Sky Sports Fanzone will be made available to everyone for Liverpool vs Chelsea and the Premier League trophy lift on Wednesday evening, whether you're a Sky Sports subscriber or not.
Sky Sports will show Liverpool's game against Chelsea on July 22 and the presentation of the Premier League trophy free to air on Sky Pick.
Liverpool's players and staff will be presented with their medals and the Premier League trophy on a special podium built on the Kop, surrounded by fan banners. Sir Kenny Dalglish, Liverpool's manager when they last won the title in 1990, will be part of the trophy presentation party.
With matches still taking place behind closed doors, Liverpool supporters will be able to have their own Premier League title party at home and the ability to watch with family and friends thanks to Sky Sports Fanzone.
Liverpool vs Chelsea Watchalong
On Wednesday, join our special guests for the Watchalong from 8pm on Sky Sports Football.
Whether you're a Sky Sports subscriber or not, everyone will be able to use a new feature on the Sky Sports website on your phone (optimised on iOS for iPhone 8 and above), laptop or PC to watch select matches with friends in a video room and interact while the action unfolds, giving them the chance to chat about the match and influence the crowd noise they hear on screen.
Whether watching with fans of your own club or mixing with rival supporters, users of the feature can post predictions, join in-match polls and use the Sky Sports stats to fuel the virtual conversation.
Get into the game with family and friends
Invite up to five people to your Fanzone to catch the match together. Log in online on your phone, laptop or PC, set up your Fanzone and send a link to your fellow fans. The Fanzone opens an hour before before kick-off and will close after the trophy presentation at Anfield.
Play Fanzone Picks
You can also compete against friends and family in our new game 'Fanzone Picks'. Ahead of kick off, create a Fanzone and submit your predictions for 6 match scenarios such as 'will both teams score' or 'will there be 5 or more yellow cards'?
You'll earn points for each correct pick which will see you climb the fans leaderboard. Don't worry if you score poorly in the predictions, you can still redeem yourself by earning points for participating in our match polls such as 'choose the chant', and we'll also be testing your knowledge throughout the game with some 2019/20 trivia questions too. If you're in the top 3 overall players, your name will also be shown live on the Sky Sports Football channel leaderboard.
