season-tickets

There is such a double standard for female hockey fans. One of the teachers from my school is a half-season ticket holder for the preds and I see him all the time trying to meet players, like me. Yesterday when we were waiting to meet the caps he came up to me and says “what are you some kind of hockey groupie?” And I’m like…. You’re here too??? Doing the same thing as me!!???!!

Liverpool to freeze ticket price for next 2 seasons following fan protests

Liverpool owner Fenway Sports Group has apologised “for the distress caused by our ticket pricing plan for the 2016-17 season” and announced general admission ticket prices at Anfield will be frozen for next two seasons after Saturday’s mass walkout.

Principal owner and John W Henry and chairman Tom Werner were reported to be shocked at the sight of an estimated 10,000 fans walking out of Saturday’s Premier League match against Sunderland in the 77th minute in protest at increases next season which included a new £77 match ticket and the club’s first £1,000 season ticket…

Revenue generated from ticket prices will be frozen at 2015-16 levels; this means the highest match-day price for a general admission ticket will remain at £59 – the lowest will be £9 and these tickets will be offered for every match with an allocation of 10,000 across the season.

The highest season ticket price will be frozen at £869 and the lowest £685.

Liverpool’s owners have also announced the removal of game categorisations, so regardless of the opposition, supporters will pay the same price for match-day tickets.

Read open letter from Liverpool’s owners

British football (i.e., soccer) fans are plotting a mass stadium walkout in protest over rising ticket prices.

The decision by around 10,000 fans to stage a 77th-minute walkout of the Liverpool-Sunderland game was the clearest indication yet that vast numbers of supporters have been driven to breaking point over the failure of teams to share some of their new £8.3 billion television contract, a windfall set to widen the gulf between those within the game and those who pay to follow it.

The protest on Saturday forced Liverpool’s owners to revisit their pricing policy for next season and came in the same week as an online backlash forced Arsenal to scrap a season-ticket surcharge, both of which emboldened campaigners against the rising cost of attending matches to crank up the pressure on other clubs.

A meeting of supporters groups was planned last night for the end of this week or the beginning of next week at which a number of options will be discussed, one being the viability of a mass walkout.
