My girlfriend's family are visiting us from Portugal this month, and her nephew who is 2.5 is football mad so would like to take him to the Liverpool game. Does he need a ticket or can I just take him in?

I think the official rules are he needs a ticket, but lots of people around where my season ticket is seem to bring their young kids every now and then and they dont seem to have a specific seat.

For people who take their young kids every now and then, what do you do? Thanks

I think the official rules are he needs a ticket, but lots of people around where my season ticket is (Holmesdale lower, block C) seem to bring their young kids every now and then and they don't seem to have a specific seat.
For example bloke next to me usually comes with his grown up son, for the last game he was there with his wife and 2 younger sons (about 3 & 5 years old I'd guess). But every seat around me is a season ticket so they've just squeezed in with their parents.

For people who take their young kids every now and then, what do you do? Can I just carry him through the turnstiles with me? Thanks

I'd say you'd need a ticket.

If you ask the box office - they are a lot more helpful than they were years ago.

I’ve taken my youngest and just had him stand in front of me and walk in, as there’s no one on the turnstiles anymore. A toddler you could pick up and carry in, 99% sure you would be fine, but if your not , you’ll have to pick him up from lost property at the end of the game

I wonder if I shave my beard and wear a pair of knappies, a bonnet and maybe hold a little rattle or a teddy bear and cry loudly on Holmesdale Road as if I'd lost my mummy or daddy that I could save myself 30 odd quid?

Yes, and you'll also get a free ride to the loony bin.

Or if you want a beer after the game make sure the nipper has some id with his mums name so she can collect to save the poor mite any undue duress.

100% you will need a ticket
Took my grandson (2 years old) last year - thought he’d be ok on my lap. Refused entry at turnstile. Health and safety issues- everyone has to have a allocated seat. F#### big nightmare!.
Got it sorted in the end.
Sorry, you’ll wii need a a ticket for the youngster.
Hope this helps.
Up the palace,
