But first, whose side are you on?
For any football novices out there, you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. Liverpool is home to two of the most famous teams, Liverpool FC and Everton FC. Liverpool FC, often known as the ‘reds’, is one of the most successful clubs in the history of English and European football, winning five European cups, three UEFA Cups, 18 League titles and much more. Founded in 1892, Liverpool FC’s home turf is Anfield, and is renowned for its exhilarating atmosphere. Liverpool’s fans are known for being the loudest and rowdiest in English football, and never miss an opportunity to sing a rousing rendition of the team’s iconic anthem, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.
Meanwhile, Everton FC also has its own loyal fan base who regularly turn out to watch the ‘Toffees’ play at Goodison Park. Founded in 1878, Everton FC is one of the oldest and most successful clubs in England, competing in the top division for a record 113 seasons and winning the League Championship nine times. They are long-time rivals of Liverpool FC and matches between the two teams are sell-out events. It’s well worth getting trying to get tickets to one of these infamous games!
For the reds: Head to Anfield
For the blues: Over to Goodison Park
