      In choosing the 2000 via a season ticket holder lottery, is there any chance the club restricts a season ticket holder from say, London, from attending the match? Would it have to be only Merseyside residents? (understanding the person holding the ticket isn't always whose name is on it).

      Liverpool Football Club is planning to welcome supporters back to Anfield for the Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday December 6.

      Club planning for supporters to return at Wolves game
      Priority is public health and safety throughout new process
      2,000 tickets available
      Applications from Liverpool City Region only
      Paperless tickets using mobile phone technology
      Fans encouraged to take COVID-19 test ahead of game


      The Liverpool City Region has been placed in Tier 2 restrictions, so Anfield could be permitted to operate with a maximum of 2,000 supporters, in the interest of public health and safety.

      The club has been working closely with its city partners, Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police and Spirit of Shankly to create a robust plan which is in line with government guidance and prioritises the safety of the local community, supporters, staff, players and emergency services.

      Those plans will need to be ratified by the council’s Ground Safety Advisory Group next week.

      All city partners are encouraging those supporters who do attend this game to take a test either the day before or day of the game. Anfield’s Kop Bar will continue to be one of the city’s mass testing centres and will be open on matchdays.

      A minimum of 75 per cent of the 2,000 tickets available for the Wolves fixture will be used for general admission, which is aligned to the ratio used when the stadium is at full capacity. The remaining tickets will be allocated to hospitality supporters, players and to meet contractual obligations. Only Anfield’s Main Stand will be in use for the Wolves fixture.

      LFC will launch a ballot process to allocate the tickets available for this fixture. Guidance and support from the city’s public health team has outlined that the ballot will only be open to supporters who live within the Liverpool City Region. Supporters must also be a season ticket holder or current official Member with 19 credits from the 2018-19 Premier League season who have completed Fan Update.

      Ticket prices for games with a significantly reduced capacity will not be set at the usual price points. They are based on a weighted average of general admission and seasonal ticket prices across the stadium. An adult general admission ticket will cost £44.92 and concessional ticket prices will also be based on the same weighted average calculation.

      Fans can enter the ballot via an online system in the coming days, which will require them to provide their details and those they wish to attend with. Supporters will be allocated an individually-spaced seat to minimise the risk to public health and fellow supporters.

      Before entering the ballot, fans must refer to a new supporter code of conduct and, if successful, complete a health declaration questionnaire at the point of ticket purchase to ensure they comply with the new guidelines that will be in place to make Anfield as safe as possible for everybody present.

      The club will also be rolling out NFC technology to manage access and understand who is in the stadium. The use of NFC technology will allow fans to gain access to the stadium using an electronic ticket on their smartphone to minimise physical contact.

      The ticket ballot application process and supporter code of conduct will be launched in the coming days on a new dedicated website hub which will provide full guidance

      Wonder if this ballot is going to be a trial for the new ticketing process when things get back to normal. They were touting the idea of a ballot replacing some of the late sales in a survey they sent out last season. Was supposed to be a new ticketing platform being launched for this season too before all the COVID kicked off

      Think keeping it to 2 or 4k will be because of things like transport links and how congested the area is. Somewhere like Old Trafford could probably allow for a lot more with it being fairly out in the sticks and having decent transport links, whereas Anfield is slap bang in the middle of a residential area with a few bus routes and no train station for a couple of miles.

      This is spot on.  2,000 indeed isn't a lot inside the stadium but it's probably quite a lot before the match having a substantial meal in The Arkles/chippy/pie shop etc.

      If everybody dropped from space into their seat I'm sure a lot more could be accomodated but the world doesn't work like that.

      Yeah, it will be interesting to see what happens. Technically - at the moment - there are no season ticket holders because the club didn't sell any season tickets for this season, so it will be interesting to see what happens if/when they do decide to reinstate season ticketing and how they do it - ie do they just go back to those who had a season ticket last season or do it in a different way

      This is easy for me to say as I live in Australia but I reckon we should f**k the cu*ts off and boycott going back to the games until they sort this VAR sh*t off. Turning people off in their droves this fkn VAR..might make a statement that we find it totally unacceptable and it needs fixing or getting rid of straight away. I'm not just talking about our Club, talking about the others boycotting as well. Stick it right up them! So sick of getting ripped!!!!

      Definitely needs to be some form of organized action across the board. Think it would be impossible to have universal boycotts though as it's hard enough trying to organize a boycott at one club, let alone getting another 19 PL clubs on board.

      I think protests / banners would probably be the best way forward, maybe centred around the big TV fixtures once everything is back to normal. Best way for people to send a message without having to miss the match

      Good thinking mate! Banners, protests, get these bas**rds attention because ATM they just seem to be doing as they please on a weekly basis. No consistency at all!

      Frankly, there is more chance of snow falling in Darwin in December.

      Certain clubs fans who promote cheating and diving in our sport, tried the protest stunt at games halfway through last season. A snap, badly managed, disorganised VAR protest was held by the home fans during one game. When one of their opponents was dismissed for serious foul play in the second half on the advice of the VAR, the protest was laughed out of town. They didn't boycott though, they all still turned up to see fair play in action, until such time as they were locked out by something they knew nothing about.

      VAR is an irreversible part of the game, and it's doing the job it's supposed to do. It's just kept us in the position we started yesterday in, and it helped push us over the line last season. Wrong decisions are being corrected, so if you're waiting for VAR to go somewhere, you'll be waiting.

      The lucky ones successful for the Wolves game  are ineligible from attending future home games, until all those who miss out have attended a game instead. The Kop and Main Stand will be open for games, until the current limits change.

      2000 fans is a start. I can’t help but feel the atmosphere will be like a Sunday league football match though.
      Iv been to anfield when only 20,000 or so were there and the sounds and songs were crap.

      In many ways I think this was the defining match of our year given how much it spurred us and Origi on not just in the league but in Europe. And yes, when all is said and done, Pickford will only ever be remembered for that moment. No wonder he lashed out at Virgil the way he did when these images constantly plays on his mind. In front of a raucous Kop as well...oh dear Jordan.

      Or stand. Or sing. Or leave your seat. But you are expected to lock yourself up in a mini balaclava for 3-4 hours. In an outdoor environment, in the freezing cold. Given that I struggle to wear them for 3-4 minutes, it wouldn't be for me.

      By the sounds of things, there's no dignity about any of this at all. It will probably be more fun watching it the way we have since March.
