Following Liverpool Football Club’s application to trademark ‘Liverpool’ Spirit Of Shankly requested a meeting. Today, LFC held talks with SOS and other interested parties.
It was a constructive meeting and there does appear to be some common ground. There has been no confirmation of detail as yet, but the club have undertaken to corroborate their verbal assurances.
As long as LFC continue to pursue this course of action, SOS will oppose it on moral, social and ethical grounds. We will though continue to work with all parties to achieve a satisfactory solution so that those who use the name ‘Liverpool’ – local football clubs and traders among them – will retain the right to do so.
We will update our members and publish further details as we receive them from the club.
