From The Socialist newspaper, 10 February 2016

Liverpool fans walk out against ticket price hikes

15,000 Liverpool fans walked out of the team's game with Sunderland in protest against owners' extortionate price hikes.

US firm Fenway Sports Group bought the Reds in 2010. Fans will have to cough up 77 for home tickets - in spite of an increased number of seats.

Supporters group Spirit of Shankly described the protest as "a difficult choice". After one third of the stadium's capacity walked out in the 77th minute, Liverpool conceded two goals. The Anfield fixture resulted in a 2-2 draw.

Fans chanted "Out the ground at 77" and "Enough is enough you greedy bastards" throughout the match. Presenters on Match of the Day and other celebrities have since come out in support of the campaign.

The Socialist says that fans, not grasping corporations, should own and manage their sports clubs. Kick the profiteers out of the beautiful game!
