The phased opening of the Anfield Road upper tier is set to begin next week, with a test event scheduled ahead of the meeting with Man United on December 17.

The club have issued an email to supporters inviting them to come along to the event on Monday December 11, during which a live question and answers session with Jurgen Klopp will take place, nice!

Liverpool’s meeting with their Manchester rivals will be the first time we will see supporters in the upper section of the newly-developed stand on a matchday.

In preparation for this, the free test event – managed in conjunction with the local council – will include an LFC Foundation community match and a live Q&A with the boss.

The event runs from 6pm (GMT) until 8pm and tickets can be purchased on the club’s official website from Tuesday morning at 9am.

Free next Monday evening? Get yourself down!
