King Power Stadium will welcome supporters for one final time in 2021.

Due to new COVID-19 regulations, supporters aged 18 and over will be required to complete and sign an online pre-registration form (valid for the season) to show they have understood and agree to updated conditions of entry. These require all adult supporters to have certification that demonstrates they are any one of the following:

- Fully vaccinated (currently a full course of vaccination without the need for a booster);
- Able to provide evidence of a negative lateral flow test in the 48 hours preceding the event;
- Eligible for medical exemption

This means that those aged 18 years or over must have a valid NHS COVID Pass, or an alternative proof of a negative test result, to gain entry into the stadium.

In addition to the requirement for supporters to pre-register, the Club is required to conduct COVID-19 certification spot checks at turnstiles, to ensure supporters are adhering to the requirements of the UK Government’s Autumn/Winter Plan B. It is therefore advised that supporters arrive early to allow time for these checks to take place prior to kick-off.

Supporters that fail to pre-register or provide appropriate COVID certification on request risk being refused entry and tickets will not be refunded.

Harvey Barnes completed the scoring for Leicester in last season’s home victory over the Reds.

James MaddisonJamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes were all on the scoresheet within seven minutes as Leicester City secured a thrilling 3-1 comeback triumph over Liverpool in February.

Mo Salah’s first-half goal was cancelled out as the Foxes hit back late on to register the win in the last Premier League meeting between the two sides at King Power Stadium.

The reverse fixture saw Jürgen Klopp's side emerge victorious at Anfield, however, as Jonny Evans’ own goal and strikes from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino confirmed the hosts’ 3-0 victory.

The Reds also triumphed in last week's Carabao Cup Quarter-Final tie, winning on penalties after a 3-3 draw in normal time.
