Liverpool
Football Club and Manchester United Football Club are calling on their
fans to help eradicate any offensive or discriminatory behaviour ahead
of their Premier League clash at Anfield on Monday 17 October.

The
clubs continue to work together and respect the great rivalry between
them but will not condone any offensive or discriminatory behaviour in
Anfield Stadium or Old Trafford.

In a joint statement,
the clubs said: “Both clubs, their supporters and football fans around
the world are looking forward to this historic and passionate match
between two of the sport’s biggest and oldest rivals.

“There
is great rivalry between our fans and we ask all supporters to be
respectful and help eradicate all forms of offensive and discriminatory
behaviour from the game.

“If any supporters are found
to be engaged in any form of offensive or discriminatory behaviour by
stewards or via CCTV then they will be immediately removed from the
stadium, risk arrest, prosecution and be reported in accordance with the
club’s ground regulations.

“This is an unrivalled
fixture in the Premier League calendar and we thank all fans for their
continued support in this important area of the game.”

According
to the host broadcaster, Liverpool and Manchester United games are the
biggest club games in world football and will likely be seen by an
estimated 700 million people in over 200 countries.

A
spokesperson from Kick it Out, added: “Both Liverpool and Manchester
United should be commended for this proactive approach ahead of this
important fixture. We always encourage supporters to report any form of
discrimination they may see or hear. Our reporting app, which is
available to download from the App Store and Google Play, allows users
the option to attach photos and videos.”

Liverpool v
United will take place at Anfield on Monday 17 October with kick-off at
20:00 BST. More information about the ground regulations is published in
