Season ticket holders of Liverpool have been invited to participate in a trial of new NFC digital passes at the English Premier League football club’s Anfield home.

The NFC passes are set to be rolled out across the stadium ahead of the start of the 2021-22 season.

However, fans will have the opportunity to come to Anfield and test out the technology at turnstiles from today (July 19) until the end of the month.

Supporters must download their pass online and then report to a meeting point outside the Kop stand, situated next to the club’s retail store.

Season ticket holders and members who do not have access to a smartphone or NFC technology can request a stadium access card with their photograph.

The club first introduced NFC technology to Anfield in December of last year as part of a gradual shift towards paperless ticketing.

Liverpool has resumed season ticket sales for the new campaign after having abandoned them last season, due to the pandemic. The club has been planning for “business as usual” since launching the sales earlier this year.

The UK Government confirmed earlier this month that stadiums would be allowed to operate at a full capacity from today (July 19).

Last month, Liverpool said that Anfield would trial the temporary installation of seats with safety rails in two areas of the stadium following a safety review by the Sports Grounds Safety Authority.
