Steven Gerrard’s impending exit from Liverpool has made Saturday’s Premier League game at Anfield between the Reds and Crystal Palace the hottest ticket in town.
Some tickets for Gerrard’s final Anfield appearance are selling for almost £2,000 ($3,139) on online ticket markets, according to The Liverpool Echo and The Mail. Fans will fill Anfield to its 45,522-seat capacity for Liverpool’s final home game of the 2014-15 season in order to bid Gerrard the fondest of farewells, as he ends his 17-year career in the Reds’ first team.
The Echo reports ticket website ticketbis.net is offering single tickets for as high as £1,985.53 ($3,114) and as low as £234.41 ($368). The site is advertising a pair of seats for £5,000 ($7848).
Liverpool is offering tickets for much less than their going rate on the secondary market. Ticket prices for Liverpool-Crystal Palace, a “category C” game, range from £37 ($58) – £49 ($77).
The lifelong Liverpool fan and longtime club captain will be full of emotion Saturday, and fans might feel the same way, regardless of how much they pay for tickets.
