The Gunners have recently come in for heavy criticism after 912 tickets, priced at £62 each, were returned by Manchester City.

A survey carried out in October confirmed Arsenal have the most expensive adult match-day ticket (£126) and season ticket (£1,955) in the Premier League.

But, after a "a full review by the Arsenal board", the club have decided to freeze their ticket prices for the 2013-14 campaign.

A statement on their official website read: "The move follows a full review by the Arsenal board which included an assessment of the current economic environment and feedback from fans' groups.

"The price freeze means Arsenal will have made only two across the board inflation-linked price increases in the eight years since it has been at Emirates Stadium.

"This season the club introduced new pricing categories which created 90,000 cheaper tickets at £25 as part of its drive to provide more tickets at affordable prices. In addition it continued the policy of offering prices at £10 for adults and £5 for children for home Capital One Cup ties.

"The price freeze applies to all match ticket prices including season tickets in both General Admission and Club Level. Club Level season ticket renewals will begin on February 12."
