Ticketing is the most regular issue that fans tend to have with Liverpool Football Club.
Typical issues are ticket prices, availability, members sales, booking system, fan update for members, fan update for season ticket holders and ticket touting.
Our track record includes #FootballWithoutFansIsNothing, #TwentysPlenty and supporting Spion Kop 1906’s #WalkOutOn77.
We’ve been successful in driving the away ticket price cap, have successfully campaigned on home ticket prices, Cup pricing, local sales. We constantly strive to help young people get into Anfield. We collaborate with the FSA, other supporters groups on a range of ticketing issues nationally and we’ve campaigned in Europe for a fairer share of tickets and better conditions surrounding European Finals.
Its an ongoing and ever movable issue that isn’t going to go away. We commit to representing Liverpool supporters and our members and speaking up on the issues that concern us all.
