Fans' invite to launch of book putting boot into footy prices

By Staff Reporter

A football fan and author who sneaked into Premier League fixtures in protest at high ticket prices is inviting supporters from here to his book launch in England.

Merseysider Peter Farrell's book - Give The Fans Sweet FA - was written as a response to the soaring cost of following top clubs.

While the book is available on Amazon, its official launch takes place at the Marriott Hotel in Liverpool on Friday, June 3 - and Peter wants fans of local clubs represented.

The book, which follows Farrell's escapades as he tries to get into matches free, is proving a big hit with grassroots fans of the beautiful game.

His said the aim of the book was "to see football fans everywhere given the respect they deserve - after all, without us fans, there is no game".

Tickets to the launch go on sale tomorrow, and two fans from each team are invited, with tickets distributed on a first come, first served basis

They are priced at £10 with proceeds going to Stick n Step, a charity for children with cerebral palsy.

More information can be obtained at the Give The Fans Sweet FA page on Facebook.
