Arsenal have announced a freeze on ticket prices for next season.

Arsenal will freeze ticket prices for the 2016/17 season, the Barclays Premier League leaders announced on Friday.

The Gunners currently have the most expensive season ticket in the division at £2,013 and the Emirates Stadium also has the priciest lowest season ticket, coming in at £1,014.

But, for the seventh time in 11 years, Arsenal have said they will not put prices up, with chief executive Ivan Gazidis aiming for a continuation of regular sell-outs.

"We have incredible home support with sell-out crowds for every game," he told

"This decision reflects our on-going aim to maintain a fair and balanced approach to our ticket pricing."

The Emirates Stadium is currently the biggest club football stadium in London but will be surpassed when the new home of local rivals Tottenham opens close to their current White Hart Lane ground.

Ticket pricing throughout English football has been a hot topic in recent years and last October a number of Bayern Munich fans boycotted the first five minutes of their Champions League tie at the Emirates Stadium over the £64 they were charged to attend.
