The Butcher & Bullock is in the process of confirming reservations for Everton. If you don’t hear from them by tomorrow afternoon, you did not get a reservation at Butcher & Bullock.
Any fans looking for a place to watch the game that don’t have a reservation at the Butcher & Bullock – Cinema Public House is opening for Liverpool fans, They have 70 seats. You can make reservations with them directly
We have been working with the Donnelly Group over the last few weeks to get the Butcher & Bullock back up and running for LFC Vancouver. At this point, the pub will be able to open for games.
The Donnelly Group has said they will prioritize entry for LFC Vancouver members on LFC Game days. People who aren’t members of LFC Vancouver won’t be able to get into the Butcher on game days, and should NOT try and line up at the pub. There is a limited capacity of 96 people and this will be taken up by LFC Vancouver members.
The Donnelly Group will have a number of venues open for business showing the Liverpool Games and there will be some very strict conditions that we will all have to follow to watch games in a way that keeps everyone safe and healthy. This is an extraordinary situation and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding with how things will have to go.
LFC Vancouver Members will be receiving emails later today with options for how you can watch games safely, along with the rules and process to follow. Please look out for the email, and check your spam folders. If you are a gmail user check your promotions folder as some members reported that emails from us go there.
Non-members – The Butcher and Bullock will NOT be open for you to watch the games. Please do not go to the Butcher & Bullock and line up on game days. In the next day or two we will publish more info on where non-members can watch games.
Liverpool’s first 3 fixtures of the resumed season are now posted, and our first game is 21st June 2020 vs Everton at 11:00 am local time.
Yesterday we sent an email survey to all current LFC Vancouver members – please check your spam folders and fill in the survey if you can. It will take 2 minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be used to help us as we work with the Donnelly Group to find a way for the Butcher & Bullock to open safely for members to watch the games. We are also looking into getting other venues if possible for members and non-members.
At the moment, we do know that the Butcher & Bullock will have a maximum capacity of 100 people, so with that in mind, it’s probable that only members of LFC Vancouver will be able to attend games at the Butcher if and when we can open, while social distancing restrictions are in place.
We also know that social distancing rules will need to be maintained for the health and safety of everyone at the pub on game days, and the provincial health rules for contact tracing will be strictly followed.
As for how this will all work – we hope to have an update in a few days once we have got the feedback from members and can discuss the way forward. Please stay tuned to the website / Facebook pages for updates in the coming days. As always we are also looking at options to find a venue to accommodate non-members in some way.
The Donnelly Group is slowly reopening it’s bars in a phased fashion. There is no firm date yet for the Butcher & Bullock reopening but it will reopen, and it should be in time for the restart of the Premier League if things stay on track in the UK.
Obviously there will be lots of questions around watching matches at the pub, and limited capacity. We don’t have the answers to those questions yet, but will be working with the Donnelly Group to find a way that works safely and within guidelines for the club and venue. Stay tuned to this website, and we will publish any further info when we have it.
