A Liverpool supporters group from Worcester is on its way to Paris to watch the Champions League Final.

106 members from The Worcestershire Liverpool Supporters Group are making the 412 mile, 10-hour trip to the French capital for the game that see Liverpool looking to win a seventh European Cup against 13-time winners Real Madrid at the Stade de France on Saturday evening (8PM BST).

The group itself has not been running long but there are now over 1000 members, with a number of them lucky enough to have tickets for the final.

And those lucky few have Nathan Martin, from Evesham, to thank.


Mr Martin set up the non-profitable organisation that raises funds through coach travel, raffles and other means in order to pay for members to go and watch the Reds play inside the last year.

Coaches have ran throughout the season to various games, including the FA Cup and League Cup Finals at Wembley earlier this year as well as Premier League matches.

And now Mr Martin is responsible for providing many individuals and families within Worcestershire the chance to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity in Paris this weekend.

Worcestershire Liverpool Supporters Group organise trips for families

"I started this group with an idea that any money made would be pumped back into it," he said.

"We are an official non-profitable organisation that gives back to the Reds all season. We have sent kids and mums to games for free at times for instance.

"When we do a coach to Anfield we make no money, we give the kids money back for programmes, free scarves. We also buy signed shirts and give them away to people on the coach.

"What we have done with this group is truly fantastic. The amount of smiles we have put on children's faces this year is unreal.

"I set this group up to help people who couldn't get ticket just like I couldn't. It's worked its way from nothing to eventually taking 106 people on coaches to Paris this weekend and my ultimate reward is me getting a ticket as well!

"This is my group I'm very passionate about it."
