LFC set a goal on Thursday 10th September 2020; to try and reach 5 Million Subscribers on their club YouTube Channel before their first official game of the season, against Leeds United FC on Saturday 12th September 2020. A goal they reached at around 3pm on Friday 11th September 2020.

To achieve their subscriber goal, Liverpool required approximately 10,000 - 40,000 subscribers on the video sharing platform. Due to YouTube's simplifying of subscribers, I am unable to garner the exact number of subscribers gained as information regarding subscription numbers have now been rounded out in a move by the video sharing giant, and in turn by all related information gathering sites. This milestone means that they dramatically improved upon their subscription efforts as the clubs channel gains an average of 2,330 subscribers per day. This impressive feat was accomplished in around 24 hours of announcing their aim.

The club celebrated by posting a video with a joyful montage of images including the iconic Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp, local legend Trent Alexander-Arnold, goalkeeper Alisson Becker, LFC Forward Mo Salah, Captain Jordan Henderson, Midfielder Gini Wijnaldum, and of course, the iconic image of the 2019/20 Liverpool FC First Team lifting the Premier League Trophy.
