As part of the club's ongoing preparations for the potential return of supporters to the stadium in the future, we would like to provide an update to fans on the current situation.
It was expected that the opening fixtures of the 2020-21 season would take place behind closed doors until at least October at the earliest, with the likelihood that stadiums would then initially operate at reduced capacity in line with social distancing measures. As of the end of September, this plan was postponed due to increasing cases of COVID-19 nationally.
However, as the situation continues to evolve and remains subject to change, we are continuing to work hard to ensure that when the time is right for spectators to return, we are in the best possible position to welcome fans back to Anfield while ensuring a safe environment for everyone in attendance.
As such, we are currently working on a number of new processes and systems, which will be introduced in the coming weeks, that will enable us to be properly prepared to welcome fans back to Anfield as safely and efficiently as possible, when government guidelines allow.
We will provide more information on this and will be contacting fans regarding these upcoming changes in due course.
We will continue to keep supporters updated with all 2020-21 season developments and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
