Liverpool Follow Man Utd Approach In Hiking Barcelona Prices To Subsidise Supporters

Liverpool have taken a similar approach to Manchester United in hiking ticket prices for Barcelona fans attending the Champions League semi-final in order to reimburse Red supporters facing high charges at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona are setting prices of €119 a ticket for the 4,620 fans who will travel from the UK to Spain next month for the first leg of the semi-final. It is similar to the prices that Manchester United fans faced in the last round.

In response to that, Liverpool will match the price for fans travelling to Anfield for the second leg. This revenue will be utilised to offer away fans a lower Liverpool tickets cost of €88.

A Liverpool statement called on UEFA to look at introducing a more structured pricing system moving forward.

The club believes parity of pricing is the most logical approach and remains committed to working with Uefa, ECA (European Club Association) and other member clubs with a view to introducing a more structured ticket pricing process for Champions League matches.
