Ireland fans are being charged up to €90 by the FAI for general tickets to the friendly against England in June - higher than prices for the Euro 2016 qualifier with Scotland six days later.

The FAI confirmed the Category B and A tickets to see England at the Aviva Stadium on June 7 are set at €70 and a hefty €90 respectively.

This is a sharp spike in the equivalent cost from the competitive game against Group D rivals Scotland, which are €50 and €70.

In a bid to arrest declining attendances for home internationals in recent years, the FAI unveiled a series of 'bundle' packages.

Would you be willing to pay up to €90 for an international friendly?
