Boycott Box Office Pay Per View

Boycott Box Office Pay Per View Spirit of Shankly are calling for a boycott of pay-per-view Premier League games starting with our fixture against Sheffield United on Saturday 24 October 2020. Why we are doing this We recognise supporters will be torn about following their team, but this is blatant exploitation.

They have [...]

The actions of the club owners and TV broadcasters once more highlight the need for a supporter-led review of football governance. So far, Liverpool Football Club have remained silent on both of these issues and Spirit of Shankly have written asking them to [...]

Response to Mayor Anderson

Response to Mayor Anderson Spirit of Shankly are angered by comments made by Liverpool City Mayor, Joe Anderson. The Mayor has chosen to speak out on a hypothetical matter, namechecking Liverpool FC supporters without discussion with those fans or fan groups. There is no evidence to support the Mayor’s perception that Liverpool supporters will break any lockdown regulations and gather outside of Anfield should football be resumed and played behind closed doors. LFC, in their statement on the matter, refer to their engagement with supporters’ groups. SOS raised this issue with the club, back on [...]
