Anfield is a football stadium in Anfield, Liverpool, England which has a seating capacity of 54,074 making it the sixth largest football stadium in England. It has been the home of Liverpool F.C. since their formation in 1892. It was originally the home of Everton F.C. from 1884 to 1891, before they moved to Goodison Park after a dispute with the club president.
The stadium has four stands: the Spion Kop, the Main Stand, the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand and Anfield Road. The record attendance of 61,905, was set at a match between Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1952. The ground converted to an all-seater stadium in 1994 as a result of the Taylor Report which reduced its capacity.
Anfield is a traditional football ground situated in amongst rows of houses. The statue of Bill Shankly together with the Paisley gateway, you’ll never walk alone gates and the Hillsborough memorial make the outside just as special as the inside.
The Kop and the Main Stand are both single tiered whilst the Centenary Stand and Anfield Road end have two tiers. The main stand does however have a number of pillars. The Kop on a European night is very special. Although, everyone stands for the whole game so be ready to only sit down at half time!
Visiting supporters are in the lower tier of the Anfield road stand (on the main stand side) where there are seats for up to 3000 fans. Views are generally good but try to avoid the seats in the back three or four rows of the lower tier as it can become very difficult to see if people in front aren't sitting down.
The ground is located outside the city centre, but there are numerous pubs a short distance from the ground. The main away pub is The Arkles, located on Anfield Road (adjacent to the away end), but most pubs around the ground are welcoming of away fans. Fast-food outlets on Walton Breck Road and Oakfield Road, within a stone’s throw distance of the ground.
Parking isn't generally a problem. You have the choice of parking in secure car parks in the Goodison area at a cost of £6 or if you're early enough, you'll find spaces along the streets, also in the Goodison area.
It's a short walk through the park to Anfield and is well signposted. Bus and train links are very good.
