MatchImportant information for fans attending matches at Anfield

There have been a few important updates regarding your matchday experience that are outlined below. Please read carefully before you head to Anfield.

To stay up to date with all the latest matchday information, please follow @LFCHelp on X.


Upper Anfield Road

Earlier this year, following an application to the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA), safe standing is only permitted in areas of Anfield with rail seating.

Seats without rail seating are not licensed for safe standing. This includes the new Anfield Road upper tier. During the match fans must remain seated other than significant moments in the match such as goal celebrations.

Anfield Road access for this match – home and away fans

The Anfield Road Stand is still under construction and we would like to thank fans for their patience attending matches during the building works.

Home fans:

Supporters will enter via turnstiles M, N, O, and P and can approach from either end of Anfield Road and from Dahlia Walk.

Please be aware there is no lift access to reach the upper tier for supporters. Any fan with mobility issues in this part of the ground should contact the Disability Team prior to attending the stadium on 0151 264 2500, selecting the disability option.

Accessible access for home fans for lower Anfield Road will be the accessibility gate DA4 located between the Sir Kenny Dalglish and Anfield Road stands.

Away fans:

Preferred access to the stadium for visiting fans entering via Q and R turnstiles is from Anfield Road from the direction of 97 Avenue. However, access along Anfield Road is now fully open to all supporters on matchdays.

Accessible access for away fans for lower Anfield Road will be the accessibility gate DA6 located on Anfield Road, from the direction of 97 Avenue.

Tackling antisocial and criminal behaviour

LFC is supporting strong measures across football to tackle antisocial and criminal behaviours within football grounds – including entering the pitch without permission, tragedy chanting and carrying or using smoke devices or pyros.

These are illegal, dangerous and have serious consequences. They have no place in the game. Anyone involved in these activities will be banned by the club and reported to the police. Love Football. Protect the Game.

Flag and banner policy

During previous matches, LFC stewards requested that a number of flags and banners from across the political and national spectrum be removed as they didn't meet the club's flag and banner policy, and the additional guidance from the Premier League.

These included flags containing direct calls to action, political statements, national flags and flags that could have caused disquiet, no matter how inoffensive they may seem.

It's important to follow the rules of the governing bodies of football and ensure that safety remains the number one priority for all supporters who come to Anfield.

The current LFC flag policy is that commercially produced flags under 2m x 1m with a small pole (less than 7mm diameter and less than 1m long) will be allowed in all areas of the stadium.

Flags and banners over 2m x 1m may be allowed into the Kop stand or visitors section providing they have an accompanying fire safety certificate and agreement has been requested by the club and given prior to the fixture taking place.

In addition to Anfield's long-standing flag policy, and following consultation with safety and security experts, it has been determined that Israeli and Palestinian flags should not be permitted to be displayed at football matches for the foreseeable future and the same approach can be applied to other displays, banners, clothing or scarves identified as pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian or related to the current crisis.

This season's ground regulations can be found here.

Smoking or vaping

Anfield is a no-smoking football stadium. Any person who smokes inside the stadium will be ejected. This includes electronic cigarettes and vapes.

Updated bag policy & storage facilities

There is a new bag policy for this season. For safety and security purposes, ONLY the following bags are permitted entry into the stadium:

  • Small handheld bag which does not exceed A5 size (148.5 x 210 mm/5.8 x 8.3 inches)
  • LFC superstore clear carrier bag containing superstore purchases only

Oversized bags larger than A5 will only be permitted at the discretion of LFC if containing medication and/or medical equipment that cannot fit inside an A5-size bag. All bags permitted will be subjected to a bag search on entry point.

Please report anything suspicious while in and around the ground to your nearest steward or police officer.

There will be a bag drop facility for anything that is not permitted into the stadium located directly opposite the Kop at Christ Church, 157 Hartnup Street, L5 1UW.

This facility will be managed by LFC Foundation and small bags up to holdall size cost £5 and suitcases or very large bags cost £10. All monies raised will be donated to the Foundation and, in line with Anfield, payment is card only.

The facility will open three hours before kick-off for this match and close one hour after the final whistle. LFC accepts no responsibility for loss or damage, items left at owners' risk and all bags will be subject to security search.

All supporters are reminded that there are no storage facilities for walking aids or wheelchairs inside the stadium. Any fans who use a wheelchair or walking aid to get to the stadium on matchday should contact the disability ticketing team on 0151 264 2500 or contact via email on The specialist team will assist with any requirements relating to access. This does not include those supporters who have already been allocated a wheelchair bay.
