Why fans took to protest in Liverpool, Munich Champions League clash

Fans displayed their displeasure in the Champion League clash between Liverpool and Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening with a banner which made reference to the ticket prices for the game.

It is reported by Reuters that the German Bundesliga fans were the ones who led the protest and they were later supported by the Anfield fans because they felt the prices for the ticket were too high.

It would be recalled that English Premier League clubs had agreed earlier in the month that the sum of 30 pounds would be paid as away ticket prices and that is expected to run through the next three months.

It was, therefore, claimed that the increase does not apply to Champions League games which were why the fans had to protest against it.

The fans had a banner claiming that the club had displayed greed in their demand for tickets, while other banner claims “Twenty is plenty”

This is not the first time this would be happening for Bayern Munich fans knowing that they had protested in 2015 against Arsenal with banners as well in a Champions League clash.

However, Liverpool fans will also expect to visit the German Bundesliga outfit in the next three weeks.
