Arsenal have pledged to freeze ticket prices at the Emirates Stadium next season, citing a goal to maintain "fair and balanced" costs.

For the seventh time in 11 seasons, Arsenal will not increase admission fees ahead of the new season meaning the most expensive season ticket will continue to cost £2,103 and the cheapest will remain at £1,014.

No club charges fans more for season tickets.

"We have incredible home support with sell-out crowds for every game", said Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis.

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