Norway and Liverpool – a love story

Wayne Farry

The connection between Liverpool and Norway dates back decades

Liverpool, as one of the most successful football clubs in English history, are naturally well-supported. But what many people don’t know is that the club has a particularly passionate fan base in Norway.

Starting out in the 1970s when English football (and particularly Liverpool) matches were aired on Norwegian television, the club’s fanbase in the country has grown in number and in fervour.

JOE traveled to Anfield and to Hotel TIA ahead of a recent game to speak to some Norwegian fans, and find out what it is about Liverpool that has captured the imagination of so many people in the country.
