Liverpool fans want top-end ticket prices reduced for the new main stand

Several thousand Liverpool fans walked out of Saturday’s league match with Sunderland at Anfield in protest at rising ticket prices.

A supporters’ group had urged fans to leave their seats in the 77th minute in protest at the £77 top-priced ticket in the new main stand next term.

The walkout followed singing of the club anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ then chants of “enough is enough”.

Liverpool lost a 2-0 lead at the time of the walkout and drew the game 2-2.

Supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly orchestrated the walkout

Earlier, Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre said: “No-one is being priced out of the stadium.”

He urged fans to “look at the facts” before taking part in a walkout and highlighted that 64% of season ticket prices will decrease or freeze.
