If the UK and Ireland are chosen to host Euro 2028, no games will be held at Anfield.

Which England stadiums will be hosting matches

According to reports, just six stadiums in England may be used to host matches, with Anfield being left off the current list of 10 possibilities.

Wembley, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the London Stadium, Villa Park, Stadium MK, Old Trafford, the Etihad, Everton’s proposed Bramley Moore Dock venue, Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, and Newcastle United’s St. James’ Park are among those stadiums, as per the Times.

When it comes to Anfield, many managers have admitted that playing in Anfield is very different from other stadiums. This beautiful stadium is home to the scouser. And coaches admit when they play against the Reds, they play against the whole stadium.

The news came as a shocker when Anfield and Stamford Bridge were excluded from the Euro matches.

Why Anfield is excluded from the Euro matches

So why is Anfield not being taken into consideration when it will soon overtake Wembley as the fifth-largest stadium in the nation once the Anfield Road End extension is finished?

Because of the size of the pitch at Anfield, it is not a UEFA-required venue. Therefore, it cannot host the Europa League or Champions League finals.

The playing field of Liverpool’s home stadium is smaller than the required 105 by 68-meter size for host stadiums. For identical grounds, Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge has been disqualified.

With the development of the Anfield Road End, Liverpool had the chance to rectify issue. But doing so would have necessitated significant changes to the lowest tier of the stand, especially at the access and departure points.

Liverpool determined the bottom tier won’t be affected by the renovation work instead.
Currently, the Anfield pitch is 101 meters long, which is four meters less than what UEFA requires.
