Atlético will have plenty of support at Anfield
Around 2,800 supporters will be at Anfield - among them, 10 supporters groups from Europe and one from New York. Atleti's tickets quota sold out immediately.
Atlético won't walk alone at Anfield in tomorrow's Champions League return leg tie. The Last 16 decider against Liverpool is the biggest game of the season for Atleti fans - even before the first leg, tickets for the game sold out almost immediately. Atlético have used up the whole of their ticket allocation for the clash - 2,800 fans will be cheering the team on from the Anfield Road end of the stadium on Wednesday night.
First Atlético supporters arrive in Liverpool
Such as the demand for tickets that Atleti could easily have doubled their allocated seats. The first wave of supporters arrived in Liverpool today although the majority will be travelling on the day of the game. The club has sent out a list of recommendations to those flying out for the game so that they can enjoy their time on Merseyside without any problems. Four charter flights have been hired - one for the squad, VIP club members and press which flew out today and three for travelling supporters which will fly out tomorrow. Most fans however, have made their own travel arrangements.
Several Atlético supporters groups will be at the game - including ones from Belgium, Scotland, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, France and New York. The Atlético meeting point on the day of the match will be at Williamson Square from 4pm onwards. Fans making their way to the stadium will be escorted by police - while this isn't obligatory, it is recommended by the club. Atleti have also issued information on how to get to the ground on public transport - bus and train.
