Virtual tour of Anfield Stadium

Whether you've ever been to Anfield or not you should be able to feel part of the ground from wherever you are.Anfield is the home of Liverpool Football Club and has been since its origins way back in 1892.  Prior to that the ground was the home of Everton.  The ground has gone through extensive redevelopment over the years to get to what it is today.  The current all-seater stadium holds a total of 45,522 fans.  This is considerably smaller than the record 61,905 maximum in the ground back in 1952 for a game against Wolves.
