Claret Jug Visits Anfield Ahead of The Open

May 24, 2017

The Claret Jug, golf’s most iconic trophy, made a special appearance at Anfield for Liverpool’s last game of the season against Middlesbrough yesterday.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, joined LFC Legend and official Open Ambassador Kenny Dalglish on the pitch to share the Claret Jug with the fans.

Ahead of the 146th staging of the Championship at Royal Birkdale from 16-23 July, Liverpool FC has teamed up with The Open to offer fans the chance to see the world’s greatest golfers play the famous Southport links in their quest to become Champion Golfer of the Year.

Reds fans can purchase hospitality tickets for the historic Championship and join LFC footballing legend Kenny Dalglish at the Hillside Clubhouse, situated at the iconic Hillside Golf Club next to Royal Birkdale.

Fans who purchase hospitality tickets through Liverpool FC will receive a free pair of Open Championship cufflinks with each purchase.

Johnnie Cole-Hamilton, Executive Director – Championships at The R&A, said: “The Open is a true celebration of golf and one of the world’s great sporting events. We look forward to working with Liverpool FC to help promote The Open’s return to the historic links at Royal Birkdale for the tenth time this summer.”

There are still packages remaining for the Hillside Club where you can join Kenny Dalglish and these are available through the LFC Hospitality team.
