Liverpool announce season ticket hike

Liverpool have announced a 7% increase in season ticket prices for next season. Part of the rise is due to the return of VAT to 17.5% from its temporary level of 15% introduced by the government during the recession, but most of the extra cash will go to the club, reports the Guardian.

There had been fears the new ticket prices would be higher as the announcement was late but even so an increase is not going to be well-received with the team finishing seventh in the league and missing out on Champions League football.

Supporters will also argue that an increase could have been avoided altogether if the co-owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, had not loaded the club with debts of £350m.
