Dundee United have today announced a 20% increase in season ticket sales over the same period as last year.

The Tangerines have revealed that they are just shy of 2,500 season ticket books being sold for the 2018/19 season.

That figure includes nearly 200 new sales from U/16 fans – paving the way for a new generation of Arabs.

It is encouraging signs for Tannadice chiefs after the bitter disappointment of last season.

Issuing a statement, chairman Mike Martin expressed his gratitude to the fans.

He said: “It is very positive that so many have purchased season tickets already. To see the total sitting ahead of last year like-for-like gives everyone a boost and I am further delighted that the new U/16s category is clearly proving popular.

“The club appreciates the support. We are committed to bringing players to the club who will help us secure promotion next season and this tangible commitment from our fans assists hugely in this task.

“Thank you to everyone who has already purchased a season ticket.”
