Fans of Liverpool FC can now abseil more than 100ft down the side of the main stand at Anfield. Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool FC stars Harvey Elliott Diogo Jota and Calvin Ramsay abseiled down the main stand at Anfield to launch a new attraction.
Costing £38 for young people aged 10-17 and £45 for adults, the The Anfield Abseil will allow fans to abseil more than 100ft down the side of the main stand at the world famous stadium.
The three players were joined by LFC staff, who were the first to take part in the exhilarating new challenge that allows people to experience Anfield from a completely different perspective.
It begins with a climb up stairs to the top of the main stand roof, where they are greeted by stunning panoramic views across the city from one of the highest points on Merseyside.
Each participant is expertly strapped in to all the necessary safety gear, before leaning back over the edge of the very top of the Main Stand and abseiling 100ft down its side. Thrill-seekers also get to touch the club’s huge official crest as they make your way to the ground.
This new experience is available through LFC Stadium Tours & Experiences and can be booked via the website here. Participants must be at least ten years old to take part.
People will also receive a souvenir wristband, free entrance to The Liverpool FC Story Museum worth £10 for adults, £6 for children, and full safety briefing and abseil equipment on the day.
There is also a 10% discount promo code for Season Ticket Holders and LFC Official Members: MEMB10ABSEIL. Visitors will be required to present an NFC pass on their smartphone on arrival at the stadium to verify the offer.
