Liverpool founding year

John Houlding established Liverpool in 1892 following a dispute with the committee that ran Everton at the time. The businessman was the club’s president and also owned the land that Anfield sits on. But as the dispute reached its peak, he split from Everton and built Liverpool.

Liverpool moved from their long-time training ground at Melwood to a new, state-of-the-art facility in Kirkby in November 2020. The club’s move to a new complex also brought together the first-team and academy at the same facility. The Kirkby site reportedly cost the Reds £50m to build.
