Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students have won the English Premier League title since June. However, they have not been able to celebrate the title with the fans. The Covid-19 pandemic caused the teams to play in an empty stadium.It also forced fans to watch from afar, avoiding crowds.
When Liverpool had enough points to take the throne, hundreds of supporters poured into the streets to celebrate the victory despite the warning. Many people gathered overnight at the harbor, leading to criticism by the club itself and the city mayor.
How did Liverpool receive the Cup amidst the COVID-19 pandemic?
Because of Covid-19, Liverpool had to follow the unprecedented rules of the Premier League after the match against Chelsea.
Without fans coming to celebrate at Anfield, Liverpool will hold a sound and light show on the occasion of returning to the English football throne after 30 years of waiting.
They have set up the stage in the stands and the players will stand scattered in this area during the ceremony. The rest of the yard will be turned off, followed by a light show, on the soundtrack of the song A Sky Full of Stars by Cold Play.
According to Athletic, each Liverpool player is arranged in one area on the stage, so that they can be spaced apart for most of the ceremony. Only when captain Jordan Henderson holds the Cup to lift it can the players get closer.
