Anfield ​​​​Kop

Anfield Kop End is arguably the most famous stand in all of football and has a rich history of its own.

Anfield Kop is actually derived from the name Spion Kop, and is a generic term given to all single-tiered stands. 

The Spion Kop was a battle held in South Africa in January 1900, and the nearby hill Ladysmith was known for how steep it was.

Anfield Stadium

In tribute to this elevation and to honour the local men who fought and died there, stadiums took to naming their single-tiered stands ‘Spion Kop’s’. 

The name is still in general use but it is Anfield where the name has become synonymous for the most passionate and noisy crowds and are an intricate part of the history of Anfield.

The fans that use this stand are known as ‘Kopites’, but it is not the only stand in Anfield to bear a famous name.

There are a lot of other stadiums out there, but very few have stands with a famous name like Anfield does. Take a look at the history of Liberty Stadium to find out the details on Swansea's football grounds.

Anfield Road Stand Redevelopment

After years of wondering whether the FC would leave the stadium behind and build a brand new stadium, the decision was finally taken to stay there and expand the iconic stadium.

After extensive work was undertaken to increase capacity of the Main Stand, the club’s owners Fenway Sports are eager to enter Phase Two of the expansion.

This would see the Anfield Road Stand being redeveloped and by 2019 it is hoped that this will boost capacity to between 61,000 and 62,000 while also redeveloping the nearby housing.
