      I'm finally coming to the Liverpool
      Jan 15, 2024 06:01:25 pm
      The fam and I are getting closer to book our Liverpool trip. I live in Virginia, USA. Looking at 7 days in Liverpool and 3 days in London. I wanna try and see thebReds pkay atleast twice while we're there, and maybe take in a non league side just for fun. At this point we will wait for next year's schedule to drop and then plan around that. I will need pointers and tips from all of you.

      That sounds really exciting for you - I remember my first time in Liverpool like yesterday!

      Just a word of warning, getting tickets won't be easy - even with a membership you need to get lucky in a ballot to get one. I never bought from unofficial sellers but I imagine it will be expensive. Maybe there will be people here able to help you with this.

      As for a non-league club, there are plenty in the area, my suggestion would be City of Liverpool FC, the 'Purples' (or 'Purps') who play in Bootle. I've got lots of friends among the fan base.

      There's plenty of stuff to do in Liverpool too apart from football, depending on your tastes; especially if you're a Beatles fan!

      Congratulations.

      1) Do consider getting those few hundred pounds hospitality tickets for your entire group. Me sure you’ll have a great day out. Some packages expose you to legends as well. We need every funding for that particular marquee transfer - KM. So be sure to up your match day spending and buy everything up at the club store! Don’t forget the tours as well.

      2) we all know matches get moved for live broadcasts all the time. Am sure you will plan sufficient buffer days to cater for that.

      3) you might want to be at the team hotel on match day to catch the team walking about.

      4) don’t go across the park! It looks near. But the distance between the two clubs is top of the league and somewhere at the relegation zone! Just kidding. Take a tourist visit!

      How much is a ticket? Any chance at 8 together?  How bout 4? I gotta imagine I'm going to pick one of the lower level premier teams, just due to demand

      b***ard.

      Enjoy it. I might get over there next summer, but probably only for a day or so in Liverpool itself and there won't be any games when we are likely there.

      Yes you can! Me thinks… Me recommend hospitality experience. It’s like a fast pass with a guaranteed match ticket. But it requires you to pay up.

      We are Liverpool, unlike other stadiums which I shall not name, where the venue is too big for the club to sell out. So one way to get a guaranteed match ticket is via the hospitality side. https://hospitality.liverpoolfc.com/

      Call the hospitality office. I believe there is a pay first and take a refund later system, in case you cannot make it to the match for certain reasons. Check the terms before booking your tickets.

      It makes sense for any business to discriminate pricing for locals vs tourists. Even some theme parks have a local discounted rate - to get tourists to pay a premium and encourage locals to keep visiting. Unfortunately, this Anfield matchday is a very popular product and demand almost always outstrips supply. So me advice to you is just head straight for hospitality.

      FSG is gonna love me for this. How many times in a lifetime you get to be at Anfield on match day? Therefore just pay up and don’t think too much! You can earn back your money. But you may not want to miss out on the experience. If you ain’t buying hospitality, someone else will!

      As I’ve already said for some time, this is after all a “live entertainment” business - broadway, west end, NBA, WWE etc. they’re all the same. While you need a decent cast and good script, overpaying for KM will not improve the business by leaps and bounds. Rather the certainty is overspending. Therefore me is almost certain that KM will never happen for us. We underspend for transfers and overdeliver.

      It will be interesting to see how ticketing pans out with the new Anfield Road stand. 

      As other posters point out, if you are coming from the other side of the world, then you may as well stump up for the hospitality.

      Hospitality is effectively a match ticket and a pre match meal. Oh, and a programme, if you're really lucky, you might even get two programmes. Not much else except expense, the "prices" are enough to make you want to go to hospital. Whatever currency you're paying for it in, it's only to be considered when all alternative options are completely and utterly exhausted.

      Prices are roughly £30 in a small section of upper Annie, upto £60ish.
      It's hard enough getting a pair of tickets so you'll never get 8 unless you buy hospo from the club.

      And if the sh*t truly hits the fan and getting tickets isn't happening could be worth looking to see when there's a legend's match you could attend.

      Usually within an international break and tickets end up on general sale. Gets you the Anfield experience and you won't be stressing like F**k about the outcome  ;)

      League schedule drops next Tuesday. I'll be doing everything I can to book my two boys, my wife, and I a ticket together. Might try and catch an away game aswell if it's doable. Gonna do Liverpool for 5 days and London for 3. If anyone lives in the city it would be dope to meet up. Also gonna need tips on the city, game day, travel, etc.

      Just left Liverpool this morning. Only got to stay one night, we are down in the Cotswolds now. Can’t wait to go back for a longer trip. We had a great 24 hours. Didn’t get to do as much as we’d have liked but just didn’t have much time due to schedule. Didn’t get to do a tour of Anfield because of Taylor Swift coming to town next weekend but got to see Anfield from the outside and snagged a hat from the shop. We stayed at this apartment style place right by Liverpool One. It was called Cove at Paradise Street. Great location with plenty of options for food and shopping nearby. Took the Magical Mystery Tour bus tour with Dale and Dennis. Probably the best tour I’ve ever been on. Like I said, definitely going back at some point.

      No, I wanted to but just didn’t have the time. Liverpool Cathedral is just an eye popping building. Almost incomprehensible in its scale.

      Yea, we spent our first three days driving….left Dublin and stayed the night in Killorglin, checking Rock of Cashel and a couple of other things on the way, next day went to the Cliffs of Moher and then up to Donegal, left Donegal and headed out for a quick stop in Derry and drove through Belfast and then back towards Dublin. Stayed in County Meath and drove in to Dublin for the evening and then flew out the morning after. It was kind of exhausting but it I’m glad we kept moving and got to see a lot of the country.  When we come back, we can maybe plan a longer stay. Ireland is just a beautiful country (as is England so far). My oldest is ready to love there already, he was looking at house prices. 😂

      Just left Liverpool this morning.

      Wowzer.  Swear it was only a couple of weeks ago you were asking for some tips - thought it was a bit further off in the planning!  By the way, it is usually a lot warmer in this country in June.  We've got some weird Spring weather at the moment. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
