This Is Anfield
Built in 1884 Anfield is one of the most famous grounds in world football, 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 dispute over the rent, and one year later newly-founded Liverpool moved in, their first match at Anfield was a 7-1 win over Rotherham.
In the 1980s, a start was made to convert the stadium into an all-seater, and in 1982 the famous Shankly Gates were erected. The last significant changes to the stadium were made in the 1990s, first with the rebuilding of the two-tiered Centenary Stand, then with the conversion of the Kop into an all-seater stand, and finally in 1998 with the construction of a second tier on the Anfield Road Stand.
With demand for tickets greater than ever as Klopp’s men challenge for glory on all fronts at home and abroad, a bigger Anfield can’t come soon enough. Around 5,000 of the extra seats will be general admission with another 2,000 in new hospitality lounges, with around 20,000 supporters on a season-ticket waiting list, which has been closed to new applications since 2011.
This represents phase two of the redevelopment of Anfield, following the opening of the new £110 million Main Stand in 2016 that added an extra 8,500 seats and helped regenerate the local area. Before the pandemic hit two years ago this month, it had helped match-day revenues climb from £62 million to £81 million per season. With the final phase of the redevelopment close to completion Anfield will be at 61,000 capicity one of the biggest club grounds in the UK.
