This weekend, Anfield will say goodbye to a legend of the English game… and tickets are being sold for silly money.
Steven Gerrard will say farewell at the end of the season to the club he has represented for over 17 years.
Arguably Liverpool’s greatest ever servant, Gerrard turned down moves to Real Madrid and Inter Milan in recent years as he instead chose to stick with his boyhood club.
Liverpool play their final home game of the season on Saturday evening as they take on Crystal Palace at Anfield. The game itself is now an irrelevant fixture in terms of the league as last weekend’s results essentially ended Liverpool’s hopes of a Champions League place.
However, the 90 minutes against the Eagles has now gained huge sentimental value as The Reds will say farewell to their greatest player (ever?) in recent memory. The man who almost single handedly dragged them to Champions League glory in 2005.
The price of tickets for the Reds’ home clash with Palace ranged from £179.01 to £1,258.63 on secondary ticketing websites on Tuesday evening according to the good folks over at Football365.
The Palace game is classed as a ‘Category C’ fixture and tickets for the fixture would normally cost between £37 and £49.
Gerrard is set to play his final game for Liverpool away to Stoke the following weekend. Apparently you have to provide a pound of flesh to get seats in the away end for that one.
