Liverpool Announce New Price & Ticket Structure

Tue 2nd Feb 2016 | Money & Finance

Liverpool FC have released the pricing and ticket structure ahead of Anfield's new Main Stand opening for the start of the 2016-17 season.

Today's announcement follows a 13-month consultation with the Ticket Working Group, a sub-group of the official Liverpool FC Supporters' Committee, which has met regularly with the club over the last year to discuss affordability and accessibility of tickets.

Ian Ayre, chief executive officer, Liverpool FC, said: “With the opening of our expanded Main Stand, the club is heading into a new chapter and we want as many of our fans right there with us to support the team at Anfield.

“We always carefully consider ticket pricing to ensure the long-term sustainability and competitiveness of the club, while listening to the views of our match-going fans to understand the priorities around accessibility and affordability.

“The feedback has been clear that having more local and young people at Anfield is a priority and we are delighted to be launching these new ticketing initiatives.

“The redevelopment of our Main Stand and increased capacity has given us flexibility to freeze or reduce more than half of all tickets across the stadium, which is reflected in our longer-term plan to give fans more choice on what price they pay to attend a game. 

“We would like to thank our fans in the Ticket Working Group for their commitment, engagement, cooperation and time throughout this process.

“There was agreement from the start that compromise was essential in working together to find solutions to increase accessibility and affordability of tickets.

“We recognise the incredible importance of ticket pricing to our match-going fans and we take the responsibility very seriously in determining pricing at Anfield.

“We are excited about our new Main Stand opening and look forward to welcoming 8,500 additional fans to Anfield next season to support the team.”

Key points from the announcement:

-      64 per cent of season ticket prices will decrease or freeze.

-      45 per cent of matchday tickets will see a price decrease.

-      Local fans given priority access to over 20,000 tickets across the Premier League season, with prices starting from as little as £9.

-      Over 20,000 extra tickets allocated across the Premier League season, in a new pricing category, for fans aged between 17 and 21.

-      Over 1,000 free tickets across the Premier League season to local kids through a new Young Fan Initiative scheme.

-      13 months' consultation with the Ticket Working Group listening to what are priorities for match-going fans.
