Here is the key information for supporters attending Liverpool U23s' clash with Arsenal U23s at Anfield on Saturday, kick-off 4pm BST.

How do I use the NFC passes?

Liverpool Football Club is now using NFC technology to access Anfield. If this is your first visit to the stadium this season, you will need to use a smartphone to gain entry at the turnstiles, except for existing season ticket holders and Members who are currently in possession of a photo ID card. There will be no Print@Home or paper tickets.

Supporters are advised to download their NFC pass/digital ticket to their smartphone before arriving at Anfield. If you have purchased multiple tickets, these will need to be downloaded individually to your phone.

For all season ticket holders and Members: Please ensure you have already downloaded your seasonal NFC pass onto your smartphone. A guide can be found here.

For all non-season ticket holders and non-Members: Please ensure you follow this guide to download your NFC pass(es) onto your smartphone. 

If you are the lead booker and have purchased tickets for friends and family not registered on our ticketing system, please note the following to ensure that they will be able to access the stadium on matchday…

  • After logging in, go to My Account, select the ‘Tickets’ tab, select the transaction for the ticket you want to forward, then click ‘DISTRIBUTE’ and follow the on-screen instructions. An email will then be sent to the supporter with instructions on how to download their own ticket.
  • If supporters within your booking do not have a smartphone, you must download their ticket(s) to your own smartphone for them to gain access into the stadium on matchday. See our guide on how to do this.
  • We advise all supporters to download their pass(es) well in advance of travelling to Anfield on matchday.

Anfield Road is closed to all vehicles and pedestrian traffic as part of the club’s stadium expansion. Supporters can access the Kop from Stanley car park via 97 Avenue or via Arkles Lane.

Fans are reminded that Anfield is located in a residential area, so we ask that you respect residents by leaving quietly and taking any litter home with you. There is also a residents parking scheme in operation. Please do not park on residential streets as parking enforcement will be in operation during matchdays. Any illegally parked cars will incur a fine.

Will there be food and drink on offer?

Supporters can enjoy a pint inside the stadium at a temporary reduced price of £2.90.

The stadium is now cashless, so contactless and/or chip and pin payments are required in all areas.

What COVID-19 measures are in place?

To ensure everyone’s health and safety, we highly recommend that fans wear a face covering, wash or sanitise hands regularly, and maintain distance from fellow supporters where possible. Although no longer required by government guidance, we are still reminding fans about ‘hands, face, space’. Additional sanitiser is available around the stadium.

In line with our city partners at Liverpool City Council’s Ground Safety Advisory Group and Public Health Department, supporters are strongly recommended to take a lateral flow test 24 to 36 hours prior to kick-off and get double vaccinated.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and we look forward to welcoming you to Anfield.
