to six the value of the remaining six home Premier League games.

“Supporters who had purchased individual tickets for Premier League fixtures or any cup fixture will also receive a full refund.”

Supporters have been offered the chance to use the owed cash as credit ahead of a purchase for next season.

City’s financial figures from last year showed matchday revenue at over £55 million.

Yet this season they could play up to nine games fewer in front of a full stadium – had they gone all the way in the Champions League.
