Here is the key information supporters attending Liverpool's Premier League clash with Chelsea at Anfield this Saturday need to know.
For anyone who did not attend the first home league game versus Burnley, please note stadium entry is now digital using an NFC ticket. This means all supporters in attendance at a fixture held at Anfield will use NFC tickets unless they have requested a photo ID card to access the stadium. There will be no Print@Home or paper tickets.
Supporters are reminded to download their digital ticket on to their NFC pass to their smartphone before arriving at Anfield.
A video with full guidance can be viewed below. App users should tap here to watch.
There will also be a number of NFC help desks around the stadium to give fans quick and easy support if they do experience any issues with their digital tickets. The Kop Bar is also operating as a central hub where supporters can go for technical advice and support. This will be open from 2.30pm on Saturday and the ticket office will be open from 11am. There will also be additional pop-up help desks around the ground.
Arrive early and plan your travel
Supporters are encouraged to arrive at least 90 minutes before kick-off to avoid queues and allow for checks and search procedures. Queues may be likely the closer to kick-off you arrive. Turnstiles for general admission will open at 3.30pm.
It is also advised to plan your journey to and from the stadium, and view the updated travel map and route planner here.
Fans are also reminded that Anfield is home to many people, 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.
Advised entry times
A temporary measure of advised entry times will be in place for supporters, to safely control the flow of fans around the ground. The advised times can be found here.

Visit us safely
Although no longer required by government guidance, it is recommended that fans wear a face covering and maintain distance from fellow supporters where possible when entering and leaving the stadium and in and around the concourses.
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.
Food and drink
To welcome fans back to Anfield, the price of a pint inside the stadium has been temporarily reduced to £2.90 for this game.
Food and drink will be served in the stadium. However, there will be no food containers outside for the Chelsea fixture.
Liverpool Football Club would like to remind all supporters of its commitment to ensure Anfield remains an environment that continues to provide a welcome to all supporters, and the club will take the strongest possible action against any discriminatory behaviour in the terraces.
