Liverpool ‘hopeful of September trophy parade’ as crunch talks take place – Latest News

The main sticking point is concerns about overcrowding at entrances and on public transport, rather than fans watching in the stadiums themselves.

Talks over allowing a limited number of fans into Anfield are ongoing but the timeline is more optimistic than previously assumed.

It has previously been reported that Liverpool council believed that even with the reduced 1m social distancing rules, a parade would be impossible to police safely.

Liverpool are hopeful that they will be able to parade their Premier League trophy around the city in September following crunch talks with the Government.

It was previously thought that any potential title parade will not take place this summer and could even run into next year.

That would also dramatically increase the likelihood of at least some Liverpool fans celebrating their title triumph at Anfield in mid-September.

Yet according to the Daily Mail, if the number of cases of coronavirus infections continues to fall, then there is a realistic chance of fans attending games at the start of next season in September.

A spokeswoman said: “We are looking at plans on how a title win can be celebrated fully and would honour the club’s and fan’s ambitions to have a parade – this will only happen when it is safe to do so, lockdown restrictions have eased and the infection rate of the virus has been reduced.”

Speaking to the Liverpool ECHO, Mayor Anderson said he was devastated that the actions of some fans have undermined what should be a brilliant moment for the city.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson has said he was ‘in tears’ watching violence unfold.

Thousands of fans descended on the streets around Anfield after the Reds were crowned champions on Thursday night, and while most were well-behaved, there were reports of fighting and anti-social behaviour.

“And the vast majority of fans did the right thing and celebrated at home – but sadly this has been undermined by the actions of some.

He said: “I spent a lot of yesterday talking about what an incredible achievement this was for Liverpool FC and what it means for the city.

“We wanted to tell everyone the story of what Liverpool FC has achieved – but sadly we have woken up to negative headlines about the city, I’m, just exhausted by it to be honest.”
