Liverpool ticket prices: Fans to meet with club over rising fees

Posted by

There is anger around the cost of going to games.

Liverpool FC Supporters’ Committee have been invited by the club to come to a meeting opn December 11 to discuss their concerns over rising ticket prices at Anfield, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Flags and banners have been displayed at recent matches complaining about the cost of going to watch the team in action and now the fans will be able to air their concerns to the hierarchy.

This has been arranged after fans unions The Spirit of Shankly and Spion Kop 1906 wrote an open letter to owner John Henry about their issues and the American has set up this meeting in response.

A protest was held before the Premier League clash with Stoke City on Saturday where supporters were encouraged to replace traditional banners with ones about their concerns.

It was pointed out that in 1990 it cost £4 to see the side in action, whilst it was £24 in 2000 and now it costs £43. There was also questions about how much it will be come 2020.

To go to Anfield on match day the cheapest ticket can be picked up for £37, whilst the most expensive stretches all the way up to £59.

There is plenty of support for these prices to be lowered, with former England international Gary Lineker taking to Twitter to criticise Premier League sides for their high fees.
