Liverpool lives for one thing – football. And there’s no better way to experience this than a visit to the Merseyside Derby.
Liverpool-Everton used to be called the Friendly Derby. While this is true in many respects, don’t let the name fool you.
This is a fiery city rivalry between two sets of fans that love giving each other stick.
Reds fans are quick to remind the Blues of how long it’s been since Everton won a trophy. While Everton fans hit back by saying they are ‘born not manufactured’ – a reference to Liverpool’s international fanbase.
Despite the Reds’ global appeal, the Merseyside derby is a local affair. And on derby day, the city buzzes with anticipation.
As for you, you’ll head for a few pints in The Sandon near Anfield. To get the adrenaline pumping and prepare yourself for the moment You’ll Never Walk Alone starts pounding out from the Kop.
This age-old derby is truly magical. And you can experience it like a local with Homefans, along with our dedicated local host.
