Ahead of the Reds’ Champions League and Premier League fixtures against Spartak Moscow and Everton this week, Liverpool FC would like to remind fans that flares, smoke bombs and pyrotechnics are illegal and prohibited.

Any individual who is found taking these items to Anfield will face prosecution and will be banned. 

Please be aware that trained sniffer dogs will be in use in and around the stadium to detect pyrotechnic devices. The use of such devices breaches ground safety regulations and poses serious risk of injury to fellow fans including serious health risks.

Although there has been a decrease in the use of these illegal items, there has been some instances recently where they have been used. The club would like to remind supporters of the serious consequences they may face surrounding the use of pyrotechnics.

Should pyrotechnic devices be ignited during the game, this could lead to the activation of fire alarms and subsequent evacuation of the stadium and abandonment of the match.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping Anfield a safe and welcoming environment for all fans.
