Anfield will play host to the Liverpool FC Players’ Awards at the end of the season, acknowledging the stars of the Reds’ 2016/17 campaign.
And announcing this year’s Players’ Awards on Tuesday afternoon, the club confirmed that they would again be held at Anfield, and be shown live on LiverpoolFC.com.
Set for May 9, it will take place in the stadium’s newly expanded Main Stand, and will honour the first team, Liverpool Ladies, and the stars of the academy, as well as former players and supporters.
These awards will include Player of the Season, First Team’s Players’ Player of the Season, Liverpool Ladies FC Players’ Player of the Season, Academy Players’ Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season, Goal of the Season.
Coming three days after the Reds’ penultimate home game of the season, against Southampton, the club will be hoping this provides a fitting backdrop to celebrate a successful campaign.
“The Players’ Awards will once again be raising funds for Liverpool FC Foundation, the Club’s official charity,” a club statement confirmed.
“The aim of the LFC Foundation is to make a real difference to the lives of children and young people in Merseyside and beyond.”
Philippe Coutinho was the big winner of last season’s awards, named both Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year, standing out as the star of the Reds’ attack.
Emre Can (Young Player of the Year), Brad Smith (Academy Players’ Player of the Year) and Martha Harris (Ladies Players’ Player of the Year) were also among those to be honoured.
For now, however, the focus remains on the pitch, as Klopp looks to guide Liverpool to glory in 2017.
