Cape Town - Close to 1,000 Liverpool supporters chose to skip Tuesday's 1-0 away loss at Hull City to protest against the price of tickets for the game.
The move was interesting because it did not hurt the Tigers' pocket as the away end was sold out; the fans just didn't turn up for the game.
Liverpool fans' group Spirit of Shankly, who have long been associated with trying to reduce ticket prices, especially for away fans, were behind the boycott.
Hull manager Steve Bruce admitted before the game he felt sorry for fans of big clubs who were charged high prices every week.
"I feel sorry for the supporters of big clubs who have to dig deep every week and I hope when the new TV money comes into play the Premier League can remember football does belong to supporters," he said.
"I know how difficult it is for people here at our club to find the money to bring their two kids to a football match and we have to make sure with all the money washing around we give something back to the fans.
"We have to remember the average man in the street because they are the lifeblood of football and I think if the Premier League set certain rules we would all have to abide by them."
