While stadiums typically hold a certain level of importance to a club, only a couple can boast being the sole reason for a team's existence. Going back to the year 1892, Liverpool FC was born through a debate regarding Everton's tenancy of the stadium. With Everton having stayed in the venue in 1884, a dispute occurred between Anfield's owner (and Everton's club president) John Houlding and Everton's board of directors. With Houlding wanting to sell the grounds to the club, and the club wanting to rent the grounds on a long-term basis, suffice to say a common ground could not be found. When the deal fell through, Everton left Anfield to eventually find Goodison Park and an unperturbed Houlding decided to form a team to occupy his now-vacant stadium. Originally fighting for the rights to use Everton Athletic, after the FA refused to recognise the team as Everton outright, Houlding eventually settled on Liverpool FC.
Under Brendan Rodgers’ leadership, the English team was expecting to go further than ever, especially when you consider the sheer amount of money that Rodgers’ had spent in cultivating a "new and improved team". With the sale of Luis Suarez, going for a reported seventy-five million pounds, Rodgers’ was given almost 150 million pounds to spend as he liked, and spend it he did! Having accrued a score of new talent, such examples including Adam Lallana, whose start with the reds may have been rocky, but later proved his purchase was warranted, earning himself a level of praise not given to many English players, or the equally young Alberto Moreno, whose work in the left-back made him a heavily desired player! Unfortunately, Rodger’s decisions to manage for the long-term didn’t quite cut it with club owners FSG (Fenway Sports Group), and it was quite the blow for faithful Liverpool fans when Rodger's dismissal occurred. While Rodger’s departure is indeed a sad occasion for both fans and team alike, the fact that his replacement, Jurgen Klopp (formerly of Borussia Dortmund) came in, left many folks excited at what’s in store for the boys in red! Of course with the honeymoon period over, the media has now placed Klopp under heavy scrutiny, and there's little doubt that this will be an important year for Klopp. Already we are seeing speculation on Klopp's fans for the upcoming transfer window.
Finishing in a middling 8th place in the Premier League, yet making it to the Europa League final, Liverpool's last season really was a mixed bag. It's never easy for a team that has a manager change-over near the end of the season, however the fact that Liverpool made it to the Europa League final is still nothing to laugh at. While Liverpool's performance during the final is certainly debatable, with Klopp taking on much of the responsibility despite criticisms of Moreno's performance. As the new 2016-2017 Premier League season draws near, predictions are already underway for Liverpool's performance, and it stands to reason that Liverpool tickets will remain high in demand! So find your ideal Liverpool match and prepare to be amazed for a match that you won't regret!
With Anfield working extensively with Liverpool's public transport operators, the stadium is well catered for in regards to public transport, while there is the Centenary Stand Car Park, on matchdays you'll find that the car park is reserved to fans with pre-booked parking passes, meaning that the best option is to take either the bus or taxi, usually from the city centre. As always, we recommend you arrive to Anfield early in order to maximise your time at this glorious stadium.
Fast, frequent and by far the most convenient, Liverpool's numerous buses to and from Anfield's doorstep are your best bet in regards to both value and ease, with the bus journey to the stadium usually taking around 20-25 minutes. While the dedicated 917 bus service from the city centre (St Johns Lane) is the most convenient, however there's also the services 17a, 17b, 17c (all from Queen Square Bus Station), and the 26 and 27 (from Liverpool ONE Bus Station). All of these bus services will roughly set you back around £1 per journey. There is also the aptly-named "Soccerbus", a convenient shuttle bus, that runs between Sandhills Station and Anfield costing about £1.80 for a return.
Liverpool's main station is Lime Street station, featuring a number of nation-wide connections, of course the station itself is still quite a walk from the stadium, and so it's better to hop on a train to one of the following stations. The closest station to Anfield is actually Kirkdale Station (on the Northern Line towards Ormskirk or Southport), though fans will need to walk at least half an hour before they get to the stadium. As such, visitors preferring the train may find it easier to take the train to Sandhills Station also on the Northern Line, as there's the aforementioned Soccerbus (which can even be obtained at the same time you buy your rail ticket to Sandhills).
In comparison to the relatively expensive taxis down south, taxis are a more or less reasonable affairs in Liverpool, with the average journey from the city centre costing about £10 to £13. This is by far the fastest method, but keep in mind time really varies significantly depending on traffic (with matchdays especially proving to be heavily congested).
While Anfield does discourage driving to the stadium, there is still the possibility to use the parking facilities of rival team Everton's stadium Goodison Park, which is actually only a 15 minutes walk from Anfield. While it's certainly a touch-more stressful, driving there early enough will see you beat the matchday rush-hour(s).

While stadiums typically hold a certain level of importance to a club, only a couple can boast being the sole reason for a team's existence. Going back to the year 1892, Liverpool FC was born through a debate regarding Everton's tenancy of Anfield Stadium. With Everton having stayed in the venue in 1884, a dispute occurred between Anfield's owner (and eventual Mayor of Liverpool) John Houlding and Everton's board of directors. With Houlding wanting to sell the grounds to the club, and the club wanting to rent the grounds on a long-term basis, suffice to say a common ground could not be found. When the deal fell through, Everton left Anfield to eventually find Goodison Park and an even more unperturbed Houlden decided to form his own team to occupy his now-vacant stadium.
Of course, while Houlden certainly had the business savvy, the club most remembers John McKenna who stood loyally by Houlding, and eventually kept and held Liverpool together for the following 30 years. Taking Liverpool rapidly up to the top of the English football league, many of Liverpool's players were originally recruited from Scotland and lead to the nickname "Team of all the Macs" due to the number of Scottish surnames. In fact with the team first being denied a chance to play in the Football League, they settled for a spot in the Lancashire League, where upon their first competitive game, Liverpool destroyed their opposition Higher Walton, with an extraordinary 8-0.
