Liverpool have released details on the ticket ballot for next Wednesday’s top of the table Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.
The club say “We are looking forward to welcoming fans back to Anfield. Things will look a bit different to your last visit – here are our top six ‘need to know’ ahead of Wednesday.”
1. NFC mobile ticket only
2. Follow the Supporters Code of Conduct
3. Know your entry time
4. Keep your distance and wear a face covering
5. We are a cashless Stadium
6. No ticket… support us safely
NFC Mobile tickets only:
For the first time, we will be introducing NFC mobile tickets to manage access and understand who is in the stadium. This means you’ll be able to access the stadium on matchday using an electronic ticket on your smart phone, instead of a physical ticket or card.
Once you have purchased your ticket, you will need to go into the Tickets Section in My Account within the Ticketing System on your mobile phone, select your ticket and click to download the NFC pass. A full guide on how to complete this process and use the pass can be found here. Tickets are non-transferrable and cannot be forwarded on to another mobile phone.
Follow the Supporter Code of Conduct:
To ensure that Anfield is a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone we have developed a set of shared principles which we need supporters to adhere to; these are also known as a ‘Code of Conduct’. Some of the principles will be familiar to you as part of society’s ‘new normal’, others will be specific to football stadia, but they all have the same aim – to create a framework that acts in the best interests of those who attend matches.
By following Government and public health guidance you are playing your part to keep your friends, family, fellow fans, and the local community safe.
Know Your Entry Time:
In order to safely control the flow of fans around the ground, we have introduced designated access points for all supporters on matchday. Please ensure that you are only entering the stadium via the entry point stated on your NFC pass in order to minimise the risk to public health and fellow supporters.
Supporters with tickets for the Kop should enter via turnstiles A & B via Paisley Square next to the club shop entrance, and those in the Main Stand via the Main Stand Reception on 96 Avenue next to LFC TV Studio, where soft ticket checks will be carried out.
There are three staggered entry times for General Admission supporters, starting from 90 minutes before kick-off. If you’re a hospitality ticket holder, entry times will start from three hours prior to kick-off. Please only arrive at the stadium at the time specified on your NFC pass. Anyone arriving later than their requested time will be allowed entry but may be delayed while others enter at their allotted time.
You will also need to bring photographic ID with you for checks at the turnstiles before entry. Entry will not be permitted if proof of ID is not provided.
Before arriving at the stadium, please make sure that you have completed the health declaration form for yourself and those you are attending with 24 hours before kick-off.
Keep your distance and wear a face covering:
In order to protect yourself and others, supporters aged 11 and over must wear a face covering while on the stadium footprint queuing, on concourses, and in the LFC superstore. You may only remove your face covering whilst eating and drinking.
If you are medically exempt from wearing a face covering please download (to your phone) or print the exemption badge from the UK government website here to show our stewards should they ask to see it. If you have any problems accessing this exemption badge, please contact email@example.com so we can help you. Please note that unless you have an age, health, or disability reason for not wearing a face covering you may not be permitted access to the stadium.
At all times, and in all parts of the ground, you must observe social distancing and avoid close contact with others not in your household or support bubble.
We are a cashless stadium:
We are a cashless stadium – contactless and/or chip and pin payments are required in all areas. In line with current COVID-19 guideline and best practice, cash will no longer be accepted. Kiosks will be open inside the stadium, with a range of food options available. We will be operating a reduced number of till points, with Perspex screens now in place. Any food and drink bought on the concourses must be consumed at your allocated seat or viewing position to allow as much space in concourse areas as possible. Alcohol will NOT be available to purchase on the concourses in line with local restrictions.
Seat Serve will also be in operation throughout the stadium for you to buy food and drink and have it served directly to your seat – download the app here: http://anfield.seatserve.com/
