History of The Stadium
Anfield is now considered the seventh biggest stadium in the UK. It first opened in 1884 and has been home to Liverpool F.C. since 1892. Before then, Everton had use of the stadium until 1891 due to a dispute over rent prices.
Since then the stadium has undergone numerous renovations, including its famed Kop stand, which was expanded in 1928 and capable of holding 30,000 people all standing! In the 1990s and after the infamous Hillsborough Disaster it was decided that the stadium become all-seating.
Anfield is now composed of four stands: The Kop, Centenary Stand, Anfield Road End and Main Stand. The stadium has hosted Premier League, UEFA Cup and Champions League games but is more renowned for its passionate and inventive supporters that create its unique atmosphere.
In 2019, Anfield Stadium was granted permission to hosts concerts as well as football events. Some of the 2019 headliners have been Bon Jovi and P!nk.
In May of 2019, Anfield hosted Rugby’s Magic Weekend, which was a standout weekend that saw Warrington defeat Wigan for a third time this season. There were also wins for the Catalan Dragons and Huddersfield, who celebrated a phenomenal 55-2 win against Hull.
