Liverpool fans protest Hull City ticket prices

Two leading Liverpool FC supporter groups have announced plans to boycott their team's trip to the KC later this month because of the away ticket price of £48.

Liverpool fans protest Hull City ticket prices

Spirit of Shankley say that the mark up in price compared to the same fixture last season and compared to other Premier League games at the KC this season is unfair.

With support of the Spion Kop 1906 group, the Spirit of Shankly Management Committee have decided that we will not be attending this match. Instead, we will hold a demonstration at Anfield to voice our displeasure at the disgraceful pricing of Premier League tickets.

In solidarity, many of the regular independent coaches that are organised and travel from Liverpool will also not betravelling to this fixture. Fans can simply not afford to attend every game at the prices that are currently set.

We would encourage fans to join us on that night to tell the money men of the Premier League cartel that they cannot continue to charge exorbitant prices, whilst making obscene amounts of money. This wealth should be shared and passed back to the lifeblood of the game, the supporters.

Hull City are yet to comment on the protests.
