Anfield Road Stadium
Anfield Road Stadium is one of the best places in Liverpool for Liverpool fans. One of the most interesting notes about the stadium is that actually, Anfield built Liverpool FC, not Liverpool FC built Anfield as a stadium. Everton FC used the stadium in 1884 for the first 8 years. In 1892, when the rent dispute broke out with John Houlding, Anfield Stadium owner, Everton left Anfield Stadium and moved to Goodison Park. John Houlding, who remained with a huge stadium in his hand, also founded Liverpool FC.“Anfield Road” stadium is evaluated with 4 stars by UEFA. Its atmosphere can be unbelievable in match days.
Anfield is a real temple for Liverpool fans. Even ashes of some fans had been perfused to the stadium in history. Dramatically great for Liverpool fans!
You can explore the stadium and feel that atmosphere by buying a ticket for a tour.
