While the city of Liverpool is designated as Tier 2 by the Government in terms of coronavirus infection rates, the club is permitted to admit up to 2,000 supporters into Goodison Park as they will do for the first time since the pandemic set in in March when Chelsea are the visitors this coming Saturday.
The ballot for both fixtures is open only to 2020-21 Season Ticket or Lounge Members living within the Liverpool City Region and closes at 11:59pm on Friday 11 December.
Emails to supporters who have been successful (or unsuccessful) will be sent out on 14 December (Arsenal) and 15 December (Manchester City).
Should any public health information or guidance on what is required to attend the game change, then that will be provided in the confirmation emails.
Details of the ballot and ticket purchasing options for the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Manchester United on Wednesday 23 December will be issued later this week.

Those fans who registered for the Chelsea ballot but were unsuccessful will have an increased chance of registering for the Arsenal or Manchester City ballot due to the weighting that is in place as part of the processing system.

The more ballots you enter increases your chances, just don't be selective about which games you'd like to go to as the club will probably have a system which will recognise this and block you.

I can see the 2,000 being increased to 4,000 early in the New Year once clubs can demonstrate that people in football grounds are not causing the disease to spread.

I must admit Im surprised the club have chosen to put fans in the Top Balcony. Surely it would be better for the atmosphere to have them nearer to the pitch, closer to the action and the TV cameras.
21 Posted 08/12/2020 at 16:54:55
Spreading people out was the mantra when the restricted capacity was announced.
It also makes sense to have areas that will be seen by the cameras occupied by fans.
As an out of town supporter I don't have the chance of getting to a game. But as a few have said above, I will be there in spirit... Usually scotch.

top balcony and the top tier of Gwladys Street.
My seat is on the Main Stand side and I havent seen the top balcony since I sat there for a cup tie
against West Brom on a Sunday. Its never shown on televised games. I think it may have been the first ever Sunday game but could be wrong. The game was drawn and we lost the replay. Archie Styles and
WBs Johnstone were sent off.

exchange for Bob Latchford.
24 Posted 08/12/2020 at 18:46:00
With the 1,820 people split between the Lower Gwladys and the Top Balcony I think they will be well socially distanced. The combined capacity of the two areas is well over 10,000.
25 Posted 08/12/2020 at 18:50:25
I'm sure no consideration was given to numbers, entry and egress, ease of stewarding, ease of policing and stuff like that.
Yeh "senseless" of course.
26 Posted 08/12/2020 at 19:16:46
Is this because these teams have got a league cup game as well? Because Liverpool and Fulham are getting an average of 4.5 days rest between games, with the only upside being that we wont have to listen to that crying German c**t, because his constant moaning has paid off once again.
27 Posted 08/12/2020 at 23:28:47
The only thing we beat them on is time in the top league. They will not be happy till they take that too.
28 Posted 09/12/2020 at 22:12:00
Just been told that tonight. Surely not though?
Anyone any info?
29 Posted 09/12/2020 at 22:31:22
At the moment those cost extra... lol!
30 Posted 09/12/2020 at 22:33:27
Has to be a wind-up!
31 Posted 10/12/2020 at 19:27:28
There are to be 500 fans in the Top Balcony, and 1,500 in the Upper and Lower Gwladys Street, so I'm guessing 750 per tier? Surely you'd move seat if you had an obstructed view, though not too far as stewards will be watching fans to make sure they follow all the rules laid down by the club.
One of the rules is that you are given a time when you have to enter the stadium. The first fans have to enter 90 minutes before kick-off. This time will be printed on your ticket. What the fuck are you meant to do for 90 minutes? And what happens if you're late, and miss your entrance time, can't you get in?

Rob: 'Brent, where are you sitting?'
Answer: Probably horizontal by the 8pm KO...
35 Posted 10/12/2020 at 20:15:11
I'm Upper Gwladys Street: GS4 S143. Please don't tell me that's a restricted view.

While I accept the club has to do things correctly, the process seems to be completely over the top. We have to go through far less scrutiny to be able to sit indoors at a pub for a meal, and I have a ticket for an FA Trophy match on Saturday afternoon simply by providing an email address and a mobile number. And that is for a ground that can allow entry to 20% of ground capacity, when Goodison will only be at 5%.
39 Posted 10/12/2020 at 20:33:52
I sent an email to the club asking the question about moving seats should you have a restricted view. The club informed me that, should you move seat, you will be shot. Firm but fair, methinks.

I found it useful as it now gives sites added today in, eg, Southport (and all other areas of Liverpool City Region now offering the quick-turnaround lateral flow tests – walk-in, no appointment).
