David Reed, Financial Services Officer at Oscar Winson is a huge fan of the Liverpool football team. And why wouldn’t he be? There are plenty of reasons why this team is loved by people, not only in Liverpool but all over the world.
Liverpool Football Club, ranked among the top league football clubs in the world, is based in the city of Liverpool, England. This club has received the maximum number of European trophies as compared to any other football team. It has won three UEFA Super Cups, five European Cups, and three UEFA Cups. Liverpool FC also prides itself on eighteen League titles, eight League Cups, seven FA Cups as well as fifteen FA Community Shields. The team has thrice been ranked at the second position, falling closely short of a prestigious Premier League title.
David Reed highlights that Liverpool FC is among the most supported European football clubs. It has a global fan base including over two hundred official supporter clubs in almost 50 nations. Some of the most popular groups include Reclaim The Kop and Spirit of Shankly. The club makes good use of its support when it travels for its global summer tours.
David Reed recalls that in the 2013-2014 football season, Liverpool made an unexpected charge for the title and finished at the second place behind Manchester City. Subsequently, it returned to the prestigious Champions League with a score of 101 goals.
In the year 2013-14, Liverpool was ranked the ninth highest earning club all over the world. Its annual revenue was €306 million. It was also awarded the eighth most valuable club in the year 2015. The value placed on the club was a whopping $982 million! David Reed says that there is something extremely thrilling about watching Liverpool play against its key rivals, Everton and Manchester United.
Liverpool, as a football club, has managed to develop its own culture. Its fans were actually a part of “Fearless”, a Pink Floyd composition that has excerpts from the popular song “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. For David Reed, if it is football, it has to have Liverpool as one of the contenders!
