Kopites is the collective term for supporters of Liverpool Football Club who once stood, and now sit, on the Kop at Anfieldmarker stadium.


Kop is short for Spion Kop, a South African hill and the scene of a battlemarker in the Second Boer War where a majority of the Liverpool Regiment had died.

A BBC Panorama television crew filmed at Anfieldmarker in 1964 to discuss what makes the average man act in unison with thousands of others.

It was said in the 1960s and 70s that the Kop was worth a goal start as they could suck the ball into the net.

Kopites are known around the world for their thunderous volume and loyal support for their club. They have a wide selection of songs which they sing regularly.
