Liverpool and Man United set for bargain as Maguire issues £11m

Both Liverpool and Man United are in contention to pocket ‘significant sums’ from July’s exhibition game in Thailand.

That’s the view of finance guru Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively to Football Insider on the potential for profitability of touring abroad.

As both Liverpool and United club media confirmed on Thursday, March 31, the duo will meet at the Centenary Cup in Thailand.

The pre-season ahead of 2022-23 represents each side’s first chance to tour overseas since the pandemic began.

The cheapest tickets to watch the clash at the Rajamangala Stadium cost the equivalent of £114, but the vast majority of seats are priced at £455.

Maguire has revealed United made £11.3million on their last pre-Covid exhibition tour and are in line for a similar bargain this summer.

“They charge very high ticket prices, which is not a big surprise,” he said Football Insiderit’s Adam Williams.

“They will agree a fee with the promoter and then the promoter agrees on the price of the tickets, so the two are not tied.

“Both clubs will be on significant sums. In 2019, in a pre-Covid environment, United generated £11.3m from friendlies.

“To put this in some context, they have earned more money from exhibition games than Crystal Palace and Fulham in a full season of match revenue.

United are currently 6th in the Premier League, while Liverpool are 2nd.

The two teams will meet for the last time this season at Anfield on April 16.
