Bayern Munich fans protested against the cost of Champions League tickets by unfurling banners during the first leg of their last-16 tie at Liverpool on Tuesday with the supporters of the Premier League club also backing them at Anfield.
Earlier this month, Premier League clubs had unanimously agreed to keep the 30 pounds cap on away ticket prices for the next three seasons but that does not apply to Champions League games.
“Away ticket: LFC £48. FCB €55. The greed knows no limits. Twenty is plenty.” ?
Both sets of fans have had to pay around the £50 mark for the away legs. They united tonight. Football is nothing without the fans! ?❤️ https://t.co/B9qowTogqk— SPORTbible (@sportbible) February 20, 2019
The three banners at the away end read “Away ticket LFC 48£. FCB 55€”, “Th€ gr€€d knows no £imits” and “Twenty is plenty”, with Liverpool fans also showing support with a round of applause.
The third banner refers to a Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) initiative that urged authorities to cap ticket prices at 20 pounds.
The first leg at Anfield ended 0-0. The second leg at Munich’s Allianz Arena is on March 13.
