Arsene Wenger is leaving the Emirates at the end of the season, and match tickets for his final home game at the Emirates are being resold for up to £1,800.
Le Prof has been at the club for a long time, and regardless of agitation towards the end of his 22-years tenure, it is clear that fans are keen to give the French boss a legitimate send-off.
Wenger’s last home game in front of the Emirates faithful will be played on Sunday, against Burnley, and tickets were initially sold on the club’s official site between £26 and £38.50.
However, when it was reported that Wenger would leave the club come to the end of the season, the stadium rapidly sold out, with supporters anxious to attend the long-serving manager’s farewell.
And due to the high demands, tickets are currently being resold at an inflated prize, and on online commercial market ‘Ticketbis’ people are paying up to £1,800 for entry to the Emirates. This phenomenon is practically comparable to the end of Alex Ferguson’s reign at Manchester United when fans paid as much as £3000 for seats in Old Trafford.
In spite of the symbolic significance of the game, there isn’t much in question as far as the end result of the clash with Burnley, though. The two sides are practically guaranteed to finish in the Europa League spots, in spite of the fact that Sean Dyche’s led side could draw level on points with the Gunners with a win.
