Liverpool owners ‘hold talks with club officials over new ticket prices’
Liverpool‘s American owners Fenway Sports Group have reportedly held talks with club officials regarding the re-structuring of ticket prices for next season.
Around 10,000 supporters walked out of Anfield in the 77th minute of the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Saturday in protest against the hike in prices.
The Merseyside outfit announced last week that ticket prices for six Category A games, which include matches against Manchester United and Everton, will rise from £59 to £77 next season.
The walkout occurred just a few minutes before Liverpool let a 2-0 lead slip as Sunderland came back with two goals of their own to claim a point.
Now, according to Sky Sports News, FSG has contacted the club to discuss whether to review the new pricing structure.
Chief executive Ian Ayre recently defended the re-structure, pointing out that 45% of matchday tickets are decreasing, while 64% of season tickets are reducing or remaining the same price.
