FA Cup Arsenal v Liverpool: we’ve been here before

Here we go again Liverpool’s FA Cup third-round tie away to Arsenal in January has left fans with a strong sense of deja vu. Once again, the allocation, ticket price and kick-off time showing scant regard for travelling supporters. Allocation Under FA rules, and up to the semi-finals and final, visiting clubs are allowed 15% of a ground’s capacity, up to a maximum of 9,000 tickets. Liverpool’s allocation of 7,600 for the match on Sunday 7 January is 12.5%. Liverpool FC pushed back on this after an initial allocation of 5,200, but supporters are still missing [...]

Boycott Box Office Pay Per View

Boycott Box Office Pay Per View Spirit of Shankly are calling for a boycott of pay-per-view Premier League games starting with our fixture against Sheffield United on Saturday 24 October 2020. Why we are doing this We recognise supporters will be torn about following their team, but this is blatant exploitation. We are in the middle of the biggest pandemic and economic crisis for a generation, yet the Premier League and their clubs, except for Leicester City, Sky and BTSport have no trouble asking fans to pay £14.95 per game.  It is unacceptable. They have [...]

Project Big Picture: A Joint Statement

Project Big Picture: A Joint Statement The fans we represent are fortunate to support clubs that regularly secure the largest financial revenues in the Premier League. But all of us understand that football doesn’t work in isolation. It’s a family. It requires a fair share of resources to ensure that the Premier League is competitive to watch and that the lower leagues flourish as part of our national game. While the six clubs we support are widely reported to be the instigators of Project Big Picture, it is important we state very clearly that we [...]

PPV and Project Big Picture

PPV and Project Big Picture Over the past weekend, the Project Big Picture document leak and Pay-Per-View announcement (a disgraceful £14.95 per match) have again demonstrated, with zero formal engagement, a complete disregard for fans. The hedge funds and billionaire owners of our football clubs need to understand they are merely custodians. The actions of the club owners and TV broadcasters once more highlight the need for a supporter-led review of football governance. So far, Liverpool Football Club have remained silent on both of these issues and Spirit of Shankly have written asking them to [...]

Profit per view – a disgrace

Profit per view - a disgrace Today, Friday 9 October, the Premier League and TV broadcasters announced details of their pay-per-view plans for matches not currently scheduled to be shown live. Liverpool v Sheffield United on Monday 24 October is one of them. It is agonising for fans that we will not be able to attend matches for the foreseeable future and Spirit of Shankly welcome the broadcasters and Premier League arranging for all fixtures to be televised. Today it has been reported that price is to be £14.95 per game. That is £4.95 more [...]

Christmas Spirit? Not Here

Christmas Spirit? Not Here Liverpool FC will play Everton FC in the FA Cup Third-Round. When the tie, to be played on 5 January 2020 at Anfield, was announced Spirit of Shankly and Everton's Blue Union jointly asked that the clubs consider charging a maximum £20 per ticket. We hoped they would see it as a great gesture at this particularly expensive time of year for supporters. But no. The announcement for ticket prices – £31 to £50 in the Kop and Anfield Road – means away fans will be paying more than they would [...]

Twenty’s Plenty for FA Cup

Twenty's Plenty for FA Cup LIverpool FC have again been drawn to play Everton FC in the Third Round of the FA Cup. The match is due to be played during the first weekend in January 2020. The tie comes on the back of the expensive Christmas period. During December, both sets of supporters between them will have paid for 15 fixtures, plus the World Club Cup for those LFC fans who travelled. A derby is always a great occasion. Rivals on the pitch, off it fans of both clubs remain solidly behind Twenty’s Plenty [...]
