Liverpool FC Fans Criticised For 'Unacceptable' Behaviour At City's Pier Head By Mayors & Council

Both Mayor Anderson of the City of Liverpool and Mayor Rotheram of the Liverpool City Region have called for fans of Liverpool FC to return home after hundreds gather on the City's iconic waterfront landmark, the Pier Head. The celebration takes place after last night's mass gather, on the 25th June, outside Anfield in which flares were lit in abundance and approximately 2,000 LFC fans gathered to sing and drink together to celebrate the long awaited victory of Liverpool FC winning the Premier League and becoming Champions of England after 30 years of vain attempts.

Mayor Anderson Is 'Concerned' By The Scenes At The Pier Head

The City of Liverpool Mayor has encouraged LFC fans to celebrate at home as COVID-19 is still a 'major risk and our city has already lost far too many people to this illness'.

Mayor Rotheram Finds The Mass Gathering 'Dangerous

Mayor Rotheram who represents the wider six boroughs of the Liverpool City Region echoed the voice of the Mayor Anderson and the Liverpool City Council saying 'Nobody is more made up than me to see @LFC champions again but this is dangerous' and encouraged fans to 'celebrate at home.'

The City Council Has Criticised The Behaviour As 'Unacceptable'

Liverpool City Council has said that they 'do not have the legal powers to move groups of people on' and that they understand that fans will want to celebrate however the scenes taking place are 'unacceptable' as COVID-19 is 'still a major risk.'

Fans have felt split over whether public celebrations should be taking place on the streets of the Region. With many voicing concerns that this will spread COVID-19 infections and that the celebrations can wait until it is safe to do so.

Has the Coronavirus affected you? Do you think that these celebrations should be taking place? Or should fans wait until it is safe to do so? Let me know your thoughts on the matter in the comment section, on social or through email me on
