The widespread discontent over the cost of match-day tickets (rightly) refuses to go away.
We staged a well-documented walkout against Sunderland earlier in the season which forced FSG into a U-turn over season tickets, but people are still not satisfied.
Our two largest supporters groups – Spirit of Shankly and and SpionKop 1906 – will reportedly join forces with Dortmund’s section of “Kein Zwanni – Fußball muss bezahlbar sein” (No to 20 Euros – football must be affordable) tomorrow night (via Echo).
The protest will apparently take place during the game and will thus be beamed around the world.
The groups have released a joint statement on their plans:
“Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool supporters are proud to announce that they will come together in a unique show of unity over the ever increasing greed and inept governance which is ruining football in both England and Germany.
“SpionKop 1906, Spirit of Shankly and Kein Zwanni will stage a joint show of solidarity with banners at the match.
“Both sets of fans have been at the forefront of their respective Kein Zwanni and Twenty’s Plenty campaigns in recent years.”
It is thought that our fans will also protest about the price of travelling to European away matches. Plane tickets from Liverpool to Dortmund were only £70 a few weeks ago, but jumped to more than £700 after the draw was made.
