We will be watching Liverpool play Manchester City in the 11th Street Bar on Wednesday the 30th of July at 7.00 PM. Come watch with us!

About Us

Our initial days of watching LFC in New York required early starts, reliable satellite systems and reliable bar owners (no tv coverage). Having found a bar that was 1) open as advertised and 2) could acquire the satellite signal, the matchday experience usually involved loud, boorish cockneys and ten-a-penny non-manc mancs.

It was against this backdrop that the need for LFC supporters to come together was realized and at the start of the 1995/6 season, Liverpool Football Club Supporters Club, New York (LFCNY) was born. At the first meeting, in Cleary’s on Third Avenue and 33rd Street, Dave Brenner, Paul Dackombe and Sean Woods were duly elected to run the club. Daragh Kennedy took on the role of club president, in our inaugural year, a role he still maintains today.

It was important to establish ourselves in a bar that was not only welcoming of the revenue but supportive of our goals to provide access to the match and to other Liverpool supporters. We wandered in the desert for a few years until we reached the Promised Land – 11th St Bar. The formative years also saw the production of a literally hand produced fanzine “25th of May” (our homage to The Glory That Was Rome 1977, and in Sean’s opinion, LFC’s greatest moment; it was also a match attended by Dave, Paul and Sean long before they ever met in New York).

The other staple of club membership, or hook, was a free LFCNY t-shirt when you signed up. These shirts became sought after items around the globe. In Baltimore for the pre-season against Spurs this summer, we bumped into a lady from Connecticut wearing the iconic Brenner-Burge-Deakin white-on-red NY skyline design from over 10 years ago. The banner was another milestone in the club’s identity and it has been proudly displayed throughout North America and Europe.

The club has admirably moved with the times – online, social media, podcasts, merchandise, etc. Many, many dedicated reds have donated time, effort and money to keep it going. You are all sons and daughters of Shankly. We are continually moved by the ecstatic highs and tragic lows that are inextricably woven into the fabric of the great Liverpool Football Club; we have raised funds for the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and the Hillsborough to Anfield Run, participated in the overthrow of Hicks and Gillett as well as Steve Cohen and built strong relationships with Reclaim The Kop (John Mackin) and Spirit of Shankly (the late Paul Rice). We have also become very involved in the community and have led many food and coat drives, and raised money for a local soccer club, Downtown United Soccer Club, which provides youngsters in New York’s poorer neighborhoods, an opportunity to play football at no expense to them or their families.

We urge everyone to ensure our tradition of support and activism continues.

11th Street Bar

The 11th Street Bar on 11th street between Avenue A & B is the long standing home of the New York Liverpool Supporters Club. This is where we hold events, have meetings and, most importantly, watch the matches together!

We broadcast every Premier League game live and almost every cup game as well.

The bar typically opens 60-90 minutes prior to each game. Anyone can come to the bar, but if you are under 21, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For big games, we would always recommend getting to the bar as early as possible to gain entry. The bigger games see the bar full whereas most of the other games would see approximately 100 Liverpool fans in attendance.

Believe it or not, the bar itself is becoming quite famous in Liverpool and is on the list of tourist attractions for visiting fans. On game days the fans tend to be exclusively Liverpool fans, though opposing fans are also very welcome. Many have even been known to get out alive! The fans are not shy about venting their opinions and the atmosphere is always friendly. The ages have ranged from 6 days (and dressed in a Liverpool shirt!) to somewhere north of 80 (we were too polite to ask) and we get an almost even split of men and women. Game days are well worth the visit, especially the big games with all the singing, chanting, and excitement associated with football, sorry… soccer, wafting out of the bar.

If you want to bring some memorabilia that’s cool, but unless it’s really spectacular, it will not go on the wall due to space limitations. However we do raffle off all memorabilia for charity and club funds about twice a year.

Parking around the 11th Street Bar is attainable, particularly if you arrive early. The Avenues (A,B,C, 1st etc.) have Mini Meters that you can park at for up to an hour for 50 cents for every ten minutes. There is no charge for parking on Sunday’s. There is free parking on the numbered streets (10th, 11th, 12th etc.) but spaces usually are limited. If all else fails, there is a parking lot on 11th Street between Avenue A and B that usually charges about $20 to park for the duration of a game.

To get to the bar by subway, you can take the A,C,E,1,2,3,F,M,N,Q,R,4,5,6 to their respective 14th Street stations and transfer to the L subway going east towards Brooklyn. Get off at 1st avenue (at 14th Street), walk three blocks south to 11th Street and go east (left) one block to Avenue A. The bar is located at 510 East 11th street.

Tuesday

Seven bars have agreed to participate in Anfield Row on July 29th and 30th. These 7 bars will be set up to welcome LFC fans from near and far and provide an opportunity for out of towners to visit some of Manhattan’s East Village. The bars will be open from 2pm till late. Check out our Anfield Row tab for more information

On Tuesday night starting at 7:30, LFCNY in conjunction with LFC will be hosting two LFC legends; Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler at Legends Bar on 33rd Street at 5th Avenue. This event is open to the public but entry will be restricted once the venue’s capacity has been reached, so anyone who is interested in attending should plan to get to the venue early.

LFCNY has been given priority access to this event for our members. LFCNY members who have been allocated passes for this event should arrive at Legends between 6:30 and 7:30 and see our club President, Daragh Kennedy at the door, to collect your wristband to gain entry. A list of those who will be allocated wristbands is outlined below.

In addition to the wristband to gain entry, we will be giving out additional wristbands to some lucky members which will provide them the opportunity to meet with Ian and Robbie personally, have pictures taken and memorabilia signed. For a chance to obtain one of these wristbands, please wear an LFCNY t-shirt to the event (it does not have to be the 2014/15 t-shirt).

LFCNY will also have a professional photographer on hand to capture all of the action from that evening. We expect to be able to post all of the photos taken within a week to our website and facebook page.

Wednesday

All of the bars on Anfield Row will be open from 2pm on Wednesday.

Also, Upper 90 will have a mobile store parked near the 11th Street Bar on Wednesday afternoon selling a full range of Liverpool gear. They will be offering a 20% discount to LFCNY members.

At 11th Street, we will be hosting Mike Lepic from Jamie Carragher’s 23 Foundation. The 23 Foundation is a kids charity set up to help children all over the world battling cancer/illness.

We will be holding a raffle to raise money for the foundation from 2-4 on Wednesday afternoon at the 11th Street Bar. Among the items to be raffled are signed shirts featuring Lucas, Agger, Sakho, Gerrard/Carragher and a jersey signed by the full squad. Tickets will be $10 each.

At 6:00pm, LFCNY will lead a march from the Yankee Tavern (72 E 161st St, Bronx, NY 10451) to Yankee Stadium and we welcome all LFC fans from all over the world to join us. Wear your jerseys, scarves and t-shirts, bring your banners and join us as we show New Yorkers how true fans follow their team.

Anfield Row

New York is a big city, and to help you meet with other Liverpool fans while you’re visiting, LFCNY are proud to announce ‘Anfield Row’. Based in the East Village, around LFCNY’s home of the 11th Street Bar, the bars listed below will be turned into Anfield Row on July 29th and July 30th.   Liverpool fans will be welcomed with open arms, so come down to sing songs, exchange scarves, meet old friends, and make new ones. If you’d like to pick-up an LFCNY t-shirt or scarf, please make sure you visit the 11th Street on the evening of the 29th or 30th.  However, all of the bars are within a couple of blocks, so we’d recommend checking out a few of them. A few tips on how to drink like a local:

  • The legal drinking age in the US is 21, so don’t be surprised if you’re asked to show your ID, no matter how old you are;
  • NYC has an “Open Container” law which means you can’t take your drink out onto the pavement (or sidewalk, as the locals call it);
  • It’s customary to tip the barkeeper in the US (the going rate is a dollar per drink);

Tour 2014: Yankee Stadium

Liverpool are playing Manchester City at Yankee Stadium on July 30th 2014. Kick off time is 7pm.  At 6pm, LFCNY will be leading a march from Yankees Tavern (72 E 161st St) to the stadium.

Yankee Stadium is located in The Bronx, outside of Manhattan. The Yankees have kindly provided information on how to get there on their website.

Unlike Anfield, the stadium is located extremely close to a subway station. The station is called 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. The No. 4 train (Green subway line) and the B/D trains (Orange subway line) will stop at the stadium. If you’re riding the Green line, make sure you’re on a 4 train, as the 5/6 trains do not go to Yankee Stadium. From midtown Manhattan, it will take at least 30 minutes to get to the stadium. From Anfield Row featuring the 11th Street Bar, it may take up to 1 hour.

If you are at Anfield Row (and why would you be anywhere else?), You can take the 4 train from 14th Street / Union Square, directly to Yankee Stadium.

Union Square to Yankee Stadium

There are several bars catering to fans near Yankee Stadium. Look for fellow LFC fans in Yankee Tavern. And remember, unlike stadiums in the UK, New York is civilised enough to let you buy a beer inside the stadium.  

If you’re driving, Yankee Stadium is accessible from the Major Deegan Expressway (Interstate 87) at the following exits:

Northbound I-87: Exit 3 (Grand Concourse and East 138th Street), Exit 4 (East 149th Street) and Exit 5 (East 161st Street)

Southbound I-87: Exit 6 (East 153rd Street and River Avenue) and Exit 5 (East 161st Street)

More details, including parking, can be found here.

LFCNY will be leading a march from Yankee Tavern at 6pm to the S

Scousers guide to NYC

New York has a bewildering variety of bars, restaurants and other attractions.  To help you sort the Dalglishs from the Koncheskys, here are some personal recommendations from LFCNY members.

 

Jack Sheahan

LFC supporters since a semester in London, spring 1992. LFCNY member since 1997, or was it ’98?

Recommendations: And these are FREE:

Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. From the Manhattan side, the closest subway stop is “Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall” on the lower east side, but all the stops on the other lines are a relatively close walk. When you are mid-span, stop, look around…. all those big buildings climbing into the sky. But remember, at the time the Bridge was built, its two massive stone towers were the tallest structures in NYC. We’ve come a long way since then, eh?

Ride the Staten Island Ferry. ALL the subway stops at the south end of Manhattan are very close to the terminal. You get on the Ferry, which takes you across New York harbor, past the Statue of Liberty, which will be on the right side of the boat as it goes past. When you arrive in Staten Island, get off the ferry, and “come around” back into the waiting area from which you can re-board the ferry for the trip back into Manhattan. As you are coming back, Brooklyn is you to your right. And the lower Manhattan skyline seems to explode straight out of the water. Well worth it.

Walk “The Mall” in Central Park to the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain. Both locations are considered “mid-park” so subway stops are a bit of a distance. If you enter the Park from “Strawberry Fields”, you will be on the Park’s West Drive. Cross the drive, and walk east on the “72nd Street Transverse”. You will eventually get to the Terrace and Fountain. To the south, is The Mall, which you will likely recognize from the movies in which it has been included. And remember, the Park may seem like a natural oasis, but everything around you was purposefully put there. The Park was built, starting during the Civil War, the mid-1860′s.

Restaurant Recommendation: Sorry, NOT FREE.

1. Keen’s Steakhouse, located at 72 West 36th Street in Manhattan. Phone: (212) 947-3636 It’s been a NYC dining establishment since 1885!!!! The ceiling is lined with the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world!!! For what it’s worth, I’ve eaten there probably 20 times, and never been disappointed. It’s a bit expensive, but you’re in NYC, and this place is extraordinary. If you’re going, let me know, my wife and I might join you.

2. Zum Schneider, a traditional German beer hall, right in the East Village. Maybe if you need to stretch your legs during a visit to the 11th Street Bar, check out “Zoom”. It’s located at Avenue C and East 7th Street. Big liters of beer, sausage, pretzels, long tables, you get the idea. Worth a visit, but remember your cash, no credit cards accepted.

 

Alan Leamey (@alanleamey)

I’ve been lucky enough to travel to New York, 3 times. I first went when I was 21 with 2 friends.  And most recently in 2013 when I married my now wife in Central Park.
My wife having lived in Anfield before moving a few miles to start our own home in Croxteth Park. We are both British and live in Liverpool but fell in love with New York through cinema and tv.
My great grandad’s used to sail on the White Star Line RMS Adriatic in the 30′s and tell my grandfather tales of New York. He unfortunately never got to go in his lifetime.
If I can recommend anything for a travelling Liverpool fan to do whilst in New York, it’s to travel on the Staten Island Ferry.  A trip on the ferry from lower Manhattan to Staten Island has breathtaking views of the city, Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty.
When at Staten Island hop straight back on the ferry, grab a beer from the bar and stand at the front of the vessel. You will travel back over to Manhattan on near enough the same route my grandfathers took as they entered the city. And the best part about it is; it’s completely free to travel.  America is of course the land of the free and home of the brave.
And as you approach the skyscrapers, the warm sun glistening on panes of glass and reflecting onto your face, be it 1930 or 2014 you will feel a world of opportunity present itself to you. Be that on the streets of New York, or ’round the fields of Anfield Road.

 

Sriram Satish ()

Governor’s Island – A little island positioned just south of Manhattan, it’s a little sanctuary for those of us that live in the city, with large swaths of grass, trees and a great view. Open 7 days a week, the island is accessible by ferry from numerous points in Brooklyn (weekends only) and Manhattan, the easiest being the ferry terminal downtown at the Battery Maritime Building (10 South St, adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry terminal – $2 for a roundtrip ticket). Once on the island, you can rent bikes or walk around to enjoy the scenery, enjoy the numerous food trucks that come on the weekends or enjoy some of the many special events that take place at the Governor’s Beach Club or other venues on the island.  Well worth a visit for a few hours if you’re tired of the concrete jungle! More information, including ferry schedule and list of events can be found here: http://www.govisland.com/html/home/home.shtml

Nightlife – If you’re looking for clubs NYC has some of the best in the country. Some are grungy and underground, others are posh and fancy, while still others fall in between. Every weekend you’re sure to find some of the biggest DJs in the world spinning in the city so you won’t go wrong wherever you go. Cover charges and drinks are pricy, so make sure you either budget a fair amount for the night out, or have a nice pre-drinks event before going! My personal favorites include Cielo, which is a small venue in the Meatpacking district on the west side of Manhattan, as well Lavo, which is in midtown. If you’re looking for a British flair, check out Sankeys near Herald Square (yes, the same Sankeys from Manchester and Ibiza is now open here!) – hands down best sound system at any nightclub in NYC.

Smorgasburg – getting out of Manhattan, and away from Times Square, is one of the best parts of visiting NYC.  At the weekend take the ferry to Brooklyn and check out Smorgasburg.  Every kind of food you can imagine, great people watching, and phenomenal views of the Manhattan skyline.

Nitehawk cinema - want to take in a movie, while waiters bring you good food and strong liquor? Nitehawk shows a range of classic movies and new releases, as well as special screenings.  Menus are tailored to the film, the cocktails are flawless, and the head chef is an LFC fan.

The Coffee Shop, 29 Union Square West – Open late.  Bar/Restaurant.  Good food, good prices – even the fish and chips are good!  Coffee Shop-style food with a Brazilian twist.  I love the pao de queijo (cheese bread) and plantains (salty or sweet).

Food Trucks:  Kebabs on 11th Street and First Avenue, right across from the Mosque.  One LFCNY member swears they are the best in the city.  Empanadas on 14th Street between Third Avenue and Irving Place.  Great meat patties, fresh and hot.

Porchetta & Butter Lane, East 7th Street between First Avenue and Avenue A:  Roast pork sandwiches on ciabatta bread, a Roman speciality.  The roasted potatoes are great too.  And cupcakes (right across the street) – you mix and match the frosting and cake flavors.  A lot of seasonal choices.

Artichoke Pizza, 14th Street between Second & First Avenue:  Open late; also serves large size Budweiser.  Specialty pizza is artichokes in a cream sauce but the regular marinara is good too.

Planet Rose, 219 Avenue A (between 13th & 14th):  Conveniently located near the 11th Street and Percy’s bars.  Open mike karaoke; only pay for the drinks.  Dive bar atmosphere.  11th Streeters have been known to show up and sing Liverpool songs there….

Great pizza:  1) Gruppo Pizza, 186 Avenue B – and excellent salads.  A bit expensive but authentic Italian-style pizza.  2)  11B, 174 Avenue B (at 11th St).  Very good New York style pizza.  You can order in from the 11th Street bar.

 

Denise Vasel (Hells’ Kitchen)

Italian Food: Da Tommaso 8th ave between 53rd and 54th.  Classic Italian food that anyone from this area grew up with.  The cheese ravioli special is homemade and always a winner.  A trendier place with more of a wine bar feel is Bocca di Baco on 9th between 54th and 55th (they also have locations on 9th between 45th and 46th and one somewhere in Chelsea).  It is louder and has a smaller menu, but one of the best wine selections I have seen.  La Rivista on 46th between 8th and 9th (restaurant row) is also a solid choice with a prix-fixe, but i would recommend reservations if you are going between 6 and 8 as the pre theater crowd is there at that time.

Pizza:  My go to place is a Fat Sal’s a hole in the wall on 50th and 10th.  The slices are giant and extra cheesy.  Don’t let the dingy interior fool you!

Local Bar:  Bar 9 on 9th between 53rd and 54th is my go to local place.  it’s super chill, and they have pool and 80s video games.  The beer is decently priced, and the tacos are awesome (according to my buddy who grew up eating his mom’s mexican home cooking.)  They also have tater tots, which are just magic.

Greek:  The Greek Kitchen on 10th between 57 and 58th.  Not as authentic as the places you will find in Astoria, but a nice little place that has a real family feel.  The Greek Fries are extra yummy.

Food Truck:  The Halal Guys usually on 52nd or 53rd and 6th ave.  There can be a line halfway down the block if you go at mealtime, but it’s totally worth it.  Some of the best street food in the city.

New York Red Bulls

We have put together a deal with the New York Red Bulls for their opening game on Saturday, March 15th at 4:00pm against the Colorado Rapids.

The New York Red Bulls play in Harrison, NJ which is serviced by the PATH train which can be accessed from Manhattan for less than the price of a subway ride. We have on hold, group tickets in seats at midfield that will cost $31 each. If we get a group of 30 to go, we will be invited on to the pitch at the end of the game for a group photo.

If you are interested, simply submit payment via paypal to membership@lfcny.org for the number of tickets you want.

I am not sure how we will distribute the tickets yet but we will communicate that information to those who are going, at a later date.

Tickets

LFCNY as an official branch of Liverpool Football Club, is eligible to request tickets to home Premier League games each season. This process takes place twice a year. Historically this has taken place in June for games scheduled to be played between August and December and in October, for games scheduled for the second half of the season.

Please be advised that a number of fixtures could be changed due to the TV networks broadcasting the games live, to a different day and time, so please keep this in mind before you finalize your travel plans.

We are no longer accepting requests for tickets to games scheduled for the first half of the 2014/15 season. If you have been allocated tickets, please CLICK HERE to pay for them.

The process to request tickets is as follows (please read carefully):

1) You must be a signed up LFCNY member to request tickets. Membership ranges from $25 to $35 for the season, and includes a LFCNY t-shirt. Click here to join;

2) LFCNY members can request up to four tickets for each home premier league game scheduled between August and December, though keep in mind, if your application is successful, you will need an active LFC membership (not LFCNY) for all allocated tickets. All ticket requests must be made online through our website. Ticket prices are $75, $80 or $85 per ticket depending on the fixture. This includes all paypal fees and currency conversion charges and fluctuations;

Please only submit requests for games you plan on attending. Do not request tickets for two fixtures to increase your chances, if you only plan to go to one. You will be responsible for payment for all tickets allocated;

3) The deadline to request tickets will be Sunday, June 29th at 12:00pm. At that time, we will tabulate the requests received and submit a request to LFC.

4) Once our ticket allocation is confirmed by LFC, we will communicate via club email to advise which fixtures we received tickets for, and which members were successful in obtaining tickets;

5) If your application is successful, payment must be made via paypal, directly from our website within 7 days of notification. No cash, checks or other payment methods will be accepted. Ticket prices are $75, $80 or $85 depending on if the fixture is a Category A, B or C game.

6) Each person allocated tickets must be an active member of Liverpool Football Club’s membership program (in addition to being a member of LFCNY). So if you receive an allocation of four tickets, you must be able to provide four LFC member numbers (not LFCNY) with the corresponding names. For more information, please access LFC’s site. You must possess a Membership Light, or Full Memberships to receive tickets through LFCNY. The International membership has no ticketing benefits. LFC membership runs from June 1 to May 31 and needs to be renewed annually. Please do not provide an expired membership number as it will not be accepted by LFC. When renewing or purchasing your LFC membership, please select our branch, New York, from the drop down menu on the Membership registration page. You will be given a membership number instantaneously;

7) In the event we receive more requests than the tickets we are allocated, a drawing will be held to allocate the tickets equitably;

8) Members who are to be allocated tickets will be emailed with details of their seat number and location by LFCNY approximately 2-4 weeks prior to the fixture. We have no say where the tickets will be located, but historically they have been in very good locations, including the Kop. The Membership Card of those Members who have been allocated tickets will be activated for entry at Anfield. There will be no paper ticket issued.

Hillsborough

On April 15 1989, 24,000 Liverpool fans travelled to a football match. 96 never returned. Over 20 years after Britain’s worst sporting disaster, we want the world to see the faces of the fans whose hopes and dreams for the future ended that day.

Collectively they’ve become known as ‘The 96′ but to the families and friends they left behind, they were simply a dad, a son, a brother and a sister; a cousin, an auntie, an uncle and a granddad; a boyfriend, a husband, a soul mate and a best friend.

As the wife of one of the supporters who never came home so eloquently put it in a letter published on this website on the 20th anniversary of the disaster, “To the world my husband is one of the 96, but to me and his children, he was always our number one.”              

To those who didn’t know them, the fans who died at Hillsborough that day may just be a number of names etched into the Hillsborough Memorial marble.

24,000 tickets, 23 turnstiles, two criminally overcrowded pens, 96 dead and 766 people injured – numbers alone don’t even begin to tell half the story of a disaster that has shaped Liverpool Football Club and the fans that will forever follow it.

Probably the most significant number in this whole sorry tragedy is the one that depicts the age of each victim on the slide show below.

That number, and the faces staring back at you – captured during happier times – tells you everything you need to know about why the events of April 15, 1989 and the fans who died that day will never ever be forgotten.

Join LFCNY!

LFCNY membership runs from June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015 and can be renewed now.

Anyone who joined up last season will continue to receive club email through August 31, 2014. We have changed the parameters of our membership in an effort to be consistent with the process to request tickets from LFC which has over the last few years, taken place in June.

However, to request tickets for home Premier League Liverpool games and to take advantage of activities organized around Liverpool's game in New York, your membership must be current.

Membership costs $25 and includes a LFCNY t-shirt which has a new design each year. You can pick your t-shirt up at the 11th Street Bar, or choose to have it shipped to you. It costs an additional $5 to ship within the US and an additional $10 to have the t-shirt shipped to international destinations. To join, please complete the form, select which shipping option you would like and you will be taken to PayPal to complete the transaction. Thank you.

The club t-shirts will be available in time for the Liverpool game in Yankee Stadium on July 30th. We will communicate via club email when the t-shirts are available for distribution. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery of your t-shirt from that date and make sure to include your t-shirt size. Thanks.
