Fans discover surprising cost of prime tickets for Jurgen Klopp’s farewell at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp will bid farewell to Liverpool at the end of the season.

Liverpool’s last Premier League game of the current season is on Sunday 19 May, at home to Wolves and this will be Jurgen Klopp’s final game at Anfield.

Klopp confirmed his decision to leave the Reds on Friday morning after eight-and-a-half successful years at the helm.

He has led the club to triumphs in the Premier League, Champions League, Club World Cup, Super Cup, FA Cup, and the Carabao Cup, showcasing his inspiring influence on Liverpool during his tenure so far.

“I can understand that it’s a shock for a lot of people in this moment, when you hear it for the first time, but obviously I can explain it – or at least try to explain it”, the German told Liverpoolfc.com.

“I love absolutely everything about this club, I love everything about the city, I love everything about our supporters, I love the team, I love the staff. I love everything. But that I still take this decision shows you that I am convinced it is the one I have to take.

“It is that I am, how can I say it, running out of energy. I have no problem now, obviously, I knew it already for longer that I will have to announce it at one point, but I am absolutely fine now.

Liverpool fans will have their last chance of seeing Klopp at Anfield against Wolves, and emotions will be running high as they prepare to bid farewell to the beloved manager.

According to the Mirror, “Prime tickets for Klopp’s emotional final bow in front of the Kop are already fetching a whopping £18,000 on one black market website – and with VAT and a hefty service fee lumped on top, the final bill comes to £24,480.

“‌The seats are in Block L5 at the front of Anfield’s towering Main Stand, which are situated just behind the dugout.

“They are arguably the best in the house – but are sold by Liverpool for a face value of just £60. That means the resale website will bank a 40,700 percent profit.

“‌There are cheaper resale seats available for the game against Wolves on May 19 – but they are all commanding fees close to £2,000 before tax and booking charges are added on.”

Liverpool are currently competing for four titles this season after reaching the final of the Carabao Cup in midweek.

Klopp’s side will take on Norwich City in the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Anfield and have progressed to the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League after topping their group which included Toulouse, Union Saint-Gilloise, and LASK.

Liverpool are also top of the Premier League table with 48 points, five points ahead of defending champions Manchester City who have played a game less.
