LFC to mark the Queen's passing

Published 12th September 2022

Liverpool Football Club will mark the passing of Her Majesty The Queen at Tuesday's Champions League tie against AFC Ajax.

Players, officials, staff and supporters will come together for a period of silence before kick-off. Players will also wear black armbands as a mark of respect.

Flags at Anfield have been lowered to half-mast and will remain so throughout the full mourning period. The club crests on all social media platforms have also changed to black and white, representing the colours of the mourning period.

Her Majesty The Queen visited Anfield in 1993 when she officially opened the Centenary Stand in LFC’s 100th year. Many of the club’s players and managers were honoured by the Queen, including Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Gerard Houllier, Emlyn Hughes, Roger Hunt, Ian Callaghan, Sir Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, John Barnes, Steven Gerrard and, more recently, Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

As shown in the photograph above, the Queen famously presented Reds captain Ron Yeats with the FA Cup at the Wembley final against Leeds United in 1965 – the first time Liverpool won the competition.

LFC would like to thank supporters in advance of Tuesday’s fixture for marking the Queen’s passing at Anfield.
