Away Day Guide – Liverpool
We’re safe, but we’re injury-struck. There are still points to play for, though, and as a ground that few fans will have ever witnessed us win at, a big three point at stake. Here’s our away day guide.
Fulham fans can purchase tickets in person for this fixture from the ticket office until 5pm on Tuesday 2 May.
GETTING TO ANFIELD
Remain on the M62 until the end of the motorway, where you should stay on the right and follow the signs for ‘Football Stadia’ along the A5058 Ring Road (North). After around three miles, take a left at the traffic lights (where the McDonald’s will loom into view) into Utting Avenue. Stay on Utting Avenue for a mile and then turn right at the Arkles pub for Anfield.
Fulham fans should be advised that there is no longer ample parking at Stanley Park as these facilities are reserved for permit holders only and the streets surrounding the stadium are within a strictly-monitored residents’ parking zone. The nearest place to park for visiting fans to Anfield is actually at Goodison Park (£10), although The Dockers’ Club at Waterloo Dock on Townsend Lane (A580) has offered £5 parking this season. It is about a 15-minute walk from the Dockers’ Club to the ground.
Most Fulham fans will arrive at Liverpool Lime Street on trains from London. Lime Street is about two miles from Anfield so, whilst walking is an option, a taxi (approximately £8) or making use of Kirkdale or Sandhills stations are probably more suitable options. Kirkdale is closer to Anfield than Sandhills, but the latter has the benefit of being ideally located for the use of the special Soccerbuses that run on a matchday (£3.50 return for adults, £1.50 juniors). Supporters should ask for a return to Anfield as the train ticket is then valid for the Soccerbus as well.
The official club coaches will leave Craven Cottage and Motspur Park at 12.30pm on Wednesday afternoon.
Many pubs in Liverpool City Centre will cater to away fans, but some will ask visiting supporters to cover up any colours. The designated away pub is The Arkles, a brilliant Greene King venue, on Anfield Road (77 Anfield Road, Anfield, Liverpool L4 0TJ). It usually gets very busy on matchdays so if, you are looking for a pre-match pint, it is advisable to get there early.
