London - British Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed concern about the price of tickets for Premier League games after Liverpool fans staged a mid-match walkout.

Cameron was asked in the House of Commons on Wednesday about plans by the Football Supporters' Federation to advocate mass walkouts at games in protest over ticket prices.

Cameron responded by saying "there is a problem here where some teams and some clubs put up prices very rapidly every year, even though so much of the money for football actually comes through the sponsorship and the equipment."

Premier League clubs are preparing for the start of new three-year television deals worth around £8.3 billion.

Thousands of Liverpool supporters left their Anfield seats in the 77th minute of last Saturday's game against Sunderland to protest the hike in some tickets prices to £77 pounds.
