UEFA Approve Away Fan Attendance for 2021-22 Champions League

Subject to local regulations, away fans will be able to attend Liverpool’s European games this season—starting with AC Milan’s visit to Anfield.

After a 2020-21 season that saw fan access to stadiums limited at best and more often than not barred entirely due to the coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool’s 2021-22 campaign saw the Reds kick off in front of full crowds for the first time in more than a year.

There was some question, though, as to what the situation would look like in European competition where clubs play their away games in foreign countries. As of today, it appears that away fans will be allowed to attend those matches—subject to local regulations.

That’s the word from Sky today, and since widely disseminated in the English press, with UEFA said to have ruled that both home and away supporters will be at upcoming Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League matches.

For the Reds that will mean welcoming AC Milan supporters on Wednesday, September 15th when the Serie A side come to Anfield for the two sides’ Champions League Group B opener. Liverpool then travel to face FC Porto in Portugal on Tuesday the 28th.
