Several weeks ago, we had the opportunity to visit England and go to an EPL (English Premier League) match, well that was the plan until we looked at the ticket prices. The easiest part of our trip was getting to England, the hardest part was deciding where and how to get the tickets.

With so many options we want to thank Adam for providing us with the guide to buying Liverpool fc tickets on SafeFootball Tickets. Here is our experience
Option 1. Official Box Office.
The first port of call for any football fan looking for tickets is to contact the official box office. This is definitely the cheapest option and it’s worth contacting them consistently, ideally by phone. Many EPL teams have membership requirements which means that before purchasing tickets each person needs a membership account with the club. This costs from around £20 to £45 depending on the football club. We have been advised by the ticket office that tickets for all games are sold 3 weeks before and then during the week of the match. We were told to call every day as many teams have returns which means tickets may sell out.
Option 2: Official Supporters.
Another method recommended as a good option to get tickets was through the official fan clubs that are based around the world. We decided to contact the Liverpool supporters club in Minneapolis in the hope that they had some available. This would have been a great choice except that they had exhausted their allocation and fans have to make requests 4 weeks before the game. We had no luck but this is definitely recommended. the Liverpool Supporters club page has an extensive list of all pages.

Option 3: Secondary Websites.
When all else fails and the official websites are sold out, then the next step is to try dedicated football side websites. With so many websites online that all claim to be safe and secure, the difficulty is finding the best one to use.
Option 4: Away from Anfield
We managed to get the tickets delivered to our hotel in Liverpool so we didn’t need to buy the tickets outside. However, we did see some local vendors so it’s good to know in the future. We have seen fans buying tickets outside so this is always an option.
Option 5: Liverpool VIP Tickets
We were informed by the official club that the only tickets for sale were the official VIP seats which include food and drinks. The game we attended wasn’t great so we can’t justify paying £200 each on hospitality tickets with a meal included.
While we left our ticket search until the last minute it wasn’t too stressful an experience. With the help of these online guides we were able to find some reasonably priced seats. We paid £85 each for tickets delivered the night before the match. We were seated in the KOP Grandstand which offers a great atmosphere and view of the game.
If there are no football matches scheduled during your visit, it is recommended that you take a tour of the stadium which will give you an in-depth history of the club and a behind-the-scenes look.
