Anfield Stadium History

Two gates in the stadium are named after former managers of Liverpool: Bob Paisley and Bill Shankly. In addition, just outside the stadium, there is a statue of Shankly.

The History of AnfieldAnfield was opened in 1884, and it was originally owned by John Orrel, a friend of John Houlding, a member of the Everton football club. At the time, Everton were in need of a new venue, and this resulted in Orrel renting the pitch to the club for a small amount. During Everton's tenure, many matches were played in Anfield including the British Home Championship between England and Ireland, in 1889. In 1892, Everton's attempt to purchase the land from Orrel led to a dispute, which led to Everton's move to another stadium and the formation of Liverpool F.C by Orrel. Liverpool's first match at Anfield was played on 1 September 1892. In the following decades, new stands were gradually erected, but the most significant addition was the redesign of Spion Kop, which was extended to hold 30,000 spectators, making it the largest Kop stand at the time. In 1957 the stadium installed floodlights, and in 1973 it underwent its most extensive redevelopment, in which the old Main Stand was demolished and replaced by an all-new one. The following years saw further expansions of Anfield, with another significant structural change occurring in 1998 with the opening of the new two-tier Anfield Road end, and the addition of support poles and stanchions in 1999-2000 after complaints from fans about movements of the top tier.
