Their decision follows the chaos in Paris when the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid was delayed by 36 minutes amid terrifying scenes outside the Stade de France, where thousands of fans could not enter the stadium.

The initiative will benefit around 500 fans, parents and children under the age of 16, who were present at the Paris final and victims of reprisals by French police, who even used pepper spray.

Liverpool is keen to change the narrative around football and provide children with a "safe space" to enjoy the sport. Liverpool believes that this initiative will "provide a level of comfort and reassurance so that they feel able and confident to attend football matches, both home and away, in the future."

Poor organization before the main event resulted in fans being crushed dangerously against the railings before being pushed back by law enforcement with pepper spray and tear gas. Children were on the scene, forced to cope with the fear and chaos that broke out. Many fans were also mugged in the surroundings of the stadium.
