Capacity: 54,074

Address: Anfield Road, Liverpool, L4 0TH


Ground

Anfield is one of the largest football grounds in English football, built in 1884 and has been home to Liverpool Football Club since their formation in 1892. Anfield has hosted international football, including matches at UEFA Euro 1996, as well as several rugby league matches.

The Kop is the most well known stand of the ground and it is one of the great sights in world football to hear ‘You’ll Never Walk Along’ sung by the Liverpool fans pre-kickoff.

There were proposals in recent years to move Liverpool away from Anfield, however these proposals have been dismissed and the club have since expanded the Main Stand, with further expansion expected in the coming years.
