Rome security plan for Liverpool fans

Liverpool fans urged to socialise in Campo de' Fiori and Largo C. Ricci

Rome security chiefs have issued safety guidelines for the 5,000 Liverpool fans expected in Rome for the Champions League semi-final second leg against AS Roma at the Olympic Stadium on 2 May.

Liverpool fans have been encouraged to socialise at bars and restaurants located in Campo de' Fiori and Largo Corrado Ricci (at the Roman Forum end of Via Cavour).  

Rome police officials are hoping that the British fans will congregate in both areas - rather than disperse throughout the city - making it easier to provide security.

The Rome security plan follows violent clashes between supporters of AS Roma and Liverpool outside Anfield Stadium on 24 April. British authorities have identified "30-40" Liverpool fans considered a possible security risk in Rome.

The British embassy to Italy has issued important travel advice for Liverpool fans, including the location of ticket collection points, information on how to get to the stadium, and areas of the city to avoid.

About 63,000 Roma fans have tickets for the much-anticipated game which kicks off at 20.45 on 2 May.
