      I know there's not many Americans on here but seen this kicking around the internets,https://kopcon.org/.It's not my cup of tea but could be Liverpool in the champions league final that weekend!

      Hi Mate

      As you may have guessed from the username I am involved in organising the event. Didn't plan on doing it on Champions League weekend it was supposed to originally be in August but it had to get moved forward. Would be some party if we won it!

      Do ya have a feeling for the numbers ya might get yet? I wonder if some of the americans might shy away cos of no official club involvement.Be interesting to follow anyways,good luck with it.

      Interest has been good so far and we have made a solid start to ticket sales. Target is at least 250-300.

      I saw the Celtic fans singing YNWA at the pool party at their Vegas conference on youtube and thought there's no reason we cant do something like that in North america for LFC, there is so many reds in USA and Canada. I contacted a few more influential people than myself about the possibility of putting on an event and it went from there. We had a few calls with the Celtic organisers who were brilliant and a lot of help.

      If this first event is successful then it will be much bigger next year, with some bigger names coming out.

      So yeah, getting Marc Kenny to perform was a big one. A lot of players were willing but wanted to stay within a moderate budget. Terry Mac is the biggest name, but The Doc is a good bloke and he may bring his medals for photo oppurtunitys. Howard Gayle, by no means an LFC legend on the pitch, but a legend in other ways being our first black player. Solid line up for a first event and i'm happy with what we have achieved.

      It should be a hell of a weekend, especially if we get to Madrid!

      And yes, its not an official club event, but we did make them aware of the plans and there was no problem there.

      Saying that, some of the people involved behind the scenes are big hitters in the North American LFC community, its hardly been thrown together by some random fans.
