I have an offer from Manchester (AAA) alongside two others in the UK. I want to ask what will happen if you wear your team's shirt in a rival city. I think that I will be putting all my Liverpool shirts away if I go to Manchester, especially when United is playing at home. There may be people hurting me and singing abusive chants at me if I wear a Liverpool shirt, given that Liverpool vs Man Utd is the biggest football rivalry in the country.
I have seen news articles of a Man Utd fan being headbutted in a Leeds pub. Will this happen to all rivalries in the UK?

I think it's quite immature to make a big deal over a shirt. Leeds' rivals are Huddersfield, so I'm not sure whether the incident occurred over that. However, if not wearing a Liverpool shirt makes you feel safe, then that's ok.

Depending where you go you might not be allowed to wear such things, esp if the clubs/locations have bad blood.

I'm up in Scotland and wearing football tops in most educational/professional environments is a big nono, you'd be sent home. No one gives a monkeys if you wear a Rugby/Hockey jersey though.

I think you'll get beat up regardless of location.

Especially for teams with rivalries? Such as Liverpool vs Man Utd?

There will be pubs that will refuse you entry if you are wearing football colours. Or if you are a visiting supporter (in the case of Manchester United, the tourists may be allowed in).

Liverpool is a small and unknown club anyway so nothing will happen.
