In Topic: ₤77 to watch a Liverpool home game next season

but again, you are just quoting the high prices and ignoring the reasonable prices. The youth prices are ver reasonable imho.

There are no reasonable prices for the majority of games. The kids £5 tickets, as far as I'm aware, will have the same limited availability as the £9 adult tickets - ie just a handful of tickets at just 3 games per season.

Premier League ticket prices are a disgrace. I don't understand your hostility to a bunch of people making a stance.

Looking at the pricing structures for Anfield, i feel they have little to complain about. Kids from a fiver and adults from 9 quid. Thats cheaper than the cinema.

I think they have a decent range of prices which is something all sports clubs should offer. We are not all the same so if somebody os prepared to pay 77 quid for premium seats then the club is justified in offering them. If people are not prepared to pay that then they will be empty, but i suspect they will be full.

These fans walking out will be the ones insisting that they compete in the transfer market, wanting somebody elae to pay for it.

It's not really that simple.

There will be just 520 £9 tickets available for only 3 games a season. That'll be less than 1% of the capacity when the new stand is finished.

Aside from the £77 tickets, the others for the Category A games are £75, £71, £67, £66, £65, £64 and £62.

 

I remember paying £21 in 1999.

Other tickets for Cat A games which will cost £175 and, for Cat B which will cost £100 and for Cat C which will cost £85, were suddenly categorised as "Low Level Hospitality" packages. No details of the extent of this hospitality exists as yet because they just made it up at the last minute when pre-empting the inevitable backlash.

I walked out. Didn't expect so many to do so though. New prices were announced on 2 Feb, so to get between 10,000 and 15,000 fans mobilised like that is a great effort.

 

It's had the desired effect in terms of media coverage, so let's hope fans of other clubs will do the same.

I believe so. In the morning hopefully.

I spoke to Phil this evening for an article which will appear on the website tomorrow.

 

There are quite a few guys out of Sunday's game, but Graeme Mattinson is in contention. Phil's delighted with pre-season though, and reckons the players are in great shape.
