Information about Liverpool FC

Throughout history, Liverpool FC has proven to be the most successful English team. The club won the national title 19 times and the highest European title six times. The club was founded in 1892 by John Houlding. Everton previously played at Anfield. John Houlding was the owner of the property, and after a dispute, Everton relocated, and John founded Liverpool FC.

A club with great international appeal. Liverpool FC has more than 200 fan clubs in more than 50 countries.

Unfortunately, the club has endured two major disasters in the past. The first was the Heysel drama at the 1985 game against Juventus, in which part of the stadium collapsed, and 39 people died. This accident was caused by fans of Liverpool FC, who rioted violently. Following this event, Liverpool was banned from all European events for five years.

After being banned from European games, the focus shifted to domestic games. After a few successful years with two English titles and an FA Cup, another stroke of fate struck. In the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, there were too many fans in the stadium, and 96 people were crushed to death in the huge crowd.

Fortunately, Liverpool FC has been spared such events in recent years.

The FC crest has changed a lot over the years. This will probably remain the case in the future. Normally, Liverpool FC changes its crest regularly after an event. Only the mythical bird “Liver Bird” survived the times. Below are the achievements over the years.

Interesting detail: On the occasion of the club’s 100th anniversary, the title of the club’s anthem, “You’ll never walk alone,” was included in the coat of arms. The last update was in 2017 on the occasion of the 125th birthday. At that time, the years 1892 and 2017 were also added.
