Ticket price campaign meeting in Liverpool/London

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Football Supporters’ Federation affiliates Spirit of Shankly, the Liverpool supporters’ union, are to hold a meeting in Liverpool (Thursday 9th May) and London (Thursday 16th May) as part of their ‘Football Without Fans is Nothing’ campaign on affordable ticket prices.

As well as being supportive of the FSF’s Twenty’s Plenty campaign (read more and do your bit here), Spirit of Shankly have been leafleting on the issue at recent fixtures and have raised the issue of ticket prices in a meeting with the club’s hierarchy. Next month’s meeting marks the next stage in their campaign as they plan future actions. 

The meeting is open to fans of all clubs, and we’d urge those of you in the north west who are interested in campaigning on or hearing more about the issue of ticket pricing to get along and see what it’s all about.

  • Thursday 9th May, North West meeting – 7.30pm at Static Gallery, 23 Roscoe Lane, Liverpool, L1 9JD.
  • Thursday 16th May, London meeting – 7.30pm at The Horseshoe Inn on 26 Melior Street, SE1 3QP.
