Liverpool fans will be charged €119 (£103) for a ticket by Barcelona for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on May 1.
Barcelona has enraged English clubs this season with their unreasonable ticket valuing, with both Tottenham and Manchester United fans suffered, and Liverpool presently winds up similarly in the same situation.
Liverpool endeavored to hold meetings with Barcelona over an estimating structure. They had a meeting with Porto authorities before the Champions League quarter-finals and the Portuguese club chose to decrease the expense of seats instead of charge a premium.
However, this is not the case with Barcelona and Liverpool now take what they have called ‘reciprocal measures’ and charge Barcelona fans €119 (£103) for the return leg at Anfield on May 7. Liverpool will then subside their fans costs by €31 (£27).
The club said in a statement: All away tickets are priced at €119 (£103), which is in line with FC Barcelona’s pricing structure for the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League.
‘As a result, LFC will charge Barcelona supporters a reciprocal ticket price of €119 (£103) in the return leg at Anfield on Tuesday May 7. The additional revenue from this higher ticket pricing will be used to subsidise Liverpool supporters for their tickets, reducing the price by €31 (£27) to €88 (£76).
‘The club believes parity of pricing is the most logical approach and remains committed to working with UEFA, ECA (European Club Association) and other member clubs with a view to introducing a more structured ticket pricing process for Champions League matches.’
