A first (bad) news for the fans. With a league ranging from 20 to 18 clubs for the 2023-2024 season, season ticket prices for Ligue 1 could have been brought down. This sesame allows you to attend all meetings at home. And, at first glance, FC Nantes has followed logic: the Nantes ultras will thus pay six euros less than last season to sit in the stands at all matches.

Except that, if we relate the price of the season ticket to the number of matches, the price of the match actually increases… by 8%. “Logically, we expected the price to drop as there are fewer matchessays Camille, a five-year subscriber.
