On Tuesday 15 May, Spirit Of Shankly met with LFC to discuss supporter concerns ahead of the Champions League final in Kyiv. We posted a factual report of what took place here.
Earlier today, 15 May, Spirit of Shankly representatives sat down with LFC officials to raise many of the issues facing supporters ahead of the Champions League final in Kyiv.
Following the Mayor of Kyiv's email welcoming Liverpool fans to Kyiv, here is Spirit of Shankly's response, sent by Karen Gill.
On Friday 20 April, tickets go on sale for the away leg of Liverpool’s UEFA Champions League semi-final against Roma. Once again, as happened against Porto earlier in the competition, Liverpool fans are being asked to pay a premium.
Following yesterday's Champions League quarter-final draw, Spirit Of Shankly and Spion Kop 1906 are calling on both clubs to do the right thing by their fans. Given the escalated ticket prices for travelling supporters so far in this season’s competition, there is an opportunity here to send a strong statement on the value of supporters beyond money.
When LFC published the selling details for our away Champions League fixture against Porto, we noted with interest that the price of tickets had been omitted. We were extremely concerned to see that the club were “in discussions with UEFA to clarify the pricing structure for this game”.
‘You got your education from The Kop’. An old-school chant about growing up supporting Liverpool. But it seems increasingly that’s no longer the case.
A scheme launched today will cap a Premier League away ticket at £20. Following on from this season’s cap of £30, for one round of fixtures in April, an away ticket will cost £20 – making the slogan ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ a reality.It is the result of a joint venture between the Football Supporters Federation (FSF) and Virgin Media.
Although the last week has been a sorry tale in the recent history of the relationship between owners of LFC and the Club’s supporters, it has also seen both the best of what Liverpool FC supporters are about and the incredible power those same supporters have to promote change for the better at LFC.
Spirit of Shankly are delighted to share more positive news on the North Liverpool foodbank campaign. Following discussions and meetings throughout the summer with the Imman at the mosque at Brougham Terrace, they are to become a partner. They will hold collections on Fridays at weekly prayers.
