The Spirit of Shankly supporters group are urging Liverpool fans to boycott our Premier League game against Hull City next Tuesday, in an act of protest against the rising ticket prices in English football.

As the Liverpool Echo confirms, tickets for the match at the KC Stadium are priced at £50, with £2 knocked off by the Reds as part of the Premier League’s away fans initiative.
This represents a £15 (31%) rise on the prices for the same fixture last season. Liverpool fans have been further angered by the fact that Hull charged just £16 for travelling Stoke City fans earlier this campaign, while Everton supporters paid only £35 on New Year’s Day.
SOS will launch a protest at Anfield on the day of the game, although they have been quick to point out that their issue is not with our club, as we don’t profit from away day sales.
A number of other clubs have launched similar campaigns. Arsenal and Liverpool fans joined together ahead of our Premier League fixture earlier this month to protest the outrageous rises in Premier League football (via The Telegraph).
