Show your support for the Reds and get your hands on a Liverpool scarf or football shirt for the match. If you forget, head to the Liverpool Retail Store on Walton Breck Road before kick-off.

Make sure to take any cash out that you need for the day as there are no cash points in the stadium. Anfield Stadium is a cashless venue; you will need to use card or contactless methods to pay throughout the stadium.

Liverpool Lime Street Station has great train connections throughout the country and is located only two and a half miles away from Anfield Stadium.

Alternatively, you may travel into Liverpool Central Station, only slightly further away from the stadium.

How do I get from Liverpool Lime Street to Anfield? The 917 bus service runs for up to 3.5 hours before kick off on matchday. Hop on the bus from St John’s Lane (opposite Liverpool Lime Street) and have a quick and easy trip to the stadium.


From Liverpool City Centre, take the 26 or 27 from Liverpool one bus station or 17 from Queen Square Bus Station directly to the ground.


Taxis are reasonably priced from Liverpool City Centre to the stadium (usually coming in at under £10).


We do not recommend travelling by car to Anfield Stadium due to a lack of parking facilities.

Please also note that Anfield road will close four hours prior to kick-off and Walton Breck Road will close 90 minutes prior to kick-off.


Many supporters are seen walking the nearby roads to Anfield rather than taxing the bus or taxi. This is the perfect opportunity to get in the matchday spirit with your fellow fans!

How early should I get to Anfield Stadium?

Liverpool FC recommend arriving at the stadium at least 45 minutes before kick-off to ensure enough time to get into the venue and find your seat.

However, first-time visitors may want to arrive earlier to soak up the pre-match atmosphere and get a feel for what Anfield has to offer!

If you have a hospitality ticket for the match then you will get into the gameday spirit with lounge and bar access as well as catering options before kick-off. Leave plenty of time to enjoy all of your VIP perks!
