This is Anfield: The Documentary is an official 2016 production by LFCTV which was uploaded to the club website. It tells the story of the history of Liverpool FC’s iconic home, from the first ball being kicked in the late 19th century all the way through to the recent Main Stand expansion, with contributions from various people who were involved in the latest construction project.

The documentary goes back more than 150 years, to when the land was farmland which was soon to be inhabited by Liverpool’s bitter rivals Everton. The hour long documentary explains how that piece of farmland slowly became what it is today, a stadium which holds 54,074 spectators and home to one of the worlds most famous and most successful football clubs.

The film includes contributions from past managers, playing legends including Kenny Dalglish, Phil Thompson, Jamie Carragher, and Steven Gerrard, academics, and historians. It also uses previously unseen footage and photographic stills, including the earliest known footage of the Main Stand from 1901.
