What they’re about:
We were unofficially founded in 2012. There were consistently 3 guys going to Piper’s Pub in Pittsburgh wearing LFC kits. One day we all 3 approached each other and discussed how to get more organized. Out of that impromptu meeting came the LFC Pittsburgh Facebook Page and Twitter.
As our numbers started to grow, we looked into the process of gaining OLSC status. We were approved as an OLSC in 2014 and have grown exponentially since. We outgrew Piper’s (which is a soccer pub for every fan, not a particular supporter’s bar) and wanted to guarantee the most numbers as possible, so we moved to our 2ndhome, Cain’s Saloon.
A few weeks ago we were approached about moving bars and were offered a deal that we couldn’t turn down. As of March 3, 2019 Fredo’s Bar and Eatery is the Official Home of LFC Pittsburgh.
We currently have 200+ members, of which 50+ are Official LFC members also. It is weird to think that this all started with 3 members meeting by chance.
The best memory for our club has to be the UCL Final in 2018. Even though we didn’t get our 6th, just having the pub packed with Reds and actually having to turn people away due to Fire Codes was an awesome experience.
Another awesome experience was sitting in The Big House and seeing Shaqiri score THAT goal against THAT team was great. Even though it was a preseason match, seeing that stadium with that many LFC Supporters was something to take in.
Match day Breakfast:
Nothing beats a great Irish Boxty, washed down with an IPA.
Favorite Liverpool FC moment for the Club?
The 2016 League Cup Final was an eye-opener for us as a club. That was the first HUGE turnout that we had. The pub was PACKED and when Coutinho equalized the place went crazy. We drank so much Carlsberg that day that we kicked all of the pub’s kegs and they had to go buy more.
