It’s another win for Jurgen’s Reds at Chelsea, and the boss has just been announced as men’s coach of the year at the FIFA Football Awards. VVD missed out to Messi in a travesty of a decision. LFC Vancouver is going from strength to strength and it’s great to see so many people at the pub for each game. Some people can’t read the website or facebook/twitter, however… so here are some FAQs and updates:
Yes – We meet for every Liverpool game at the Butcher. Every game is shown. We show every game. Each game is on at the pub. We meet for every game live, regardless of what time. All games are shown Live. Do we show every game live? Yes, we do. In case you weren’t sure, yes we show every game live.
The pub opens at least 30 mins before kick-off. Sometimes they open earlier, especially if it’s raining. We don’t know how busy it will be, or if you will or won’t get in for a particular game. Most people tend to queue up about an hour before kick-off.
You don’t need to be a member to come to games. It’s first come first served and the pub will not take table reservations. For certain games, we will give priority entry to LFC Vancouver members. Details of those games will appear on this website and on our social media.
The Blackbird Public House is open for some games. Please email them or contact them directly for reservations. They do allow table reservations and also allow children in the venue for Liverpool games when they are open.
LFC Vancouver Members:
Membership is sold out for this season. If you missed the cut-off, we can’t give you a membership.
You aren’t getting membership cards for this season. Membership cards are no longer valid. Your email receipt from the online store for this year’s membership is your proof of membership.
We are waiting for the Donnelly Group to get a few things ready for us before the European Cup photoshoot that we promised. Stay tuned. It’s about a month away.
We have a little extra something on the way for members. Again, stay tuned… it’s also about a month away.
For Liverpool’s next game vs Burnley at 9:30am on Saturday 31st August 2019, The Butcher will be open as normal. For this game, the Blackbird Public House will also be opening for Liverpool fans and their children. The Blackbird opened for the Arsenal game and for select games this season we are trialling opening this second venue.
To make a reservation at the Blackbird, please contact them directly via their reservation form – If your reservation is accepted you will get an email back from them within 24 hours.
LFC Vancouver promised a surprise for members this season. Those of you at the European Super Cup game today saw it in person! We now have a full-size replica of number 6!
Loads of people got pictures today, but don’t worry if you missed out. In the near future, we will organize a photoshoot. This will most likely take place after one of the later kick-off games. Each member can get a complimentary photo taken with a DSLR camera (no selfies here! haha) with the cup. Non-members can get one too if you make a donation to the club of $5.
Obviously, even though the cup is a replica, it’s still quite valuable. It won’t be available for photos unless we are there, and it will remain on display (out of reach) in the pub when games are not on.
Stay tuned to the website/social media for further details on when you can get your photo with the cup!
We will be meeting at The Butcher & Bullock for The Super Cup final on Wednesday, kick-off is at noon. We expect a big crowd, the pub was full to capacity for the Norwich game, so arrive as early as possible.
Going forward we won’t be sending out weekly emails advising when the next game is. Every single LFC game will be shown LIVE at The Butcher and Bullock. If you are still unsure when the next game is, you can check our website which has the upcoming fixtures listed.
Membership to LFC Vancouver is now full for the 2019/20 season. We cannot accept any more requests so please don’t ask, we are already at double the capacity of the Butcher and Bullock so can’t accommodate more.
