Football, as it is known throughout the world, or soccer as it is called in the United States, is the most popular sport in the world. Millions enjoy playing the sport, and many millions more enjoy watching and supporting their favorite clubs. While fans generally support clubs that are close to where they live, a few football clubs around the world enjoy popularity where they have supporters everywhere. One such club that enjoys popularity around the world is the Liverpool Football Club.
The Reds, as Liverpool FC are known, has been around since 1892. The club was formed when Everton Football Club, split off and began playing at Goodison Park. That left Liverpool FC the team playing at Anfield in Liverpool, England. The club was founded in March 1892 by John Houlding and was officially recognized by the English Football Association in June 1892. The Red have been a force in professional football ever since.
Over the course of the past century, Liverpool FC has been participating in the top league in England and has competed in worldwide competitions. It has participated and has been successful in the top English leagues, winning the championship on 18 different occasions. In addition, it has won the European Cup or Champions League 6 times, including in 2019. Liverpool FC has also been successful in winning several domestic competitions.
However, not everything has gone well during the course of the club's history. The club was involved in two of the sports biggest tragedies. In 1985 during the European Cup Championship, 39 people lost their lives when a wall collapsed at Heysel Stadium in Belgium. And in 1989 the Hillsborough disaster occurred when 96 Liverpool fans were crushed and died against fencing.
Reds supporters are among the most loyal in the world, and despite tragedies they have enjoyed the success that the club has achieved. Whether a game is being played at Anfield in Liverpool or at an away stadium, the fan support will be second to none. It's at these games you will hear the supporters singing the Liverpool FC anthem, "You'll Never Walk Alone"
