Fans groups planning ticket price protest


A number of Arsenal supporter’s groups will be joined by their Liverpool supporting counterparts in holding a protest before Saturday’s game about the price of match tickets.

It’s an issue that has almost widespread approval, in that you won’t find too many people saying ticket prices are just right or should be higher, and the groups in question want to make public their displeasure to gain further coverage.

The AST, the Black Scarf Movement and REDaction will make their point with support from the Spirit of Shankly and Spion Kop 1906.

The Gooner provides the details:

We at The Gooner urge all Arsenal fans who believe the club is charging too high a price to watch the team to join supporters of both sides at 12 noon at the roundabout.

The two Liverpool fans’ organizations will also boycott the first ten minutes of the match, with a protest outside the away entrance and any Arsenal fans wishing to express their solidarity are welcome to join in. This is a good opportunity for the ‘priced out’ Arsenal fans that come to the area to watch the game in a local pub to have some impact, as the press will be covering both the 12 noon meeting at the roundabout and the stay out protest at the away section turnstiles.

So if you believe the price of watching football is too high, now is the chance for you to join with like-minded souls and make a stand.

You can find more details here or via the respective organisations themselves at their websites or on Twitter.
