Supporters call for fair City pricing

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.

Supporters say no to Christmas eve football

Football supporters know all too well the impact that changes to the fixture schedule can have. Plans are rearranged and often expense incurred when a match is moved to accommodate cup football or TV scheduling. We have very little, if any, say, despite being the most put on stakeholders in the game.

Liverpool and United say £nough is £nough

Amid the frenetic atmosphere of the Liverpool - Manchester United game last weekend, supporters of both clubs were able to put their fierce rivalry to one side to display solidarity on an issue that affects all supporters, regardless of team colours. That issue is the price of match tickets and the message is simple - £nough is £nough.

Football without fans is nothing

At a time of increasing commercialisation, it’s important to remember what made the game of football the sport it is today. Footballers, managers and the supporters. Or the ‘Holy Trinity’ as Bill Shankly liked to call it.

Walk out on ’77 : 5 years ago today

Walk out on '77 : 5 years ago today Today, Saturday 6 February, marks the fifth anniversary of fans walking out of Anfield in protest at ticket-price increases. This unprecedented action was broadcast around the world and led to LFC’s owners apologising to fans and backing down. Following months of ongoing discussions with Spirit of Shankly and @SpionKop1906 over their future pricing policy, at the start of 2016 LFC announced increases for the following season. These included seats in the newly constructed Main Stand at £77 per game. At a time when TV revenue was [...]

Champions of Everything and Everywhere

Champions of Everything and Everywhere On Wednesday, 22 July, Jordan Henderson will finally lift the Premier League trophy. Spirit of Shankly wish to congratulate him, the team, and Jürgen Klopp and his management team on this fantastic achievement. The downside of the victory is that fans won’t be inside Anfield to witness this, and any victory parade around the city will be delayed. But what a brilliant season it has been. Its unusual nature has led SOS to concentrate on community activities. We set up our Help is Here campaign alongside supporting and sharing efforts [...]

SOS and Blue Union Joint Statement

SOS and Blue Union Joint Statement When it was announced players were to resume training, the focus on football returned to how the season should be concluded. For Spirit of Shankly and The Blue Union, our primary concern remains the number of cases and tragic deaths from Covid-19. Ideally competitive football would restart when it is safe for all – players, officials, matchday staff and the game’s main stakeholders, supporters. In reality this is unlikely. The consensus is that if the season is to be finished it will be behind closed doors without fans. Therefore [...]

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 [...]
