LIVERPOOL SCRAP TICKET PRICE HIKE AFTER FAN MUTINY
ENGLISH Premier League football club Liverpool's owners on Wednesday apologised and scrapped controversial plans to hike Anfield ticket prices after 10,000 fans walked off the grounds in protest at the weekend.
As a result of Saturday's mutiny, revenue generated from ticket prices will be frozen at 2015-16 levels; this means the highest match-day price for a general admission ticket will remain at £59 (S$118) - the lowest will be £9 and these tickets will be offered for every match with an allocation of 10,000 across the season.
