? Liverpool’s ongoing redevelopment of Anfield could see the famous stadium join Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in hosting NFL games in years to come, as well as concerts and GAA events such as hurling and Gaelic football.

The Anfield Road redevelopment is currently in its public consultation phase.

Anfield could give NFL action a northern UK base, while Liverpool’s historic Irish influence could Gaelic sporting events popular in the city – however, Forbes points out that the GAA’s stance is that there are no current plans to host games in England.

Liverpool hope to have the Anfield Road work done in time for the 2022/23 season, which would then open the door to host other sports if the permission is in place.

Hosting NFL games in Liverpool in the relatively near future could be huge, with London hosting all 28 ‘International Series’ matches played in the UK so far, plus another four planned in 2020.

Most of those have been played at Wembley, but rugby stadium Twickenham played host in 2016 and 2017, while Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was specifically designed with NFL in mind.

A report from Forbes claims the complete expansion could include permission to host a variety of other events like American football, boxing, Gaelic games and music concerts, with the possibility included in the latest set of proposals.
