The BVB faithful feel ticket prices at the Imtech Arena are unfair to visiting supporters, and have planned a protest to make their feelings known about the matter
will have to make do without the support of 1,000 fans for Saturday's game at Hamburg
, as they prepare to stage a boycott against high ticket prices.
The cheapest available tickets for away supporters are €19, whereas HSV charge €14 for matches against 'lesser' teams, and fans of the Bundesliga champions are unhappy with the price discrimination.
Therefore, a considerable section of 7,000 travelling BVB fans will leave the stadium immediately after the first whistle to express their dismay - a course of action that coach Jurgen Klopp believes benefits no-one.
"It would be a strong action from the fans. However, there are no winners in this scenario," he told reporters.
Tickets for visiting fans at Dortmund start at €15.30, regardless of the opponents.
