Chester FC will receive 100% of the gate receipts from next month’s friendly clash with Champions League runners-up Liverpool FC after the Reds decided to aid the Blues’ cause.
Jurgen Klopp will be sending a strong side of first team players not on World Cup duty for the game at the Swansway Chester Stadium on Saturday, July 7, with the game the first of Chester’s pre-season schedule and the first of Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s Blues reign.
A sell-out of around 4,500 is expected and Liverpool have sold out of their allocation, housed in the South Stand and Swettenham Chemists Stand, and only limited standing tickets on the Harry McNally Terrace remain for Blues fans after the tickets went on general sale at the ground yesterday morning.
And the Blues will receive all of the monies from the eagerly anticipated clash.
“It is a great gesture from Liverpool and we will receive 100% of the gate receipts,” said Chester chairman David Harrington-Wright.
