Liverpool fans are calling for a boycott of the club’s upcoming match at Hull City.

The Spirit of Shankly supporters’ group claim the ticket price of £50 for the fixture at the KC Stadium on Tuesday is too high.

It points out that Stoke City and Burnley fans were only charged £16 for games against the Tigers earlier in the season, while Everton supporters paid £35 – the same price Liverpool followers paid last season – for the match on New Year’s Day.

James McKenna, chair of the organisation, believes Hull City is monetising the loyalty of Liverpool fans.

He says it sticks in the throat a bit for supporters that they should be expected to cough up more money for a ticket.

Around 400 to 500 supporters are already thought to have agreed to the boycott.

The Spirit of Shankly is currently campaigning for clubs up and down the country to cap away ticket prices.

Liverpool fans previously held up a banner protesting against the cost of football when Hull City visited Anfield in October.
