Liverpool FC have launched new documentary ‘Off To The Match We Go’ reflecting on the last 17 months without a full capacity crowd at Anfield.
Reds from across the city and beyond share their own experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and explain how their love of the club has helped them cope during the challenging times.
Featured in the documentary is 90-year-old Peggy, who first attended Anfield in 1945, this has been her longest spell away from the stadium she loves in 75 years.
NHS nurse Jackie Hoare pays tribute to the heroes who were on the front line, risking their lives to help others, while Tony Caveney and Fans Supporting Foodbanks open up about their own selfless acts of community action when needed the most.
Local pub owners, Robbie Rogers and Tage Herstad, detail how the pandemic rocked the surrounding area, while life-long legendary supporter Jimmy Flowers reflects on the loss of precious matchday routines.
Looking ahead to this season, members of Spion Kop 1906, the Liverpool fan group devoted to organising iconic flag and banner displays at Anfield, set out their plans for the new season, and a return to normality.
The documentary will air on LFCTV on Wednesday 25 August at 9pm BST and will also be available to view on LFCTV GO.
