Football Glossary: The Kop

(the) Kop

This is the stand where traditionally the most vociferous (loud, enthusiastic) Liverpool fans used to stand. Sometimes used to describe all Liverpool fans. Though other stadiums have a ‘Kop’, it is generally associated with Liverpool.

    • Example: The Kop generally have a good reputation as knowledgeable fans that appreciate good football so they sometimes applaud the opposition as well as their own side.
    • Example: Steven Gerrard leaps into the air in front of the Kop after scoring a brilliant long range effort in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Norwich (2013).
