History of Anfield Stadium
Anfield is now considered the fifth-biggest football stadium in the UK. It opened in 1884 and has been home to Liverpool F.C. since 1892. Before then, Everton had used the stadium until 1891 due to a dispute over rent prices.
Since then, Anfield Stadium has undergone numerous renovations, including its famed Kop Stand, which was expanded in 1928 and can hold 30,000 people all standing! Anfield set its record attendance when 61,905 fans attended Liverpool v Wolves in 1958. It was decided that Anfield would become all-seating in the 1990s and after the infamous Hillsborough Disaster.
Anfield served as one of the playing locations for three group matches and the quarterfinal between France and the Netherlands during the Euro 1996 tournament (0-0). Liverpool discussed leaving Anfield in the late 2000s in favour of a larger and more modern football stadium, and they eventually received planning approval for a brand-new 60,000-seat stadium at Stanley Park. However, due to insufficient funds, the plans were delayed and finally discarded in 2012 by the club’s new owners. The new ownership resulted in Anfield being redeveloped.
Anfield is now composed of four stands: The Kop, Centenary Stand, Anfield Road End and Main Stand. Anfield 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.
Liverpool FC has achieved many firsts in football history. On the 22nd August 1964, Liverpool and Arsenals match highlights were shown for the first time on BBC’s Match of the day! In addition, Liverpool’s game against West Ham United was the first game ever transmitted into colour on Match of the day back in November 1969.
Facilities and structure
The Anfield Stadium is one of the most famous football stadiums in the world.
The Kop Stand
The Kop Stand is located behind one of the goalposts inside Anfield. The Reds adopted the name ‘The Kop Stand’, many years ago when a battle broke out in Africa on a steep hill. As a result of the battle, hundreds of soldiers were left dead. Most of the soldiers had traits of Lancashire in their bloodline, with a strong contingent with Liverpool.
The Main Stand
The newest remoulded Stand in the stadium is known as the Main Stand. The Stand was refurbished in September 2016 and now has a capacity of 20,676 in one Stand! The Stand’s structure consists of three tiers, including 105 disabled seats.
The Kenny Danglish Stand
The Sir Kenny Danglish stand is named after a legendary football manager and player. The Stand was well known as the Kemlyn Stand when not long after been changed to its current title. When in the Stand, you can see two tiers that can fit 12,000 supporters. In addition to this, the Stand also has executive boxes and banquet lounges available too.
The Anfield Road End Stand
The Anfield Road End Stand is opposite the Kop Stand and was last refurbished in the 1990s. This Stand only has two tiers, with the second tier being relatively small; it has held the position as the seating area for the away supporters of the football ground.
