News From Liverpool: When and where the Liverpool FC team bus arrives on matchdays at Anfield

There have been some memorable welcomes for the Liverpool team bus at Anfield in recent years.

Fans are particularly keen to greet the players for big European nights or important Premier League encounters.

Here, we explain where you can welcome the team bus on matchdays.

The Liverpool team bus, its actually two buses as of 2022, arrives down Anfield Road to the corner of the Main Stand and Anfield Road End.

It then enters the stadium and parks up by the players entrance, neither of which are accessible to supporters.

Stewards ensure the roads close to Anfield are kept clear and the bus is escorted into the stadium.

Typically, the bus will arrive at Anfield just 75 minutes before kickoff. Get there around 90 minutes before kickoff is our advice.

Yes. Supporters are able to greet the coach on Anfield Road and the surrounding streets.

For the biggest games, supporters create a sea of red as the team arrives, lining the streets with flags and flares as the bus nears the stadium.

Plans are sometimes organised among supporters to welcome the team at certain times in certain areas.

Some Liverpool players have filmed the scenes from inside the bus in the past.

You cant miss it.

Having travelled in a black, neutral coach with no Liverpool branding prior to Jurgen Klopps arrival, the manager decided he wanted something that stood out and represented the club in a clearer fashion.

The bus is bright red with the words We Are Liverpool and Youll Never Walk Alone printed across the sides.

It was first introduced in January 2017 and remains the coach the Liverpool team travels on for home and away matches.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the team have actually arrived in two coaches the red one and the black undecorated one.

It is highly unlikely that the bus will change its course or arrive in a different area as the redevelopment of the Anfield Road End nears completion.

After construction is complete, Anfield Road itself will allow cars from the other direction again, where the team bus used to arrive from, driving past The Arkles pub, so the entry route could change back to that again.

Work on the stand remains on track to be completed in the summer of 2023.
