Liverpool Revives Historic Melwood Ground As Elite Training Facility For WSL Team

Liverpool Revives Historic Melwood Ground As Elite Training

Melwood Training Facility

Liverpool have reached an agreement to repurchase their former training ground, Melwood, with plans to revamp it into a state-of-the-art "elite training facility" for their Women's Super League (WSL) team.

This announcement was made by the club on Thursday, highlighting their commitment to women's football and creating optimal conditions for the development of their WSL side.

Melwood holds significant historical importance for Liverpool's men's team, as it served as their training base starting from the 1950s. Under the guidance of legendary manager Bill Shankly, Melwood was transformed into a premier training facility in 1959. However, in 2020, the men's team relocated to a new site in Kirkby.

Liverpool's decision to repurpose Melwood for their WSL team stems from their desire to establish an elite training environment. The club aims to provide a facility that will facilitate the WSL side's ability to compete at the highest level, attract top talent, and foster the development and retention of exceptional players.

In their first season back in the WSL following relegation in 2020, Liverpool's women's team secured a respectable seventh-place finish. The club has a storied history in women's football, having clinched the WSL title in 2013 and 2014.
