Fans return to Anfield for final game of the season

Liverpool FC have announced that supporters will be welcomed back to Anfield for its final Premier League match of the season against Crystal Palace on Sunday 23rd May.

Government plans outline that from Monday May 17, large outdoor sporting venues where crowds can spread out will be able to welcome back 10,000 spectators. Anfield could therefore be permitted to operate with a maximum of 10,000 supporters, in the interest of public health and safety.

A statement on the club website reads:

The club has been working closely with 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.

The club has opened a ballot process to allocate the tickets available for this fixture. Supporters must enter the ballot before 8am BST on Monday May 10.

Guidance from the government only allows for travel across the UK, meaning the ballot is only open for registration to all supporters who live within the UK. This is subject to any travel restrictions should they be introduced.

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 and must not have attended one of the three games played in front of supporters in December 2020.

Due to this game having a significantly reduced capacity, ticket prices will be set at the price points used for the three games attended by fans back in December. 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. This will require them to provide their details and those they wish to attend with. Fans can register up to four people in one transaction or as an individual.
