Man Utd staff 'troubled' by INEOS decision after receiving email ahead of FA Cup final

Manchester United shareholders INEOS have reportedly left club staff ‘dismayed’ by streamlining their Wembley benefits for May’s FA Cup final against Manchester City. Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been keen to make cuts after completing his purchase of shares in the Old Trafford club.

For previous FA Cup finals, including last year’s defeat against Manchester City, all 1,100 staff who work for United would receive free tickets. Senior staff and directors would be able to take friends and family.

Included in that deal for United’s most senior hierarchy was reportedly travel to and from Wembley, a pre-match party, a post-match lunch and hotel accommodation in London. But that is set to change under INEOS’s watch, with Ratcliffe stripping perks for the upcoming showdown with City.

According to The Times, an email received by club staff informed them that they would receive only one free ticket to the match. The same limit applied to senior staff and directors.
