Arsenal legend set to join fans in ticket price protest

Posted by

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has told the club’s fans that he will march with them in solidity if they decide to stage a protest against ticket prices this weekend, according to the Metro.

Liverpool’s fans staged an impressive mass walkout during the 77th minute of last weekend’s meeting with Sunderland after news broke of the club’s intention of raising ticket prices at Anfield next season.

But the Gunners have both the most expensive match day tickets and season tickets in the Premier League, with the costliest coming in at an eye watering £2013.

Arsenal take on Leicester this weekend, and Foxes fans are urging their counterparts to join them in boycotting the first five minutes of the game after it was rescheduled for television.

And Keown has confirmed that he will join in the protest if fans decide to go ahead with it.

“Jamie Carragher made a stand by joining in the Anfield protests last week and if there was a similar one at Arsenal, I would follow suit,” said Keown.

“The clubs have to support what the majority of fans want and it’s time to stand up for them.

“It’s hard-earned money that’s being spent and fans travel the length and breadth of the country to support their teams. They deserve to have their voices heard.”
