Man Utd Ticket Allocation Cut at Anfield and Goodison Park

Tue 24th Jul 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Manchester United will have their ticket allocation reduced at both Anfield and Goodison Park this season, it has been confirmed.

Liverpool City Council have approved plans to reduce the ticket allocation due to health and safety concerns caused by away fans standing in gangways, the second season the council's licensing committee has reduced the allocation at Anfield.

The exact ticket allocation figure for this season at Anfield will be fixed by the club, but it is expected to be similar to the one set last year which saw United’s ticket allocation reduced from more than 3,000 to 1,965.

The issue of United fans standing in the gangways was raised once more at a meeting of the Ground Safety Advisory Group which prompted the Council’s decision.

The number of tickets available for United fans at Goodison Park will be reduced by 26.

Licensing committee chairwoman Christine Banks told the BBC: "All I can say is, it is just for the health and safety of the fans, not stopping their enjoyment of watching the match.

"This is just changes for the forthcoming season, but beyond that if those fans don't stand in the gangways then they will get their ticket allocation back.

"It's up to the fans now."
