Anfield will not be able to host any matches should the UK and Ireland win their bid to host Euro 2028, and here we explain why.

If the UK and Ireland’s Euro 2028 bid goes on to be successful, there’s every chance matches will be played on Merseyside, but not at Anfield!

Reports suggest there may only be six stadiums in England that would host matches, with Anfield excluded from the current list of 10 options.

So why is Anfield not being considered, despite the fact it will soon be the fifth-largest stadium in the country once the expansion of the Anfield Road End has been completed?

This results in a minimum overall available area of 120m x 80m and a preferred overall area of 125m x 85m.

The size of Anfield’s pitch means it is not a UEFA required stadium, which is the same reason why it’s unable to host Europa League or Champions League finals.

The playing surface at Liverpool’s home stadium is smaller than the fixed dimensions of 105m by 68m that host stadiums must have.
