Liverpool to trial paperless away ticket scheme with Crystal Palace

Liverpool has linked up with Crystal Palace to trial a paperless ticketing system for away supporters.

The pilot scheme will give season ticket holders and members the opportunity to use their stadium access cards for entry to both home and away Premier League fixtures.

Two hundred fans will be randomly selected to take part in the trial for travelling Liverpool supporters for the game on November 23 at Selhurst Park Stadium. They will not receive a paper ticket for the game against Crystal Palace, but must take their LFC stadium access card instead.

Crystal Palace fans will also take part in the trial on a reciprocal basis when they visit Anfield in March 2020.

The selection process will take place following the sale of tickets with the lead booker notified by email on November 7. Further details will then be provided, including seat details and turnstile entry point at Selhurst Park.

Liverpool said the trial will contribute towards helping it improve ticket distribution. The club also noted that activating cards for stadium access instead of issuing paper tickets will hopefully avoid tickets being held up or lost in the post, provide accurate attendance data and will also help to combat ticket touting.
