The executive committee of the Argentine Football Association (AFA) has announced a 28 percent rise in prices across the country’s five most prestigious football leagues: the Superliga, Primera B Nacional, Primera B Metropolitana, Primera C and Primera D.

These increases are specific to the populares section of the stands, but various increases apply to all areas of the stadium. Amounts are in Argentine pesos.

-Superliga: $320 ($250)
-Primera B Nacional: $290 ($225)
-Primera B Metropolitana: $220 ($170)
-Primera C: $190 ($150)
-Primera D: $140 ($110).

Víctor Blanco, the president of Racing Club, confirmed the change as he exited the executive committee meeting on Viamonte street, reported Perfil.

“For the clubs and the fans there’s nothing better than to become a socio,” or official club member, Blanco said about the benefits socios enjoy over the average fan.

The last price hike was in April 2017, when tickets became 25 percent more expensive, according to Infobae.
