Visit Britain are currently looking for a passionate fan that they can crown as football’s Super Fan – and looking towards Liverpool might be a very good idea in their search.
After all, you don’t get more passionate than the historic rivalry between Liverpool and Everton. Though both clubs have enjoyed varying levels of success, the proximity between the two clubs has led to years of highly fought battles over the years – with both looking to gain the upper hand on their local rivals.
Liverpool is a football mad city, though, and whilst the Premier League sides dominate the market – there are more than a few smaller sides that cannot be ignored. Perhaps the most significant one of these is Tranmere Rovers, who currently play in the National League.
Undoubtedly, though, Everton and Liverpool are the two sides that attract the most interest, and whilst you consider whether you have what it takes to be crowned Visit Britain’s Super Fan, let’s delve slightly deeper into the foundations of these two historic sides…
Everton are a side that has struggled for success in recent years, but their fans are as passionate about their club as any other club in England.
Currently managed by Ronald Koeman, the Toffees – as they are affectionately known – are certainly a club on the up, and they look likely to begin to challenge closer to the top of the table in the coming years.
They play at Goodison Park, which holds around 40,000 passionate supporters.
Then there’s Liverpool, who are a club arguably steeped in more history than any other club.
A huge fan base the world over, the Reds have enjoyed limited success in recent years, but their prominence within European competition is undoubted.
With 18 top flight titles, the significance of the club cannot be understated.
Anfield is, of course, the place that they call home – with close to 55,000 fans able to squeeze through the gates. You’ll often hear them singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before a game – a song that has become synonymous with the club and its culture.
Under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds look to be returning to the glory days of yesteryear.
