Ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League match against Atletico Madrid at Anfield, Liverpool FC would like to remind supporters that flares, smoke bombs and pyrotechnics are illegal and prohibited.

Any individual who is found taking these into the stadium is liable to arrest. The use of such devices breaches ground safety regulation and poses serious risk of injury to fellow fans, including serious health risks. Pyro detection dogs will be in operation at the turnstiles.

Should pyrotechnic devices be ignited during the game, this could lead to sanctions being imposed on the club, as well as the activation of fire alarms and subsequent evacuation of the stadium and abandonment of the match. We would like to remind supporters of the serious consequences they will face surrounding the possession or use of pyrotechnics and any other illegal items.

Liverpool Football Club would like to thank in advance supporters who show their support in a friendly, respectful and considerate manner.
