History and description

Anfield was originally built in 1884, but it was initially rented by Everton FC. The first game at the ground, on the 28th of September 1884, saw Everton beat Earlstown 5-0. In 1891, Everton moved out of Anfield after a disagreement over the rent, and a year later, in 1892, Liverpool moved in. Their first match at Anfield was a 7-1 win over Rotherham.

In 1895, the construction of a new main stand designed by Archibal Leitch was completed. A decade later, in 1905, the construction of Spion Kop was completed.

The ground remained relatively unchanged for the next two decades until the Kop was expanded in 1928. Once completed, it could accommodate about 30,000 fans.

After falling to a low point in 1982 with just over 30,000 people in attendance, the stadium began a gradual resurgence that culminated in 2007 when it reached its all-time high of 52,623. Liverpool Football Club set the record for attendance at its home ground, Anfield, during the 1958 season when 61,905 people attended a match between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers. This record was improved upon between 1963 and 1973 when the old Main Stand got demolished and replaced with a new one. After falling to a low point in 1982 with just over 30,000 people in attendance, the stadium began a gradual resurgence that culminated in 2007 when it reached its all-time high of 52,623 people.

The 1966 World Cup did not take place at Anfield.

In the 1980s, work began to convert the stadium into an all-seater, with the Shankly Gates erected in 1982. The last significant changes to the stadium were made in the 1990s, with the rebuilding of the two-tiered Centenary Stand, then the conversion of the Kop into an all-seater stand, and finally in 1998 with construction of a second tier on the Anfield Road Stand.

Anfield was one of the venues of the European Football Championship, which took place in 1996. The venue hosted three group matches and the quarter-final between France and the Netherlands (0-0).

In the late 2000s, Liverpool contemplated moving away from Anfield to a larger and more modern stadium. However, inadequate funding delayed the plans, which were finally discarded in 2012.

The ownership of Anfield opted to redevelop and expand the stadium. The first phase involved the reconstruction of the Main Stand, which increased the stadium's capacity by 8,500 seats to a total of 54,047. Works started in January 2015 and were completed right before the start of the 2016-17 season.

If there is enough demand, Liverpool plans to add a possible expansion to the Anfield Road stand, which would result in a final capacity of about 59,000 seats.

How to get to Anfield

Anfield is located in the middle of the Anfield area, just half a mile away from Goodison Park. If coming by car from the M57 north, exit at junction 4 and drive toward Liverpool/A580. Follow the A580 for almost 4 miles until you reach Walton Hall Park on your right. After having passed Walton Hall Park, turn left onto Queens Drive (A5058). After half a mile turn right at the traffic lights onto Utting Avenue. Continue until you see the ground on your right.

If arriving from the south or east, approach the city on the M62 and follow for A5058 Queens Drive. When you come to an intersection at Utting Avenue, turn left. You will continue until you see the stadium on your right.

If using public transport, take bus 17 from Queens Square bus station which is almost opposite Liverpool Lime Street train station. Alternatively, you can take bus 26 or 27 from Paradise street which is also in the center, or bus 917 from St John's lane which leave you directly at the ground.

Address: Anfield Road, Liverpool, L4 0TH

Eat, drink, and sleep near Anfield

Anfield is located in the Liverpool area of Anfield which used to be rather derelict but has somewhat regenerated in recent years. It is bounded on one side by Stanfield Park and by terraced housing on the other sides. There is little to see and do around the stadium, though there are a few pubs for pre-match drinking. Expect them to get crowded though. There are many places to eat and drink in Liverpool's city centre. Most of the nightlife is located south and west of Liverpool Lime Street station, near Concert Square and Mathew Street.

. There are a few hotels near Anfield that offer good accommodations for those who want to be close to the football action. Soccer Suite, The Cabbage Hall Hotel, and Hotelanfield are all located close to the stadium, and have received good reviews. There are also a few other options in pubs or private residences.

If you plan to spend more time in Liverpool, it is likely more convenient to pick a hotel closer to the city centre, where there are many options.

The residents of the Victorian terraced houses and those that have been replaced by Elizabethan terraced houses are absolute gems. They put up with huge invasions 25 or more times a year and an extremely wealthy and dominant neighbor. The stadium itself is good, noisy and safe.

The recent transformation of the stadium and its immediate surroundings is remarkable. The Victorian terraced houses that used to be there have been replaced with Elizabethan terraced houses, which are loved by fans who have been following the team since the mid-sixties. Residents who live near the stadium put up with huge invasions by fans 25 or more times a year and an incredibly wealthy and dominant neighbor, and I think they are absolute gems.

The stadium itself is very good, noisy and safe.

The Liverpool City Council has a problem with the houses in the area. Liverpool bought up the properties some years ago to accommodate development that never happened. The area has been left to rot by its richest inhabitant. I have been going to Anfield since 1969.

The issue with the houses is that Liverpool bought them up a few years ago in order to accommodate development that never actually happened. This left the area to fall apart because it was inhabited by the richest person in the city. I've been going to Anfield since 1969 and I've never seen it this bad.

I can't believe how chaotic and violent this place looks. It's so unlike the pictures I've seen of it online. The people here look really decent and hard-working, but it's just so sad to see all of this destruction. I hope the regeneration is going well and that the community can regain its pride as soon as possible.

Remember that you are a guest when entering other people's neighbourhoods, and imagine how they may use your street/estate/etc. as a route to the ground. Without a doubt, L4 is the friendliest, and best place to go and watch football!!!

My wife got me a tour ticket for me and the family, I hadn't been to a ground since the Hillsborough disaster, everyone at Anfield made me feel so welcome and at ease. They treat everyone as family, it's the most friendliest place in Britain. It doesn't matter who you support you will always be made welcome at the home of football. Many thanks to every one at the club.

I don't think it's very nice of you to say that. One day, you won't be able to find a place to live around here once it's regenerated. It will be very in-demand and there are a lot of lovely people who live here.

Eventually, you will no longer be able to find a place to live in the area after it regenerates. It will be extremely popular and there are a lot of wonderful people who live there too.

Despite being inside a modern stadium, the magic of old-fashioned football is still felt within the ground's Kop stand. It is an impressive stand, considering how much newer stands have evolved in recent years. I think they did a good job of preserving its original look and feel.

Despite being inside a modern stadium, the magical feel of football from years ago still exists at Anfield. The Kop stand is an impressive structure, and it seems like they did a good job of preserving its original features. However, the player's exit gate was more impressive - it has that authentic '80s Liverpool feeling to it.
