Last season the club introduced a tiered pricing system dependent on the location within Anfield – with the most expensive tickets being in the central areas of the Centenary and Main Stands.

This year, the club have reduced ticket prices for 17-21 year olds for cup matches, but increased Category A match prices in the top tier by £7 per game.

Last season, the top price for a “Category A” game – those against Man United, Man City, Chelsea, Spurs, Everton, Arsenal, and somehow Newcastle – was £52, that’s now up to £59.

Category B matches have gone up from £49 to £53 in the highest tier. Category C were £46 are now £49.

The lowest tier price for each category has risen by £1, nothing, and £3 respectively.

All this means that Liverpool’s top tickets for a Category A match have risen from £39 in 2009/10, to £59 five years later. An increase of 50 percent in five years.

This is largely due to the new tiered pricing system that was introduced, which allowed the club to charge much higher prices for the central areas of the Main Stand and Centenary.

Tickets in other areas have not risen by the same amount, as noted by Dan Kennett, Kop tickets have risen in line with inflation since 2009.

Liverpool also revealed a new pricing structure for domestic and European games. With different prices according to the opposition and which league they play in. However, that does mean that a ticket for Leicester City in the League Cup would be the same as one for Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Another fan tweeted to raise the point that tickets in the back row(s) of the Anfield Road lower tier, where the view is extremely obstructed, is not discounted in any way.

Season ticket prices for 2014/15 range from £869 (tier 1) to £710 (tier 6).
