Liverpool and Watford have announced reduced ticket prices for both the home and away Premier League fixtures that are still to be played between the two sides this season.
The agreement poses as a precedent that fans will be hoping to see other Premier Clubs implement as the fight against hefty admission prices continues.
The Reds announced a statement on the club website, saying: “Visiting U16s at both Anfield and Vicarage Road will be charged just £5, while over 65s and students will pay £10. Adult tickets will be priced at £30.”
It is fair to say that the adjustment isn’t perfect, but it is a step in the right direction and one that must be followed up by the rest of the league if we want to continue seeing both young and old fans cheer on their chosen teams.
Twenty is plenty as they say, so hopefully one day down the line our beloved game will once again become affordable for all age groups.
Having said this, the love we Liverpool fans have for our club means it would be difficult for any sum of money to put us off from paying to watch Jurgen Klopp’s men play.
