In fact, the waiting list for season tickets was closed as far back as 2017.

Is There Any Other Way To Be A Mascot For Liverpool?

There is a charitable arm of the football club called the LFC Foundation.

It was formed in 2010, and works with schools and communities across the area to ‘deliver sustainable and long-term change for communities’.

Occasionally they do offer mascot experiences to bid on to raise funds for the Foundation, which then goes back into the local community.

As a rough guide to what price these go for, the winning bidder for a mascot experience in 2017 paid £3,000.

To keep abreast of these opportunities it is best to follow the LFC Foundation Facebook page.

What Do You Get When You Are a Mascot for Liverpool?

Obviously the most common thought that springs to mind when you are a mascot is walking out onto the pitch with your heroes, but if you are chosen to be a Liverpool mascot you actually get much more than that.

You will also get:

  • A free trip around the Liverpool museum.
  • Tickets for one child and two guests in the Liverpool end.
  • Free food and drinks.
  • A free matchday programme.
  • A photo opportunity with the players.

Basically it is an experience you will never forget!

Does Liverpool Have An Official Mascot?

Liverpool only introduced an official club mascot in 2012.

That was when Mighty Red made his first appearance! Mighty Red is a Liver bird, a mythical creature that is the official symbol of the city of Liverpool.

The mascot was initially introduced purely to support the club’s work in the community but now has a small matchday role as well.

Liverpool was one of the last Premier League clubs to resist introducing an official club mascot, the only other Premier League club that has still resisted is their Merseyside rivals Everton.
