Why Join?

The Spirit of Shankly is the UK’s first independent supporters’ union.

It represents its members’ interests which are to see Liverpool Football Club not only the most successful side in the world but also conducting itself having proper respect and taking account of our members’ (and by extension our supporters) concerns and issues.

The Union seeks to see management, players and supporters acting as one and to safeguard the best interests of Liverpool Football Club in the future.

We seek a positive and constructive dialogue with whoever owns the Club and the expectation that they continuously recognise supporters as the custodians of the club’s heritage, standards and expectations.

It's been a busy time lately with plenty happening that affects us all. We've seen other football clubs announce new ticket price reductions for supporters and we've been pushing LFC for answers on what they will be doing next for supporters, which is ongoing. It won't have escaped the attention of supporters that ticket prices are also making it more difficult for young people to actually go the match and we've worked with German Reds on a 'Tix4Kids' initiative to tackle this issue. 
This is on top of all the other things we are doing, which give you plenty of reasons to renew:
- To support our on-going campaign for cheaper home and away match tickets which is gathering increasing momentum
Our travel to away games which is consistently the cheapest for any supporter
- To take advantage of our Season Ticket Loan scheme in conjunction with Partners Credit Union
- You can vote for the Management Committee, at EGM’s and AGMs and decide our policy
- We can represent you when you need our help, from season ticket issues with the club to policing and stewarding at away matches

There are plenty of reasons for you to renew. None are more important than, as supporters and members, us sticking together to improve things for the betterment of us all. All of us, pulling in the same direction, can see us win on campaigns like ticketing and will ensure that supporters' voices are heard as we speak up about the issues that affect us all.

Why should I renew?
The Liverpool Supporters' Union have been actively involved in campaigning in a number of high profile areas. To effectively campaign we need volunteers and active members to get involved, make suggestions and come up with new ideas.  Our current campaign is around the issue of ticket prices for home and away games and falls under the campaign banner #footballwithoutfansisnothing. This is gathering increasing momentum with a £200,000 fund per club per season allocated for away fan initiatives and some clubs looking at reciprocal ticket price reduction deals for away fans.

The Liverpool Supporters' Union acts of behalf of members who have grievances with official bodies. We have represented members on numerous occasions, or we have been able to refer them to organisations who can pursue their grievance. We are currently pursuing a claim on behalf of members who travelled back from Sunderland but were refused permission to stop off for comfort breaks on coaches - Sunderland/Durham Police Complaint.
