The report showed that Liverpool had a total of 580 million fans worldwide. Even if they are eighty million fans behind Manchester United, 580 million is still a lot of supporters!
However, very few of these fans have been able to watch their beloved football team in the flesh. Watching on TV or streaming from online casino sites seems to be the order of the day. Liverpool play their league matches in England and play Champions League matches across Europe during the week. Prior to the pandemic, Liverpool traveled to another continent to play pre-season games during the summer, but with travel restrictions in place at the moment, all of their games are taking place across the UK.
Fans are allowed to return to Premier League stadiums
It has been very difficult for fans to travel to Anfield to watch live since the Covid-19 outbreak. The Premier League has only started allowing fans to attend the final two games of the 2020-21 season. Without fans on the pitch, football hasn’t been the same. However, due to the rollout of the vaccine, stadiums are allowed to accommodate a certain number of fans inside the pitches. This is great news for those who love the club, especially those visiting Liverpool from abroad.
If you plan to watch a game this season you will need to produce details which show that you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and that fans must wear a mask at all times inside Anfield. Don’t assume you’ll find tickets readily available at the box office on game day. Lots of people want to attend games, so most games are sold out. Remember to register for your tickets online on the official Liverpool website.
Liverpool fans are known the world over for being die-hard supporters. The Kop is a section of the stadium where passionate Liverpool fans sing along, which can help create a unique and incredible atmosphere. Away teams often find these supporters intimidating and they have helped Liverpool win games on several occasions in the past. Anfield is an old stadium, so fans sit very close to the pitch. In the past, there were many stadiums like this, but nowadays most teams are developing modern stadiums where the fans seem to be seated away from the pitch. White Hart Lane, Highbury and The Boleyn Ground have all been replaced by new stadiums in recent years. Before it’s too late, you should consider watching a game at Anfield.
The locals, the residents
Liverpudlians are known everywhere for their personality, unique accent and humor. Many people who grew up in Liverpool are of Irish descent, so their personalities are often similar. They love to laugh and don’t take themselves too seriously unless they’re talking about football. Most of the locals are approachable and seem to like having a good time.
The club is like a big family, and most people around Liverpool know the club inside out unless they follow local rivals Everton. Many locals have a close connection to the club, so don’t hesitate to ask them about Liverpool FC. The mood around the club at the moment is very positive, with the team showing their strength to win trophies on a regular basis again.
You’ll have a fantastic night out in Liverpool, whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in the city centre. Some clubs only play house music and Liverpool attracts some of the best DJs in the world. Other clubs play drums and bass, popular songs and even reggae music. During the pandemic, many live acts have been forced to cancel in the city, but it looks like things are gradually getting back to normal. There are also many bars, cafes and restaurants.
In the UK you must be over 18 to legally consume alcohol, however some clubs only grant access to people over the age of 21 or 25. If you’re going to Liverpool and want to have a few drinks, be sure to bring ID. Children are welcome in the bars, provided an adult is present. Many clubs enforce a dress code, so make sure you look your best before heading to town. Don’t expect to walk into nightclubs with a football shirt.
Casinos and games of chance
In Britain, gambling laws seem to be relaxed. There are many traditional casinos around the city. If you fancy your luck, you should have no problem finding a land-based casino that is open all day and all night. Again, you may need to prove your age, so remember to bring ID with you.
Online gambling is legal throughout the UK, so you should have no problem accessing an online casino. Many fans like to place bets on Liverpool before watching them play live at Anfield to make the game even more exciting. Many sites are available that allow bettors to place bets on football matches taking place across the country.
Although flights, accommodation, match ticket, food and drink may cost you, watching one of the biggest clubs in action is a fantastic experience even for those who don’t like the sport.
Since the arrival of Jürgen Klopp, Liverpool has been a great success. Not only have they won the Premier League and Champions League since the German took over, but they’ve also played fast, attacking football the likes of which Liverpool fans haven’t seen since the 1980s. Nothing beats watching this Liverpool team in real life right now.
Who knows what the future holds for Liverpool, but in their current form most fans go home happy. There is a great stadium tour that most foreigners do the day after the game which will give you the chance to see some of the trophies the team have won and give you the opportunity to learn more about their rich story.
