Liverpool file complaint ahead of Manchester City clash

Liverpool Football Club has reportedly issued a complaint to the Premier League after their ticket allocation for their upcoming match against Manchester City was significantly reduced. According to reports from

The Daily Mail, the Reds were informed by Manchester City that they would be receiving 20% fewer tickets for their travelling fans due to a “number of instances of disorder” at previous matches between the two teams.

The reduction in ticket allocation means that Liverpool will only be allocated around 2,400 seats for their fans at the Etihad Stadium, a significant drop from the usual 3,000 seats that Premier League away teams receive for matches.

The decision was reportedly agreed upon by Greater Manchester Police, the Safety Advisory Group, and Manchester City.

Liverpool released a statement on Wednesday confirming the reduction in their ticket allocation and challenging the decision.

The statement read:

“Liverpool Football Club has been informed that its ticket allocation for the forthcoming Premier League fixture against Manchester City on April 1 at Etihad Stadium has been significantly reduced. This reduction was agreed between Greater Manchester Police, the local Ground Safety Advisory Group and Manchester City.”

The statement further added, “LFC has been in contact with the Premier League and Manchester City to challenge this decision. The club is committed to having as many supporters as possible in stadiums for Premier League away fixtures.”

The match between Liverpool and Manchester City is scheduled to take place on April 1 and is expected to be a highly anticipated showdown between the two Premier League giants. Liverpool’s defeat to Bournemouth and their exit from the Champions League have added more pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s men to perform well in this crucial fixture.

Meanwhile, Manchester City, who are currently in second place in the Premier League table, are hoping to defend their title by clinching the top spot once again. The reduction in ticket allocation for Liverpool fans is likely to further fuel the already intense rivalry between the two teams.
