VIP / Media issue. 132 pages.
This issue was produced by the Italian FA for the media and was available in the VIP area of the stadium. It has been confirmed to us by a Liverpool supporter who attended the match that it was also on general sale outside the stadium. He purchased his copy at the match. Another supporter has informed us he purchased his copy inside the stadium for around three pounds. The Liverpool Daily Post also made reference to it in a supplement they produced the day after the match. Click on the arrow to read the article; the final paragraph is the relevant one. We believe it to fair to consider this the official programme for the match.








Unofficial issue. 16 pages.
This issue was produced by the Manchester programme shop, a UK based dealer. It has been confirmed to us by a Liverpool supporter who attended the match that this issue was on sale in Rome on the day of the match.

There would appear to be a number of reproductions of this programme in circulation. One reproduction we have seen is easily identified when compared to the original. The paper is thicker and the pink background used on most pages is much brighter. It is also slightly smaller than the original; so there is less of a margin beneath the final text. On the front cover, this is noticeable beneath the line 'Wednesday 25th May ...' Click on the arrow to view the front cover. Other reproductions may be different.

They are for the south terrace, the north terrace, the tiber stand, and the central stand (VIP ticket). The first two tickets have no numbers.

What a fantastic collection/selection of memorabilia from that most famous occasion in '77', I was 13 at the time in Roma at the game with my cousin an avid Leeds supporter, it seems like yesterday, and the amazing 5 day coach journey you couldn't make up the events that took place, incredible, film material, never to be forgotten.
