Liverpool have announced they will increase the price of their tickets for the first time in nine years.
But the Reds have stated that the raise of tickets will be kept to just two per cent, with season tickets to cost no more than £17 extra.
In a statement on their website, the Merseyside outfit announced a number of changes to their ticket pricing for the 2023/24 season.
The club have stated that the decision was made due to the rise of costs, with Liverpool recently posting a small annual pre-tax profit of £7.5million.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are set to open their new Anfield Road Stand, which will boost capacity by 7,000 to 61,000, which will provide 1,000 extra season tickets.
Junior and local general sale tickets will remain at £9, though the majority of general admission matchday tickets will rise by two per cent.
No more than £17 will be added onto season ticket prices, with an increase of just £1 per game for Members’ match tickets.
It is understood that the LFC Supporters Board opposed the rise in prices, with the club stating they had little choice with annual operating costs for Anfield rising by 40 per cent, and utility costs going up by 100 per cent this campaign.

The last time that Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group announced a rise in prices was in 2016, which led to them performing a U-turn on their decision.
Fans staged a mass walkout at Anfield in the 77th minute during their clash against Sunderland, where 10,000 supporters left the game early.
The Liverpool faithful chose that minute as a symbolic gesture as the most expensive seat for the following campaign was priced at £77.
Pressure will be on for FSG to deliver success after the announcement, with fans desperate for heavy investment into the squad in the summer.
Supporters voiced their anger towards owner John W. Henry earlier this month after a banner was flown above Anfield prior to their 7-0 win over Manchester United.
Making their feelings known to the American billionaire, the banner read: “FSG OUT. KLOPP IN. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”
Henry recently stressed he remains ‘fully committed’ to Liverpool, despite it claimed last year how he was exploring the possibility of a full sale.
He told the Liverpool ECHO: “While we formalised a process that has identified potential investors for the club, we remain fully committed to the long-term success of the club.
“That has been the case since day one in 2010. Our efforts every day have been and continue to be focused on the long-term health and competitiveness of the club.
“Investment in the club is never for the short-term. This approach has been successful over the long haul with patience necessary from time to time.”
He added: “In regard to Liverpool Football Club our commitment remains stronger than ever.
“The club continues to make great progress with youth on the field and off.”
