Everton supporters have aired their frustration on Twitter after it was revealed that just 2,709 tickets have been made available for the Merseyside derby at Anfield on April 1.
Liverpool’s ground increased to 54,000 in capacity this season after the construction of the new Main Stand was finalised.
However, it seems as though Ronald Koeman’s side will only be allowed to take a small number of fans with them across Stanley Park.
It is not known why the allocation is so small, but toffeeweb.com claims that it is a slight improvement from the tickets made available for this encounter last season.
Initially, the blue half of Merseyside were only given 2,583 but that figure rose over the course of the day.
Everton supporters took to social media to vent their annoyance at the allocation, and others even suggested a boycott because of it.
@efc_fanservices still 291 short of our entitlement according to rules. How many are obstructed and severely obstructed?

@efc_fanservices Should be full allocation or else we don't play.

@efc_fanservices The question is have they reduced the away allocation just for this game or has it been like this all season?

@efc_fanservices why has this been changed, and why isn't it more?
