Liverpool: Liverpool fans have been urged to walk out of Anfield during today's match against Sunderland in protest at their club's new ticket prices.
The Spion Kop 1906 supporters group has asked fans to show their unhappiness in the 77th minute of the EPL fixture. Liverpool this week announced a new pricing structure for the 2016-17 season, which will see the most expensive match day ticket in the redeveloped Main Stand rise from £59 ($86, 76 euros) to £77.
The new pricing structure will also see the cost of the most expensive season ticket price rise to £1,029, with the lowest costing £685. A message posted by Spion Kop 1906 on Twitter on Thursday said:
"Let's make sure the owners know this is unacceptable. "On 77 minutes, leave your seat and walk out. Tell the people around you. Tell them why. Walk out on 77 minutes and show you care. Love the team - hate the prices.
#WalkOutOn77". Spion Kop 1906's idea has been backed by fans' group Spirit of Shankly, who said it was "extremely disappointed" with the "unfair and unnecessary" prices.
