WHAT A DAY!!!  It felt like it had taken forever to arrive but it was finally here.  We all met up behind the new Liverpool Shop for 11.30am and everyone was in plenty of time and very excited about the day ahead.

The Liverpool FC Staff had our wristbands ready for us and we collected our audio guide for when we were on the tour.  We got to keep the ear phones when we finished too which was a bonus!

As the tour began we had to get an escalator up 6 flights to the main stand.  It was so high and hard to imagine that people climb the steps to their seats to see the Mighty Reds!

Before we went out to the stands we watched a video that had lots of clips of Liverpool’s amazing goals, Kathy was cheering, the atmosphere was electric and at the end Jurgen Klopp sent us on to the next part of the tour! 

As we stepped out on to the New Main Stand the view over the pitch was breath-taking.  Everyone was blown away and we took lots of pictures. 

The next part of the tour took us back into the stands and it is amazing at how vast they are, the bars the food stalls and then the behind the scenes areas.  We got to go in the visitors and players changing rooms – which were extremely luxurious, the press area, the players lounge – everywhere!  It was fantastic to see all the places the players go.

We finally made it to the pitch and it was out of this world.  It was hard to imagine what it would be like when it was full, it was a vast area.  We also got to sit in the legendary Kop!

We were also allowed to take some grass clippings and some people actually did (!).  A huge thank you to all of the Liverpool staff who were so friendly and helpful on the day.

Paul said “I’ve had a brilliant day, it was magic!  I want to see a match next!”
