The club won't turn you away as long as you're appropriately covered.
I don't know what the rules are for the posh seats but the club is clamping down on bags. One problem with womens clothes is that they seldom come with pockets so you do need to consider where you're going to store your wallet, phone, keys etc.

Whilst it seems odd there is actually a reason for this. I actually met her dressed up in fancy dress at a Halloween party a good few years ago.
She has taken a liking to it and we have been on a few dates where we have swapped "roles" just to add that bit of fun.
It's can seem odd or weird but we keep it sensible and don't wear or do anything outrageous. As long as we are not doing anything to harm others.
In this case, we had a good chat this weekend and decided probably best not do it for match at Anfield but maybe something to do in the evening in the centre after the match. :)

Lol see if you’d shared that at the start you wouldn’t have created such a filthy ruckus …

Have a cracking time however you choose to dress good sir, and congrats on having such a fun and happy spirit.

I never take a bag as normally have my jeans/coat pockets but for the villa game decided to take a bag as no pockets at all. Thought the steward would get a tape measure out just to be sure I could be let in.

Never taking a bag again even when it is sunny, just going to pass my stuff around for others with pockets to carry.

I guess you are right, I didn't even think about it to be honest.
Thanks for the kind words,

don't do what my mate did and leave your handbag on the floor of the pub with your phone and wallet in it.

Fortunately someone handed it in and he retrieved it behind the bar of the pub an hour or so after we left there!

Each to his own but it reeks of 'pay attention to me'.Film it all on ya cell phone and have a crappy cardboard  sign,what's wrong with just taking in the atmos and match?

Agree 100%.  Just go and enjoy the match in your normal clothes. Anfield isn’t a fancy dress venue and if you pitch up in a dress you’ll likely attract unwanted attention which may spoil your first visit

it's fine, there's usually a handful of people wearing dresses (or 'overdressed' for football standards). as long as you're comfortable its' fine.

do think it's slightly weird in that you're doing it to 'add fun' to your first visit, though, and not due to your identity or style. but i guess it beats you turning up dressed like a banana or something.

Don't know why this response made me laugh so much ;D

Re the OP, wear what you want (I know you've seemingly made a decision anyway). But as this thread has made clear, ultimately some people will judge you for what you wear to a football match, whether that be a particular scarf, or a hat, or a dress etc. There will be some in the crowd with less progressive attitudes, and it only takes one person to spoil your day. They shouldn't, and it shouldn't matter what you wear, but they might, and you'll have no control of that. So if I were you I'd probably not take the risk. If this was something that was at the core part of your identity and it was important for you to wear a dress to be honest to yourself, you might think it worth the risk. But it seems like it's more for a bit of fun, which doesn't seem worth potentially ruining your day over.

If you were trans and wanted to wear a dress then go for it

If you're just doing it to be a jester then don't be a twat, get your shirt on and go cheer for the reds as loud as you can

It’s two things for me - personal safety and the appropriateness of being somewhere more formal like hospitality.

With regard to the second point, open hospitality I’m sure wouldn’t be an issue and I suspect most people would go no further than assuming you were doing it for a dare or on a stag etc, but if you happened to procure the tickets for a box/private table from a company I would take a moment to fathom the possible implications of dressing up in a manner that some people might take a dim view of - especially if it’s a corporate ticket where the vibe is normally more serious / for entertaining clients etc.

Re the first point you will just have to ask yourself if it’s worth it for, essentially, a brief private laugh between you and your partner. Ultimately we all like to hope that we live in a more grown up society and can allow people to live their lives in whatever way makes them happy, but sadly football - of all pastimes - seems to attract more knuckledraggers and repressed weirdos than most, so it only takes one flashpoint - likely with away fans - for your day to be eviscerated and in a worst case scenario, physical injury.

Ultimately if you are both genuinely cross-dressers or one or both of you is trans/gender fluid/on a gender/sexuality journey and you’re sincere then go and own the moment as long as you’re happy that the benefits outweigh the potential pitfalls

Thanks for all the replies.

We have both decided that we better not risk it and just enjoy the day as normal.

We had a good walk around Anfield today and you to see the beautiful mural's.

Anyone have advice on what bus back to the centre would be the best one to get after the game? I am guessing the no.17 back to the centre will take ages due to the amount of people queuing for it after the game.

I messed up on the registration and only got 1 ticket 😂
But I managed to get that ticket and it's for my wife. Will she have to sign up for a membership so I can transfer the ticket to her or can she just use my account?
I will be attending my first ever home match at Anfield for the upcoming West ham game on the 24th September.
My girlfriend managed to get us hospitality tickets as a birthday present for me (I am so lucky!).

All things considered, it's probably best to not let your wife know that you're planning on wearing your girlfriend's dress to the match..........a little red number might be a wee bit conspicuous if you're playing away when the Reds are playing at home
